I was listening to a nationally based radio show this morning where they were talking about the effects of the storm on the convention, and the reporter in Tampa was talking about the “downpour outside”.
Meanwhile, I was sitting in a parking lot at the bus depot *in downtown Tampa only a couple blocks from the place where most of the convention is taking place* and it was barely sprinkling. Maybe closer to “misting”.
There’s still time for it to have an impact. It hasn’t gone by yet, and even if it does go by instead of turning, it could very well gain strength, becoming an actual hurricane (even if it’s just a 1 or a 2) and cause someone some problems. But it’s always amazing when the rest of the country starts paying attention to what we call “Late Summer/Early Fall” and how we react to it!
Today is the last day to decide who will be in the final, and who wins the Idol Bronze! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/601673.html
Like a gender/ableist issue exploding in on online convention/fan community, LJ Idol is the gift the keeps on giving!
