A spoiler by the name of Tropical Storm Danny has organized itself out of its former tropical wave and now may have plans for our weekend. Unless it takes a left turn, it should only be a rain event in Suburbia Majora. GFS and Ensemble meteorological modeling applications are placing Danny with a potential landfall between Sandy Hook, NY and central/eastern Long Island, NY. I know that Long Island has taken it on the chin in the past but I'm not sure about the "Five Boroughs". This will be one to watch as we slide towards Friday and beyond.

I'm certain that Grammarians far and near are shuddering as they read the title of this post. Truth be told, it's not mine. No, it comes from the sixth season of "The Simpsons", in the "Lemon of Troy" episode. Seems in that episode that the residents of Springfield seemed to have a doppelganger in Shelbyville. In this we heard the analogue of Homer, when realizing that the lemon tree was being rescued, says to his son, "Come on son, there's do'ins afoot". Great episode, but as so often the case... I digress.
