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!
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!
