    All you guys down there in LA - getting ready for the flooding? This is only the second storm this season and its making landfall (although right now its just a tropical storm).

    ha ha...if there's one thing about photographers...it's always about getting the shot! ;)

    Seriously though, it's raining here, and it will for the next few days. This storm isn't much of a threat to us, as it's pretty weak. I'll post anything interesting happening, but so far it's just another day at the office. So far, nothing like last year's back to back storms to hit. Those were threatening, but proved to be nothing terrible once they hit landfall.

    Now that I'm thinking about it, I didn't bring my camera with me today. It would make for some decent shots, as it floods in this part of town easily. :eek: :D

    Its not a really big storm - 70 mph winds - so I'd expect it would be more of a nuisance than anything more dangerous.

    And I hope you all weather the storm safely....:D

    Exactly. If it were bad even, I'd do the same thing I did last year: crack open a bottle of red & enjoy soak up the weather & spirits. :D

    U guys should see some of the hurricane parties that get thrown. :eek: ;)

    Our weathman talked about Bill last night, always wonder why NE is so focused. We are only expecting some rain. He said gee, "Here's one that we can pronounce.!" :p

    I hope that all of you in LA will be safe. Please keep is posted!

    Well I just got the word that we're shutting down the office for today. I'll be heading home in a minute. The Mayor of New Orleans also ordered all city employees to go home as well.

    Looks like I'll have a day of green zen tea & Macrumors... ;)

    Kind of early in the year for this sort of storm, isn't it? Sat out several during my North Carolina days. I have to admit, I love storms.

    Actually, no. Hurricane season started a couple weeks ago, so we're right at the begining. ;)

    There's been a slight bit of flooding going on, but mostly it's been nothing. Took me about 45 mins to make it home due to a couple stops from a wrecked & stalled car. Guess I'll just play around till later on, then go back to work in the morning. :D

    photos!!

    The weather got pretty rainy here. It didn't get terrible around where I live, but we had a few power outages.

    During one of them, sitting outside was more comfortable with the breeze than inside with no AC. So, while sitting around, all of a sudden I notice this weird red hue that comes over the atmosphere, lighting up everything in a very weird way. The color shifts to yellow a bit, then back to red again.

    The center of the storm was right over. Keep in mind, these are during the span of about 30 mins. The pink color u are seeing is clouds, not sunset.

    well Bill was a breeze (stupid pun intended :) )

    I got a day off of work... the worst part was the drive home. I have to cross the Causeway... which is 25+ miles over open water... it got a little dicey towards the end. It was actually quite scary but i made it home ok. The rest of the day was spend watching the wind blow and the rain come down. The yard got a good bit of water in it... but that is what happens when you live below sea level...

    i got a few pics, but alas... i dont have digital so it may be a few months before i see em.

    hope everyone else in the area came out ok... i wasnt really much of a storm. (not what we are used to anyway)

    We closed the university for a cloudy day. I bet Dr Authement is kicking himself in the tail right now. It didn't even get windy! I was hoping to play in the rain too :mad: Oh well, there's still plenty of storms to come, I'm sure.

    Nice pictures eyelikeart, thank you for sharing. Are they pictures of your house and yard? Where you live are you 6" below sea level, or I guess what I'm wondering is all of New Orleans below sea level. It's amazing that you don't have more damage!

    you can't seriously expect us to believe those colors are real.... hahahah!

    i've attached a comparison of a picture i took along with a tweaked version (to get some colors along the lines of eye's hurricaine pictures)

    i rest my case. ;)

    The photos were taken at my mother's house. There wasn't nearly enough weather activity to bring any damage. As said earlier, this was a very minor storm.

    Now, jello...u believe what u want. I have no reason to post fake images up. I was there, and I have witnesses who saw exactly what I did. ;)

    I believe you eyelikeart. A photographer always has pride in his work. Getting just that right picture is a source of pride!
