Ernesto: Plenty of Nothing

Ernesto is officially a bust. Nothing but a bit of a breeze and a few sprinkles. Almost all of the schools in nearby counties are closed today (Charlotte County, which was hammered by Hurricane Charlie in 2004, is the lone exception), and most government offices as well. The mail, however, will be delivered.

I've seen worse weather driving to work on a thundery night. And that suits me just fine. A disaster averted is a good thing.
