I thought hurricane season was over.

I will never understand Saul Silver’s infatuation with the 80's sitcom 227 in the movie Pineapple Express. Silver, played by James Franco, recites this line from the show, and it makes me wishful for a time when hurricane season was “over.”

Wishful because it supposes that there is an ending to hurricane season. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration cites that the Atlantic hurricane season officially began on June 1, 2018, and ends on November 30, 2018; however, millions of people are still reeling from the 2017 hurricane season. In 2016, the first system was reported on January 12, and the last system dissipated on November 25. Indeed, I thought hurricane season was over.
