Dog Days Arrive...

We have been rather fortunate for most of this summer in that all the rainfall has kept temperatures just hot and not obnoxious…until yesterday and today.  Yikes!  95+ sucks as it really places the body at stress if you are outside for any length of time.   It appears our rain chances will go back up tomorrow into the weekend as an upper low over north Florida heads our way.  Upper lows have cold air with them (as opposed to upper highs with warmer air) and that makes for an unstable situation where daytime heating will bubble up daily storms.  The benefit is less hot temperatures and I can put up with the scattered storms. 


Speaking of upper lows, we have many over the Tropics and that is good news as they make for a hostile environment for any development.  None of the models are showing tropical storms/hurricanes in the Gulf or Caribbean during the next 10-14 days.  Stay tuned!


Finally, am I the only one who thinks the coverage of the O.J. parole hearing was overblown by the media?  Every network (even the financial ones) covered it live.  OMG…was it that dull a news day?  Even the soap operas were pre-empted & I promise many loyal viewers were hacked about that!   One wonders about the judgment of those in charge.  Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo begins next Thursday.
