Watching Katrina

I've been keeping my eye on Katrina, the hurricane that came ashore in the gulf coast. We are expecting what is left of her to move through Tennessee late tonight and through the day tomorrow.

School has already been called off for Tuesday, so they must be expecting severe weather - or at least flooding in the rural areas. Our local forecast (coming out of Nashville) is saying:

Expect an overnight and your Tuesday with following conditions:

-Heavy rains with possible flooding
-Tropical storm force winds of 40 mph and higher
-Wind gusts up to 50mph-Severe storms with high winds and isolated tornadoes possible..
-Localized power outages

Hoping everyone in the path of this stays safe... I'll be online as I can over the next couple of days ;)
