Just checking in on those of you living in the path of the latest storm. I know most of you are probably used to these storms, but the rest of us need to know you're ok! If necessary we'll send Pledge and his handy grill to your rescue!
How is our Florida DC Family?

I certainly want to include all our family along the gulf coast in our thoughts and prayers. And I'm volunteering Pledge and his grill to come to you too!
Hi Lisa, I'm so glad you posted this. I am concerned about Pattishan61 as she lives in a state where it could get very frightening, and bring back bad memories for her, as well as causing damage to everything. We have lots of southern members and Florida members and I'm concerned for all of them.
Sure hope they answer your question...
Thanks Lisa and Mac, so far, we just have wind and rain. This storm is very loosely organized, they thought it would strengthen when it stalled last night, but it didn't. It is raining and will rain for several days, but it is not as bad as they predicted it could get. On my Facebook page, some people have put up silly photos saying Hurricane Isaac, 8-28-12 and showing a piece of plastic lawn chairs turned over or one branch of a tree lying on the ground. That is our humor working for us. Will keep ya posted. We still have lights and cable, hooooooooraaaaay!
:-0) We moved after Charlie and Jean hit us in 2005. It took me over a years time (chainsaw) two to three hours per day, seven days a week. We had several acres of woods that took a direct hit. My son is close to where patti lives, hes got himself ready, and the rest of my family scattered through out the panhandle are as well. And yup, ready to go down and aid with any clean up if necessary. And you betch the grill will follow, pledge
Report from LA on hurricane Isaac, lower Alabama, bands of rain, some wind and flooding, curiously, some sun between bands of rain. The most solid part of the storms is still offshore, and although it is a huge huge storm, it is loosely organized. Tornado warnings are up here. The weather guy keeps saying that although it is poorly organized, the main part of the storm has a really really low pressure and I feel it from head to toe. Taking Aleve and lorazepam to counter it.
We got lucky with this one as it moved further to the west, I live above Tampa and all we got was a lil shower and that was it thank God. I lived through Andrew as it went right over my house and we got pretty tore up from that, I lived 25 miles south of Miami in Cutler Ridge for 45 yrs and just moved up this way 6 yrs ago, but Im happy my kids that still live down there didnt get hit to bad with this one but I sure feel for the people in Louisana always sad when these storms hit any of us. Thank You so much for asking its really nice to hear how people from all over care about one another... shine
