Hurricane-Tropical Storm Names-Atlantic 2019

Hurricane-Tropical Storm Names-Atlantic 2019; The season doesn’t officially begin till June 1 through Nov. 30. But last year, we had a tropical storm named Alberto run through at the end of May. 

According to the Old Farmers Almanacthe name hurricane is from the Native American word Hurakons meaning a great spirit who commanded the east wind. Spanish explorers used the word and named the storms after patron saints. 

Hurricane-Tropical Storm Names-Atlantic 2018A printable Hurricane Supply List

Hurricane-Tropical Storm Names-Atlantic 2018

According to the World Meteorological Organization: Since 1953, Atlantic tropical storms are named from lists originated by the National Hurricane Center. They are now maintained and updated by an international committee of the WMO.

Every six years, a whole set of new names makes its way from the  World Meteorological Organization. Names of very bad storms are never used again. No-one wants a storm named Katrina again.

Originally only women’s names were used, (I’m not even going to go into the reasoning there; it was a long time ago).  In 1979, men and women names alternated.  Six lists of names are used in rotation. When a name is removed,  (think Katrina), the Committee selects a new name at its annual  meeting.  If they run out of alphabetical names during the year, they  use Greek letters (alpha, beta, etc.).

You can use the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale to determine wind speeds . 

Category Average Wind (mph) Representative Hurricanes
Category One      74 – 95 Danny; 1997
Category Two      96 – 110 Bonnie & Georges; 1998
Category Three      111 – 129 Rita; 2005
Category Four      130 – 156 Charley; 2004
Category Five      157 + Andrew; 1992

Read about Hurricane Pet Safety here. And here.

2019 Storm Names are:

Andrea, Barry, Chantal, Dorian, Erin, Fernand, Gabrielle, Humberto, Imelda, Jerry, Karen, Lorenzo, Melissa, Nestor, Olga, Pablo, Rebekah, Sebastien, Tanya, Van. 

**On a real estate note: if you’re closing on your house when a storm is  in the area, be aware that the closing could be delayed: insurance is not issued while the storm is in our area.

Picking Blueberries – Starkey Blueberry Farm

Blueberry Picking At Starkey Blueberry Farm. You should go. Last weekend, a group of our Sailwinds Realty associates along with our Brokers went to Starkey Blueberry Farm to pick blueberries last year. The farm is  at 3100 Starkey Blvd., New Port Richey, FL. 34655. Take a look at their Facebook page here.The 2019 blueberry picking should start towards the end of March. 

It was a cloudy day but it didn’t rain. And it was warm but not hot. So we dressed appropriately, put on our hats and sunscreen and ventured forth. I was wondering if we needed to bring buckets or gloves or whatever. The last time I went picking, I was a child and Mom handled all that.

Blueberry Picking – Starkey Blueberry Farm

When we arrived, we were greeted and given a bucket to fill; they told us how much it held and what the price would be ($5/pound). Or we could buy pre-picked ones for $6/pound. Choosing to pick our own, we were also told what to look for in color and to eat any to try them out so we would know if they were sweet or tart or whatever.

Picking Blueberries At Starkey Blueberry FarmWe met up with our friends, Julia and William Labbancz who are our Brokers at Sailwinds Realty, and walked into the fields where we found several other friends. Row upon row of blueberry bushes extended for seemingly miles in all directions. So, we did what any inexperienced pickers would do; we started taste testing, pulling blueberries off different rows of bushes until we found ones that we really liked the taste of. (picture above courtesy of J. David Wright).(All other pictures by Toni).

Picking Blueberries At Starkey Blueberry Farm

Going With Friends Or Family Is Best

Going with a group of friends and/or family makes the whole experience more fun. We laughed at each others efforts to fill our buckets first or eat the most berries. After we had our buckets weighed and paid for our stash, we decided that it was time for lunch (after all those berries!). Our bucket weighed almost 5 lbs. (We really like blueberries and freezing them is so easy). Now I can make blueberry muffins, blueberry pie, blueberry wine, and everything blueberry; personally, I like them on my cereal in the mornings.

Picking Blueberries At Starkey Blueberry Farm

So, if you’re looking for a fun thing to do with the kids, try picking blueberries. There’s also a play area for the kids. And, they sell other fresh, farm produce as well. Have a fun-filled day!

BTW, the blackberry picking season is mid-late May. I can’t wait.

Have you been to Spinner’s Restaurant yet? It revolves and has spectacular beach and Gulf views.
