Irony is the enemy of the post-modern left(tm)

Still quiet

Just some drizzle on and off. It’s pretty nasty out on the coast though (especially down near West Palm and Vero Beach), and they’ve been showing plenty of “reporters getting blown around like leaves” footage to prove it.

    Nice and quiet between bands again. It was heavy for a while a bit earlier, but that settled down nicely, at least ’til the next one comes. OTOH, the newest forecasts say the thing may not be gone until Monday morning. What a wreck of a holiday weekend. Somebody put an outboard motor on that thing and get it movin’!

    UPDATE: The latest track gets it out into the Gulf by mid-afternoon tomorrow which is a marked improvement. Still, this sucks. Power just went out, then on, then out longer, now it’s back on. Whee.

  • On the scene

    Folks outside Florida can see our local (Orlando) coverage on WESH Channel 2, WKMG Channel 6, or WFTV Channel 9. I believe all 3 are providing free streams of their coverage so you can see exactly what I’m seeing on the teevee.

  • Back for now

    Power’s on again. Thank you Progress Energy!

    A major squall just went through (the juice came back right as it was pounding the hardest, so those linemen deserve a raise) but it’s quieting down again.

    Power just went out. We’ll see if it comes back. Shutting down…

  • Waiting is the hardest part

    Depending which teevee station you listen to the thing has either slowed down to 3 MPH or stopped entirely. In the latter case I expect it to suddenly veer towards Miami given Steve H’s incredible sarcasm about it.

    A roundup of some folks blogging the storm is at Kathy’s place.

    First feeder band came through – some nice winds and briefly heavy rain, but now the sun’s out again. Apparently it won’t even make landfall until after midnight now.

    Joe Gandelman has a nice summary of the Russian hostage crisis, along with a link to an essential editorial by Ralph Peters in today’s New York Post.

    UPDATE: Joe double-posted, so if he deletes the one I linked above, try this instead.

    The EUnuchs are united in their outrage that Russia is harassing that nice Religion of Peace™. But Putin isn’t gonna just let them either.

    Paul at WizBang has a great blow-by-blow (and I mean that in multiple ways, of course) of Kerry’s “rebuttal” speech. Many are speculating that he was drunk given how slurred his speech was. I guess he *is* just like Ted Kennedy…

  • Here’s your bounce

    Conventional wisdom said that Kerry got no convention bounce because voters were polarized and there were no undecideds. Conventional wisdom just got nuked.

  • Go figure

    Several of the hostage-takers in Russia turned out to be Arabs, not Chechens.

    Unsurprisingly, the Guardian says it’s Putin’s fault for not being nicer to the Chechens.
