It certainly is, Shane.

It's beauty to behold, but laden with the wrath of mother nature. Pristine, yet potentially devistating.

I hope that all who will be affected by Isabel are safe and that losses are avoided. Heed the warnings carefully.

We are bracing here in DC too. The media is a having a field day with this; much worse than snow storms. The only place I could find D batteries last night was Tower Records, and only water to be found was a Circle-K off the beaten path. We went on our monthtly trip to Price Club last night too, and the place was a mad house.

Even if the storm cuts itself to half intensity by the time it crosses Richmond and reaches the DC area, 60 mph winds are going to create havoc here. People also need to remember the Ches. Bay is warmer than the Atlantic, and warmer water and air means the storm will probably strengthen a bit as it swirls the bay with its east side. Our ground is already saturated and two inches causes a lot of flooding around here right now. Another 6-10 inches like they say we could get would be detrimental. Old Town Alexandria, and the Georgetown/DC Harbour are going to get slammed. You think the Potomac has looked bad after spring storms before, watch out.

I have a lot of trees on our lot, and am debating having the boat on the trailer tucked up next to the house, or out in the open in the driveway. What do you guys think? All the cars/truck will be inside the garage.

I have been in Hatteras when the water crossed the road during a normal high tide!

Default Did the eye of the storm go on shore yet?
