I think it is unlikely Ernesto could affect the Keys as anything stronger than a Category 2 hurricane with 105 mph winds. A hit as a tropical storm or Category 1 hurricane is more likely. If Ernesto spends another day or two traversing the warm waters along the west cost of Florida, then it could grow to a major Category 3 or 4 hurricane.
His worst-case scenario would be a carbon copy of Hurricane Charley, which was still a dangerous storm when it left the state over Daytona Beach.
Why does God have it in for America's Wang?
The Chinese philosopher Wang Chung (really) denied "that Heaven has any purpose for us, whether benevolent or hostile".
God doesn't have it in for the peninsula-- Florida just hangs there, you know, waiting for the next Big Swell.
Surfers like hurricanes, at a distance, because they generate big waves.
So...big wang+big swell=big bang.
I just hope should a disaster occur as a result of Ernesto that the Government will respond quickly to help the victims.
Isn't this all just a commie plot to get newscasters to call it Hurricane Che?
Back in college Rogers' hair was so cool they called him America's Wang Chung. In retrospect we should have called him Barney's penis. He loves him some purple, I declare.
I want Ernesto to hit the fat lady in Virginia.
YPU'LL NEED TO PUT SOME REALLY GOOD PICTURES ON THIS PAGE OF THE HURRICANE!!!!!
