Call me stupid, but we could wish for a good tropical, subtropical, or nor’easter storm around here. Haven’t even had a hint of one this season.

La Niña will probably keep that from happening. The jet stream needs to shift for y’all to get much rain.

Thanks for the reminder, Bryan. I took my eye off the ball… too soon.

Well Olga got her act together to become a tropical storm, but she’s tearing herself up over the mountains of Hispaniola. It still looks like Yucatan on Saturday. One of the annoying things about La Niña periods is the extension of the season, but the water is already cooling, so development beyond a cat 1 isn’t likely.
