    It's headed for NO isn't it.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    They said the same thing about Debby and were right.

    Tropical Depression On Verge Of Becoming Ernesto

    http://www.wftv.com/weather/9732778/detail.html

    At 11 a.m. EDT, the depression that formed Thursday had maximum sustained winds near 35 mph, below tropical storm strength of 39 mph, the National Hurricane Center reported. It could become Tropical Storm Ernesto later Friday.


    "It's starting to have some of the signs of a tropical storm," said Eric Blake, hurricane specialist. "We have it passing pretty close to Jamaica in a couple of days and slowly intensifying. It could be a hurricane in the northwest Caribbean Sea."


    The depression was centered about 340 miles south of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Forecasters said it was moving west at about 15 mph

    I actually hope one will head this way; not a bad one but enough to bring badly needed rain.

    Tropical Storm Ernesto now in Caribbean

    Tropical Storm Ernesto formed Friday over the Caribbean as it moved toward Jamaica and the Cayman Islands, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

    Ernesto, which posed no immediate threat to land, could develop next week into the first hurricane of the 2006 Atlantic season, the center said.

    The outer edges of the storm were expected to bring rain to Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti over the next 24 hours.

    Maybe the title of the thread could be updated to reflect the naming of this storm? Just a thought.
