El Hurricane Ernesto

We were in the path yesterday, which is a pretty good predictor that we won't be in the path when push comes to shove. We went to Costco to pick up some photo prints and get some gasoline -- just an ordinary weekend stop -- when we realized that Central Florida was in HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS MODE; i.e., there were people at the gas pumps filling up multiple 10-gallon gasoline jugs to power their generators if/when the power goes down.

And buying bottled water inside.

Hell, we got caught up enough to buy some bottled water. "Just in case."

Dave Barry -- all together now: "I am not making this up" -- has more on hurricane preparedness here.
