    We've already had a few days of 95-96 degree heat in central Virginia, which is not unusual for July but somewhat unusual for May. Was at an outdoor concert last night when a hellacious storm ripped through. My neighborhood was spared heavy damage but some places around town got crushed.

    A seemingly minor storm, which could be our first hurricane, might be significant.

    They had a pretty bad rainstorm and flash flooding down there this morning. Drains backed up and a lot of places in the city had bad street flooding. Canal Street was an actual canal at one point.

    Looking at the list of this year's names, I dread the next one on the list, Chantal. That sounds like an ass-kicker of a hurricane.

    We need this thing to go a lot farther west, or better still to cut hard east and miss NOLA. Wind speed almost doesn't matter; even as a borderline Cat 1 or a strong tropical storm the storm surge is going to play hell with the river levees. If any one of them goes, Cancer Alley is getting an enema.

    I just told my wife she'd better fill up her car today. With the direction of this thing, gas prices are about to spike.

    Barry didn't last long as a Cat 1 hurricane, but the flooding is going to be around a while.

    With all the floodwater from the mid-South and Midwest, NOLA might be underwater for weeks.

    Yeah, that's the thing... the rain doesn't have to fall directly on NOLA. Wherever it falls in the Mississippi watershed, it's going to wind up in the Big Easy.

    We have a rip tide advisory on Clearwater Beach because of Barry
