Just got the update on Hurricane Katia, which was initially a Hurricane, then a Tropical Storm and has now been upgraded to Hurricane status. It looks a little high to me to make landfall on the US east coast, although Bermuda could be in for a bumpy ride but anyway it will go to England, bringing much cooler weather, wind and rain to water your plants. I’m not a forecaster and NOAA computers are far more clever than me, but let’s see.
At the moment we are at the top of the Chesapeake Bay, but are heading south, through Baltimore, Annapolis and Washington, but should still be 75 miles inland. Irene caused a lot of damage down here last week and Celia and Andrew who left “Alice” at Mystic Seaport in Mass say there is still no electric and some highways are closed.
