@edgarblythe,
Thank you Edgar,

However calling calling them unwanted guests rather begs the question that the residents of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tidewater Virginia could use the rain.

Hurricanes are part of the weather. Build your house and arrange your affairs to withstand them and no problem. The problem comes when a person does not have his affairs in a sufficient order.

This is not Gods fault. Or Darwins!

@akaMechsmith,
Don't blame Edgar, akaMechsmith (may I call you Mech?). Edgar from Houston merely posted the maps at my behest. I am Realjohnboy from your neighboring state of VA. Hurricanes are indeed part of the weather. I don't disagree with that. And, yes, many parts of our region need rain.
We just don't need it all at one time. I'll be back on that at some point.
Thank you for joining us. -rjb-

@realjohnboy,
So far they've all missed me, although in 2004 I lost power a couple of times.

Crikey!!!!!

Looks like we'll be getting the front left corner winds and rain at the least here in Raleigh. (Similar to when Fran came through in '96 which tore us up big time.)

After tons of rain from Fay and minimal heat since then, the shallow pine tree roots are ripe for flippin' - which has nothing to do with how strongly one girds their home.

Might buy some bottled water on my way home from work tonight.

Actually, looking at the Fran history again, Hanna seems to have a lot of similarities to Fran: landfall point, strength at landfall, even the date and time!

Quote:
As Fran moved northeast of the Bahamas on September 4, it strengthened to a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane intensity. Fran was steered north northwestward by an upper level low pressure system over Tennessee, then gradually turned northward and struck the North Carolina coast around Cape Fear at 8:30 p.m. EDT, September 5. For a more detailed synopsis of Hurricane Fran's path and meteorological conditions contributing to Fran's development, a complete report entitled "Hurricane Fran Service Assessment" can be found on the National Weather Service's web page.

@squinney,
I heard that one or more of these hurricanes are headed for the Carolinas. Are you all prepared?

@BumbleBeeBoogie,
Edgar's last map on Hanna shows it tracking a little east from where it was. Still, SC, NC & VA have declared various degrees of states of emergency due to the treat of coastal flooding. Looks like Raleigh NC and Charlottesville VA will be on the western edge of the circle of rain.
Ike looks like it might go between Cuba and southern FL. It could be a nasty one.

squinney, I was living in Chapel Hill for Fran. That was a bad one.

Hopefully, Hanna will stay east and not make it as far inland as Fran did.

After spending last weekend glued to Gustav's impact on the delta it looks like I'll be spending this weekend glued to tracking Hanna. Mr B's entire family have recently moved to Charleston and are now battening down the hatches.
