Katrina and the Waves
With a nod to the 80's one-hit wonder group, Tropical Storm Katrina developed over the past 48 hours and is heading toward the East Florida coast. The "waves" will be coming too, along with associated storm surge. It's perched in the Atlantic Ocean just off shore from Fort Lauderdale and will probably make landfall tonight as a weak Category One hurricane (after last year, weak is good)! Within 24 hours the storm will cross the state and exit "stage left" near Fort Myers. Most likely it will turn northerly in the Gulf of Mexico and hit the panhandle before all is said and done. Guess it's time to "batten down the hatches", whatever that means! Could be worse though, Tokyo is about to get hit with another typhoon today. Count your blessings!
