Worry Wart

Being the worry wart that I am, I’ve got to find something associated with my upcoming race to vex about.

How about the weather? Talking to one of my weather friends last week, I learned that the longest-range model, the Global Forecast System model run by the U.S. government’s National Center for Environmental Prediction, shows a big storm headed our way, rolling up off of the coast of Central America and heading north, until it gets caught up in the westerlies.

So now every morning I fire up the model page to see when the storm’s forecast to get here. It looks like it has the potential to be an impressive storm, but this morning the model run I look at shows it just reaching our southern border by race day. Yay.
