    Tropical Storm Ernesto was the biggest non-event since my date with little Suzie back in the forth grade.
    Very little rain, 45 mph winds, gusts to 60.
    Went to a hurricane party yesterday at 4:00, left at 8:00.
    Had dinner, liver and onions topped with smoked bacon, across the street.
    Came home and watched TV.
    Sitting on the balcony this morning was kinda’ interesting…whitecaps in my coffee cup.
    Tossed a paper airplane and it darn near made it to the Intercostal.
    I should have evacuated to Reno just for something to do.

    10:30 AM update...Hey Ozzy, Ernesto is heading your way. Your govenor just declared a state of emergency.

    lol Actually sounds like a pretty enjoyable weather event from your vantage point. I wonder if your paper airplane will make it to VA.

    Last I heard, Ernesto would hit VA but mostly as rain. Which we badly need (its been very hot and dry, dry, dry!). However, since we had a MAJOR heavy rainfall nite before last and more rain called for today...I'm hoping we don't get an amount to cause the the type of severe flooding we had with ol' Gaston when it got stuck over Richmond.

    Of course, I am taking some time off (this Sat.-Wed.) and when I do that...it always rains. They should use me as a drought preventative. Works every time. I had planned to do yard work...

    I'm glad Ernesto fizzled and didn't hurt anything too much...especially Jan perched in his eyrie overlooking the ocean.

    Yeah! Great weather for cottonmouths. Try not to get bitten this time Oz.

    Ernesto was just barely a storm down here but maybe you will get some much needed rain up there PAK. We get more rain in our average thunderstorm. Weather news said it dumped more than 11 inches over the glades. I wonder how they figured that out...probably had a reporter out there, dressed in rain gear holding a mason jar.

    The water didn't even slosh out of my toilet bowl so I know Ernesto was just a wimp.

    Well, it looks like I'm going to get a direct hit. The winds right now is 70 mph. 4 mph short of being a hurricane. The eye is projected to make landfall 15 miles south of me. That puts me on the stronger north side of the storm. We have already got over 6 inches of rain and the storm is not even here yet. My yard has started to flood. SO it'll be a long night. If it hits at night I doubt I get many pics. I'll do what I can. I'll be online as long as I have power.

    The wind have been blowing pretty good for awhile. A few minutes ago, I heard the first "Howl". The rain is just ongoing. It just keeps coming down, and it keeps coming down faster and faster. The strongest part of the storm is just about to move in.

    I still think this is going to be a weak storm.

    Ozzy you are really a cowboy no lie

    I think you should change youre name to Cowboy or some thing... instead of ozzy, I mean yea Ozzys cool and all, but youre more of a cow boy! Do you have dusters, and some chaps? A Horse and some blue jeans? and Oh OH oh A cowboy hat, and a button up plad shirt!

    you would be a great cowboy!

    Go Ozzy!
