We have a shortage of hurricane in the Charlotte area, but that hasn’t stopped people from clearing the shelves of drinking water in three stores I checked tonight. Also, there is a very high density of Florida plates on cars on the northbound interstate through Charlotte today.

As in one in three cars when it might normally be one in 40. I say this having traveled from Columbia, SC, to north of Charlotte during the day today and couldn’t help but track them.

Here comes Irma. Here comes some in law family from Florida to fill my normally quiet house with people and dogs for an indefinite period.
