The official hurricane season ends tomorrow, but with today being the one month anniversary of Hurricane Sandy making landfall, what better way to celebrate than with a time lapse video compressing the entire 2012 Hurricane Season into four and a half minutes?

My goodness Sandy (who first appears around 3:33) was a big girl, wasn't she? As for basic notes on the hurricane season, NOAA points out:

This season was a relatively active one—with 7 more storms than the historical average. Though the official season lasts from June 1—November 30th, 2012 started off early with Alberto and Beryl appearing in May. Later on, Isaac pummeled the Gulf Coast, and in October, Sandy caused destruction throughout the Northeast.

If only crazy hurricanes were as peaceful on the ground as they look from above...
