This is one crazy tropical system!

Tropical Weather Outlook
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Mon Jul 8 2019

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. A trough of low pressure located over central Georgia is forecast to
move southward toward the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, where a broad
area of low pressure is expected to form in a couple of days.  Some
gradual development is possible thereafter and a tropical depression
is likely to form by the end of the week while the low meanders near
the northern Gulf Coast.  Regardless of development, this system has
the potential to produce heavy rainfall along portions of the
northern and eastern U.S. Gulf Coast later this week.  For more
information about the rainfall threat, please see products issued by
your local weather forecast office and the NOAA Weather Prediction
Center.  Interests along the northern Gulf Coast and the Florida
peninsula should monitor the progress of this system.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.

Interesting

One of the major players in the cigar industry has said based on the current plans by the Premium Cigar Association (PCA) for its CigarCon event that he is pulling out. David Garofalo today confirmed on the July 6th edition of his The Cigar Authority podcast that PCA 2020 will go on without him.

Garofalo cited he feels the direction by the PCA with bringing consumers into CigarCon will affect his ability to do business.

“I know what they (PCA) said they are doing to do. That’s enough information to say I’m out,” said Garofalo.

It’s a monster move that affects many things. Garofalo owns Two Guys Smoke Shop, one of the largest retail chains in the country. In addition, Garofalo also owns United Cigar which distributes many brands including Atabey, Byron, Bandolero, Garofalo, La Gianna Havana, and Fleur de la Reine. In addition, The Cigar Authority, which has one of the largest listenerships in the country will not be covering the show.

“They shouldn’t be worrying about me as the booth owner, but worry about me as the buyer,” commented Garofalo. According to Garofalo, he budgets around $1,000,000.00 a year to spend at the trade show as well as work with the manufacturers on promotions and events. Now it’s $1,000,000.00 less in revenue being generated by manufacturers at the show.

While some critics may say Garofalo’s decision is not a good business move, Garofalo feels this is the wrong direction the PCA is heading in. “I’m going to pay financially. It’s going to end up hurting, but somebody’s got to make a stand,” commented Garofalo.

Garofalo realizes some consumers might be put off by his decision, but according to him, the Trade Show is an important part of his business. “I’d rather be with you (consumers) 360 days a year, but give me some time where I need to get business done.”

The PCA and CigarCon event is scheduled to open July 10, 2020, in Las Vegas.

At the 2019 IPCPR Trade Show, Espinosa Cigars showcased the 601 La Bomba Warhead V. As the name indicates, it is the fifth installment of the Espinosa’s Warhead series.

The Warhead is an offshoot of the 601 La Bomba line – Espinosa’s line of powerful Nicaraguan puros. For the Warhead, Espinosa Cigars introduced a Connecticut Broadleaf maduro based off the original La Bomba blend in a box-pressed format. Each installment of the Warhead has been a different limited production vitola where the Broadleaf blend is optimized to the vitola size. These have been typically one and done releases.

Morning Daves, Dean, and ChillerCheckerRick.  Guess the Mayor is busy on a pasta and gelato tour.
