Here We Go Yet Again -- Meet Ike

Ike is building up.

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.

I'm just about over this nonsense.

I'm still putting the dock back together from Faye, and Hanna rears her head, followed by Ike.

This is starting to draw a laboratory grade vacuum.

Well it sure is a busy hurricane season for sure. I think now that Gustav is over land Hanna will figure out what she wants to be. I notice Ike coming off the coast of Africa when I went to South American last week. I think I would be a little concern about this one especially if is she combines with Hanna.

The term freight train comes to mind.

Here's TD 10, which is charging along behind Ike...

I(Don't) Like Ike!

Well, my part of the world had a narrow miss with Gust-off last weekend. It managed to ruin Memorial Day good! Here in Bama we got off pretty much without a scratch even though folks a bit further west got hammered. At this point though, I really don't want to think about another storm. Too bad for me , (and everyone else on the Gulf Coast).

Oh joy.

Just got back from Gustav exile, and a week without electricity.

Do I unpack?

Only a week? Count yourself lucky, I hear there areas that might have power by the end of the month.
