Re: storms

Hi, Marge. The trajectory currently provided by the National Hurricane Center shows it passing through Virginia west of you, but not far.

It looks now like it will make landfall south of me; the NHC now says Charlotte Harbor. That being the case, we will get very little surge, because we'll be on the front side. But it's sure gonna make a mess of Charlotte Harbor, which is maybe the lowest area along this part of the coast and which the Red Cross has called "a disaster waiting to happen."

Jim!  What a relief to see your post.  Delighted you're on that
"mountain" so at least you're safe from the surges.....do so hope you
survive the winds.  Check in when you can, OK?  Currently no rain
here; even a bit of weak sun, but it's coming.  If you're expecting
it tonight, guess it won't get here until later tomorrow...Andrea and
those between Jim and me, take care and check in, too, so's we know
you're OK?

It's almost 4 AM. We got the first band of rain, thunder, lightning

about 3 AM. We're in kind of a lull right now, but there's a lot

We are about 5 miles inland and at an elevation of 28 feet [almost
mountain by Florida standards] so we're not worried about storm
Guy on the tube just said that hurricane force winds are not
in Tampa before 9 PM today, so we'll probably get them about 8 PM.
Supposed to last about 12 hours.
