Inland tropical storm Katrina: As I head to bed, it’s raining in Nashville. (Here’s a link to the National Weather Service’s Experimental Radar from Nashville, although I’m not exactly sure what the experiment is. Southest of Nashville, towards Chattanooga, there are tornado watches and throughout most of middle Tennessee, there are flash flood watches and an “inland tropical storm warning.” I’m sure they’ve been issued here in the past, but I can’t recall ever hearing that specific “inland tropical storm” alert before.
If it’s really windy outside later (30-40 MPH is predicted), I’ll get up early in the morning and go stand outside and pretend to be Anderson Cooper. As the utility lines in my neighborhood are tree magnets, I predict some web-access challeges in a few hours.
