2014 Atlantic hurricane season summary

To those who have been subscribed and reading my posts since the humble beginnings in 1996, I want to thank you for your continued support and interest.  And to the many more recent readers, thanks for joining!

I have sent out approximately 950 tropical updates over the years.  Those updates have spanned 274 tropical storms, 122 hurricanes, 64 major hurricanes, and 36 retired storm names.  WHEW... my fingers are tired just thinking about that!

My season summary to wrap up the 2014 hurricane season is now available on the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang blog, and again, thanks for reading and sharing!
