Tropical Storm Fay is still off the coast and not moving much, but the wind is picking up at Jacksonville Beach. It’s still not strong enough to deter all beach goers, though.
There are reports of rogue alligators terrorizing Melbourne, where the streets are flooded by all the rain.
Here on the First Coast, the most terrifying thing is the politicians frantically telling us not to panic as they interrupt television at least once an hour.
The weather quacks say she will be hitting us at 35mpg and heavy rain about noon today and take her time wandering off into the gulf. And I have no doubt that some of my neighbors at the bottom of the hill will be screaming about snakes and alligators before nightfall if we get that heavy rain..how hard is it to tan an alligator hide? I need a couple of holsters for my pistols..
The wind hasn’t let up for 24 hours here to the south of you. It’s not much fun, as it seems ever band of awful rain comes right into the marsh.
