Severe weather predicted for several states on Election Day.

Vote early if you can.

"This yearís midterm election features an intensity usually reserved for a presidential race. In parts of central and eastern United States, a major storm system may add a wrinkle to this high-stakes contest.
The storm is set to rapidly develop Monday into Tuesday as it travels from the Southern Plains to the Great Lakes region. Numerous states could be hit by heavy rain and even some tornadoes."

"However, storms that form should be fairly short-lived, which should limit the overall impact on Election Day voting outside the hardest-hit communities."

"Beyond the potential for severe storms on Election Day, pockets of heavy rain could deter voters from the Great Lakes through the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys and into the Northeast. In addition, winds will be very gusty over a large area from the south central United States through the Great Lakes as the storm cranks up."

1. I'll drive anybody who is afraid of the weather

and shelter them with my umbrella. I will give them tea, coffee or cocoa if they get cold. (I hope that is not considered a bribe).

2. I'm driving elderly Republican voters to the polls on Tuesday

It will be about a 2 1-2 hour drive in the rain, but I plan to drop them all off in the Okefenokee Swamp.

(just kidding, only driving Dems on Tuesday)
