Sorry Lisa et al. Just when I was saying how quiet this hurricane season had been and then Isidore and now Lili. Batten down the hatches again and be prepared just in case. Or better still, come and stay with me, animals too!! :-) All we can do is pray.
Yes Louisa, she did leave the last time, but I think their parish made out well, she left as a precautionary. This time, if they take a direct hit, like we did with Isidore, the damage will be worse and we will be on the bad side of the Hurricane too. Not the kind of news you want to hear first thing on a monday..lol..BTW, thanks for the offer, I wish I could just pack up and leave, but I can't. Hugs, Lisa
Oh darn thing not again and I did not unpack most of things what it had Isidora so will have to start few packing again,I hope not hit here. So not have to worry do all over again packing so, I guess go back to my DD apartment plus hope it will be in my mail from DG before it time comes in LILI hurricane.
If the hurricane hit here for sure will bring my computer with me so ,I won't be able to use my computer to let you know what's up at my DD because of she don't have the phone. =( That is why not get touch with you all as sooner the last time Isidora hurricane.
I pray to God to hope nothing happen. It kinda worry me right now. I hate this!
Hurricane Season runs from June 1 thru November 30. August, September and October are noted as the busiest months of the season. In the summer and late fall, the air over the oceans warm up considerably, collect moisture and begin to move in a circular motion. This is called a tropical depression. If the wind speed gets above 39 mph, it becomes a tropical storm and is then named. When the winds reach 74 mph the storm becomes a hurricane.
Boy Lisa (and all the rest) what luck! Maybe it won't happen to you this time. We all know how things can change from day to day. We'll just all have to keep our fingers crossed!
Add my prayers for everyone's safety through this new threat. I am sure you are all still pumping water out of basements, too. By the time Isidore got up here, we got a good 2" of rain, but you don't need 2'.
lupine, thanks for the prayers. We don't have to worry about water in basements, we don't have them here! We are below sealevel so the water table is very high. I've never even been in a basement :-) . New Orleans had 2' of rain! And the waters haven't gone down yet in some places there and towns below me. I am thinking this storm is going to miss us and head off toward the TX-LA coastline. (Positive thinking, although I don't wish it on anyone)
