  1. What the heck is really going on? I think people are going to be so confused. First we had a storm that was heading north of us. A warning was to be ending. Now all of a sudden we not only have a TS but it’s just off to our east and heading to us?

    Ok weather folks…explain. Did they just get it wrong or did the Depression just decide to hop down south?

    • They mentioned in last night’s weather report that there was a possibility that a new center might form to the south and bring it closer to us. Looks like that’s what happened.

  2.

Whose accounts are with ECAB and nothing from the unpredictable Social Security as of today,August 21,2020.The payments in question are for July,2020.
