More Closings as Ida Grows Weaker

Santa Rosa County schools and courts will be closed Tuesday, in light of Tropical Storm Ida, which is growing weaker even as you read this. S.R. county government offices will be closed until Thursday.

The center of the storm is a little more than a hundred miles off shore as of 4 pm CST. It's expected to speed up, weaken even more, and make landfall some time after midnight. Total rainfall accumulations, when it's all over, are expected to be "3 to 6 inches" with isolated exceptions as high as 8 inches.

Lord help us if the Florida Panhandle ever gets a half inch of snow.
