I hate those words, "the lull before the storm"…. Scary!!!! My kids in Texas kept talking about it being THEIR turn to have a big hurricane. Galveston and Houston had missed them for years. WELL–it finally came. AND–oh, the damage STILL in the Galveston, Seabrook and Houston areas (from Ike) is unbelievable. They had spent many years living with the "lull before the storm"… Once the storm hit, WOOOOOOO—what a disaster.
We can look at all of the statistics in the world—but none of us know when the next big one will hit.
