Why do I feel as though it will arrive just in time for a Cold Front to reach the East Coast for it to bounce off of, then push it straight into Jersey?
Maybe because Jersey is long over due for the BIG ONE?
I hope not...
Let's all hope for enough pressure to push Isabel backout to sea....
Regardless, all should be prepared for Higher Tides and Heavy Winds whether the storm lands or not.....

Is it insurance fraud if I drive my boat with the broken motor somewhere near??? I'd love to pick up the agreed value instead of fixing the damn motor!!

Sharkey, unfortunitly it seems the nearest High pressure ridge is now centered over the Rockies. and our weather has been at a crawl since Isabel has been on the map.We are suposed to get rain today that has been 3 days moving across Iowa and Illinois. Usually it takes 12-18 hours to make that trip.

I'm guessing a North Carolina hit & then up the coast.

If this thing hits, and it probably will somewhere, if it hits at high tide, the storm surge could be tremendous. I've seen video footage of storm surges of 16 ft. higher than mean high tide, and that's not counting waves. This one could be rough. Let's all think: out to sea. out to sea. out to sea. Good luck everyone....

If you're near the coast, hook up the trailer and run like hell. This will be a bad one. If this hits shore with 140 mph winds or more you don't want to be anywhere near there. Give yourself at least two full days to get out. The roads will be crawling along, bring extra cans of gas, the stations will be crammed. Good Luck to all.

insptech, funny you mention that about your silverton. My father inlaw has a 444 carver he keeps in a covered slip in solomons. Obviously, no trailer for it. By the looks of where that thing is heading, I am sure he is freaking right about now. If that track is right, that is going to push a whole hell of a lot of water up the Chesapeake and into the rivers.
