On Sunday afternoon I noticed ABC was doing non-stop coverage of Irma. One of their reporters in Naples was literally out in the storm trying to show us how intense it was. Of course there were strong winds and rain but if that was a Cat 3 or even Cat 2 nobody in the right mind would be standing in a street taking the full brunt of the weather. That's when I flipped off.

Later in the evening I saw a reporter standing in "flooded" downtown Miami. He was at Brickell and 14th, know the area well. Sure there was some street flooding as expected 2 blocks off the bay but when they panned out the sidewalks were dry. It seemed an awful lot like the reporter was trying to hide that this was a nothing burger.

I feel bad for Houston as all this Irma hype took the focus off Harvey and the people in TX really did get ****ed...FL, not as much.
