Water-logged Sunday

Good morning Friends ~ Just and update on our weather. The photo below shows Isaac as of 10:45 this morning. The orange circle with black dot, is Isaac, not a hurricane yet. We are on the east side of FL near the blue blob which is Lake Okeechobee. We are under tropical storm warnings. The rain and winds come in circular bands. 4.92 inches of rain is expected over the next couple of days. It would be nice if we could send some of this rain where it is needed.

Here is a live radar picture, you can see the bands and that we have lots of rain in store. Isaac is off of Cuba right now, moving wnw at 20 mph, about 110 miles east-southeast of the Keys. Max. winds are at 65 mph for the hurricane. Our winds have been around 23 mph, gustier at times, but that is mild, although it sounds worse at times.

We’re having a cup of herbal tea, just relaxing indoors today. I’ve been working on a needlework piece, a heart, sewing on more beads. This piece is definitely a work in progress, as I have no plans, just winging it. Each bead has the thread run through it twice to hold it onto the fabric more securely, all time consuming, but I’m almost done with these for this part of the piece.

Enjoy your day whatever you are doing, count your blessings and have a great week.

We were wondering how things were going your way with Isaac. We are watching it as well here in Tallahassee.

I hope Isaac goes way out to sea and leaves no damage.Stay safe indoors, herbal tea, beading, a good book, relax and leave outdoor work for another day. Cheers, Jean.

Stay safe, Lorraine... I've been thinking about you all---and hoping that the worst of the storm misses you.

Hugs,

Lorraine, NZ TV has just had some news about Isaac, Monday 27th, after 6 p.m. and I do hope it missed your place, but the amount of water flooding many places was looking so bad.Stay safe. Greetings from Jean.
