Over the last 48 hours we have kept a close eye on tropical storm Isaac
First, it appeared as if it was going to hit our home in Florida, which caused a little bit of panic. The, as many predicted, it ended up missing our home in Florida and it is heading straight for the Big Easy. That causes a little bit more of panic.
We have taken all the necessary precautions to make sure Mi Casa II is ready for the storm, and we have made plans to join friends in town if the storms gets to be more than we can handle.
Mi Casa II had to be stripped down of all the plastic sidings and anything else that could possible blow away in the storm. The kayaks are all tied up to a post and provide a little peace of mind. We have our clothes packed and if we have to evacuate we are ready. It turns out that we are at the safest possible place to be in case of a storm. Levees and sea gates soround us and our marina has floating docks in case the water rises. Many boats have come in from the neighboring areas looking to harbor their boat here.
Our back up plan is to head up to Baton Rouge, but according to weather reports, Isaac will likely not be a very strong storm when it arrives. So far there is no mandatory evacuation for this area.
We will keep an eye out for developing news. The plan remains to have the boil on saturday. Obviously we are praying that no damage is done and everyone can get in safe.
The storm is expected to make landfall on wednesday, exactly seven years after Katrina. We are ready.
