Batten Down the Hatches (3 Weeks Early)!

The National Hurricane Center has announced the formation of our first named tropical storm of the 2007 hurricane season. TS Andrea spooled up off the coasts of Georgia and NE Florida today, and it's moving slowly toward the shore.

Today's Wednesday 9 May 2007.

Hurricane season officially begins Friday 1 June.

That's over THREE WEEKS EARLY, folks.

Luckily TS Andrea looks like a fairly weak beast, which could drop some much-needed rain on the fires that have made Florida smell like the world's largest outdoor barbecue pit for the past few days. But, and I want to make this abundantly clear, it's way too fucking early for this shit to start.

So, start stocking up on water and canned goods, make sure your generator's in order and you have a plan in place.

It may be a bumpy year.
