Quote: Wow..what a horrible day to be boarding up..95 degrees, I can't wait...this track reminds me so much of Ivan, and I really hate it that we are just about to lose long range radar....unlike Dennis thou, there has been no recent upwelling of water in the Gulf and the temps all the way to the coast are very warm..and the slow speed is going to create a huge storm surge for somebody, possibly all across the central and NE gulf coast
I think you can wait until tomorrow to board up in Pensacola - maybe, anyway - from the standpoint of having time to just board up (if you're not going anywhere but just putting boards up). I *really* hope that Katrina does not hit Pensacola. Nothing against New Orleans, but Pensacola still has not fully recovered from Ivan and, well, Pensacola landfall would put me just outside of the really nasty stuff (140+ MPH winds projected).
