There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a behemoth of a hurricane fall the f–k apart after hitting the west coast of FL. Fucker went down to a Category 3 because of some weird front that kept the air cooler, so it couldn’t gain strength after Cuba. And then it went down to a 2 after it blasted Naples. I cried a little when I saw it was downgraded to a 2.
The news reported the eye was malformed and that meant the storm couldn’t gain strength at all… it would only lose it. Good. I’ve never felt more relieved.
As of 9:30pm Sunday night, eastern time, my parents and friends down there still have power AND internet. Some nasty-ass winds that lasted for at least 3 or 4 hours… and yeah, some damage, and some street flooding. But all in all, it seems ok so far. Storm surge has yet to take place, but they’re predicting basically low, to none. Thank God.
I need a vacation, man. I need a friggin’ vacation.
