I think your right, I heard something about that since they started naming storms the most in any one year was 21. Wilma is #21 which ties that mark. Prayers in advance for anyone affected by this storm.

Our weather guy said tonight that the last 21 storm year was like 1921 or so and they didn't have satellites, weather planes, etc. Since some of the storms this year stayed at sea and only lasted a few days they wouldn't have known about those. So the old record may have had a few more that they didn't see. Either way it has been a rough year and we can only hope that no more serious storms will occur. OTOH my Mom's name was Wilma and she could be pretty rough when she was pissed-let's hope she's in a good mood

Latest projection this morning has it turning and coming ashore in Naples, just below Ft. Myers as a Category 2 storm.

Let's hope it keeps going southwest.......

This storm crap is just so far past old.....

This year will tie 1933 for the most storms on record for the 150 years that have been recorded. But how accurate could they have been for the first 100 years. The Keys have seen enough rain and wind this season, do not want any more.
