      The local news have done a good job in letting the public know where all the blocked off streets are, so if they have to go to Tampa General Hospital they can avoid the mess.

      I think the storm will skirt up the gulf off shore so there will be lots of wind and rain from the feeder bands to dampen things the first part of the week.
