Auntie Em, Is That You?

If you didn't turn on the news or the weather Monday morning, you wouldn't have known that a Tropical Storm had passed through my neck of the woods, even if you lived here.

The storm was just a lot of rain and little else, thank goodness. The last major hurricane to hit Pinellas goes back to 1921, and that streak will stay in tact for at least another storm.

I was reading that Washington Post article that theorizes a hurricane hitting Tampa Bay would rival or surpass the major damage New Orleans suffered during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. I don't think it's an impossible premise, but I'd do everything in my power not to be here to find out, I'd evacuate, if at all possible.

Another storm in the books, but the hurricane season peak isn't that far away.
