Can't help feeling this week like we're getting away with something. The 2006 Atlantic hurricane season ends Thursday, and it's been nearly two months since we've even had a storm (Isaac) to talk about. The season tallied just nine named storms, and only the last five reached hurricane strength; most remained at sea. Only the remnants of Hurricane Ernesto triggered headaches here. The Sept. 1-2 tempest brought flooding and high winds that downed trees and power lines. Ernie's 3.63 inches of rain ended a drought.
