Slow Start to Hurricane Season (North Atlantic)

I don't want to jinx us, but has anyone noticed the slow start to the North Atlantic hurricane season?

We are now better than seven weeks into the season and, as far as I've been able to determine, we've only had one relatively short lived Tropical Depression (TD 1):

2009 Atlantic Hurricane Season

Using the 1944-2005 average (which doesn't include some recent highly active seasons), we could normally expect one named storm by now:

Hopefully this trend will continue!!
