Watching Hurricane Ivan
A few days ago, I just had a feeling Hurricane Ivan would be coming to my area. Now, it's looking far more likely that he is. I'm glad that it looks like central and south Florida will be spared, because those folks have had enough trouble. However, I'm not happy with the idea of Ivan coming here. I just hope that the predictions of it weakening some before making landfall in the U.S. are correct.
I gather from reading the discussions on Ivan that hurricanes usually can't maintain category 5 strength for very long because they have to regenerate the eyewall -- or something like that. Right now, it's a category 4. I'm just glad I live in a sturdy house, should it come here.
Yesterday at the grocery store, people were already buying supplies. Yes, I bought supplies, too.Posted by Susan B. at 9:08 PM to Stormy Weather
