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.
