Hanna Tracking

I’m not liking this so much. That line of prediction for Tropical Storm/Hurricane Hanna is getting ever close to being right over our house. Let’s see if that can move offshore a little. This will be quite an exciting end to the week, at least in the Chinese curse sense of the word.

Update: It’s still on track to hit us square on but it looks like it won’t be a hurricane when it does, so I’m not really worried anymore. However I am dropping bricks about what Ike might be doing after it.

    I am hoping that Hanna changes her path. Lived through Hugo in Charleston and don’t wish that on anyone. Stay safe!

    Pawleys Island Sc. We have not seen Jim Cantore as of yet so I guess Pawleys Island is safe so far.

    I’m hoping Hanna does that Southern Belle thing and just sorts faints dead away without troubling you. Perhaps Ike will invade somewhere else…

    Hey dude, I just realized “Jesus, Hanna’s heading straight for Dave!” I’ll be sending right-leaning vibes in your direction for the next few hours.

    I haven’t been keeping up with your blog lately so I’m sorry I missed that you were coming to Dragon*Con last weekend. I would have braved the masses to stop by and say hi.

    Take care!

    Thanks all for the kind words. As it was, it hit us almost directly and yet wasn’t even the strongest storm of the summer. A regular thunderboomer in June knocked down limbs that punched a hole in the shed and ripped out utility lines from the house. I didn’t even wake up for this one.

    Chris, I’d have figured out a way to fit you in to the chaos. I did probably the best job ever of fitting the con and life into an acceptable weekend. Rob and Mary Gibson came down for lunch on Saturday and we hung out for a while, I drove over to Grant Park for a BBQ on Sunday, and after my panel on Sunday I hung out with Mickey Desai and his girlfriend at the Marriott Bar. It’s always tricky balancing new and old friends, con and non-con friends but this time felt very satisfying on every front.

    PS – I too am always happy to not see Jim Cantore. If he shows up in your town just before a weather event, that’s a good sign to pack up the car and get the hell out.
