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.
