Its always something watching reaction to the approach of a coming storm here on Long Beach Island.  First you catch minor clips on the news.  Weather folks mentioning some tropical moisture being watched far off of the mainland of the US.  While it might be on a meteorologist's radar it doesn't come into the picture for everyday people.  The moisture starts to evolve, eventually becoming a named storm raging in southern warm waters.  A projected path is displayed with dire warnings for landfall.   In the span of a couple days this newly named storm has become the dominant focus for the media and people at large.   Conversation revolves around the speculation of where it will impact and more importantly how strong of an impact will the storm have.  Like talking about an upcoming NFL game you hear all manner of predictions from the worst case scenario to nothing at all will happen.   Will there be flooding?  How strong will the winds be?  The rush to the store to buy supplies begins in earnest.  Outside furniture is moved in while other things are tied down.  As the approaching storm closes in on arrival the rush will die down and final opinions will be weighed in as to what will happen.  Then there will be nothing left but to wait, braced to see how things unfold.  The storm will roll through and eventually the sun will shine down on the island again.   Hopefully Hermine leaves us with little or no significant impact to LBI.
