Not with a bang but a whimper

Well, Tropical Storm Hanna turned out to be sort of a washout, at least here on the Crystal Coast. She went inland of us, and while we had a few minor tornadoes (and no serious damage that I've heard of) spawned by a storm band on Friday morning, the storm itself was a bit of a disappointment. It was windy but not too bad, the power went out but only for a little while, and all it really did was disrupt my sleep.
Still and all, I'm glad it was fairly minor. I know there has been some localized flooding inland, and that's less than great, but we needed the rain.
Still watching Ike, but tonight's models suggest it will not make a devastating turn to the northeast. Perhaps we'll be spared. Prayers for Cuba and the Gulf, though--looks bad there.


  1. glad for the update... been thinking about ya!

  2. We're here! And very glad the damage was minimal! Our CT Yankees left in a power outage (thank you, Hanna!)

    Catch up with you soon!
