First Storm August 12th. Late Start to 1950 Hurricane Season. Ended up with 11 Hurricanes and 6 Major Hurricanes. Late Start Doesn't Always Mean Slow Season. The above is a tidbit from this link that discusses the very slow starting, but very busy hurricane season of 1950. Nothing formed, not even a weak storm close in or a very weak tropical storm that lasted a few days in early June. Nothing all through June nor July, but then a wave began to show signs of development.  As you can see below, it was a very busy hurricane season. 

Love this book!

Nothing. The A Storm formed in Mid August and they kept forming and forming for the next two months with some late bloomers going into November. 

Never count out a hurricane season because it seems slow in June and July. In August something catches fire, begins to spin and all the discussion on a busted season is buried in a blitz of Hurricane News and often multiple landfalls. 

In Miami 1950 is kind of legendary for Hurricane King, a small compact hurricane that made landfall and is often refrenced to Hurricane Cleo that also made landfall in the same area of the city. 

Actually made landfall as a small....
....but a strong hurricane!
It gets ignored and forgotten by many.

A typical October track for Cuba and Florida!

Stay tuned.
It's not over til it's over!

Ah, but Hurricane Easy was much more interesting, as I documented in my novel, O Little Central Florida Town of Bedlam. Mother Nature doesn't play favorites, but she sure is vindictive. Also, of note, is the storm's interaction with Hurricane Dog ala the Fujiwhara phenomenon. Sniff, sniff...
