My much-adored Mollygood posted a great piece this morning on what's going on in Jena. I firmly agree with what the editor, Cord Jefferson, posted.
In other news, a tropical storm warning has been issued for the northern gulf coast, from Apalachicola (over in the Big Bend, near my brother) to New Orleans.
"According to the NHC's advisory, "maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph ... with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next 24 hours, and the depression could become a subtropical or tropical storm" later Friday.
The depression is moving toward the northwest near 8 mph. A turn to the west-northwest is expected during the next 24 hours. Coastal storm surge flooding of 1 to 2 feet above normal tide levels can be expected in areas of onshore flow."
