It's great sleeping weather. Nightime is 60F with a nice breeze. Reached a high of 90F in SE S.D. today.

It's overcast and breezy, temps in the 80'sF. I put up the storm shutters this morning in anticipation of Tropical Storm Isaac/Hurricane Isaac's arrival tomorrow. We're due for some rough weather the next couple of days. But the Weather Channel people are ecstatic -- finally something exciting to report! I have a load of wash in right now and have rechecked the emergency food and water box in case the power goes off.

Glad to hear that you are one of the sensible folks. Don't go out in the middle of the storm to see what is happening. We have folks here that go out in the middle of a Nor'Easter. They go down to the water front to see the waves break over the wall. Then when the waves bring the rocks with it, they get some nasty injuries. You wouldn't believe some of the stupid things they do. Stand on the wall and try to stnad up against the big waves. They usually lose.

Stay safe and let us know how you withstood the storm.

Large trash bags and duct tape...on the inside, it should keep most of the broken glass outside. Take care!
