Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
Yes, Janie, we are getting ready for a visit from Isaac. Current "most likely storm path" prediction has the eye of the thing going over my house. But that path has been moving around a bit over the last few days, so it's way too early to know anything for certain. It's probably going to hit within 100 miles of here regardless, so we'll see some nastiness in any event. I'm hoping it goes to the east so we'll be on the less intense western side*.
We're not planning on evacuating for this one unless it's predicted to be Category 3 or above, and that's not looking to be the case. Ivan and Dennis cleared out most of the trees within striking distance of the house back in 2004 & 2005, and I figure that if the ones that are still standing didn't get knocked down then, Isaac's probably not going to do it. So I'm not much worried about getting crushed by a falling tree. But I do have plenty of gas and oil for the chainsaws just in case.
