I think I've heard on TV that patterns of these intense storms can continue for something like 30 years......

Yea but wev'e been in an "upswing" for a few years. They get more and more intense before dropping into a lull for a while (meaning lesser storms). That's what I have heard anyway.

You're right. I only remembered that there are periods in time in which there are intense hurricanes and that they last for a good amount of time.

Now being classified as potentially 5+ (since there is no category 6)...and possibly the most powerful storm to make US landfall in recorded history unless it loses power soon....my thoughts are with you down in Texas, and I hope that everyone gets out OK.

In case anyone feels the need to properly track this thing:

I know that it has put the kibosh on some reptile and fish orders we were expecting this week.
