Today officially marks the end of the US Hurricane Season. As a Floridian let me say, I am glad it is over. 4 major hurricanes hitting Florida in one year was extremely stressful and hurtful to my pocketbook, but I do have comfort in knowing I am even more prepared for next year's season.

But even as hurricane season ends today, something is brewing in the Atlantic, hopefully it's not OTTO

End of hurricane season could be marked by a new storm
Aptly symbolizing this harrowing and historic year of hurricanes, a named storm appeared to be forming in the distant Atlantic Ocean today -- the last day of the official six-month season.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in West Miami-Dade County said an area of disturbed weather about 800 miles east of Bermuda continued to acquire tropical characteristics overnight and thunderstorm activity became more concentrated near the center.

''If this trend continues, subtropical or tropical storm advisories may be issued later this morning,'' the hurricane center said. ``In the meantime, marine interests should monitor this gale center.''

now if I only win the lottery and build my "dome home" everything will be alright.

I guess this is the storm they are watching:

let's hope that one stays far away from the US coastline and just spins itself out in the Atlantic. I've already packed away my hurricane supplies and have x-mas stuff out, it just can't happen.

One December 1st hits, that's the official end. So, it's cool. We still have a day left

Last year one (Tropical Storm Peter) formed December 7th - rare, but not unheard of. Last year was different though, Ana formed April 20th....but the start of the hurricane season isn't until June first.
Early start, late finish.

Hurricanes have been documented in every month of the year. They are more common June - November, which is why the season runs during those months.
