She should be here sometime late this weekend. And by "here" I mean HERE.


Yesterday, forecasters expected her to stay on a more southerly track but it doesn't look like that will be happening. She's tending more toward the north (and right AT us) and it also looks like she will absorb the remnants of Enrique. Lovely.

According to the news I heard this morning, she's on track to hit just north of the Big Island. There is talk that, by the time she hits, she will be *just* a tropical storm but Katrina was *just* a Cat 2 (or 3, depending who you talk to) and look at the damage she did.

So we're off to the commissary this morning. We'll hit the Class VI (the liquor store for those that don't speak military-ese) this afternoon. This just gets more interesting-er and interesting-er. Hang on boys and girls!

Too cool!

Stay safe....
