Well, another month, another storm. We had Tropical Storm Arlene in June, Hurricane Dennis in July, and now Hurricane Katrina squeezing in before the end of August. Fortunately for us, this amazing storm is headed well west of us, toward New Orleans. We’ll probably get tropical storm-force winds, but nothing like Ivan last year. Of course, this isn’t good news for those in New Orleans, which is actually below sea level.
It’s been breezy all day today, and currently we are having some rain and lightning. I’ve brought all the loose items inside the garage to be safe. I’ll post periodically over the next day to keep everyone apprised of our situation here on the Gulf coast. In the meantime, don’t forget the weather.com box at the bottom of the home page for up-to-the-minute weather information here in Pensacola.
