The tropics seem to be winding down. Knock on wood. Other than Nadine wandering around. It's hard to believe she's still out there. It's been almost 3 weeks.

Until I can get up a fresh entry, this will have to do. I've a couple of ideas but I'll have to find the enery and time to do a little research and write something up.

White rabbitsx3 to you, bug! I just noticed that tropical weathertracker you posted near the top. I may have to steal it, starting with my next blog! :)

Good luck on the laundry; Isaac's rains are finally on our radar!

White rabbits, everyone!

Sandi, I was awake when Hubby got up to go to work this morning and told him 'white rabbits.' He looked at me and asked, "What?" LOL

I nodded off in my chair last night and slept for almost 2 hours. Which explains why I was still awake at 12:30 to see Hubby.

Good gosh, I see TWC forecast for this coming week has us getting more rain Monday through at least Thursday. I supposed this is going to include some late effects from the remnant of Isaac interacting with those ridges and troughs.

For today, anyway, it is going to be sunny and rather warm (91) and humid (82%). A good day for laundry.

Hubby and I don't have any particular plans for the Labor Day weekend. The usual laundry and household chores. It will be nice to have an extra day that I won't have to get up at 5:15 to get ready for work.

I tried to call my cousin after I got home yesterday. Had to leave a message on her machine. I was going to try again later, but I nodded off in my chair. I didn't wake up until 10:00. I'll have to see if I can catch her today.

Since she moved to the retirement community, her social calendar is booked. She's making new friends. They have so many different activities going on, social hours, bus trips to see this or do that. The woman is NEVER home! lol Good for her.

Dear Bug,

Wishing you White Rabbits, White Rabbits, White Rabbits
and a FUN and SAFE month of September!




Hope you have dry day to get your weekly laundry out to blow:)

Hope Lisa touches base about her daughter's OB appt that was scheduled this a.m. She's 34 weeks with twins. It would have been terrible if labor had started while Isaac was passing.
Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
Yep, Ylee.. Had to put something up while watching Isaac. Too many friends in the line of fire.

The flooding was only on Tuesday. By Wed morning, everything had pretty much drained off. But while it was here, it was a MESS!

Pros, you sound like you've been busy.

That's some interesting stuff you found for your family tree. I hope you can tie in the new info to what you already have.

I've got a great uncle buried in the American Somme Cemetary in Bony, France. He died Oct 18th (I think it was) in 1918. So close to the end. Another few weeks and it would have been over with.

I happened to find a public advisory this morning, while doing a quick print out of Kirk and Leslie's forecast tracks to post on my cubicle wall. (During The Season, I like to keep my coworkers informed. IF they're interested enough to come look. Most aren't. My Departmental Director checks!)

Anyhoo, the advisory lists rainfall amounts to date for different locations in each state that was affected. Some places got an ungodly amount of rain. To date, nine states are listed. As Isaac continues his journey, I'm sure more states will be added.

Tropical Depression Isaac Advisory Number 43

Charleston recorded 7.36 inches, which is about what I had at the house. I spilled some, as I was measuring it out but I guesstimate 7.5 inches from Tuesday morning through Thursday morning. Most of it was Tuesday: about 6.5 inches.
Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
It is always lots of fun to go out for lunch with the 'girls', I hope you had a good time.

I had no idea that Charleston was flooded. I have been feeling so sad for the destruction in Louisiana. Every time a sad face comes on to say that they lost everything, I want to cry. It so incredible that the area was hit once again by a nasty hurricane. We expect rain this weekend but we can use it. Of course we do not want any flooding.

I have been catching up with my reading, finally finished 'The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest'. I also have been doing a little painting, and some records reading for my genealogy. The Mormon Family Library put new records on line for the town of my ancestors and I have been reading them. Quite a bit of eye strain! Did find a few interesting things about the 1020, such as a relative dying in WWI. He was in Austria where he died and is buried, if I understood the record correctly. I knew that my grandpa was was a WWI hero but had no idea that a brother or close relative died in the same war. I need to figure out the exact relationship by fitting in the person in question with my genealogy.

My cleaners are here at the moment and Koko is moaning because she is sitting with me in this 'computer'/storage room. I would have put her on the deck for an hour but it is a bit hot today.

Wishing you a very good weekend.

Gee, bug, you've had a whole dang blog while I've been gone! I had no idea that you had all that rain, and Charleston was flooded! You must wiped out!

It's our turn now; we're due for about 4-5 inches this weekend. All the rivers and creeks are low, so unless we get a couple of inches all at once, we should be good!

Take care!
Member Since: February 3, 2011 Posts: 86 Comments: 14572
Hope the appt goes well, Lisa.

Just sneaking in. I'm going out to
lunch today with the girls. I'll
check back in tonight, after I get home.
Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
Totally with you on the lack of sleep. I have to get up early and take my daughter to the Dr tomorrow so I'm calling it a night. I suppose if any tornadoes come my way, my weather radio will wake me up. Night all.
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
Thanks, Lisa. That gives me a spot to look at on the radar, which I just did. I see that one band with storms is coming up your way now (10:00 Eastern). Hang tight. I also see some tornado watches flickering on and off, as the radar moves.

I was thinking you were further south and closer to the MS/LA state line. Why, I don't know.

Shore, I'm glad to know that you've spoken with Wendy and all is well with them, other than the usual mess to clean up.

I'm not surprised she sounded tired. Even when conditions aren't too bad, it's still stressful and exhausting. I'll be catching up on my sleep some more this weekend. Too many late nights online and watching the news this week.
Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
Bug ~ Just talked to Wendy. They went down and checked on things today - they've got electricity back at the camp but not at home (or vice-versa) but no particular damage. A lot of tree limbs and a couple of trees down. A lot of high water. The usual stuff.

She said her impression is that it wasn't that bad in Houma compared to other places. She's going to head back down to the bayou tomorrow and start trying to get things sorted out. So all's relatively well - but my goodness, did she sound tired.
Member Since: October 4, 2004 Posts: 205 Comments: 15288
I'm in Madison, Ms. It's around 6:30pm now and we still have some wind, but nothing like a few hours ago. It does look like those bands to the south have weakened alot, so maybe it will get better as the evening progresses. I think just some brief spin up tornadoes are possible (one in Hattiesburg a few minutes ago), but maybe it will weaken even more before it gets here. It does look like the worst is over.
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
Lisa, glad to see you check in.

WOW. Ya'll are back up to 50 mph winds?

You've been very lucky that you haven't lost power. I have my time set on GMT and I can never remember how to convert it, so I'm not sure how long ago you last posted. As I type this, anyway. I can see it once I post.

I've been watching TWC since I got home and the flooding and evacuations and the tornado watches all going on are hard to watch, yet I can't NOT watch.

You don't have your location up at your home spot, so I don't know what general area you're in. (Yes, I did go look; saw your picture!)

We had some more rain last night and today but I measured out barely 1 inch and maybe .6 of a second, so almot 1 3/4 since I got home yesterday.

It's looking like that spin off band from Isaac is a little less than it was. There's still a little bit flowing over and there's some storms on the radar down in GA. South of us. Don't know if it will head our way later or not.

Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
Now we are clocking 50mph winds. Still keeping fingers crossed that power stays on. Since my last post, evacuations are taking place about an hour south of me. The Tangipahoa (sp?) River has a break in the dam, threatening several communities with major flooding. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. We are currently catching a short break in the heavy rains but looks like there is more severe weather coming off the Gulf and those bands should make their way to my area this afternoon or evening. Everyone continue to stay safe.

Hi all. Checking back in today. We are good here. We have alot of trees and powerlines down and road closures as well. Still getting wind and rain. Under a tornado watch today, and actually had a warning earlier but no damage from that one that I'm aware of. Daughter is hanging in there, thank goodness. We have widespread power outages but thankfully mine has stayed on. I was finally able to get some rest part of last night, then more napping this morning to catch up. Hope all of you are doing well. Thanks Bug, for checking on us. Everyone stay safe. I will check back with you guys this evening.
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
Hi, ho, it's Thursday, everyone.

A rainy Thursday. We're still seeing rain from that spin off from Isaac. Not on the scale that the Gulf is getting but...

I see Lisa has not popped back in since last night. I hope she still has power and that everything is Ok with her and her family.

I see there's still no word from Doc.

Sandi, they laugh at me but there's a select few that do come to see me (or email me) when they have questions about the weather. Esp w/ The Season kicks in.

Isaac just will not get moving, will he? The floodiing in the Gulf states is awful. They've had a LOT of rain and probably will get a lot more before it's all said and done. This'll teach the ones that say tropical storms or weak Cat 1's don't cause much damage.

There's a huge area of tornado watch out that way, too.

Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
Hi Bug

Hope today is dry and even a tad sunny! We had really heavy rain last night and foremost of the morning, but now a very weak sun is showing through the clouds, making everything sparkle!

So far today I have had a good day, which is good. Long may it continue!

Have all the doubting Thomas's finally begun to realise you're a weather soothsayer!!
Member Since: October 29, 2005 Posts: 277 Comments: 25324
Hi Bug, back for a quick check in before calling it a night (hopefully). My daughter is hanging in there (thanks for asking). She has had to take some meds to stop false labor pains over the past 12 hours. Just hoping and praying she can hold off til after the storm. Winds are worsening here, with heavy rain bands coming on and off. Constant rain though, just some moments heavier than others. I'm going to try to head to bed now. I have a feeling I may indeed need the rest. Night all.
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
Think I'm going to call it an early night, too.

Will check in from work tomorrow during lunch.
Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
I'm glad to see you still have power. That's good.

That warm wind is probably due to the excessive amounts of moisture.

It is a good idea to turn in a bit early. I know how stressful and exhausting it can be. A good night's sleep will do you a world of good.

How's your daughter doing?

The rain we got a little while ago came down very heavy but it didn't last long, thank goodness. It's a bit misty out there.

I took a bit of a break from storm watching tonight. I'm watching a rerun of 'Something's Gotta Give' with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. I switch back to TWC or the computer during commercials for a minute. After a while, it's to the point where it seems like they're just repeating themselves and showing the same video clips over and over.

Now, it's a case of waiting for everyone to check in, so that we know they're OK.
Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
Still hanging in the top part of the storm. Winds and rain have really picked up here alot. I walked outside and was surprised by the fact that the wind is so hot and humid, even after dark. Don't remember ever experiencing warm winds like this before. Anyway, hope you all are doing well. I'm going to try and turn in a bit early tonight. Our local forecast says to expect this possibly through the better part of the weekend. Everyone stay safe.

From the 4:00 NHC Public Advisory:

ISAAC CONTINUES TO TRUDGE SLOWLY TO THE NORTHWEST ACROSS
SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA


Someone needs to take Chopin's Piano Sonata No.2 (Funeral March) off the record player and put on Percy Mayfield's Hit the Road Jack. Something, anything to speed up that trudge.


Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
Just checking in, and checking on you. Isaac is not very nice, not at all! Take care Bug.
Member Since: May 6, 2008 Posts: 165 Comments: 17900
The first bit of rain is just now starting. I figure I may as well get comfortable for the next couple of days.
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
Hi, Lisa. Hang in there. It's got to end sometime. I'm just sorry you had to wind up with one of those slow movers. If you have to have a storm, you really want one that is in, out and gone fast.

If it rained anywhere locally today, I didn't see it. It was nice to be able to just get in the truck and drive home.
Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
Just had the first flicker of power go out here during a wind gust. And we are only gusting to about 40mph as of now. I'm sure its all downhill from here. Power back on for the moment. Keeping fingers crossed.
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
Hi, Lisa,

I was wondering how you were. Along about this time, lots of folks have lost their power and internet access and we don't know if it's that or something worse. It's another reason why we worry about our friends here.

Will keep you, and your daughter, in my prayers. Twins? OMIGOSH...

I've heard that, too, but I have no idea if it's true or if it's just an old wive's tale. You're right, though; going into labor right now would not be good.

Gams, so far, no rain here. Yet. I am really hoping we don't have a repeat of yesterday. Here's what was in the paper this morning (and there's some photos):
After Rain Causes Gridlock, More Bad Weather Expected.

I can't believe Isaac is spent all night grinding along the LA coast. I see Houma is more or less wet on that webcam Shore found: Houma Isaac Cam.
Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
Thank you Bug. Just getting on today after staying awake all night watching. Looks like its almost to my area. Should get to us in a couple of hours. Off subject, but can everyone please say a prayer for my daughter? She is 34 weeks pregnant with twins. We don't need them coming in this mess. I've heard low pressure can make women go into labor. Everyone stay safe!
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
Sneaking in...

Gams, I think we may get more of the same today. Flash flood watch is back up again:

THROUGH THIS EVENING

* NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
TODAY...ESPECIALLY LATER THIS MORNING OR EARLY THIS AFTERNOON
THROUGH THIS EVENING. DUE TO VERY HEAVY RAIN THAT FELL TUESDAY
AND THE TROPICAL AIR MASS STILL IN PLACE...THERE IS A RISK OF
RAINFALL RATES EXCEEDING 2 INCHES PER HOUR
AND FLASH FLOODING IN
ANY SLOW-MOVING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. THE THREAT FOR FLASH
FLOODING WILL INCREASE IF HEAVY RAINFALL OCCURS AROUND THE TIME
OF THE EVENING HIGH TIDE...WHICH IS 717 PM ON CHARLESTON HARBOR.

* HEAVY RAIN COULD AGAIN FLOOD LOW-LYING ROADS...RENDERING SOME
AREAS IMPASSABLE...AND COULD ALSO FLOOD OTHER AREAS OF POOR
DRAINAGE ESPECIALLY WHERE STANDING WATER PERSISTS FROM HEAVY
RAIN THAT FELL TUESDAY.

Good morning Bug, glad to see your radar clear over you this morning after all that rain yesterday.
Hope the drive to work is OK.
Take care.

Hi, Lisa, Finn, Sandi.

Just doing a quick check before leaving for work. All TWC is showing is reporters in anoraks defying the elements. I needed to see an official update.

TS Joyce has expired, it looks like and we now have Kirk. Cap'n Kirk's track is curving towards Sandi, unfortunately. More rain on the way.

Lisa, Finn's right. It ain't over til it's over. Keep your weather eye out and your ears on the TV, radio, etc. Hopefully, you won't lose power.

No more rain since yesterday, really. Maybe .5 of an inch in my gauge.

I'll check in again during my lunch break.
Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
Glad you got home OK, and also hope it has gone down before you need to head back this morning!

Now I know why you have a truck!! Well done Archie 2!!
Member Since: October 29, 2005 Posts: 277 Comments: 25324
Thank you Finn. You definately validated my thoughts on all of this. Going to try and catch some sleep. Looks like tomorrow will be the start of a very long few days.
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
Hi Lisa,
You are right. 36 people died with Faye, which was "only" a tropical storm, so please keep your weather radio or TV on all the time. Isaac is huge and will spawn tornadoes far away from the center. Stay safe and hopefully this storm will give you only much needed rain and that's all :)
Here in Palm Beach County (FL) we had unprecedented flooding and of course tornadoes, when TS Isaac was 400 miles away in the Keys! (more on my blog)

Night Bug, glad your safe and well!
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
I have a question/concern. They have moved the cone west again and here in central Ms, seem to be downplaying Isaac to an extent. Wouldn't one think that the average person would let their guard down with all of this westerly talk and not realize that we will more than likely see some pretty tough stuff later into this? Please correct me if I'm wrong with this opinion.

Bug - found a live streaming webcam from Houma that's on my blog. Good quality, too!
Member Since: October 4, 2004 Posts: 205 Comments: 15288
Been browsing around, lurking on Dr. M's blog, checking the NHC, various webcams.

If I didn't know there was a Cat 1 hitting LA, I'd never be able to tell from the live reports on TWC. It just looks wet. No wind, in particular. All the lights in the city seem to be on. I've seen cars and people on webcams. The streets are a bit deserted but not totally empty.

It makes me a bit nervous, even though I'm not there. It just looks too good to be true and I feel like something bad is lurking around the corner. Which may well be; Isaac is moving so slow and has so much rain to dump. It ain't over yet.

We have not had any more heavy rain since earlier this afternoon. It was light rain, when I left the office. It's been misty out there.

Our radar looks much better. Green and some yellow, much more spread out. No reds or oranges. We still have a flash flood warning up:


AT 821 PM EDT...EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT OFFICIALS REPORTED THAT
WIDESPREAD FLASH FLOODING PERSISTS ACROSS MUCH OF CENTRAL
CHARLESTON AND PARTS OF SOUTH CENTRAL BERKELEY COUNTIES.
NUMEROUS ROADWAYS AS WELL AS SOME HOMES AND BUSINESSES REMAIN
FLOODED. THE WORST FLOODING IS OCCURRING IN THE DOWNTOWN
CHARLESTON...WEST ASHLEY AND MOUNT PLEASANT AREAS. ALTHOUGH THE
HEAVIEST RAINS HAVE ENDED FOR NOW...FLOOD WATERS WILL BE VERY
SLOW TO RECEDE. BETWEEN 4 AND 8 INCHES OF RAIN HAS FALLEN
ACROSS MUCH OF THE CHARLESTON METRO AREA SINCE EARLY AFTERNOON.
ANY ADDITIONAL MODERATE TO HEAVY RAIN WILL LEAD TO ADDITIONAL
FLOODING.

* FLASH FLOODING IS EXPECTED IN AND AROUND...
JAMES ISLAND...FOLLY BEACH...DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON...MOUNT
PLEASANT...WEST ASHLEY...NORTH CHARLESTON...DANIEL ISLAND...

Those are some pics, Caro, but you're right: it's nothing compared to what the folks in the Gulf are experiencing.
Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
If you scroll down this, you'll see the photo of the kayaks in the market.

Charleston flooding reports and photos

It sounds like it was rough there today - but definitely a minor inconvenience when you think about those preparing for Isaac.
Member Since: July 15, 2005 Posts: 156 Comments: 6776
No, I haven't. I did see two guys in kayaks at the intersection of President and Spring. When I finally made it to President and Spring! Wonder if it was the same two? Who knows? They probably could have paddled all the way from Market.
Member Since: October 7, 2005 Posts: 229 Comments: 24577
Bug, have you seen the photo of the kayaks going through the market downtown? It's been "floating" around the internet - even made it to Dr. M's blog.

Glad you made it home.
Member Since: July 15, 2005 Posts: 156 Comments: 6776
Oh, wow... thanks for all the posts everyone!

Oh, Caro. It is a MESS down here.

Sandi, I FINALLY got home, squeaky brakes and all.

Gams, yes I think it is from Isaac. The tail end of one of the outermost feeder band. You can see it on the water vapor images. I left at my usual time; just before 4:00.

Lisa, welcome to WU. Yes, the site is great and the people are, too. You'll find good info here and folks that will answer questions and offer advice. Hope you and yours weather Isaac safely. We'll be watching.

Hi, Patti. Good to know that you and OB are inland, where it's a bit safer. At least, there'll be no surge to worry about.


The Charleston NWS is posting spotter info re: rain amounts. They're varying from barely 3 inches to 4 or 5.

I just emptied my CoCoRah gauge and we got something between 6.25 and 6.50 inches here at the house. I have to guestimate, since I spilled some as I was measuring it out. It had filled the 1 inch interior gauge, had spilled over into the larger container. That appeared to be half full.

I delivered a co-worker across the bridge to her daughter's place of employement. Her daughter could not get into town, due to the flooding and my coworker was going to WALK from downtown, across the bridge and over to her daughter's office. I told her no way she was walking through all the flooded water OR across the bridge. So many streets downtown are flooded, forcing traffic into just a few usable streets. We finally made it.

Hubby had about given up on me. I'm glad I got out of town when I did. High tide is 6:30 tonight.

From the NWS's 4:24 update:

FLOODING...HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CONTINUE TO BE POSSIBLE THROUGH
TONIGHT DUE TO THUNDERSTORMS AND THE PRESENCE OF DEEP TROPICAL
MOISTURE. THIS COULD LEAD TO ADDITIONAL OCCURRENCES OF FLASH
FLOODING...ESPECIALLY IN AREAS AFFECTED BY EARLIER TORRENTIAL
RAINFALL. THIS INCLUDES...BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO...AREAS FROM
AROUND WEST ASHLEY AND JAMES ISLAND...TO NORTH CHARLESTON AND
DOWNTOWN CHARLESTON...AND MOUNT PLEASANT.

COASTAL HAZARDS...ELEVATED TIDES DUE IN PART TO THE UPCOMING FULL
MOON COULD PRODUCE SHALLOW SALT WATER FLOODING AROUND THE TIME OF
HIGH TIDE EARLY THIS EVENING.

Hey ... small update - otherbug is at my house and was just on the computer to let her family/friends know she made it safe/dry up here in northern Mississippi.
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
New to the site, haven't been around since Katrina. You guys have the absolute BEST info out there. Thank you. We are already getting fairly windy here just north of Jackson, Ms. I can only imagine what NOLA and others on the coast are going through. Thanks for the great info!!!

Quoting palmettobug53:
They finally sent out an official emergency alert here at work about the flooding issues. It's 3:00. All we've gotten so far was just a campus wide email around lunchtime about the shuttle buses shutting down until the routes were passable. I've been telling people since 11:30.

I've been a voice crying in the wilderness! Most of the people here at work think I'm nuts. "Yeah, yeah, there she goes again; spouting off about the weather."

I guess they put it off sendinig anything out until right before the shift change.


All of us WU Weather Nerds get that from friends and family who just don't understand! :o)

But anytime they have questions about the weather they come directly to us!!!

Are they letting you all go home early???

Stay safe.



Quoting shoreacres:
WHAT?!? You, too? Good gosh. I guess I'd better find me a radar and take a gander at what's going on there. You must have gotten Gamma's leftovers! LOL

I did find this while I was eating lunch - it's interactive and pretty interesting. You can scootch the map araound, too, like the wundermap, if you want to look at a different section. Tide and Current Map

Be safe on your way home!


Shore, I promise I did not send my nasty rain up to bug but this Isaac character has not consideration for anyone it appears!!!

Hi Bug,

first of all thank you so much for checking on me all the time the past few days. I appreciate it very much.


Now over on Dr Master's blog someone posts a picture of folks in boats floating thru your Market place...

and now I come here and see floods for you too.


WOW, is this part of that system that broke off Isaac that hammered us for 2 days?

Are you ok...

Drive safely thru the flood waters..

now thinking of you and the South Carolina friends,
as well as the Northern Gulf Coast bunch!

Hope the flooding stops soon.
Member Since: Posts: Comments:
Oh Bug,
Take it easy going home. Hopefully the rain has stoppd and the floods receded.
