Irene at 7AM

Morning Folks…. Well Irene has made landfall on the Outer Banks, and should get to us late this afternoon. We may disappear for a while since our internet conn is usually the first to go.

For those of you who may be Meterology geeks (like me) you can check the conditions here at the Frog & PenguINN. Our weather station is at http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=KVAONLEY1 and will be on line as long as the net conn and power is on. Then we go to battery backup but no net conn.

Yes we actually have our own weather station. The only changes we made for this storm was to lower the height of our anemometer (wind gauge) from 20 feet to 8 ft so we can record the wind at near ground level since that is what a person would feel.

So where are we???? Look at the top red blob and we are just at the top on that little spit of land just below Maryland.

Top winds so far have been 22 mph from the NE. We’ve had .6” of rain, and the barometer is falling fast (751.6mm).

Next blog @ 1100 hrs (if we are still on line).

Good Morning Folks,
Thanks for all of the well wishes. We seem to be ready (well as ready as one can be). For those that declined the Hurricane Party invite, i fully understand. But for someone who has lived his whole life near the coast this is just the price you sometimes have to pay.
On the plus side, we have fresh tomatoe sauce, Chocolate zuc bread, and the Princess is whipping up some Butternut Squash Soup for later.
