Hunkering Down in the Panhandle
My folks are hunkering down and preparing for Ivan. This is going to get ugly. I keep logging onto all my favorite hurricane tracking sites, including the National Hurricane Center which probably feeds off of the Navy site I watch. That sucker keeps drifting west a little bit at a time. I just don’t want my folks to take a direct hit. It appears to be an inevitability at this point that they’re getting something, but I just as soon it not be direct.
And those people in Louisiana. Geezoweez. For y’all not from the South, let me tell you about La. Those folks have such a high water table they bury their dead above ground. Ivan hits there and I just can’t even imagine what’s going to happen.
So positive thoughts, prayers, vibes, hurricane-dissipation dances if you do them, anything... to get that bad boy down to a Cat 1 or make it just go away. Poof! It could happen! It could!
BTW, if you click on that Hurricane Center site you'll see there is a Tropical Depression heading this way. Lovely. Just lovely.
