YIKES, tropical storm ALERT, U.S., east

Local news is saying Tropical Storm Bertha has formed
in the Atlantic.
No worries before next Tuesday, when they'll know more. So why do they have to tell me so early, and make me a wreck so soon?
But, they said, in recorded history, it has never been this far east in the Atlantic (or west, depending how you look at it), this early.
I'll just keep reminding myself of someone's (?) quote:
Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles
It empties today of its strength.

I don't think that we need to worry QS, looks like it is going north of us if it does make landfall.

I think they make a deal out of the littlest things because news is slow. This morning our news even covered the tropical depression. They did say, however, it won't turn into much because of the water temps. Basically, no worries.

Living in a hurricane prone area (VA coast), we hear a lot about hurricane season. I've learned to not sweat it until it hits a category 2 or greater. Then I'll start tracking it and make sure my stuff is together. We lived through Isabel a couple of years ago and that was a cat.2.

If it continues to follow the track it is on, it is headed for Bermuda, but will not come near the U.S., except maybe as a storm in the northeast states.
