Finally, a word from Jake the Weatherdog!!!

Hi pals!! Remember me? Jake the Weatherdog?

It seems I have been derelict in my duties as a reporter of Hurry Canes, as Isaac has been drifting past our shores without my commenting on it. Fortunately, my good friends, the Key West Collies, reminded me of my responsibilities. And fortunately too, they have escaped direct contact with the center of the storm and are doing fine.

For the most part, the storm here in South Florida has been mild-- so far not reaching Hurry Cane status. We put up shutters anyway on the most prominent of our windows to avoid any projectiles from the wind -- but it was pretty quiet all day Sunday. Today, however, as the storm continues off the west coast of Flori-duh to its destination with the northern Gulf Coast, we are in the dreaded northeast quadrant of the huge storm field and it is windier and wetter than yesterday. Lots of wet fur and paws from our trips outside -- but nothing more serious.

The great irony of Isaac is that most of our radio and TV stations have been dedicating significant programming over the last weeks to commemorating the 20th anniversary of Andrew, which devastated our area on August 24th, 1992. JH and I weren't even born, and Mom and Dad weren't even dating yet, let alone married. She lived on the edge of the storm and lost half her roof and a lot of furniture and other things -- so she hasn't been too into this remembering deal. But along comes Isaac, as if to say, what's with this commemoration stuff? It's my turn! Look at me!

And of course, Katrina hit New Orleans and the northern Gulf Coast seven years to the day tomorrow. (We owe JH to Katrina, so his Gotcha Day will be coming up in September.) So we'll be watching closely and hoping that Mother Nature doesn't repeat herself with Isaac and the Giulf Coast. Keep everyone in your prayers, pals... OK???

That's it from your Weatherdog for the moment.



A pawsome weather report. We definitely missed your pawsome weather reports.

It could be so much worse for you, Jake. We are glad that you will be spared the worst of Isaac. Paws crossed for all others in its path. Never hurts to take those extra precautions.

Great to see you.

A great job once again! We are most interested in having an update, but more important, we hope you stay safe and reasonably dry.

Did you know that if it hadn't been for Katrina, my muzzer wouldn't have found me either? See, we have lots in common. Sorry I yapped at ya.

Jake! You're back! Yee haw.

We do hope the cane thingy hurries past you very quickly and is not horrible to anybody. It sounds quite frightening living where you are.

We have had loads and loads of rain this summer, webbed paws would have been a distinct advantage this year.

Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie

Weatherdog Jake - you're doing a pretty good job updating us on the storms. It's pretty scary, having now experienced a couple of storms in HK. Hope that Isaac will slow down and miss you entirely. Take care ya!
