Tropical Storm Ernesto made landfall south of Miami early this morning, bringing rain and a little wind to South Florida, but among these types of systems one has to consider Ernesto a wimp of sorts. In addition to the storm being torn apart by it's interaction with the mountainous terrain of Hispanola and eastern Cuba, some drier air was able to get into the system and inhibit it.

As I speculated yesterday, Polk County's school district cancelled classes today. When the decision was made early Tuesday afternoon, the belief was that Ernesto would be stronger and that it's path would take it straight up the middle of the state. Just goes to show you that things don't always turn out the way you might believe.
