Looks like Isaac has a date with a duck!
This isn't going to be a world-class disaster. It's only barely going to strengthen to category 1, and by the time it reaches Illinois it'll just be a big rain storm. But that's a good thing: Iowa and Illinois can certainly use the rain.
I don't think it's even going to be a significant problem on the Gulf Coast. We won't be seeing empty lots with buildings blown away; the winds just won't be that high.
If we're lucky it'll veer even further to the west, so that Kansas and Nebraska can get some of it.

(Desperate times; I needed the job, I admit. But I didn't appreciate that callousness at all. Gee, I wonder why all our high tech manufacturing moved to China.)

I'm okay with rain on Saturday. We really do need it... we were something like seven inches in the red for July, and we're not a whole lot better for August. The corn/soybean field behind Pond Central is lookin' awfully short this year...
