It's mid-July -- no tropical cyclones

So, it's a strange year on our march to Armageddon. We've had cool, rainy temperatures, which I've been attributing to glacial melt, and no names storms. I heard some news guy say that Tropical Storm Carlos was the second named storm of the season -- that's right, the Atlantic has been so unforthcoming that the media is now blending our oceans.

This is after a year in which every identified tropical cyclone in the North Atlantic became, I believe, a hurricane. It's a nice experience, but of course I assume it's a transition to a much worse state of affairs. It doesn't seem like there's anything you can do about that, though, so you may as well enjoy the hurricanelessness while it lasts.
