There is something wicked moving across the south and heading east.

Just thought about Dave and Penny in Alabama and all those this might effect.

Hi Islandcruz. I live in NY and they are calling this a Noreaster. They are predicting hurricane force winds with power outages expected. Right now, 10" is expected. But, the worst by far, will be the 50+ mph winds, golf ball sized hail and flooding that's expected. It is to start Sunday and continue through Tuesday. It will be one of those sit and just spin sort of storms. No early Spring for us. A'ndrea

Just rain and a few lightning strikes in north Alabama. Worst is south of us.

Glad to hear that. Here in Memphis, we lucked out...although we did get a little hail last night and some wicked winds on Wednesday.

Dave- Glad to hear it.

A'ndrea- I have seen that forcast it is going to be nasty for sure up your way. Yall better take care.

LHP- Glad to hear you are getting spared so far.

They just put us under a tornado watch, but I think the worse is going to be up north. Just be glad for it to pass, don't care for the threat or the lightning

I live in Orlando, I hope we get spared from the storm. We had more than our fare share of storms with the hurricanes of '04 & '05.

I hope this storm doesn't disrupt anyone's cruise if they are out there now.

By the way... LHP:
I can tell you are a loyal Carnival cruiser. So, do you have a favorite Carnival cruise ship?

I think the worse is by me now. This thing does pack a little punch. It did fizzle a bit for my location, but at the same time I have rarely seen the marsh back up with ocean water and white caps other than a hurricane. Could be the moon and tides adding to it.

Our highest wind was 34mph so far, and did make the trees sway. Wish I was sending some Sweet Tea up North instead of this..we just clocked 42mph gust!

As we say down here "batten down the hatches" and "hunker down" it could get nasty.

Hi Islandcruz. Oh yeah, it's begun! Our elevation is higher than 1500 feet, so we are getting the actual "winter" effects from this Spring Noreaster. Governor Spitzer has been on the air warning of power outages. The American Red Cross has given informational broadcasts, as well. It definitely is a hunker down kind of storm. I've purchased my bottled water, have the flashlights on my kitchen counter and candles ready, just in case. My husband flew out to Las Vegas this morning on business. So, it's just me and the girls and I'm 30 minutes to the nearest grocery store. I am not taking any chances. They say to expect the storm to go until Tuesday with flooding, sleet, snow, ice and, high winds in excess of 60 mph. Oh my !
Thanks for your concern. You take care too.

Kind of windy and a little rain here in Mami. They say it is going to get worse later in the day.

Well I miss-spoke for sure yesterday when I thought the worse was by me. We ended up with much higher winds. We had 3 tornadoes in close counties and 3 deaths. Hope my friends up north are doing ok.
