The end (?) of hurricane season in Texas

According to SciGuy, in the past 150 years, only three hurricanes have hit the Texas coast after September 24, the most recent being Jerry in 1989. The 24th is a key date, since it's when Rita made landfall in 2005, though technically it did so in Louisiana. Be that as it may, we're in the home stretch, and we should have smooth sailing from here on out. But still don't go drinking all that bottled water just yet. You never know.
