Forum said introduce myself. Forum said slightly off topic.

Well, I wondered why a certain financial writer said weather and prices could not be predicted. So I put hurricane numbers into my price models. It started my interest in weather forecasting.
Here's what came out: 4 - 7 Atlantic/Gulf hurricanes in 2009 (but I think closer to 4 than 7).

Interesting. Are you predicting named storms or hurricanes only?

Sounds reasonable. Don't think we'll have 2004 again this year! ;-)
