I knew I'd lose it so I put it in a safe place, and now I can't remember where it is.

It began to rain gently about 3 hours ago but the winds are still barely above a breeze, and after a good supper (cooked by the second year students under the tutelage of crazy German Frank) outside at the Morrisette house, it is still hard to believe that we are supposed to have 10-15 hours of hurricane force winds tomorrow. It feels like all this emergency planning and refugee-like mentality is a bit of an over-reaction.

But already, Mobile (the port of south Alabama) and surrounding areas have had their power knocked out leaving around 100,000 without power in the Alabama area alone. Two people have been killed by one of five tornados in Florida, 52ft waves have been recorded by buoys and the eye still hasn't made landfall. I'm following it all at this newssite blog.

One thing I still haven't got my head around is how the eye can be moving north at 12 mph yet the surrounding winds are at 135-160mph. Meanwhile, they still haven't cancelled the college football games. In Greensboro, the old cliché of the calm before the storm rings true.
