Shelter from the storm

This hurricane is really making me nervous. Sometimes we're supposed to worry, the next we're not and now we have hurricane warnings again. This is the latest NOAA projected 5 day path. All that red area is under a hurricane warning.

It's 4:30am now and the path is pretty much the same. Hurricanes make me nervous -- that's why I'm still up. The university I work at and my son attends has still not decided what to do about classes on Monday, nor have the local schools made any decisions. There's been nothing said about evacuation either.

I know -- it's just been one after the other!

I'm slightly panicky over my family being in NE Mississippi - nevermind the panic I'm having over you being down there on the Gulf!

Dix: It looks like it's going to be worse in Mississippi than it is here. Alabama had a mandatory evacuation for folks on the coast but not for where I live.

Hello Katya,

I came here by way of the link space we share on Dr. Charles' terrific site.

I'm making the rounds of those places I haven't yet visited, and am glad I came to yours!

I was wondering about that hurricane, and hope your next post lets us know that all has passed and you're safe.

I'll be back to check out some of your other posts in the coming days.
