Still Watching Elsa

 The cone is starting to firm up for Hurricane Elsa, which is expected to hi the southern tip of Florida late Monday or early Tuesday as a strong tropical storm.  People who have never been in the path of a tropical storm don't realize how huge these things are.  A typical storm might have tropical-storm-force winds 50 miles from the center of the storm.  A simple calculation gives the area affected, which can be over 7800 square miles, and it's moving constantly.

We will continue to keep a weather eye on this thing.

The good news is that it will beat its brains out on the southern flanks of Cuba's mountains. Not great news for Cubans.
