    The last update has us barely out of the cone of uncertainty. We are still on for surges. I live about ten miles from the Gulf coast. I'm sticking to my daily routines, signed up to carry my older neighbors to safety when needed. I will get a yellow vest, sans walkie talkie.

    Windy today. 20 mph gusts and about 63. Looking at the cloud map, the edge of Ian's bands extend past Columbia SC, center of the state, reaching the halfway point between my location and Columbia. I keep feeling like it will go northeast with a more easterly heading while the maps say north with only a slight easterly heading. I may head up to a high vantage point to see if I can view any of the bands as the sun sets. It will be a trick. There is one place I may be able to see the light from the setting sun hit the edge of the bands to the east and south.

    As it would go, a few minutes after my last post I was asked to go to Atlanta at about 1:10 pm. We left out at 2:20. The weather there was nice. When I got home a little while ago, the wind was still gusting.

    So, we did get some light rain and lesser wind gusts on Friday. Saturday was pretty sunny and slightly warmer while still clouds lingered. I had to go back to Atlanta on Saturday and as I traveled southwest the clouds from Ian cleared. It was a perfect late Summer day in ATL even though we are in the Autumn of 2022.

    [edit]
    As I was hoping, the brunt of it, the center of the storm veered further east. Myrtle Beach sustained some damage which may or may not have been overstated by the media. In 2005 I noted that the sewer lines, storm drains and water lines run way too close together. One morning I was on the beach for sunrise pictures and there was a hole big enough to walk through where the storm water drains on to the actual beach itself. With a flashlight I could see everything I just described and of course, the sewage pipes were seeping sewage. A couple of years after that bacteria and the illness it caused was being reported as people were getting sick from going to the beach. Not once did anyone ever openly admit it was caused by deteriorating underground infrastructure via the storm drain exits. People getting sick continued to be reported over the years since but they blamed the ocean water.

    About 76 and 96% humidity. That's a bit tough to handle in November. Feels like 96 and there's no wind.
    Barometer holding steady at 30.19.
    Supposed to be warmer tomorrow.

    Cooler here in SD, with a winter storm out of the Gulf of Alaska on the way.

    They say the world is a stage. But obviously the play is unrehearsed and everybody is ad-libbing his lines. Maybe that's why it's hard to tell if we're living in a tragedy or a farce.

    Ha ha ha ha, we're wet and cold here in CN86jc. Went from summer temps (80-90) to 3 days of fall, to winter just like that.
