“Forecasters are calling for a nor’easter to blow into New England, bringing blizzard conditions to the entire region. Travel advisories have been issued by the National Weather Service through Monday….”
Hank switched off the TV. “I’m so damn glad we don’t live there anymore. Florida means never having to deal with that kind of weather ever again.”
“Cathartic, huh?” Agnes said in a mocking tone. “You’re happy to be out of the cold, snowy weather in New England, but have you forgotten about hurricanes? We’re in the middle of hurricane season down here. So far we’ve been lucky, but with climate change, the storms are bigger and more damaging than they’ve been in the past.”
“So you’re being prophetic now, Agnes. This whole global warming thing is a hoax. Even the President says so. I’m sorry, Agnes, but you just can’t beat the weather here. Would you rather be back in Boston for this upcoming blizzard?”
Agnes grabbed the remote control from Hank, turned on the TV, and tuned to the Weather Channel. The chyron at the bottom of the screen read, “MONSTER HURRICANE BEARS DOWN ON FLORIDA COAST.”
