OK, I know I said I was going to take the day off from posting, but this weekend, like magic, Tropical Storm Hermine appeared!

It looks kind of Harry. Quite the Sirius storm! Perhaps we should Ron away before it comes in and Fawkes us over!

OK, now that I got the junior-high-level Harry Potter character puns out of my system, in all seriousness, it is coming right for us. That’s not funny. I need to run and refresh my hurricane supplies and prep my home right friggin’ now. According to NOAA, this one might flip into a hurricane right before it hits land.

“HERMINE IS MOVING TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHWEST NEAR 13 MPH…20 KM/HR…AND THIS GENERAL MOTION IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT DAY OR TWO. ON THE FORECAST TRACK…THE CENTER OF HERMINE IS EXPECTED TO APPROACH THE COAST OF NORTHEASTERN MEXICO OR EXTREME SOUTHERN TEXAS IN THE WARNING AREA TONIGHT.

MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS HAVE INCREASED TO NEAR 50 MPH…85 KM/HR…WITH HIGHER GUSTS. ADDITIONAL STRENGTHENING IS FORECAST AND HERMINE COULD APPROACH HURRICANE STRENGTH PRIOR TO LANDFALL.”

Off to go hurricane shopping now…

EDIT : MSNBC and CNN and FOX are actually covering this!
