Tropical Storm Florence

Tropical Storm Florence is a big storm that has already swallowed some other local weather systems, and it has the potential to be a major hurricane, or nothing.

There is another disturbance about 800 miles away, and if the two storms approach each other they can disrupt any further development. At the moment nothing is certain.

Primary Day – VOTE!

It is primary day in Florida.

If you are a registered voter, even if you are not registered in a party, get to the polls and vote. While the party members are making their selections for the general election, there are always non-partisan offices on the ballot and usually a few referendums that they want to sneak by the crowd.

If you don’t vote, you can’t complain.

Local information available at Okaloosa County Supervisor of Elections.

Update: Here’s the Florida Department of State official results web site.

Update2: The Republicans have selected Charlie Crist [governor], Tom Lee [CFO], and Cruella de Harris [comedy relief]. The Democrats have selected Jim Davis [governor] and ‘Skip’ Campbell [attorney general].

Locally the sales tax referendum crashed and burned.

This was not a comfortable night for incumbents, as many lost their jobs in local races.
