Looks to me like Nicaguara will take a hit ... let's hope it dies out then

Those coastal countries and States can't catch a break--can they?

I'm preparing for a nerve wracking rest of the week and weekend.  Just as I was hoping the season would die down....nope!  Time for Gulf Coast LA, MS, and FL to gear up!  I hope they get our pumps working!   Never a dull moment.   Prayers for all that may be in the path.

Well now, this is a bummer!  Hoping it is NOT as bad as predicted. Maybe Nate will just fizzle out!
