Prepared here, although I'm not as close as most.

However, the people that are totally flipping their lids are kind of annoying. I'm no n00b to hurricanes, been in Louisiana for a decade now and watched the eye wall of Rita go right over me. So, I'm not too worried about Isaac. He is a Category 1 now, I think, and that is nothing compare to what we have been through.

My biggest worry is flooding and power loss. The big creek behind me should suck up most of the water, but I hate losing power.

Those south of New Orleans or IN New Orleans, stay safe. Idk if those levees can be trusted. ):

Isn't it suppose to do more tomorrow? I hope those levies don't break. That's so scary. Hope you all stay safe or get out of Dodge for a while.

We had a hour storm and that was it here. We expected some wind or rain with how big it is but apparently not. Mia Jeremy and I have both been saying it was ya'll. There was no way it was headed here the way they predicted and definatly not Tampa *rolleyes*

I am in the levee protection system . I feel confidant in the new ones they have built. I have handled most if the rock and cement barged into the various projects. The material is good and there has been so much scrunity during the whole process. It is not complete but this is a smaller storm than what it was designed for. There is sprinkles so far. Wind is picking up. On the coast there is flooding but they always flood and the houses are built on stilts. We are prepared and spending family time building memories. LOL

The wind is bad here already and we are a long way from it being here. /:
