whoa ... that was intense

***
SOME EXTREMELY VIOLENT WINDS HAVE BEEN PRESSING DOWN AGAINST MY HOME ... STRONGER AND MORE SUSTAINED THAN ANY I'VE FELT SO FAR TONIGHT

It's almost 2 a.m.

My house shook a couple of times and the roar was so bad I thought it might be a tornado.

I hope the tree in front of my house survives this constant onslaught. We've had rain every day for weeks so the ground is already saturated making the roots susceptible to high winds like this.

Isaac is just to our West and South meaning we are getting the worse in wind and tidal surge.

I can hear a lot more creaking, banging and groaning in the houses, garages and sheds around me.

My power is still on.

I sure wish this hurricane would get on its way soon. Will try to go to sleep but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

4 a.m. update: Still haven't slept. Winds remain high intensity and constant and we are getting that torrential rain we expected. Isaac pretty much has been sitting right on top of us pounding away for maybe 7-8 hours without moving.

Pretty bad.

Sounds like you are ok so far... but the storm is just begun. We have been watching for posts constantly. Sounds like your repairs are holding well.

sounds like some things down river have been tough.
