Here she comes...Ophelia that is!

The clouds are rolling in and the winds are picking up, and our area is under a hurricane/tropical storm warning. So, if in the next few days I go a long time without posting, don't be surprised because we'll probably lose power here.

My main concern is flooding on the campus, we're just a few blocks from the James river, where it's about 4 miles wide. I'm on a peninsula, with the York River on the other side and the Chesapeake Bay at the end. The campus here is low lying ground, so it'll be interesting.

I'll keep y'all updated!

Why on earth would you use "" to post this?

Hope everything works out all right.

I enjoy severe weather. For the longest time I wanted to be a storm chaser until I realized how much math and science was involved....


I know...

Isabel was two years ago, Gaston was last year. Isabel primarily affected the state with high winds, Gaston was a bastard of a tropical storm who decided to just sit and rotate on top of Richmond and cause devastating floods.

I'm not sure what Ophelia will do but I guess I'll find out!

I know...
Tracking severe weather is one thing... but it is never good news when there is devastation, flooding and general inconveniences for the people affected...

So I do not know whether is an adequate smiley...

Ophelia's a Category 1 that's just supposed to glance the coastline, so I don't imagine there'll be a whole lot of damage.

I went through a Category 1 (borderline Cat 2, actually) and all it did was knock down a few old rickety trees and kill the power. I thought it was actually pretty fun.

Yeah, Cat 1s are fun. I know Ophelia shouldn't be too devastating...i just want classes cancelled....*crosses fingers*

Storms.


I agree, if it's something that won't cause widespread devastation, by all means enjoy it.

We just had a little rain band come through here from Ophelia. The wind got a little gusty too. All the way on the north side of D.C. in Maryland. Now the sun is back out with the clouds.

It started pouring right when I had to go get my son from school, perfect timing.
