Storm Watch

I’m keeping an eye on Hurricane Isabel. I know she’s still far out in the Atlantic, but so was Hugo at one time. If she sticks to the current projected path, it looks like I have until Tuesday evening to decide whether to go or stay. As Charlestonians learned from Floyd in 1999, when I-26 turned into the world’s largest parking lot, the key to getting the hell out of here is to leave before anyone else decides to. (See bdg’s comment to my July Hugo post.) It also helps to have a Governor who isn’t an idiot.

    Change your plane tickets now for next weekend’s game in Lexington and
    enjoy the few extra days in the heartland of America. My wife and I were
    thinking about you this morning when they showed the projected path. I hope
    you will take the girls with you.

    I know YOU know about NOAA…right? I have a picture of “your sweet lady” on my site… with other sites with great views. I understand your concern all to well! In 1998(seems like yesterday) a friend was right below “Mitch” down off the coast of Honduous. I was THE only person around with a PC capable of local chat with people down there. The family here was desparate. I am send you that post.

    Subject: Rescue from Guanja: Follow-up News
    Gert:
    This is a follow-up report from the U.S. State Department, to a family
    member of a survivor of the Hurricane Mitch at the Posada Del Sol Resort,
    regarding rescue efforts from Guanaja, as reported by me in an earlier
    report. It seems that perhaps all guests at Posada Del Sol and maybe
    others have been transported to the Island of Roatan which is west of
    Guanaja. They are at a place called LaSaba. Further rescue efforts are
    continuing in all areas presently. Hopefully flights out of Roatan will
    take place tomorrow, if all goes well. Supplies such as food and medical
    relief are eminent if they have not arrived already.

    It was a very a nail-biting experience, to say the least. Fun to visit down there, but sooo glad I live in Indiana! 🙂 Mitch was a catagory 5 ‘cane. IF YOUR GUT SAYS GO…GO!
