    Zut alors. My drainage ditch is already doing a mean riff on a Venetian canal thanks to Fay.

    I heard them talking on CNN last night that one of the towns in Florida — Tallahassee, maybe? — took on 20 inches of rain from Fay.

    Maybe this one'll take a hard right turn out to sea.

    We had 24 inches of rain in 48 hours, and some cities near Melbourne had more than 30 inches of rain. There's so much water in the ground that it's bubbling to the surface. The river here is going to crest in two days, and it's expected to spill over its banks and flood several homes.

    Gustav has shifted west and likely will miss Florida and possibly the whole of the United States.

    Fort Myers is within the 5-day cone I just saw (albeit, the outermost edge). It's way too early to think we're free and clear. A couple of jogs to the east is all it would take and then...

    Sounds like he wants Gustav to get cocky.

    If he's pulling for a big hurricane to hit Florida, then he's got problems. I know he's not, but don't make him sound like he is when he's obviously not.
