She was small in stature but even the tallest looked up to her. Her voice was soft but her message rang loud and clear and will echo forever. Thank you, RBG. Rest In Peace. Respectfully, Dolly Parton
Comeback Coolers will make a trip this Saturday, September 19th to area(s) affected by Hurricane Sally. Our main base of operation will be out of Ocean Springs, MS. We need coolers decorated and we need them FAST - by Friday at 5:00 pm. Let's plan on sending 300+ coolers. That's 300+ coolers decorated, stocked, and packed by Friday at 7:30 pm! Can we do it?

Tropical storm conditions are occurring in portions of the warning area across the western Florida Panhandle and Alabama, and these conditions will gradually spread westward this morning and continue into Wednesday.Preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to completion. A tornado or two will be possible this morning in coastal areas of the Florida Panhandle and Alabama. The tornado threat should increase and slowly spread inland the rest of today into Wednesday. For storm information specific to your area, including possible inland watches and warnings, please monitor products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office - www.weather.gov At 7 a.m. CDT, the center of Hurricane Sally was located about 65 miles (110 km) east-southeast of the mouth of the Miss. River and about 105 miles (170 km) south-southeast of Biloxi, Miss. Sally is moving toward the northwest near 2 mph (4 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue this morning. A northward turn is expected this afternoon, followed by a slow north-northeastward to northeastward motion tonight and continuing through Wednesday night. On the forecast track, the center of Sally will pass near the coast of southeastern Louisiana today, and make landfall in the hurricane warning area tonight or Wednesday morning. Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher gusts - a category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles (205 km). Although little change in strength is forecast until landfall occurs, Sally is still expected to be a dangerous hurricane when it moves onshore along the north-central Gulf coast. The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide... - Mouth of the Mississippi River to Dauphin Island including Lake Borgne...6-9 ft - Mobile Bay...6-9 ft - Dauphin Island to AL/FL Border...4-7 ft - AL/FL State Line to Okaloosa/Walton County Line including - Pensacola Bay and Choctawhatchee Bay...2-4 ft - Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas...2-4 ft - Port Fourchon to Mouth of the Mississippi River...1-3 ft - Okaloosa/Walton County Line to Chassahowitzka including Saint Andrew Bay...1-3 ft Overtopping of local levees outside of the Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System is possible where local inundationvalues may be higher than those shown above. Sally is expected to be a slow moving system as it approaches land producing 10 to 20 inches of rainfall with isolated amounts of 30 inches along and just inland of the central Gulf Coast from the western Florida Panhandle to far southeastern Mississippi. Historic flooding is possible with extreme life-threatening flash flooding likely through Wednesday. In addition, this rainfall will lead to widespread moderate to major flooding on area rivers. The next complete advisory will be issued by NHC at 10 a.m. CDT - www.hurricanes.gov ... See more
