...and if Isaac, which the experts say will soon be a hurricane, comes our way, then it's the hurricane, loss of power, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.   After the last hurricane struck in our area, I vowed that the next scare would send me flying somewhere out of reach.  But the uncertainly is seductive in its own way, as I'm drawn to think, "Well, maybe I'll leave for nothing if the storm lands somewhere else."  So.  Here I am in sunny Thibodaux today.  We have a two-story house and a boat, so we will not be in danger of drowning.

Just look at the spread in the computer models in the illustration above.  The possible landfall for Isaac lies anywhere from the Louisiana/Mississippi border to the Louisiana/Texas border and all places in between.  Obviously, the places in between are all in Louisiana, including my place.   Sooo...we prepare, and we wait.
