I'm looking forward to President Biden's visit to the storm ravaged areas of Florida

And encourage him to hug Gov. Ron DeSantis.

After all, remember what President Obama's hug did for then Gov. Charlie Crist? (The Hug That Killed My Republican Career) I can only hope that a Biden hug would do the same for DeSantis!

Of course, Biden does not have race going for him as Obama did - but it could still damage DeSantis in the eyes of MAGA Republicans.

I can only hope.

Got home from a trip today. Hurricane Ian may hit us Wednesday.

Right now, according to both the National Weather Service forecast (https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at4+shtml/090354.shtml?tswind120#contents) and the spaghetti models on Mike's Weather Page (https://spaghettimodels.com/) St. Marks on the coast will be dead center and Ian will head almost straight north to come across Tallahassee.

I live NE of Tallahassee, much closer to Georgia than to the coast, so usually storms have faded a lot by the time they get to us. But with our canopy roads and overhead lines, usually the power is knocked out for days even with just tropical storms or strong thunderstorms.

Now we have a whole house generator and can set up the generator we bought a few years ago to power the well, so it won't be as bad as in years past. We've had years when the power was out for nearly a week. I'm getting far too old to deal with that, thus the investment in the generator..

No matter where it hits, I hope we are stay safe.
