Ivan the Terrible, Update #4A

4pm. The numbers are out, and so are the warnings. But... because the storm is turning out to be a true monster (110 mile radius for hurricane force winds, 260 miles for tropical storm winds) they've posted the warnings from Grand Isle, LA to Apalachicola, FL. This would cover New Orleans, Biloxi, Mobile, Pensacola, Panama City... and that just about covered everywhere I could have gone to. So now all I can do is hunker down and wait for it to pass.

Forecast calls right now for the storm to go in around Mobile. That puts the eye some 75 miles away from me. This is right on the fringe of the hurricane winds. Since where I live is rated for a Cat 3 (120 mph winds) I should be fine. There's no major trees near the structure, and winds are going to be parallel for the most part, so we shouldn't have too much trouble. Power and net connectivity MIGHT become a problem, but that'll be expected. I will have my cell phone to stay in touch with folks, and if you want me to call, please email me. I'm not going to give out my phone number publicly. *smile*

I have supplies, I have batteries, I have music and books... and I have a cat that wants to be scritched. So... the cat will be a good barometer for trouble, too.

More later...
