There were extremely few tornadoes and hurricanes in the US. We are soon headed into our eighth year without a major hurricane, the longest such period since the Civil War.
This past summer was also the quietest on record for tornadoes.
I drove across Colorado twice, on two different roads this weekend – and did not see any fire damage. Driving up I-25 past Colorado Springs I strained to see the Waldo Canyon Fire, and couldn’t find it. I couldn’t see any fire damage near the Air Force Academy, and there have been very few fires here in Colorado over the last three months.
