Hurricane Lee's Path May Shift Closer to Boston and Nantucket As It Heads North


Charting the expected path of a hurricane is more difficult than herding cats
Despite the most sophisticated computer models until it hits, hard to know where landfall will be at
Hurricane Lee still packing a rain and storm surge punch as a CAT 3
Instead of passing the Eastern Seaboard miles off shore Boston and Nantucket the northern edge may see
Hundred plus miles per hour winds pushing a storm surge
Fearful residents wondering when mandatory evacuations the state will urge
A storm still this powerful so late in the year
Will be stoking the increasing climate change fears
Governor Healy of the Bay State would do well
If she called her Florida counterpart for suggestion based on how he prepared for Idalia's hell
Blues and Reds finding common ground in disasters would be a breath of needed fresh air
Government always works best when the best of competing ideas across the aisle are willing to share.
