Well, here it is. Ida has formed, and is threatening Nicaragua. I repeat, Nicaragua has a Tropical storm alert. You might want to plan where you evacuate; and fast if you haven't even started yet. Make sure you have 3 days or more of inperishable food and water. Also, if you are in the storm, and a person just happens to go through the window (from the other half, this only happens if the eye is over it and it moves away suddenly and gets caught in the wind), and has no pulse, it is possible to save that person with a defibrillator. Keep away from windows, because a window that is not covered by wood is asking for pricey fixes, and instant death. After Ida hits Nicaragua, there is also Florida on the line, possibly getting a maximal tropical storm or minimal hurricane. I repeat, Florida has a Tropical storm advisory. You might...the hell with it you don't want to hear it all again.
In case you're wondering why it doesn't look like anything that's going to affect Florida, it's because it's going sooooooo slow! By the way, I thank Noaa imagery for making it's picture available on google Earth possible.
