Well, guys, here’s a report from the front…..

Isaac is moving over the southern tip of Louisiana right now. I’m about 50 miles north in the New Orleans suburbs, and winds are steady at about 45mph now, getting stronger all the time.

The lights have blinked twice, so I may not be around for a while. Once power goes out, it’s going to be at least a couple of days before we get it back.

Whitecaps in the pool…... :-)

I live about 5 minutes from Charlie – so I might also be out a couple of days. This storm is so strange to me, as a Police Officer it was always mandatory that I report to work for the Hurricanes – first time in 32 years that I won’t have to worry about going to work – just look after MY family. See you all when i see you all.

Keep your head down Charlie – the pumps are actually manned THIS TIME!

Be careful and stay safe Charlie, as well as all in the area. No bodysurfing.
