I don't normally make light of natural disasters. However, the news reports on Hurricane John right now have lines that simplay CANNOT be passed up.
I challenge, nay, I DARE YOU to write a Sheppard/Zelenka fic with at least one of the following news lines in it somewhere. Please. Gods, please...

John was not expected to affect the United States,
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said John’s hurricane-force winds were likely to begin raking beaches south of Puerto Vallarta late Wednesday
Emergency workers were on alert for mudslides and flash floods as John trekked along the coast
It said John had drifted slightly closer to the coast and could gain even more punch over the next 24 hours.
John could slam directly into the plush beach and golf resort of Los Cabos on the tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula later this week.
"While the center of John is forecast to remain just offshore, hurricane force winds are still expected to reach the coast within the warning area
John was moving slowly northwest parallel to the coast on Wednesday afternoon, about 70 miles southwest of Lazaro Cardenas.
