It is time to break out the Lena Horne LPs.
Stormy weather is on the way.
I thought our rainy season was over. But each time I say that, we get a sprinkle or two.
If the weather fellows are anywhere near correct, though, we will be getting a good deal of rain. And wind. And general havoc. Somewhere around Monday.
Tropical Storm Jova is on its way for a visit. Before it gets to the Mexican coast, it will build up enough steam to be promoted to a hurricane. Which class we will just wait and see.
The current trajectory will take it over the Mexican Pacific coast between Puerto Vallarta and Melaque. That sounds far more accurate than it is in reality. Hurricanes are like bulls. We may think they are headed one way. But they will go where they want to go.
So, we try to forget the hysterical buildup over Hurricane Irene, and remember that hurricanes do cause real damage. Even if it is the flooding following the storm. We who sit on bodies of water are a little sensitive about quick rises in the creek.
And if Jova does not come rumbling over the top of us, there is a second hitter -- Irving -- warming up in the batter’s box. It is a bit early to predict, but it appears to be heading our way, as well.
To paraphrase Eliot: this is the way the rainy season ends -- with a whimper and a bang.
