Could make a run at the strongest Atlantic basin hurricane on record. Currently 4th by the sounds of it.


Labor Day hurricane of 1935 will be tough to beat, but as of now winds appear similar.

Scary thing about the Labor Day hurricane is that it was much smaller and had a lower minimum central pressure, so that core must have been immensely powerful. I actually believe it was stronger than pegged in reanalysis..likely over 200mph sustained.

Allen in 1980 was 190mph at landfall..that’s the record to beat, I think?

My thermometer ran out of batteries mid month but it was filled with a surprisingly normal amount of rain, no 100 degree days, and overall pleasant high temperatures. This summer was one of the best I have ever experienced here.
I have to screenshot my photos otherwise they post sideways

I honestly have to say the same this has been the best summer that I can remember in my lifetime. However I’m only 20 so my memory isn’t as extensive as a lot of you guys. Looking back at all the summers since 2005, the closest example I can find was 2007. Pretty similar statistically besides June of this year.
