Here we go again. Another hurricane, another weekend shot all to hell.
Just took a look at the track of Jeanne. It is looking worse for us in eastern Hillsborough County. The storm is picking up steam - it's moving a couple miles an hour faster across the Bahamas than it was yesterday. That's a bad thing. The faster it goes, the sooner we need the jet stream to dip down and drive this puppy east off the coast. That doesn't look likely.
This one has caught everyone on the west coast napping. We were all expecting the east coast to take the bitchslap on this one - and it will. But we're going to get plenty of candy from this pinata by the time it's all over.
Let's say it holds its current predicted course. I'll still get a 60 mph wind enema during Sunday brunch. At the very least.
All of which means we go back into action at the newspaper. The Salad bowl gets a new banner and the hurricane songs to back on the Radio.Blog. Everyone in Florida goes back to get gas in their cars. (Many gas stations on the east coast have already run dry.) Everyone freaks out and starts buying whatever they can lay their opposable thumbs on at Publix.
I still have 7 cases of water in my garage. I have neighbors who have yet to take down their plywood. None of us can believe we have to do this again.
I couldn't be more pleased at this proposition.
Montana looks better every day.
My buddy Drew sent me this cartoon on Friday. Certainly seems apropos.

We've got plenty of room up here in Big Sky Country---guaranteed 100% hurricane-free!
