Four Storms

 It's not every day that we see four named storms on the same NOAA map.  Fiona near Nova Scotia, Gaston churning away in the central Atlantic, Hermine popping up suddenly off the coast of Africa, and Ian forming in the Caribbean.

Ian is the one that concerns us in the short run.  This morning, the warning cone covers pretty much the entire state of Florida.  This will firm up in the coming days and may change considerably.

Hurricane season ain't over yet.

I'm not a weatherman, don't even play one on TV. However, it looks like the High system that has parked over N Texas and Oklahoma most of the Summer will block Ian and push it towards the Florida coast. Probably close to Tampa. Anyway, I think Texas and Louisiana are likely safe. Of course, wont really know until Sunday or so. The Water in the Gulf is bathtub warm ( ie around 86F) it should fuel up a heck of a storm.
