May as well chat before my power goes off!

As you may or may not know....Hurricane Issac is headed my way....took some pictures from my backyard last night of the sunset...thought I'd share...awesome clouds

(unfortunately my phone did not do the colors justice!)

And here's a screenshot from the hurricane tracker app form this morning...I'm the blue dot! Issac is about 100 miles away

I hope Isaac isn't changing his planned way and leaves your place alone!
Thanks for the pictures, impressive clouds this way.

Take care Jill!

Hurricane or no hurricane...we do have impressive clouds here.

Still have power....hubby wants to road trip to Austin (that's 7 1/2 hours with 2 kids and 3 dogs...one of which is a 155 lb St Bernard)....I think I'd rather suffer.

Where's the fun family vacation in that?

Going to play possum now

Lots of wind and odd rain....kind of horizontal...LOL

Supposed to hit us tonight.....we've got curfews in place in the parishes.

So while I have computer access I'm posting funny stuff on my personal FB page...LOL

Saw your post on FB that your power is back on! Glad all is safe.
Now we are waiting for the remnants of Isaac to hit the midwest! They now are saying 3-6" of rain in the St. Louis area in the next 2 days! Whew.....that's a lot! But....it is sooooo needed! The Mississippi River here is so low from the drought.

Depends on what parts of the state you are in! Some areas are getting dumped on, and then others nothing!
But, the rain is so needed that it's welcome whereever it comes!
