Yeah, I know, you don’t need to hear anything about a big blizzard from a guy in Florida, but I hope that those of you who live up there in the snow zone are safe and warm.
I spent enough time in the snowbelt to know that blizzards are no joke; they should be taken as seriously as the tropical cyclonic events we get here in Florida, and in some places, the results can be just as devastating. So be careful out there.

This is not to lord over anyone the fact that it is going to be in the 80’s here in South Florida today. It’s just an appreciation of nice weather, and that’s my definition of it. Some people like it when it’s cold; warm weather makes them miserable, especially if it’s too humid. That’s fine; to each his/her own.
I’ve lived in all kinds of climates; from the north woods of Michigan to the high desert of New Mexico and places in between. For now — and likely for the future — I like the permanent summer of South Florida, and if you think I’m mocking you snowbirds with the sunny forecast, remember that next August when it’s a mild 78 in Minneapolis and I’m down here schvitzing like a racehorse in 90% humidity.

This is the ninth year we in South Florida have gone without a major hurricane. The last one of any note here in Miami was Wilma in October 2005. I am sure there are all sorts of meteorological reasons why we’ve not been hit while others have (e.g. Irma, Sandy), but whatever it is, I’m glad we can get rid of our stash of Dinty Moore and Nature Valley bars for a while.
A lot of people are traveling today for the holiday — I know the office will be mere shadow of its usual self today. Just in time for it comes a big winter storm along the East Coast.
Millions of Americans planning to take to the roads and skies for Thanksgiving face travel chaos because of a storm that’s forecast to batter the Northeast on Wednesday. Meteorologists said Tuesday that the nor’easter was likely to hit on a day when more than 46 million people across the nation were expected to journey 50 miles or more.
The nor’easter is expected to throw a variety of misery at travelers, from a slushy mixture and rain and snow and 30-mph winds in Boston, New York City and Washington, D.C., to as much as 16 inches of snow in western Massachusetts. “Travel is not going to be a lot of fun for people trying to get to Grandma’s house on Wednesday,” said Kevin Roth, lead meteorologist at The Weather Channel. Major airports would be lucky to escape without significant delays, Roth said.
