Hermine Landfall Ends the Hurricane Drought

It has been since Hurricane Wilma made landfall nearly eleven years ago (24 October 2005) that the U.S. mainland has experienced a direct hit of a fully tropical event. Hurricane Sandy had already transitioned to an extra-tropical storm just prior to making landfall over New Jersey, so she doesn't count despite causing nearly $72 billion in damages.

Just for the sake of timeliness I've recorded a screencast to discuss this developing storm and it's many potential impacts during the next five days as it crawls slowly up the East Coast of the United States.

For the folks in the Southeast, watch out for flooding and be careful while driving... Everyone else just keep looking up,

Paul Krugman must be getting excited!

Krugman, the master of inflating the money supply thinking that it'll solve the world's problems! (Don't read about the hole that NIRP has opened up in the BOJ's balance sheet - http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-09-01/¥9-trillion-hole-emerges-inside-bojs-balance-sheet-it’s-pretty-dangerous-situation) Won't he have egg on his face when the system he advised blows up? Yet, in a way, what "they" need to keep fiat afloat is a higher velocity of money running through the system and weather disasters do accomplish an aspect of that!

Everything loose is blowing sideways. Visibility is low from the volume of rain at this moment. Power is already out in areas of Tallahassee where their friends live.
12:05 am ET: The wind strength is starting to make a howling sound as it hits the dorm buildings.
