Cue the Ominous "Jaws" Music

At least, if the latest models on Hurricane Ike are correct. CLICK HERE. You'll see it is now moving closer to Florida. Indeed, Florida is now projected to get a hammering from the Western side of the hurricane.

The real problem is the trend -- this model used to show Ike curving nicely northward and leaving Florida alone (mostly). The question now becomes, what happens the next time they update the models? Will the trend shift westward again? If so, we could take a direct hit (I live in South Florida). And Ike is a Category 4 hurricane.

There's really nothing to add. Crap.
