See that little dot with the label of "2 PM Sunday" on it? Mrs. Gonzo and I live just to the south of that one. (Not IN the Gulf of Mexico, obviously. . .that would just be crazy.)
The rains are expected to come starting sometime tomorrow night or early Sunday morning. I'm hoping that this thing takes a little more of a northerly track (with all apologies to anyone that lives slightly north of us. . .I acknowledge that my hope is a purely selfish one).
If things are significantly less worse than are currently being forecast, I should be here tomorrow for the Vikings' clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers. There will be a game thread in any event. In the immortal words of latter-day American philosopher Ace Ventura, if I'm not here on Saturday. . .just wait longer.
More on the Steelers game tomorrow, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your Friday!
