Woo Hoo – I Finally Made The Big Time

Tropical Storm Richard to aim toward Yucatan and Gulf of Mexico

After emerging in the Caribbean on Thursday morning, Tropical Storm Richard was forecast to intensify into a hurricane by Saturday and aim toward the Gulf of Mexico early next week.

At 11 a.m., Richard, the 17th named storm of the season, was about 220 miles south-southeast of Grand Cayman, plodding southeast at 6 mph with sustained winds of 40 mph.

Under the long-range forecast, the system would hit Mexico’s Yucatan as a Category 1 hurricane early on Monday and downgrade to tropical storm.

“Plodding along…” well, what do you expect? I’m 68 years old. I don’t run much any more.

  1. Well, congratulations. Of course, now the whole world is watching you. Better behave yourself. πŸ˜‰

    Behaving myself would mean diminishing to a mere tropical wave and I’ll have none of that. I want my moment of death and destruction.

  2. Hi Richard:

    The storm grew to an astronomical size. The title of your post is as big as the storm. I thought for a brief moment your site had been hijacked.

    Take it easy when you hit land. πŸ™‚



    Go BIG or don’t go at all.
