The 1976 movie, "Network" had a classic line that included, "I'm not going to take it anymore..." Hurricane Season 2005 was the worst season in recent history for the number and intensity of storms that included Katrina and Rita. Louisiana experienced so much devastation that many folks were tired of the storms, the season and the effects and aftermath. Hurricane Gustav was the worst hurricane to hit Baton Rouge in 2008. I remember it as a timber remover. Not only did we register every name on the Hurricane List in 2005 but we also grabbed an additional five storms from the National Weather Service's "Greek" list to fulfill the naming process. Recent conversations with friends and relatives in Western Pennsylvania found a similar but less destructive experience. In addition to "cabin fever," more snow removal is occurring. Outdoor activities are once again limited until the official Spring thaw and that may occur well into April.
