BP Oil Spill: High Chance For Tropical Cyclone Development Near Gulf Of Mexico
Written by 

A tropical disturbance that  could cause problems in the BP oilg spilled-Gulf of Mexico is showing signs of increased organization.

According to Weather.com  "Satellite images now reveal an increased concentration of thunderstorms near a broad area of low pressure just east of Honduras and Nicaragua.  Shearing upper-level winds are expected to diminish as the low drifts toward the west-northwest toward the Yucatan Peninsula the next few days.  Therefore, development of this into the season's first Atlantic tropical depression is possible.

A Hurricane Hunter flight has been scheduled for Friday afternoon, if necessary, to investigate the low.

This is the current weather advisory as of 1:36 pm from the National  Weather Center:

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
