Hurricane Season -- Over?

On the last day
of the hurricane season,
a disturbance pops up
in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

No threat to Florida
No threat to any other land area.
It will drift north out to sea—
and just ...  die.

If it grows
into a tropical storm,
it will be named Valerie.

The official hurricane season ended yesterday, November 30.  Unfortunately, hurricanes don’t have calendars.

Florida was spared this year, for the seventh year in a row.  It seems the hurricanes went North this year.  I feel so bad for the victims of Isaac and Sandy; they wer hit much harder than I ever was here in Orlando.  Although, I will never forget Charlie.
