Here comes Danny-boy. The Atlantic seems to be taking another shot at NYC.

Is the weather expected to be hot along its track?
They seem to be predicting it picking up energy as it moves north.

I don't think it has enough time to get big. It will probably stay a Tropical Storm -- lots of rain for the NE. but that's about all.

NOAA's National Hurricane Center has it listed as a Tropical Storm.

Should I panic now or later tomorrow? Just trying to coordinate things.

Go ahead and wait until tomorrow, but please schedule with me so I can watch. Seems like I may be looking to relocate to Charlotte, NC so I need to take notes on how to panic.

You've got plenty of time to decide IF to panic. The REAL question is which method to employ.

OMG....Patrick McManus is the best. When I went out to Utah and did the Green River for ten days, I took along "They shoot canoes, Don't they?" and read aloud to my two other fellow canoers in the evening with a great fire going. We looked forward to those stories so much, that now I recommend that book to anyone venturing out and wanting something to read. If you want to laugh out loud, all the deer hunters will appreciate his "Deer on a bicycle" story, in which he goes hunting as a kid, only has his bike, wings a deer, and thinking it's dead he straps himself to it to get it home. Halfway down a hill the deer wakes up and......well, you can pretty much guess the rest. I wish I had a friend like Retch Sweeney!

I just HAD to chime in here. smile If you haven't read Pat McManus, you are truly missing out. I had loaned "A Fine and Pleasant Misery", "They Shoot Canoes, Don't They", and "Never Sniff A Gift Fish" to a friend who returned them just today ! Talk about timing. My favorite line came from the story "The Green Box" where Rancid Crabtree said "Ah ain't grinnin'. Ah thank I ruptured maw face pullin' thet dang slangshot!" (And yes, that's the way it was spelled.)

Cheers,
LW

I'm actually on "standby" alert here in the city - Red Cross has plans to open shelters "if needed", so they put their folks, and us, on standby (yawn)

How on earth am I to learn how to panic properly without an example and guidance?
