It obviously won't be high winds or a strong storm, but it could make for a rainy weekend. We'll have to keep an eye on this. Bring swim trunks and don't be afraid to get wet!

It can't get any wetter than the 06 Philly Fest, the rain fest. We had fun anyway.

Hmm

If you're having a wet weekend with Isaac, you must be in Gitmo. Hopefully you aren't one of the "residents"

Philly was wet but the big overhang at the conf room area was a blessing. The Show and Shine was dry and the auto cross event.

Oh, thank you for an NHC link. Love it when folks actually use the NWS and not TWC. :-)

I'm not exactly made of sugar and certainly won't melt.:what: Let it rain. We need it....badly.

Guess who's in New Orleans (well Kenner, actually, near the airport) this evening?
Guess who's hoping to get the hell out on Monday afternoon!

Wow Lug_Nut! Be safe and get some pics if you're still in town when the storm starts to blow in!

I'd love to follow a road trip thread if you are inclined to post one. If not, happy driving!
