Tropical Storm Isaac is heading toward us
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
He'll probably be a hurricane about the time he gets here - only a category 1, so while we may lose power we probably won't lose trees, or roofs, or buildings.
Here's the historical track - I had to add an arrow so you have an idea of where we are. Think there's a chance Isaac will miss us?
We also are in "hurricane watch" status, meaning hurricane conditions are expected within 24-48 hours - again, the red arrow points at St. Thomas, we're just a dot in the ocean:
So if you don't hear from me for a few days, it's just that the power is out. We're in a nice cement building, not very high up, and we'll be just fine. (Tomorrow we'll pick up some food that doesn't need cooking - my go-to hurricane food is cold cereal, sans milk.)
It'll force us to get some work done on our packing, since we won't be able to go outside and play!
