Default Erika could head right up the middle of Florida

Here's an update on hurricane Erika...

http://www.accuweather.com/en/weathe...ing-1/52021729

Although will likely just be a tropical storm/depression by the time it gets to Florida, it's going to sour a lot of peoples vacation plans. It's really going to be a serious rainmaker...

Unless you like to play in rough surf

I'm keeping an ear out for hwn.org just to see what I can hear.

Dang. Yankees don't vacation in Florida in Summer. Why the heck couldn't it come in January when it could do some good?

I have a guy in my shop that spends a lot of time at Disney World. He was planning a trip in the next few weeks. He likes the fall cause the kids are in school and it's cooler. Wonder if his plans are changing?

I read someplace we have had 114 or so hurricanes since one has hit Florida. Since before Sandy and Irene.

Usually we don't switch to long pants until mid January.
