LIGHTNING MAY NOT STRIKE THE SAME PLACE TWICE...
BUT APPARENTLY HURRICANES DO.

Tropical Storm / Depression Matthew is not going to become a hurricane, but it portends trouble down the road as the Gulf is becoming active and the waters remain warm.

Rainfall from this system surpassed 6 inches in many parts of Louisiana, and the Florida panhandle also got heavy rain and thunderstorms, which does not help much for those trying to clean up.

Here's a perspective... Escambia County Schools of the Pensacola area are scheduled to reopen on Monday, October 11 after almost a month of being closed due to Ivan. That means no Fall Break, little or no Christmas or Easter Break, and possibly extended school days. It's a good thing they don't have to deal with snowstorms, or they would never be able to finish the school year.
