    This is the zigzagedest path ever. Straight north, then west, nw, then east, then sw... Absolute craziest track. At least she’s back down to Cat 1. Next high tide is in 4 hours at 11:57am, Mobile, AL time.

    Lots of rain in the Pensacola area. Voluntary evacuation orders issued. Barge hit a bridge so it's closed until after the storm when they can get an engineer in to inspect. I'm just sitting around knitting my granddaughter a blanket that matches the one that I made for her favorite baby doll. We shouldn't lose power since we have underground lines, but you never know. Hubby is mad because he wanted Mexican takeout last night but I'd already marinated a pork tenderloin so I told him he could have it tonight. He still thinks they'll be open and he'll go get it, but I'm thinking that frozen pizza will have to do. BTW, the Digourno with the croissant crust is totally worth it. ;)

    Even the rain bands can just keep swirling around, bringing pounding rain. I was in a tropical storm in Florida years ago, it rained 30 inches in 3 days! And in Florida, there is no where for that water to go...

    Just posted.

    Tropical Tidbits

    Sally has continued to strengthen as we pass midnight central time, and is now a Cat 2 hurricane with max winds of ~100 mph as it slowly approaches the coastlines of Alabama and northwest Florida. Extreme flooding is expected as torrential rain continues through the night. Stay safe.

    My goodness. Prayers for everybody affected by Sally.

    What is the deal with 2020 with all the problems?
    I did not even realize we were getting another hurricane already hitting the U.S. shores.

    I saw the news last night and saw some footage of the winds and by golly it looked almost as bad as some of the footage from the other one that recently hit near Louisana.

    Prayers for all affected.

    Windstorm insurance is expensive. And if you make any changes to doors, windows, garage doors - they have to be inspected and windstorm certified.
    Flood insurance was cheap in comparison- $425 each year.
    A lot of people think they will never flood until it happens.
