Hurricane Matthew: Stay Safe ... by gimleteye

Hurricanes are odd beasts, and it has been many years since we've seen one rake the Atlantic coast of Florida. How irritating to watch politicians squeezed together to fit the camera frame on local news, apparently organized to showcase those running for re-election in a few weeks. (Showboaters, know who you are.) Too bad viewers can't add emojis to scroll across the screen at the same time.

Just the other day, I drove the length of the interstate from points north and wondered where this hurricane would make landfall and how the landscape would be changed. It is hard to imagine, early this morning, that Matthew is churning so close to Miami that you could reach it in just a few hours by boat. Stay safe, all.
