They say it will likely hit the US as a Cat 3 once it passes over Cuba and hits open water again.

How weird is that path......and how slow.
What DC members are worrying about the possiblity of this, and the news stories for possible areas?
What are your plans and how can we stay in touch.

We also have a new one developing in the Atlantic - Hanna.
Now tell me why I won't be glad when summer is over.

I'm concerned for the people in the path of both of them. Hanna is the one that could affect where we live, especially if it turns a little more northward. Fay brought enough rain into our area (we're not there, but our poor doggie is), and I hope Hanna doesn't bring Cubbie more bad weather. If we were home, he would be in the house with us.

Barbara - it used to be not so very long ago hurricanes were ALWAYS OFF the coast. Hugo paved the way, so to speak!

I don't want bad weather - too many 150+ foot Oak trees and one little house that already wants to fall over...a chimney that needs repointing...or maybe not after these...if those storms get close I may stay somewhere else.

LOL - I thought this was going to be a "Where's Waldo" type game ....

Actually - Hurricane Season is 6-months long in the US (June 1 thru November 30).

I hope everyone stays safe - and nothing bad develops this season.

I don't blame you. I do worry about Cubbie. He already has to think we abandoned him, and to have to put up with bad weather on top of it all, I want to cry just thinking about it. I keep up with the weather at home every day while I am gone, but there is nothing I can do so far away.

If you have a Short-Wave radio and can pick up 14.325 MHz - you might want to monitor WX4NHC, the Amateur Radio station at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Lots of real time reports from people all around the area.

I wasn't being insensitive in my previous post - I just haven't watched the weather the past couple of days ... didn't know about Gustav until I read this thread and fired up my raido ....

I can barely watch. When Katrina more or less missed New Orleans I breathed a sigh of relief. Then the levees broke and it's been a nightmare ever since. I've been back to New Orleans three times since Katrina and the last trip it was just about back...

Yesterday evening, Gustav was headed towards New Orleans. Like I said, I can barely watch.

I'm with you on this one, Quicksilver. I have a vacation home in Florida on the gulf side. There are currently some german guests in the house who sat through Fay. I feel badly that their vacation was such a wet one.

I just hold my breath throughout the entire hurricane season hoping that there won't be any major damage done.
