"So," their father said as he drove. "When is hurricane season?"

"I know," shouted Julia. She raised her hand as if she were in class, and then she lowered it when she remembered where she was. She blushed a little at her mistake.

"Go ahead," their father said.

"Hurricane season is June 1 through November 30," she said.

Robbie was surprised. "That's right now!" He looked excited.

"That's what I'm worried about," their mother said.

Their father quizzed them some more, and Julia got most of the answers right. She knew there were five categories of hurricanes and that the winds in a hurricane blow in a counter-clockwise direction. She knew hurricanes had an "eye" in the center of the winds.

Before long, they were at the coast.
