Hermine is a hurricane, about to hit Florida!

(Pictured: A hurricane.)

So the big news of the day is that Hermine is now a hurricane, Cat. 1, and is poised to become the first hurricane to make landfall in Florida in over 11 years. I also read that this also ends a 1,080 day hurricane drought for the Gulf of Mexico
That is all hard to believe, but true. 

Also, I’m hearing and reading reports that this storm is very slow moving and could do quite a number on north Florida and elsewhere, simply in terms of the amount of rain it is going to dump there. Well, great. First Zika, and now this. It is tough times for Florida.
