But Lt. Col. Jerry Sneed is loving the lack of hurricane activity
We're almost four months into the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season and southeast Louisiana has not been threatened by any tropical weather yet.
It's too early to put the season to bed, but how is the city of New Orleans' public safety chief, Lt. Col. Jerry Sneed, feeling about the lack of storms so far?
"I'm very happy. It's been a wonderful season as far as I'm concerned," Sneed said in an interview with 99.5FM.
But Sneed cautions that we need to keep our guard up and not get complacent because we live in an area prone to hurricanes.
Forecasters projected an above average season, with up to 19 named storms, and it hasn't happened. But Sneed doesn't fault the forecasters.
"I think they use all the data they have, they come up with their best estimate and sometimes they're a little wrong. And I think this is one of those seasons that maybe has fooled them," Sneed said.
