Well, it turned out to be the big storm that wasn't, for my neck of the woods anyway. The poor folks in Alabama and the Florida panhandle sure got hammered though. The local forecast had been calling for torrential rain from Ivan today, so much in fact that the county schools were all closed. As I look outside now, I can actually see a small patch of blue sky, and there isn't a drop falling. A few of the local low spots are flooded, but it doesn't appear to be anything out of the ordinary. Your public education system at work. Anyway, here's what Ivan looks like now. I do so love high-res satellite imagery.

Though I'd wager that Dan Rather feels like the hurricane is still on.
