gulf nail biting

I just got out my AAA travel maps from the road trip I took to the gulf four years ago. Alabama. Louisiana. Mississippi. Have been surfing to Al.com, site of the Mobile Register. Glad the Weatherbug folks are observing Ivan from Mobile.

(Some photos I took from the area east of Mobile Bay— Fresnel lenses at Fort Morgan… You’ll probably be hearing more about Fort Morgan, which is at the extreme southern end of Mobile Bay, across from Dauphin Island. Fairhope and Mobile Tunnel. )

I’m nail biting for friends who happen to be that area. Crazed circumstances. Evacuation not as straightforward as it would seem. Please, haven’t they been through enough without Ivan to top it off? Think good thoughts for ’em, please.
