Characters of Drama and Suspense
It's that time of year again. Spinning tops of angry water are pirouetting across the Atlantic Ocean stage to bring us the best in entertainment for the fall season line up.

The Weather Channel

Edouard was a mysterious character. His danger blown way out of proportion by the Weather Channel script writers. They had the whole gulf coastal side of Texas running to and fro in an urgency to hoard bottled water and gasoline. A serial killer was heading their way. What a big disappointment, for Mr. Edouard's character was merely puffed up with hot air. Barely stopping to take a leak along the Texas coast.

The character of Fay played out last week as she sponged up over half of the Caribbean seas and squeezed it out all over the Southeast. Some regions welcomed Ms. Fay and her tithing of plentiful water. Other regions cursed her as they floated down their avenues atop of their beer coolers beating off drowning rats and alligators with a fallen twig. Trust me on this, I lost three pairs of heels to Ms. Fay with one sole still laying out on the grass by our mailbox.

Today we have Gustav, sprung up and ready to pounce into the Gulf of Mexico. A Zorro of sorts, pointing his sworded path straight to New Orleans. Speaking of loosing shoe soles, the booted shape state of Louisiana are tightening their laces in preparation for this character. Mr. Gustav may be dangerous enough to make all our hairs stand on end.

And who may I ask, is this young lady dancing on the heels of Gustav northeast of Puerto Rico? Such a character of depression at the moment. Ms. Hanna is seemingly unsure on where she would like to spend her end of summer vacation. The Bahamas look appealing. Maybe the clean white beaches of Florida. Perhaps there will be Labor day festivities next week along the coastal Carolinas?

But wait, I hear coastal Savannah, GA is nice this time of year. Chef Paula Dean has some crispy fried chicken and Krispy Kreme bread pudding on buffet downtown. They serve Guiness on tap and it's about time for a variety of seafood festivals in and around the area. An added plus is that blogger person Margaret lives there and is in dire need of an issue to write about.

Stay tuned to The Weather Channel folks. If Ms. Hanna decides to stop by and visit me next week - I promise to make every effort to get naked and run in the wind behind the Weather Channel's Jim Catore while he broadcasts from the shores of Tybee.

    Best weather report I've ever read. You left me with such an image.

    River Street rocks in the rain! Well, at least, the bars there do, especially if I'm inside one and drinking as per the norm...

    Tell ya what! Gustav is said to be headed towards New Orleans and Southern TX...that's me. If your hurricane hits you..you run naked with your web cam or pics...If my Hurricane hits me..I will do the same...then we can share.

    It's a bit of high anxiety around here. Almost every update has the "cone of uncertainty" hooking closer to Houston...

    Flyinfox seems to be on the right track--wherever the storms hit--be ready to streak!
    OK, I am kidding. As a Florida native who then moved to New Orleans for 7years, I remember watching the Weather Channel this season!
    We live in the Midwest now but are heading to San Antonio this weekend to visit family. I'll be watching the weather a little more carefully now though to see if I see anyone I may know! ;)
    Stay safe and dry --though I found such vivid imagery and wonderful writing in this post, I'm half hoping you get a close call just so we can read more colorful posts!
    Thanks, Margie!
