    A cold front might be nicer, actually.

    Well, here we go.

    First named storm of the season.

    OMG! Ocala is toast!

    Batten down the hatches for this category-zero behemoth!

    Dude, if Ocala were toast that would improve Ocala immensely. :D

    Bring the rain, leave the wind.

    I don't know that we need the rain desperately, you lived in here February right? It rained hourly for the month. It has been pretty much dry since then, but most of the cities are still at normal precipitation or a little above/below.

    Tremedously well-played.

    Where I live, it's a lot below. We're close to 600 on the drought index, and that's true for most of central Florida. I think we had a quarter-inch of rain in May.

    I can't remember the last sunny day we had in New York. Yesterday I went to a game where it was raining and the temp topped out at 50. In June.

    Wait, wouldn't a cold front look more like that bra Madonna wore in that one video, I think it was Express Yourself? Maybe I'm weird, but a cold-front chest looks like it'd do more harm than good.

    If you see someone with an occluded front? RUN.

    Hey ... wait a minute ... I thought this wasn't going to be that bad. ???

    Tracking The Eye (storm-tracking software) downloaded this a few minutes ago ... The Ochlockonee River is just west of Tallahassee.

    Any SportsJournalists.commers on the west side of the state are warned to batten down the hatches.

    Occluded front? Just don't hit that dry line .....

    Hurricane warning already? Shouldn't be surprised. Rita went from a middling tropical storm to a Cat-5 literally from sundown to sunup.
