This weekend, we all await the arrival of Tropical Storm Arlene as she plods along in the Gulf Of Mexico. Heavy rains and strong winds are expected tonight and Arlene should reach the Gulf Coast sometime Saturday Morning.
As of this writing, weather warnings and watches are area-wide as Arlene approaches wind speeds of 60 MPH. Forecasters speculate that Tropical Storm Arlene may upgrade to a minor hurricane by the time “she” reaches landfall. For those not familiar with hurricanes; a wind speed of just 74MPH determines the hurricane classification.
Dave won’t be “going on the road” to escape Arlene, like I did last year; but the possibility of electrical outages and some damage is always a threat. So if you don’t see me for a few days, it means I’m without power.
I’ll let you know how things go, when I return. If we stay connected to the grid, I’ll write some updates and let you know what’s going on. In the meantime, I’m sure you can live through Arlene vicariously through The Weather Channel.
I’ll see y’all after the storm.
