I know we needed the rain but geeesh..  Hurricane number 3,4, or 5..I've lost count now is about to dump a bunch more water on us and then there is IKE.  I have lived in the path of hurricanes all 42 years of my life and with the exception of Andrew, I have never been scared of a hurricane.  I have a bad feeling about this one.

It's nuts.  TS Hannah's track is right over my city.  After 2003's Hurricane Isabel, I'm a little gunshy.  These storms scare me, and we don't get them as bad as you guys do.

Ike looks like it could be a real problem. Three times today the track was adjusted. Now it's headed towards the southeast Florida coast.  

Waiting it out...  :-[

" I have a bad feeling about this one"

That doesnt sound good! I still have to get plywood and I'm not looking forward to it. I'm praying this thing makes a right turn. Good luck everyone.

I'm setting in one of the target areas at the N.C. outer banks. I'll be pulling out in the morning headed back to central Va.

I ain't waiting for Hannah.

No problem.

We have FEMA.

Our Federal Government is here to help us.

We can do a contraflow on I-64 to Richmond. Of course, after Richmond everyone is on their own, so good luck.

Just get your ice; hook up your propane tanks to your grills; get lots of batteries for radios and TVs; and do what I am going to do, organize my tackle, again.  ;D

Hannahs coming. It's been raining most of the afternoon here in southeastern VA. We're getting the extreme outer bands of the storm now. Very little wind. It's eerie because right now the stars are out. But it is more humid than I've ever felt. It's like stepping into a sauna.

Isabel was a nightmare for us in Virginia. I know it was a minor storm compared to Hugo, Andrew, Katrina, etc. But even a Category 1 storm like Isabel will put the fear of God in you. During that storm, I saw 9 big trees fall with my own eyes (and that's just what I saw). I saw all of them fall while I was standing on my front porch. I saw a hundreds-year old white oak topple and split the house two houses down from mine. I remember sitting in my house with my family during the storm and we could hear trees snapping outside. The worst part was that night, after the storm had passed. The power was out (for 2 weeks, BTW). It was scary-still outside. But you could here damaged trees in the distance giving way. You could hear sirens off in the distance, too. Very sobering.

Here's what my front yard looked like the morning after Isabel. You couldn't see through those trees behind my house before the storm.  I got off extremely lucky.
