Welcome to the "cone," y'all.
Meteorologists agree that tropical storm Isaac may or may not pose a serious threat to Florida. And state officials are urging residents to prepare for a hurricane, but again, it's totally up to the individual.
After all, nobody knows what's going to happen.
But it's the very meteorological uncertainty that makes hurricanes--or the threat of one--so much damn fun.
Who cares if it hits? There're a bunch of gnarly music-related things to do in Miami this weekend under $10. And it's going to take a lot more than a category one hurricane to keep us away.
