Storm update

Nice and quiet between bands again. It was heavy for a while a bit earlier, but that settled down nicely, at least ’til the next one comes. OTOH, the newest forecasts say the thing may not be gone until Monday morning. What a wreck of a holiday weekend. Somebody put an outboard motor on that thing and get it movin’!

UPDATE: The latest track gets it out into the Gulf by mid-afternoon tomorrow which is a marked improvement. Still, this sucks. Power just went out, then on, then out longer, now it’s back on. Whee.

  • On the scene

    Folks outside Florida can see our local (Orlando) coverage on WESH Channel 2, WKMG Channel 6, or WFTV Channel 9. I believe all 3 are providing free streams of their coverage so you can see exactly what I’m seeing on the teevee.

  • Back for now

    Power’s on again. Thank you Progress Energy!

    A major squall just went through (the juice came back right as it was pounding the hardest, so those linemen deserve a raise) but it’s quieting down again.

    Power just went out. We’ll see if it comes back. Shutting down…

  • Waiting is the hardest part

    Depending which teevee station you listen to the thing has either slowed down to 3 MPH or stopped entirely. In the latter case I expect it to suddenly veer towards Miami given Steve H’s incredible sarcasm about it.

    A roundup of some folks blogging the storm is at Kathy’s place.

    First feeder band came through – some nice winds and briefly heavy rain, but now the sun’s out again. Apparently it won’t even make landfall until after midnight now.

    Joe Gandelman has a nice summary of the Russian hostage crisis, along with a link to an essential editorial by Ralph Peters in today’s New York Post.

    UPDATE: Joe double-posted, so if he deletes the one I linked above, try this instead.

    The EUnuchs are united in their outrage that Russia is harassing that nice Religion of Peace™. But Putin isn’t gonna just let them either.

    Paul at WizBang has a great blow-by-blow (and I mean that in multiple ways, of course) of Kerry’s “rebuttal” speech. Many are speculating that he was drunk given how slurred his speech was. I guess he *is* just like Ted Kennedy…

  • Here’s your bounce

    Conventional wisdom said that Kerry got no convention bounce because voters were polarized and there were no undecideds. Conventional wisdom just got nuked.

  • Go figure

    Several of the hostage-takers in Russia turned out to be Arabs, not Chechens.

    Unsurprisingly, the Guardian says it’s Putin’s fault for not being nicer to the Chechens.
