    Oscar Wilde wrote a book on it.

    On Hurricane Season 2019? That's pretty cool.

    I'm in Coastal Georgia and work for a DME/Oxygen supplier here. We have been holding our breath to see whether we needed to go ahead and execute Emergency Preparedness procedures. The way it looks NOW, we aren't planning to (at least not today, tomorrow remains to be seen) but man, the waiting is almost the worst part about a hurricane. At least once it is bearing down on you, you know what to expect. And the projected path can change 4 times a day up until it actually makes landfall.

    I'm sending good juju to everyone on the coast, for sure.

    I've been lonely lately, ok?

    The puns are always intended.

    Notice a 2013 storm named Dorian that did the same thing. So far.

    That's going to be normal every year soon.

    It just seems like it always waits until as close to Labor Day as possible and then BAM! insta-hurricanes.

    Since 1851, at least 25 hurricanes have hit or brushed North America on the Labor Day weekend, including seven in Florida, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

    The worst (so far):

    The 1935 Labor Day hurricane (formally known as Hurricane Three) was the most intense Atlantic hurricane to make landfall on record in terms of pressure,[1] and tied with Hurricane Dorian for the strongest landfalling Atlantic hurricane by maximum sustained winds, with winds of 185 mph (295 km/h) at landfall. It was also the most intense Atlantic hurricane on record until Hurricane Gilbert in 1988. The fourth tropical cyclone, third tropical storm, second hurricane, and second major hurricane of the 1935 Atlantic hurricane season, the Labor Day hurricane was the first known Category 5 hurricane on record to strike the contiguous United States.
