On the Watch for Hurricane Isaac

Monday, August 27, 2012

Today's been a good food day, except where sodium is concerned. Haven't done my 10+ min exercise yet, and it's so late, it won't be cardio!

The biggest thing on folks' minds down here right now is Hurricane Isaac. emoticon It was just upgraded from a Tropical Storm to a Hurricane a few hours ago, and it's moving s-l-o-w-l-y across the very warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, with plenty of time to strengthen before it makes landfall on the central northern Gulf coast. Very, very, very, very near where I am. emoticon

While it really doesn't look like it'll be on the same scale as Hurricane Katrina 7 years ago (her anniversary date is in 2 days, about the same time Isaac's eye is expected to hit land), Hurr Isaac is nothing to sneeze at. emoticon The storm surge itself will do plenty of damage to coastal areas, and neighborhoods along waterways that are directly or indirectly connected to the Gulf or the Mississippi River and its tributaries will have to be especially cautious. Winds will be high enough to do some damage, and there's always the threat of tornadoes being spawned by a storm like this. emoticon

My first prayer is for Isaac to fizzle, but if that's not God's will, please pray with me to the Lord of all creation for His protection over anyone in Isaac's path, and for minimizing of property damages across the affected region.

No idea if I'll have internet emoticon the next few days. Could blow over, could be really bad. Sitting tight.

    I wish you the best. We're in Foley, AL...within the northwest quadrant. It will be worse for you. Stay safe and be careful. We were here for Katrina and it was a long, dark windy day. Good luck to you...and God Bless!
