Here we go again....still shuttered up from Frances and now waiting for Ivan. I freaked out last night and decided to head to Georgia but a voice of reason invaded my brain and said to stay. We live on the water and the thought of my house flooding was more than I could bear. We spent 16 hours moving out and boarding up for Charlie and sat thru the winds of Frances. This time the wind and water can have my stuff. I'm too exhausted physically and emotionally to move stuff out again. We'll hole up with friends in their home located in a non-evac area. They promised to keep me buzzed thru the entire event. Don't know if there's enough rum for that. This damn storm is all over the map, from Tampa to Daytona and back again. Latest "cone of destruction" shows it moving further west into the gulf. God I hope so. Only 2 more weeks to Hukilau. Boy do we need it!!!

TD #11 (soon to be tropical storm Jeanne perhaps?) is making its way toward the bahamas for a Saturday landfall. Let's hope it's just a fizzle.

Well, looks like South Florida may be safe for Hukilau...

BUT...our Alabama, Florida Panhandle, Mississippi and Louisiana ohana look to be in for a VERY nasty time.

In particular, I note the serious attitude of New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin,who declared a state of emergency and called for immediate evacuation of the low-lying, flood-prone city. New Orleans...ohhh nooo.

This means it's time to send up some collective VERY good energy and Tiki toasts to our own New Orleans gal Purple Jade and her family! PJ says there's not much we out west can do but get together and blow as hard as we can in a southeasterly direction...

I say stay the heck away from my friend, Ivan! Or I'll kick your ass! (ahem)


really worried now,

The thing it may do is interfere with flights. Some folks are already heading to Florida this weekend for Hukilau, and if an airport or three get closed, it can effect a lot of other places and make people late. Yikes. Freakin' Jeanne looks like it is going north and away from Florida, though if it grows may mean rain. But not likely. It won't happen.

Had a bit of a scare today. Ivan came within 200 miles of us and our tide was extremely high. My Pilikua called me home from my day of play to save the rum and computer incase we flooded. All turned out well at our place. However, some streets in Tampa had 8 inches of seawater running thru them. Still sitting here boarded up waiting to see what Jeanne does. Call me superstitious, but I'm afraid if I take the plywood off it will be an invitation for trouble...... I just hope Jeanne spins her way back out into the Atlantic. Maybe next year we can have Hukilau after hurricane season ends in November. For the lastest update go to weatherunderground.com and blow hard to the east.
To all our 'ohana in Ivans path, our thoughts and prayers go to you.

No worries. I purchased a large amount of battery powered fans, lamps, cooking devices and a TV. I also purchased a HUGE amount of batteries. This will, without a doubt, REVERSE jinx Central Florida from ever getting hit by a hurricane again. Or at least until my batteries go bad. Bank on it!

Ivan is a wicked fugger and I feel horrible for those in it's path. New Orleans looked to be spared for the most part. A local forecaster thinks that Jeanne is going to get demolished by the mountains of the Dominican Republic and likely cease to exist in a day or two.

WooooooWie! the Santa Anna's are blowing early this year.... Warm dry desert winds from the northeast usually blowing hard in Oct.... kind of like a dehydrated hurricane, minus a hundred miles an hour on the winds.
We loose a lot of patio umbrellas and some fences, a turned over semi-truck or two.... let's hope some fire bug doesn't light up a few billion in houses and property by the time I get back from Hukilau.........

I wonder if locals are worried about hurricane "Hukilau" which is set to hit Thursday and not blow out of Ft. Lauderdale until Sunday afternoon.

I can't think of a better way to ride out a hurricane than lashed to a rattan bar stool in the Molokai Bar of the fabulous Mai-Kai!!!

While we're on the no rain thought, let also include the no "Hurricane Jeanne" chant. As of 4:30pm today ,the freakin' news is now saying, that Florida is potentially in the new projected path. #@%#!!!

Hurricane Jeanne, you are NOT invited to Hukilau. Shoo!
