    On the bright side, we do get to watch these things for a week or so before they actually show up. Ike's down to a Category 2 right now. Sustained winds of 110 mph. That'll still bunch-up your bloomers, and it's expected to strengthen again.

    If this projected path is accurate then all those folks that just left here from New Orleans (running from Gustav) are gonna be back for another visit next week.

    So much for tourism. We can make a few bucks off refugees.

    Exclamation

    This afternoon it was a Category 4.
    Yep, it should strengthen back up again.

    Oh...lots of beer in the cooler...?? - and that makes you think you're ready for any EMERGENCY?

    I hate to break the news to you but, you are NOT prepared for a real catastrophe!

    You need yet ANOTHER cooler filled with beer.

    Buy more beer NOW before it's too late!

    Question Ice Cream?

    Hope ya'll ride it out OK! I've never seen a hurricane up close - just the after affects 300 miles inland.

    That does prompt a stupid question tho...my sister in Greensboro told me there is always a rush at the stores for bread, milk, beer, and....<drum roll>......Ice Cream! What is that all about?

    Is my southern sister just pulling my leg, or is that just some weird NC deal?

    Yep

    As I said in a thread last week, moving up here to Shelby County Tennessee from the Mobile Alabama Gulf Coast area is really, really paying off now.

    Our house was less than 5 miles from the Alabama/Mississippi state line and less that 4 miles from the actual coast. Ivan, Dennis, Katrina and Rita all handed us our own butts.
    To a lesser degree, several smaller storms over the years from 1994 to 2005 when we moved did the same thing. Danny stalled in Mobile Bay and rained like crazy for a full 24 hours. The amount of water that got under our house warped some of our floors and just all around flooded everything.

    I do not miss hurricanes one little bit. I am learning to like snow again...slowly...but it sure is better than boarding up and riding out a big hurricane.

    And, we love it here in Tennessee. I hate to see these storms again threatening the Gulf Coast but, my wife and I watch the coverage and it is a surreal feeling to see that the Gulf Coast is going through it and we really don't have to worry. It's a nice feeling.

    I hope Ike goes someplace else but right now it doesn't look too good.

    More coolers are on stand-by. Making another beer run tomorrow (Sunday). Got the propane, battery operated TV, radios, guns & ammo, cans of pretty much everything. Good to go.

    The only thing that scares me about a hurricane are the tornadoes. Hurricanes tend to spin 'em off like bees off a hive.
