It’s December 1. That means that as of midnight (ET), the Atlantic hurricane season is officially over until June 1.
This is the ninth year we in South Florida have gone without a major hurricane. The last one of any note here in Miami was Wilma in October 2005. I am sure there are all sorts of meteorological reasons why we’ve not been hit while others have (e.g. Irma, Sandy), but whatever it is, I’m glad we can get rid of our stash of Dinty Moore and Nature Valley bars for a while.
