    Rain, 15C and fall is here. Not nice since we never got summer. A few days over 70F and that was that

    Hey Foolish,
    how's the weather down there? Still have power? Should be wet and windy, wonder if it's going to get worse for NOLA I'm thinking it might shoot up to a cat4 or higher if it goes any further west. Hang in there.

    So far, so good! Still a couple/few hours from peak, but I'm encouraged.

    I don't thing there's a consensus on what happens after it passes us, but conditions are favorable for Isaac to intensify. Looks like it will make landfall on the mainland somewhere between P-Cola and NOLA. Best case, it goes to sleep, but that seems unlikely. Seems like it will be a Cat. 1 or 2.

    I'd think your worst problem would be losing power, they have already lost power in parts of dade and palm beach county, I assume it's the low hanging fruit. I just use a little 2500 watt generator that supplies my 5000 btu ac, fridge and tv, lasts forever on a six gallon boat tank, those guys with the big generators can't keep up with the gas, I just set up one room and everythings good.

    I just saw that turkey point nukes tripped off, had a fire in the switchyard, I worked there for years, did lots of switching, several million lost power, parts of the keys were without power for 30 minutes, you guys have those diesel generators down there in the switchyards, real expensive to run.

    I suppose I should turn up the volume on the TV. I'm just using the TV for radar. I didn't hear about Turkey Point on NPR update. So far, just a lot of rain and gusts of wind. Lost some banana trees, but no branches from the big trees.

    Not much yet here in Fort Myers, but a lot of the County is without power anyway.
