Hanna's on Her Way

Rain is pelting down outside. The National Weather Service map for 11:00am (EDT) shows Tropical Storm Hanna sitting on the Virginia-North Carolina border, with what should be the eye (except Hanna doesn't have much of an eye, being a Tropical Storm) a bit west of the Newport News/Virginia Beach area. The storm should be up in these parts by mid- to late afternoon. If you like weather stuff, here's a link to the National Weather Service's hurricane page.

Yeah, we're getting drenched too, in waves, which I guess are the bands of the circulation. Raining pretty hard and steadily right now though. My hubby went out and got us pizza for lunch, so he is currently figuring as a heroic figure right now. ;)

We got fairly soaked going to our month D&D game - we stopped at Giant to pick up snacks - but it was all over by the time we left, late in the evening.

Heroic Pizza Man! He braves hurricanes to deliver pies ... !   XD

I seem to be too far west. We even have sunny skies right now.

I checked the radar map just before we left for D&D, and yes, you all were in the clear!

(BTW, how are you doing today?)

Re: (Hanna)
We're getting rain today. I'm feeling a bit better, doing research on electronic portfolios and sitting around. I have a hair appointment this afternoon, and that always makes me feel a bit better about myself.

Re: (Hanna)

Yes, we had rain too, and now it's much cooler.

My hair is just starting to get the it's-growing-out look ... I think I have 2 weeks 'til I get it re-done.

My co-worker has been out sick for two days, making it impossible for me to do much more than the day-to-day updates and revisions - I had to teach a little mini-seminar today without the documentation I wanted to hand out because I hadn't been able to finish it.

I wish you lived closer. If wishes were fishes ... .

I wish I lived closer too.

I also wish I wasn't having kidney stone attacks. I've been trying to tough it out, but it's getting to be time to go to the doctor.

Oh, no! I understand that those are very painful! I'm sorry ... .

They do a sound-wave surgery thing for those nowadays, don't they?

Glad to see she's only 50mph. Be safe!

Yeah, the map of the Atlantic with the hurricanes being cranked out one after another really makes the nature of the storms hit home! You might like this one, too. Try the "spin off your own hurricane" thing! (I did on article on the Galveston hurricane of 1900 for Monday's column, and that was one of the links I found for it.)

Yup...there was a river in my backyard today. But I think it's finally let up!

Yeah, the streets were already drying when we left our friends' place at about 11:00pm.
