View Full Version : Awaiting Storm "Hanna" at Edisto Island
09-04-2008, 01:29 PM
Took a drive out to Edisto Island this morning to see how the ocean was looking. We are waiting for Tropical Storm (or maybe Hurricane) Hannah to make landfall late tomorrow. It was a pretty day today, with spectacular blue sky, but the waves were a bit rough out there.
Here's me at the eastern edge of America....
And, turning to look inland, this was on the other side of the beach, what a difference in sky color and clouds, amazing...
And this was a little bit of the wave action.

Looks nice...but I bet you wont be able to stand their tomorrow. Hope it's not too rough
Beautiful beach. Doesn't look like those palm trees in the background have been there all that long. I guess the island was swept clean by provious hurricanes.
Nice sharp photos. You sure picked a good model in the first one. Looks like she (you) knows how to pose casual.

Great shots Linda, it is indeed a beautiful beach. Hopefully the storm isn't too bad.

I hope its only a Tropical Storm. This is killing my charter business...................
I might go to the folly pier tomorrow afternoon and see what it looks like.
IM sure "Jim Cantori" from the weather channel will be out there somewhere making a fool of him self......................................
The outer fringes are close to Fla now.

Thanks all. The pic of me was shot by my mom ;) I wasn't really modelling, I was actually walking along and she just took a few pictures. I don't have many shots of me that I like, but I did like this one.
I'm actually more worried about what Ike might do than Hanna, but we've battened down the hatches and picked up stuff out at the pool, put stuff away from the yard, etc. I'm as ready as we can be. Hoping Ike lessens and stays away.
I imagine this is killing your charter business Rick. Not many folks want to be out on rough water!

Wow, that is a big difference in the sky and clouds in the first 2 pictures. If you hadn't said so, I would not believe that both pictures were taken around the same time period. Hope these storms don't cause too much trouble for you guys...

Here is another cool site you might want to save.............You can click on the storms to get more info.

I used the noaa site all the time, at work. On dialup the maps and satellite shots don't load :(
And, hey, I like Jim Cantori :) What's a hurricane without him??? LOL.

Love the wave.....can almost hear the crashing and smelling the salt air :-D

Love the wave shot. They usually go so fast you can't see that much with the naked eye.
Are you starting to get rain yet?
09-05-2008, 01:11 PM
Yes we are getting rain. It's coming in bands I guess. We just had a dumper that lasted about an hour, but now the sun is shining. It's supposed to get worse after 9:00 p.m.

Skippy,,,the radar loop that I posted stays live.
Its 3:30 now and the wind is only 17mph on the beach.
I am around the end of Interstate-26 where it runs from Columbia straight into the coast, and Linda is about 20 miles south of me.
Yeah, It will rain for a while and then the sun comes out,,,,but that's gonna change.
I hope we don't lose power.

Yeah I know that is live. Love it. We have a hot dry wind from the south at the moment. Compliments of Hanna. That will change tonight. Probably our last real summer like day. Next week highs are all in the 70/60's.
But you all need rain so bad down there. Hope this helps with out a lot of flooding.

Actually we don't need that much rain in Charleston County. We've had a good deal this summer. Upstate and the midlands need the rain, and unfortunately they won't be getting much from this storm as it will be hugging the coastline.
Rick, that live radar in the thread is cool. I find myself referring to it a lot today :)

I thought that live radar was cool too.
