I love hurricanes (incidentally, the word is correctly pronounced “hur’-ǝ-kin”). The last few years, despite official predictions of many storms making landfall, there have been very few interesting (i.e. impactful in my environs) storms, and none so far this year.
But Tropical Depression Nine is looking good. The computer models have it coming over the Florida peninsula pretty much from south to north.
Interestingly enough, if things stay on track, the storm could wreak havoc with the Republican National Convention to be held in Tampa next week. What was that thing that Pat Robertson said about God visiting natural disasters on impenitent sinners? Perhaps the GOP has something — or Some One — else about which to worry than the Presidential campaign? If the storm does become a hurricane, it’s name will be Isaac. How biblical!
