They wouldnt let me go to work today so I'm stuck at home waiting for her arrival. I dont think it's going to be that bad in the DC area. By the time it gets here it'll probably be just a tropical storm.

In Camden, SC, (KCDN) we're getting the wind and cirrus clouds above from Isabel...pretty cool. Screwed me out of a long XC though to Alabama- we'd be coming back against a 40kt headwind and we just had a Navajo do a pretty scary "one wheel, bounce a couple a times and then slam the brakes" sort of landing.

Yeah my travel plans went out with Isabel, my Uncle in Baltimore has no electricity and the boat we were sposed to go fishing on is probably a mile inland by now.
