These storms are intimidating.

Gustav is apparently going to be a 3. Bad! A hurricane is a spiral thing. Bands of wind and rain shoot out in circular bands. Sometimes hundreds of miles beyond the eye of the storm.

Although Gustav is now south of Cuba and will miss Key West, we are experiencing rain and wind from the bands. The ocean outside my house has been moving rapidly for 2 days. Sometimes as fast as it did for Fay.

And the water level is different. The tide has been unusually high and unusually low in the last 24 hours.

Plus it rained unusually heavy last night.

Note the repetitive use of the word unusual. I know no other way to describe it. Creepy!

It is still gray this morning and it is almost 9.

I am more concerned about Hannah. Hannah is the hurricane right behind Gustav.

Hannah has yet to reach any type land. However it is being discussed as being possibly worse than Gustav. Hannah’s path will take it to the Carolina’s. It is projected to take a sharp right turn at some point.

So Gustav is missing the keys to the south. Hannah is supposed to miss the keys to the north. It is like being the meat in a sandwich. Key West is located between the slices. I do not trust the situation. Hannah could squeeze in on us!

Politics.

I think McCain’s choice of Palin as veep is a bum move! Time will reveal the selection detrimental to his candidacy.

Have a good day!

  1. And just why is Palin "detrimental"? Because she's from a small town (so was Bill Clinton)? Because she's only a governor (so was Bill Clinton)? Because she's a woman (we know Bill Clinton "likes" them…lol)?

    Palin took on a corrupt Republican administration in Alaska (Murkowski…who strongly believed in nepotism and appointed his own daughter to replace him in the US Senate) and beat him in the primary, going on to win the governorship.

    Palin took on Dems & Reps in her state. She took on big oil by imposing the biggest tax on them and then giving that money back to the citizens of Alaska as a rebate of at least $1200.00 per taxpayer! She is beholding to no one! The baby she had in April(2008) has Down's Syndrome, but she opted to keep the baby and not "flush it down the drain", as I've heard some people already say!

    First thing the Dems do? Complain that she's from a small town & has no experience. Well, again, neither did Bill Clinton…and he was running for President…Palin's only running for VP! And she still has a lot more EXECUTIVE experience than Obama…he's NEVER been in ANY executive position! In fact, since he's been in the Senate (not quite 4 years!), he's been running for the presidency.

    I like the way Palin has taken no crap from anyone in Alaska…Reps or Dems or lobbyists or big oil, etc! If the Reps were smart, they would be running HER for President & McCain for VP! I would vote for her in a heartbeat…regardless of her party affiliation…just look at her accomplishments (even a runner-up in the Miss Alaska pageant!)!

    This ought to be some election now! The Reps can't say anything that'll make them look racist and the Dems can't say anything that'll make them look sexist…I just hope it doesn't border on the "ho-hum" because of all of the political correctness, which I don't believe in. I believe in civility & decorum & having respect (& judging each person as an individual, not a group), but not to the point where we have to be afraid to say or even think something for fear of offending someone. I was taught: sticks & stones may break my bones, but names will never harm me…and I've had both hurled at me! Now on to the RNC and then the actual campaign…FINALLY!!!
