This guy just arrived from Florida! According to JL his mode of transportation was a sinkhole in The Villages. He might be right! Florida is under attack by storms that are hitting the entire state over the past week. The future is looking a bit bleak too. According to those in the know the first tropical event of 2018 is increasingly likely within the next week. If it develops into a hurricane it will be named Alberto. Projections for this storm are to move north toward the northern Gulf Coast Sunday into Memorial Day.
So Jerry, take comfort in the fact that you may seek shelter at our home in Minneapolis if things get really bad. Caveat . . our garage is small and very hot with extremely high humidity! But . . . no sinkholes!!
