3. Mine. I'm in TPA.

This was going to be bad for some. This was going to challenge the uninitiated.

Stress started as it approached the Leewards.

The weathermen have to show their technologies and skills to save lives. Some old time Floridians still got bagged.


There was overreaction and under reaction.

Stress stayed for a long time.

Wisdom espoused escape into long lines coming and going. Safety first.

Escape was limited. Preparation calmed the nerves.

The portents suspicious, played games.

Calculations ran a muck.

Best plans worked to a degree.

This was a focused episode on who we are as a nation.

Luck doesn't happen without effort.

Waiting and praying are for the reliant.

Study the evidence and play your best cards.

Clean up after your mistakes and get better for the next one.
