Here is my outlook for the 2020 hurricane season. This season will most likely be very active and will rival past seasons like 2017, 2010, and 1995 respectively. This season will be unique as we are dealing with a pandemic that will make any evacuation efforts needed due to an impending storm even more stressful. Areas above that are highlighted in red/orange are at the highest risk of seeing a landfalling named storm while areas in yellow/green are at the lowest risk. This DOES NOT mean that low risk areas cannot see storms nor does it mean that high risk areas will see storms. The map above should not be used to make decisions about the upcoming season but rather used to give you a general idea of who is at the greatest risk. You should be prepared every season no matter where you live.
This year I am predicting:
•17-23 named storms (including tropical storms Arthur and Bertha)
4-6 major hurricanes
This prediction is based on several factors.
1. Being that we will either be in an ENSO neutral state or weak La Niña for the peak of the season
2. The water in the Atlantic Basin and especially in the Gulf of Mexico are largely above average
3. Weaker African Trade winds
4. Stronger African Monsoon
5. Average-below average Saharan Air Layer
We can always hope for a low impact season, but that in its self is not a plan. Make sure you are well prepared this season and give yourself plenty of time to evacuate if need be.
Make sure you have food and water to last at least 3 days, batteries, gasoline, a working generator, and updated insurance policies. #hurricaneseason#atlanticocean

Hahahaha... had to, if you live here, you totally get it... 😆 :
Here’s what I’ve been reading recently. I’m finding it increasingly difficult to give a numerical rating to the books I read. I considered giving them each two ratings, one for readability, and one for enjoyment—but decided against it because my hand was in the way, but maybe I’ll give it a go in the future. For the time being, I still think this is a pretty good gauge of the books I would recommend, so here we go: Hurricane Season by Melchor I found particularly hard to rate because it is a weird, fevered, stream-of-conscious book about witchcraft and abuse, that is both brutal and brilliant. There were moments I really wanted to put it down, and other moments when I was enthralled by it, and in the end it felt memorable and boldly creative. As for Normal People, I think the writing is compelling, the story moves at a clip and has brilliant internal characterization but I don’t think it would be particularly memorable, or revolutionary if there wasn’t this teeming crowd behind it. I went back and forth between giving it a 3.5 or 4, but landed on a 4 because I really do think it’s well written. A few favorites from this month are Callan Wink’s Dog, Run, Moon— a short story collection that felt like a cool breath of air, Albert Camus’ The Plague, which was both haunting and illuminating, and C Pam Zhang’s How Much of These Hills is Gold, which is a refreshing and poetic reincarnation of the contemporary Western. Anyway, what have you been reading recently? *some of these were gifted to me by publishers

Segundona com feriadinho aqui nos 🇺🇸 “Memorial Day “ gostaria de estar fazendo meu cardiozinho na praia , recarregando minhas energias pra iniciar a semana com aquele gás mas a chuva não para 😱⛈.
Dizem que essa chuva incessante é decorrente da hurricane season 🌪 que está chegando com força total iniciando em julho, isso me assusta um pouco mas quem mora aqui a muito tempo e já está acostumado fala que é só se preparar, resumindo “se organizar “ sem pânico , sem desespero e sim esperar o inevitável.
Talvez nossa falha seja deixar tudo pra última hora e tentar dar o famoso “jeitinho” mas isso não funciona aqui .
Americans usually say : “ If you have to do it , do the right way “ 🌪👊🏼🔥
