Alberto’s stay in the cooler water close to the coast sapped its strength and now it is heading out to sea.

We’re getting started early this year (though not by much).

I can only wonder which disaster will strike the Gulf Coast this year, a high-category hurricane or Mitt Rmoney’s [sic] victory. Or both.

Take me now, Lord; I’m tired of preparing for disasters…

We have been getting Invests for a couple of months now, but this one came off the coast and found the Gulf Stream, so it could spin up. The La Niña condition is gone from the Pacific, so who can guess what will happen?

With Romney, to know him is to loathe him. The base is not going to come out for him unless he can get a real wingnut for a VP candidate, and that kills him with the swing voters.

Rmoney is indeed unpopular with the GOP base, but his campaign has more money than God, and in American politics, the candidate with the most TV ads almost always wins. I shall be surprised if Rmoney doesn’t win, and chagrined if he does. Of course, an Obama victory will not make me happy, either… some of us are just hard to please. 🙂
