Which means it is the beginning of hurricane season, and time for one of my favorite St. Pete traditions. Hurricanes downtown with some of my favorite folks of Da ‘Burg. We always intend to be a group of 6 or so and end up with far more people - friends who pass us sitting outside and get roped into our shenanigans.

What I Learned In Joplin
thedeadline: I’m going to write this in a stream of consciousness, the same way I experienced Joplin. It was my first time covering — more accurately, trying to cover — a disaster. The National desk knows I am a weather geek, so I came close to covering the tornadoes in North Carolina in April, and then the tornadoes in Alabama earlier this month. But the timing wasn’t right.
