Dang It

While the rest of the country is going through or finishing with Autumn, South Florida is still stuck in tropical mode. I've never seen such a rainy October, with little to no dry weather. I'm not complaining, though, since the bureaucrats are still saying that Lake Okeechobee isn't full enough and there may be another drought come spring. If those same bureaucrats hadn't panicked last hurricane season and emptied half the lake into the Atlantic Ocean in anticipation of deathly flooding - supposedly to be caused by the weak 1930's dike that surrounds Lake Okeechobee - we wouldn't be in this mess. Perhaps if they had waited until there was a REAL threat before emptying the lake.....but the media set up a frenzy last year, and the bureaucrats complied.

Anyway - here is the picture of what might be heading this way:

If Noel does head this way, it should be a tropical storm, which will do minimal damage. I'm hoping for at LEAST one day off from work because of this.....
