    And if the hurricane misses, the far right with take it as a sign of divine providence.
    When a cyclist in your area is injured or killed by a motorist, make an extra effort the next day to go for a ride. It doesn't have to be an organized ride, or even a long ride. Hell, ride a 15 minute loop around your neighborhood if you want.

    Just be seen riding your bike.

    Do it to make people aware we're out there. Do it to honor a fellow traveler. Do it because you're lucky enough to still be able to.

    Their 2004 convention was affected by a hurricane too. Maybe Gawd is trying to tell them something. Or maybe she's trying to get them to do what they least like to do: help poor people.

    If you rule out areas for the convention based on where hurricanes might hit, you don't have much of the country left.

    They're talking maybe a 3-5 feet storm surge for Tampa at most... I've never been there, so I have no idea if that's bad or not-so-bad.

    There's also a definite potential for power outages (see below).

    Latest storm paths seem to indicate that the brunt of it will miss Tampa to the west, but not by much.

    If that gets hit by a hurricane, then Montana starts to look good.

    It's a replay of 2008/McCain-Palin/Gustav. Obama is a Kenyan witchdoctor.

    McCain suspends most convention activities on Monday.

    I'm guessing you don't live on the east coast. Do you know how large hurricanes get? HUGE.

    150 miles is nothing. You don't think Charlotte gets hit by hurricanes? Hugo.

    If the entire coast gets evacuated where do you think people go? Charlotte and surrounding areas (assuming Charlotte is ok).

    Hurricanes rarely do any damage to Charlotte.

    They've done some serious damage to the Triangle area though. I was there during Fran.

    And hurricanes typically don't do too much damage to Tampa as well. It's the presence of the hurricane that is the problem. Power outages, flights, etc.
