Ophelia has moved away from Florida and taken all of our storm clouds, leaving behind a picture-perfect Saturday in Jacksonville. I played softball this morning, pulling muscles in my back I didn't even know I had.
The storm's latest projected track appears to foretell a Tuesday landfall in North Carolina as a category 2 hurricane, according to Jeff Masters:
As usual, all this is subject to a high degree of uncertainty. South Carolina is still at high risk, and Georgia still at some risk. Remember that a hurricane is not a point, and the effects of this hurricane will be felt over a wide area.
Today marks the halfway point of the hurricane season, which is expected to bring another three major hurricanes of category 3 strength or higher.
I'm thinking about starting a new ecommerce site selling "The End is Nigh" signs.

If you want to place your residence in a natural-disaster hierarchy, come join us here in tornado alley! I must say, given the option of hurricanes, earthquakes or tornadoes, I'll pick tornadoes any day of the week. We are welcoming Katrina victims to our state and I will welcome them to stay no matter who they vote for.
If the end IS nigh, then even more reason to spread the love...
To commemorate 9/11, I've decided to visit every single blog on my blogroll today. I appreciate the entertainment and enjoyment you provide, and I wish you peace and happiness.
