 As I write the this Isaac is an 80mph hurricane, slow moving and dropping water and increasing winds all over the Central Gulf Coast but the weakly defined eye is almost exactly over the mouth of the Mississippi River and shows every indication of slowly climbing right up the Mississippi and passing over New Orleans on the anniversary of Katrina. Wind gusts could exceed 100 mph.  Here in Montgomery , Alabama over 300 miles to the north east the skies are partly cloudy and and the winds calm. The cloud cover has changed, and we did get a little rain shower. We are seeing the outer most bands of this Texas sized storm. We anticipate having electricity and telephone lines throughout the storms passage, assuming the storm track stays pretty much as predicted. We are minus some important resources, but believe we will be able to keep the watch through the storm. Please keep checking in.
