First Tropical Storm of the Season

It looks as if we have our first tropical storm of the season.  They haven't named it yet, but from listening to the news, this is the biggest thing to hit since the meteor that hit the Yucatan and killed all the dinosaurs..

I'm not making light of it, but I do believe that the hype is over-played.  The thing doesn't even have a name yet.  But, here's that the National Weather Service is prognosticating.

Okay, fine, it's going to rain here on Thursday.  We've seen rain on Thursday at least once before.

Forgive me if I adopt a wait-and-see attitude on this one.  It might turn into a Cat 5, and make Katrina look like a walk in the park, or it might miss us completely.

The new advisory system seems tailored for advertisers and after the drought of storms we've had for the last couple seasons they're really hoping for a good one. It'd prove Trump wrong too.

As close as it is to landfall, I doubt it will strengthen very far into hurricane wind speeds, if it gets there at all.
