Go Away ISSAC!!!

This is how I feel!!!!  We finished getting everything together this evening to ride out the storm.  We needed a new battery for the generator and made our first shop a LOWE'S.  They were completely out.  So, since we need to stock up on a few more groceries, we went to Wal-Mart.  Crazy does not even cover the way that place was.  They did have 1, and only 1 of the batteries we needed for the generator.  The water, batteries, and bread was going quick, and canned meat GONE.  Nothing.  

I was soo looking forward for an excuse to eat me some SPAM with Bacon.  That stuff is sooo good, but soo bad for me.  LOL  But no Spam of ANY KIND found on the shelves.  But we did get everything else we needed.  

I stole a few friends pictures from Facebook to show the calm before the storm.  The first one was taken  by my friend Howard Jordan.  He lives on the the Eastern Shore and took this photo this evening.  So beautiful.

This one was taken by that Awesome DJ, Lee Ann Waterrs on 92ZEW.  This was Gulf Shores earlier today.  

The latest computer models still have Mobile in the equation, but it is still too early to know where it will make landfall.  

But Ollie from the family guys does have the right forecast.  It is going to rain.  LOL

Mobile County has issued Evacuation Orders for Zones I and II.  We are about 1.5 miles from Zone I.  But we are going to be just fine.  We are far enough away from the water so we are ready to ride it out.  Hope everyone stays safe.  




  1. I sure do hope that Isaac keeps his distance. Wow, the reality really sets in when you see shelves like that in the store. Stay safe!

  2. Thanks Betsy! The forecast this morning has it even further west than it was yesterday. I have many friends in Louisiana, and I don't wish it on anyone, but will be so glad if it misses me.
