    Thank you for the update. I’m glad that the wintering Whoppers are still enjoying Fall up North.

    Am I right to be worrying about the Louisiana Whoopers?

      At this point, it appears Michael will come ashore further east than Louisiana.

    As far as you know there are no wintering Whoopers at St. Marks yet, right?

      Correct. It’s far too early yet.
