An update…

The first round has come and gone through Charleston within the last half hour. Radar estimates show that little rain has fallen on the metro, which is not so good news, as we could use it. The good news is that the severe weather has gotten noticeably quieter as the daytime heating has ceased. There are a couple storms in south central Georgia that are firing out some warnings, but it’s definitely not as bad as the multiple tornado warnings that Alabama and Mississippi saw earlier on. I haven’t seen an active tornado warning since about 9:45, which is a good sign that the loss of the daytime heating is having an impact on the intensity of the storms.

There’s still a ton of wind in these, though, and the cold front is only now crossing into Georgia, so the worst is yet to come. It’s just a matter of when, and even Brian is uncertain as to the timing.

I’m not going to be a super-crazy person tonight, so I’m just going to hit the sack now. If there’s a nice rumble, I’m sure I’ll hear it. :)

Midday update

I brought WordPress up to 2.1.3 just now — a round of security updates were released for it. I recommend it for everyone who’s rolling their own WordPress installation (the hosted service already got the changes).

A little rainstorm has popped up over the peninsula. One could say these are the first “popcorn thunderstorms” of the year. It’s going to be awful summerlike today and tomorrow, with expected highs in the upper 80s, but Thursday will bring a rude awakening with lows in the upper 40s and highs in the 60s. That should be amusing.

I really recommend you all stop by the Wachovia Auditorium at the Beatty Center for Business and Economics Thursday night, as Peter Applebome from The New York Times will be stopping by for a lecture about how the Times is embracing — and struggling with — the blogosphere. I’ll be there — I hope to see some of you as well.

Looooong night tonight, with the whole 10PM shift and all. Catch you all later…
