Glad you could keep that storm away from us Stan. We need a cold front now.

I'm do glad to see that thing is predicted to go somewhere else.

I have a cousin in Baton Rouge and we text back and forth during hurricane season. She seems to think that they have been jinxed, in the last few years. She likes bragging about the Cajun Navy though. I'm sure, however she's watching this storm with a wary eye, as is everyone on the Gulf.

Still looking for a front Monday night into early Tuesday. Won't be "cold" but the morning lows will range from the mid-to low 70's at the beach mid-week, with perhaps even a little cooler by Thursday or Friday.
