If you're feeding from Bigbird or Sasquatch, please plan to have
alternates available over the weekend.  Although we do not anticipate
losing power and backup power, these things have happened before.

For those of you who haven't taken notice, NCH is prog'ing a landfall
due south of my site by about 100 miles.  The degree of recurve after
landfall is subject to some conjecture.  I'm anticipating we'll see 60+
kt sustained winds and 80 kt or so gusts, which is somewhat higher than
this area's used to.  I expect downed trees and power lines, and given
the history of our power system, I expect some power failures.  If we
stay up, there's no guarantee other areas of campus will, as we're
pretty widely dispersed,

See you on the other side...
