It's hurricane watch time. Isadore is expected to become a major storm with landfall predictions anywhere from the Yucatan to Jacksonville LOL! NOAA actually said that today. We'll be glued to the weather channels for the next few days!

Floridian, I am watching this storm closely too, it looks like it could be a very dangerous one by the time it makes landfall.

You know Lisa, I was just wondering how many times in my life I've done this. We grew up in a small beach community. My mom always hung a tracking map with the first storm and used it all the way through the season. Some years they were a mess!

kim, they don't dissipate :-( when they are this close and powerful, it is for sure going to be in the Gulf and the water temps are in the high 80's this feeds the storm, making it more stronger. The weatherman said last night that the upper level winds will also be in favor of aiding the storm :-(. Watching carefully. I am about 20 minutes from the coast line

Lisa,
I live 6 blocks from the bay. It will probably be either me or you!

I'm wondering just how far inland it will come. I live in Ga and though we aren't on the coast I still worry about it. We did have one come thru a few years ago and it was awfully scarey!!! It was "Opal" and boy do I remember that one!! Far as I know that is the only one we have ever had here(that I remember) we were without power for 9 days and it was tough! Anyone heard if it will be coming in this far??
As for all of you that are in the path of this storm, My thoughts and prayers are with you. I pray that God will keep you safe and sound.

Unfortunately some part of the Gulf coast is going to be in trouble. The meteorologists are already calling this a monster storm. Excerpt TBO.com - "The storm seemed in no rush to go anywhere, but it is predicted to be a monster hurricane with winds of 120 mph by Sunday."
Traditionally the slower the forward speed, the stronger the storm CAN become.
Lisa, My mom went all out with the big wall maps. Gosh I wish I had those maps now. My folks made it exciting to track all those storms and always got us involved.
