10. We noticed it here yesterday.
I am in SW Ala.
There was a nice breeze coming from the NE of us, the air felt light and dry.
Mr. Dixie said he could smell "sea air" so we checked the weather and sure enough..alberto.
Which is moving to the W/SW now.
But, because hurricane winds move counter clockwise, we got the benefit of some very nice clear mild weather.
Hopefully that will be the closest a hurricane comes to our area ( but reality says probably not)

7. It does seem early. Here in the Tampa Bay area I keep wondering about convention time
There hasn't been a landfall here in I think about 100 years, but with the RNC coming it would figure.

9. They really picked a bad time to visit Tampa.
The coastal South should be avoided for big engagements during hurricane season. We've seen a lot of activity in recent years.
