Just so people understand what the picture shows, these are not
forecasts.  They're 5 different computer models.  I thought it
was significant that 3 of the 5 were predicting it would either
hit us or come close.  Note that the other two are much more to
the north than the official forecast which seems to be splitting
the middle.  I've noticed, though, today, that the official forecast
seems to be slipping southward (it was Cape Hatteras or Ocarkoke (sp?)
but has now gone down towards Moorehead City).  If it slips any
further south, it's likely going to hit us directly.

Take a look at


to see where it is now and then take a look at


and notice we're now inside the yellow danger area (and so is as
far west as Greensboro and maybe even Boone on the edge)!

On the bright side, Isabal seems to be hitting colder water now and
is down to a category 2.
