Tampa or not, it’s beginning to look like you will be getting some weather, maybe early Wednesday.

The magic number is 86.6W. I want to see a location smaller than that. This evening the target has moved to the East, but it is too soon to know.

There’s a lot of empty houses on or near the beach to the East of me that could use some ‘rustic weathering’ and a real world test of their compliance with building codes. There’s no need to annoy real people who have things to do.
