Here Comes Cindy

And I am not talking about Cindy Brady. New Orleans and the surrounding areas are looking out to the Gulf at Tropical Storm Cindy. The rain is already here and from the window of my cube I can see it already getting much windier and the rain is sheeting all over the place. The worst of the rain is supposed to go east of the city but lots of folks may see 4-6 inches of rain over the next 24 hours. I heard on the local weather report this morning that 8 inches of rain is possible depending on how fast the storm moves through. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the next storm in the Gulf avoids us at the end of the week.

I am so tired of this crap... this is part of why we are going to go retire in the hills somewhere. Hurricane's suck.

It's only early July and we are already facing our second storm. I hope this isn't a harbinger of things to come later in the season.

We evacuated to Lafayette and spent 10 hours in the car. Ugh! It made me never want to leave again but I can't think that way. Need to consider the doggies since they can't go to shelters.

You have Hurricanes...I have Tornados...I say, "be gone to both!"

It's all up to Mother Nature. I hope she's kind to both of us in the next few weeks.

I'll see your hurricane and I'll raise you a flood!

But, seriously, I hope it avoids you...

It's that time of year where everyone in low-lying places just hopes for the best. Thanks for the kind wishes and I hope you dry out soon.

NHC forecaster Ed Pasch said today that this is the first hurricane season on record that we've had four named storms this early (only 36 days in). Your hunch that it's indicative of the whole season is right--we expect above-average activity for the whole Atlantic basin. It's too early to say where Danny will end up, though early projections continue his eastward movement into the Carribbean.

When's your family trip? Is any of this going to mess up the plans?

July 28-31. I certainly hope it doesn't, and the current forecast is taking the center of the storm away from Biloxi and toward Pensacola. So perhaps Dennis' worst weather will remain to the east of the MS coast.
