Okay, raise your hands; who remembers Matthew & Irma? The back-to-back hurricanes that broke our decades long streak of missing out on Atlantic Hurricane season?
Yeah. Not fun.
Well, don't look now, but we might have our first storm of the year over the next few days. This one was an oddball; the low pressure system actually formed over Tennessee and has moved south towards the gulf, where it has a 40-60% chance of becoming a named storm by the weekend.
First, and most importantly, DON'T PANIC! More than likely, all we will see from this one is some rain; nothing violent, nothing massively destructive, and not evacuation-worthy. That being said, I'm just a deejay and not even an amateur-level meteorologist...but I *am* a former American Red Cross CPR/First Aid instructor, and I did get my Emergency Preparedness merit badge thirty-odd years ago in the Boy Scouts, so just trust me here...MAKE SURE YOUR FAMILY IS READY FOR THE NEXT ONE!

And don't wait until the last minute, okay? Do it now while there's no rush. You'll thank yourself later!
