Source: CNN

Tropical Storm Ida has formed in the Caribbean Sea and confidence is growing that a potentially major hurricane could hit the United States by late this weekend or early next week.

"The center of the [storm] will pass near of over the Cayman Islands tonight, the Isle of Youth and Western Cuba Friday, and move over the southeastern and central Gulf of Mexico on Friday night and Saturday," the National Hurricane Center said.

At 5 p.m. ET, the storm was about 100 miles west of Negril, Jamaica. It had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.

2. I'm sick of this.

Sally tore us a new one last September.
We're still putting the house back together.
As son as we do, we're outa here.
We'll move near daughter's family just outside of Boston.
I can deal with blizzards better than hurricanes.
