It's 17 c in here, which is about 60F, and it has been raining non-stop since last night! I'm a bit tired of it now, I actually closed the blinds because I didn't want to see it anymore.

Thanks, folks, for the kind thoughts. No bravado here, strictly a chicken! It's not even raining this morning, just a little breezy. After all that preparation I did yesterday, it had better do something. Guess that should be said sweetly, in case I have to eat those words later today.

We have an all day rain!!! Dark, gloomy, and pouring! Love it! We've had a bad drought for so long here along the mighty Mississip.

It is much colder than it has been all August, here in Munich, Germany. Winter clothes are already appearing in the shops.

It was chilly enough I had to put a throw on the bed for my nap.

So far, so good with Tropical Storm/soon-to-be Hurricane Isaac. We didn't get near the rain last night that was expected. I woke up curious to see how much standing water there was, but couldn't see out of any windows because of the storm shutters. From the back door I could see there wasn't even a flood in the back yard as I had thought there would be.

Must wish good luck to the coastal-dwelling folks from the Florida panhandle to Louisianna, where the storm is said to be headed. Hang onto your hats up there!

The storm is apparently passing below us, and gradually coming apart at least for now. It could always regroup in the middle of the Gulf, but I don't think so this time.

I've lived near the coast of the Gulf of Mexico for much of my life, and don't get too scared by hurricanes. New Orleans is more at risk, but I'm not worried at least this time.

They have experience with evacuation here, and if it was decided we should evacuate, all I'd have to do is make a phone call to register and I'd be taken care of.
