Farewell, hurricane season

No major U.S. landfalls this year. Sorry, AccuWeather.

This windy, cold, gray day in New Orleans was also the last day of the 2010 hurricane season, which means you can go ahead and eat some of those canned goods, drink the bottled water and concentrate on more seasonal terrors. You can also look back at some of the annual meteorological forecasts, some of which were accurate (NOAA!) and some of which were scarier but off the mark (Accuweather!).

If you want to kiss off the season with a non-hurricane party, the group Evacuteer (volunteers organized to help those without transportation out of the city if an evacuation is called) is having a party Dec. 9 to bid the season goodbye. Tickets are $25 and there will be food, music and all the usual hoopla you find at a New Orleans party. (Oh, and probably writing messages on hands with Sharpies.)
