We've just started getting the first of our rain from Ernesto. The predicted path of the eye is still far to the east of us. The thunder is pretty bad. My little dog, Baby is cowering under the furniture. As of 8 pm, they still haven't cancelled classes. Hurricane (or in this case Tropical Storm) Days are our Snow Days. They have cancelled classes and school in counties to the south and east of Hillsborough, but still not in Hillsborough. It will all depend on whether or not the storm deflects further to the west than predicted as it comes on land in the Keys and across the Everglades. If it does, we'll no longer have a Tropical Storm Watch, but rather a Tropical Storm Warning, and school will likely be cancelled. If there's a chance that buses could be pushed over by the wind, they have to cancel school...
