Default Atlantic Hurricane Season Contest: Name That Named Storm!

During the six month Atlantic Hurricane Season -- which runs from June 1 through November 30 -- September 10 is the apex, the statistical "busiest" day of the season storm-wise. (And it's not just our imagination; the NOAA charts point to this over past 100-odd years).

So we're thinking the odds are pretty decent ... but just which named storm or storms is anyone's guess. You can find a complete list of Atlantic storm names in ... The Hurricane Zone (whisper the name, "The Hurricane Zone," for added effect).

THE CONTEST: Which Atlantic storm(s) will be active on September 10, at any time during the day, Eastern time? Vote for none, one, or several named storms. We'll choose one of the correct respondents at random to win a Cruise Critic Cruise Essentials Pack.

Contest will be open until Sunday night at 4:24 p.m. EST.

Hey guys,

The poll is "public," meaning that your votes will be displayed for everyone to see. So when Sunday rolls around, we'll have a list to look at.

Thanks,

Dan

I voted "None" I don't think that the rest of the season will be that active. Waves, maybe, Tropical Storms, Maybe but no hurricanes on Sept 10th.

Kate<<<who is also sailing on the 19th
