Running from the Weather - Again?

A couple of months ago we were evicted from the park for tropical storm Debby. Now the forecast is for Isaac to become a category 1 hurricane and hit this area on Tuesday. Since my 4 month commitment will be over in about 2 weeks, I'm not likely to come back after this next evacuation. Twice in one summer is enough.

Unless Isaac changes his tune I'm probably going to hook up and head north to my home base in central Alabama first thing Sunday morning.

I think it is a good idea to get out prior to the storm hitting there.Why stay there if you really don't have to. Be careful..

Ed - it's definitely time to exit, stage left (or right, whichever). I wouldn't wait around to see what Isaac does. No one will fault you for departing while you can.

Duplicate post. Time for a new mouse. My existing one double clicks when it shouldn't.

I notified the park manager this morning that I would be leaving early Sunday morning. I am exiting stage "north" about 250 miles to my home base.

The park manager's response was "I don't blame you

This is two weeks short of completing my 4 month commitment, but he didn't expect me to come back after Isaac for just two weeks. I did come back 2 months ago after the first evacuation this summer for tropical storm Debby.

I'm seeing the reminents of the storm may loop around just south of us here in Virginia before heading out to the Atlantic. Sure hope we get some rain out of it... For you being right on the coast a CAT1 hurricane can do some damage for sure... Bummer you have to leave again...

Roy - sure wish we could send you some of our rain here in Shenandoah Valley - have had rain here just about every day for a while, and can't keep the grass mowed.

Ten inches of rain in just a few hours. A series of T storms parked themselves over the shore, many roads impassable, many without power, some boats sunk, a few small tornadoes spotted. Looks to be finally moving out now. Glad we were not camping this weekend here!
