“In each of us two natures are at war… the good and the evil. All our lives the fight goes on between them, but one of them must conquer. In our own hands lies the power to choose. What we want most to be we are.” – Dr. Henry Jekyll

His Name Is Ernie

It's pretty damn ironic in my mind that the first official Atlantic Hurricane set to make landfall on the United States is named Ernesto... or Ernie. For those who don't understand the significance of that name... your probably better off.

Ernie however is currently projected to smash into Florida after going over Haiti, the Caymans, Cuba and of course Puerto Rico. The forecasters are saying it could go as high as a Category 3... but I don't think so. There's too much land it needs to run over before hitting water again to strengthen. I may be wrong... in fact I probably will be... but I think at most Florida will see a Category 2.

The problem is... those Floridians are so damn prepared... they could withstand a Category 6 and not break a sweat. Practice makes perfect dontcha know. We would need to be activated by Monday morning for a Monday night deployment to be there before landafall. Usually they give us 24 hours though... and my pager has remained silent. So in all likelihood... unless he turns or goes west a bit... I'll still be here. Damn.
