Tropical Storm Elsa strengthened into the first hurricane of the 2021 Atlantic storm season on Friday as it battered the eastern Caribbean, where officials closed schools, businesses and airports.

The storm could impact Florida early next week and officials are urging residents there to make preparations.
Friday morning, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he is putting together a potential emergency order as Elsa approaches. DeSantis said South Florida could see tropical storm force winds as soon as Sunday night.
Sustained winds were near 75 mph, making the storm a Category 1 hurricane, according to an 11 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center. Hurricane Elsa was located 5 miles south of St. Vincent and was moving west-northwest at 29 mph.

looked like Elsa was going right over my house. Forecasts say that when Elsa goes over Cuba it may weaken and/or change direction. In the meantime, Elsa’s path has shifted a bit to the east, and also I am on the lookout for a virgin and/or some treasure to bury in my back yard; seems to work for the Pinellas beaches!

Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

without throwing hurrcanes in the mix.
I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

We have been having interruptions with our electric at the house lately and every time it goes out, my first concern is “did they take down the Grid”. Of course “they” could be a wide range of characters.
Be careful out there, indeed!
