Now there's nothing particularly weird about that headline ... EXCEPT THAT I READ IT EVERY YEAR!!!!
Every summer, for at least the last ten and maybe more like 20, I read/hear how THIS year is going to be the one where, either by quantity or by size of storms, we're going to get our collective
asses kicked.
Except that, for the most part, large hurricanes making landfall on the continental U.S. have been below average in recent years but nobody ever changes predictions after they're wrong they
just go ahead and make the next one figuring no one will remember the last. And of course trumpeting that this is going to be a somewhat average-ish year for storms doesn't make the cut
when determining what leads the news.


Seems that this headline hit the mark.
