Rain continues here in the B'ham area. We are simultaneously under an Inland Tropical Storm Warning and a Tornado Watch, and one local meterologist has advised that no one should be on the roads between 9 p.m. tonight and noon tomorrow.
Looks like the Alabama Gulf Coast will be spared the worst of Dennis -- he has made landfall well east of the state, which means the prevailing winds will be blowing water away from the Gulf. Still, this is no cakewalk for anyone near Dennis, and we all feel for the Floridians who will get the brunt of this storm.
Oddly enough, because of the change of storm track, the TS Warning for Birmingham may be upgrade to an Island Hurricane Warning later today!
But the GGB is wearing her favorite storm tracking shirt and is ready for anything. More later ...
