Fasten Your Seatbelts - It Could Be a Bumpy Week

We now have (as of National Hurricane Center Advisory 47) a hurricane watch up for the northern gulf coast, including good ol' Fort Walton Beach (and Destin, Pensacola, and so on and so forth). Still about two days out, so the current projected track with Ivan going right into Mobile Bay may change, intensity hard to predict, etc. Around the neighborhood you can (or could earlier) hear chainsaws (presumably folks getting some branches out of trees to lessen the wind load) and circular saws (presumably folks cutting plywood or OSB for window covers - I don't think anyone's worried about building bookcases right now!). There's a little breeze out, nothing much stronger than we get during a fall frontal passage, but there seems to be a hint of menace to it. Yeah yeah, anthropomorphosizing a hurricane is illogical, but still. We haven't had any significant tropical activity through here since Opal, so we'll see what develops. Oh, and I don't have to go into work in the morning, so I'll probably get to put a little update in in the AM.
