Ouch

From CNN:
Hurricane Ivan, a Category 3 storm reported at 485 miles east-southeast of Barbados could hit Florida in another four days.
I'd guess maybe Jeb is starting to believe in global warming now. I wonder if, after all of these hurricanes, the land area of Florida will have permanently shrunk. Will old lakes stay longer, a few new ponds remain as the ground stays saturated, and some of the beaches have shrunk? Florida, with its average elevation of something like four feet above sea level, is high on the list of places likely to disappear under the ocean as the earth heats up. Maybe this is how it starts.

One thing we can be sure of--with the people in charge of that state and the country, any lessons likely to be learned will be the wrong ones.
