BOHICA - the loop current is HOT

This bodes ill for any Gulf of Mexico coastal interests and even some far inland who can suffer the enormous consequences of flooding from a strong post-hurricane system sweeping through.

I just read a simialr article on another site. I agree it could be an "exciting" season.

Love it! I hadn't seen the term BOHICA since I got out of the USAF in 1975.

Oh, lovely.

I feel like my most of my boating activities involve running from hurricanes. Getting out of Pensacola sometime in June because the marinas there require evacuation when a named storm is in the vicinity. We are headed for Lake Ponchatrain.

Way better than P'cola and better than most places along the Gulf coast between P'cola and Nawlins unless you take into account a few of the private canal systems like Ono Island where my brother has his GB42 tucked away down behind a lot of tall hurricane-roof houses.

No, just one of many USAF terms like SSMFWICC*.
