It's been a very calm year on the hurricane front, and the governor of Florida says he's giving God the credit for that.
Governor Charlie Crist says he has had prayer notes placed in the Western Wall in Jerusalem each year since his election in 2006. Since then, no major storms have hit Florida.
Crist says he inserted a note in the Wailing Wall two years ago that read, "Dear God, please protect our Florida from storms and other difficulties. Charlie."
But Crist emphasized that he gives God - not himself - credit for Florida's lack of hurricanes.
