Trapped in hurricane hell:
Seems like I'll never get away. So Ivan did another terrible job on the Appalachians, particularly in the area of Western NC that took the big hit from Frances. The Asheville Citizen-Times is again doing a marathon job of reporting the damage, including reader-submitted photos. There are at least 7 deaths so far, and an interstate highway (I-40) closed.
Again, the storm didn't do much in this far western corner of the state (thank heaven), but we haven't had power for much of the last three days and no word on when it might be restored.
So posting is limited for now. I have a little battery time on the laptop, but don't want to use it all up. Back again in a day or so?

Speaking of Ivan, The Miami Herald is covering the devastation in the Pensacola area, including another interstate closure (I-10).
