I said no hurricane party, but maybe I take that back. One never knows for sure with these storms — despite the full application of modern science, hurricanes can do crazy things that no one can predict — but we weigh the odds and make the best choices we can make. And right now, Isaac ain't looking so bad. And right now, we're planning to hunker to down and ride it out.
But we've got a freezer full of excellent Virginia lamb and a decent chance of power outages (and a very well-stocked bar) and not much to do but wait. Sooo... time to get cooking and cocktailing and gathering the tribe and having a time and making the best of it. Let the good (and safe) times roll.
