Originally decreed as a Category 2, many in the Florida panhandle awake today to find that their trusted weather people were LYING TO THEM! (omg)

Yes, that was a joke–it’s hard to know what the weather is going to do–but, based on the original projections, many in the area didn’t evacuate, and now face one of the strongest hurricanes of the season. Will it be as bad as Harvey in Houston last year? Or Maria?

People wonder why the country is getting more divided, but the answer could never be clearer than it is today: a beautiful, sunny day in Philadelphia, PA…

Those damn weather people suck at their jobs.
