Happy First Hurricane of the Season!

Bertha upgraded from a tropical storm to a full on hurricane this morning by obtaining winds of up to 75 miles per hour (the minimal required to be defined as a hurricane).  Bertha is only the second named storm this season (the first, Arthur, only made it to tropical storm level).  I wonder if meteorologists ever form pools on how many storms there are going to be in a given hurricane season.  Maybe they place bets on the strength the storms will grow to.  Is there something sick about that?  I think not.
