Fun with KSEV Radio - 3 Amigos

This is a quick update to share photos from the KSEV Radio show today. I got to work with 4 amigos and they called me their amiga. Paul and Ben had just returned from The Republican National Convention. Poor Eric was surrounded! But, he was a good sport and wore the McCain shirt they brought him. I got a cool pink McCain hat. Had a great time! We even talked a little weather. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Ike More Worrisome, Cecilia to speak about McCain and Sarah Palin

Please pray for the folks in Haiti. Many are cut off from help, even though rescue efforts have been tried. Families including children have been hungry and thirsty for days. The situation is very dire. Hanna dumped a lot of rain there!

Hanna is the most immediate concern now because of its proximity to land and anticipated landfall on the southern North Carolina coast late today/early Saturday. It does look better organized but so far no intensification. So, the east coast will have a tropical storm to deal with for the first 2/3rds of the weekend. It's going to be a fast mover.

Ike has been weakening some due to shear. But strengthening is likely after a day or so. The big shakeup today is that the storm looks like it will take a more westerly track than previously anticipated. And that means it could get into the eastern Gulf on Tuesday and threaten Florida and/or the northeastern Gulf coast. So far this year, GFDL has been doing fairly well (at least compared to most of the other models). And it is one of the models sending Ike into the eastern Gulf. This is still not a concern for Houston.

Josephine is struggling but will probably stay a minimal tropical storm, far away from land, for the next 5 days.

Enjoyed a nice walk this am. Humidity was still comfortable but it is going to get hot in the afternoons. Should be a nice weekend for the pool or beach. Next shot at rain will be end of the coming week with the approach of the next cold front.

Yesterday I introduced you to one of my favorites, temperatura. I should have told you that the ending is pronounced ahhhhhhhh, not uh. So please file away that clarification.

Today's word is estacionamiento, which means parking lot. I just love that word! The Cecilia pronunciation guide is s-stah-see-oh-nah-me-n-tow. This will serve you well as you drive to the airport and look for a place to park, especially if you are at an airport in a spanish speaking country. Yes. You are so welcome.

I have been invited to be a commentator on KSEV radio Friday afternoon drive home from 4 to 6 pm today. You can catch it on 700 on the am dial. I have some things to share about my feelings about the upcoming election. If you have any special thoughts, please include them as a comment. I will take them all into consideration.

Have a great weekend everyone and be safe!
