Ready for Isaac or whatever its name

OK, the Republicans and the media are due to invade Tampa over the weekend for the big quadrennial convention. 

Down in the Caribbean a tropical wave has grown to a Category 1 hurricane called Isaac. And he's a likely Republican because the computer models say he's tracking toward Tampa.

If he does party with the elephants, look for him to try recuperating from all that political jibber jabber along the Nature Coast. 

So I gotta ask: Are you ready? 

We got a warning from Tropical Storm Debby and we have all been grateful for the monsoon season it started. We were not as grateful for the flooding and sinkholes.

Did you get the message and prepare for storm season?

The rain thus far has not alleviated our groundwater situation. We have been several years short, due to drought, of paying back the aquifer for our withdrawals. Isaac and Tropical Depression 10 could help. 

How's that emergency plan working?

The storms could also bring flooding that traps us in our homes. 

Are you prepared? 

You can stay tuned to this page. Important weather information will be in the red Breaking News bar across the page. We will also be on Facebook and Twitter (News4Levy).

We have links to the information you need and we will post information on the storm's progress.

I gotta go. I think the Carnivore used the gas for the generator in the lawn mower this weekend.
