Howdy howdy howdy everybody! Yessir, it's Tuesday evening so you know what time it is! Yes, thank gawd - it's time to leave all the bad news and politics behind and escape into our favorite tunes instead!

Well, I am in the direct path of Isaac as of right now. I'm putting this together Monday night instead of Tuesday, cuz I'm not sure I will have power Tuesday night. So if you don't see me in the comments, I lost power, but I'll be here if I do have it. And that's my inspiration for tonight's theme!

The theme tonight is songs about hurricanes and related weather conditions and terms. They can be songs directly referencing hurricanes or weather conditions, or even associated terminology like pressure. They can also be off of albums with any of those in the title or by artists with any of those in their names.

So what are your favorite songs about hurricanes and related weather conditions?

Come below the kosquiggle for a few of mine!

Also, one quick note: In an effort to try to cut the upload time, if you can remember, when you go to embed in the comments, you can change the size to a smaller one, like 350 width. Maybe this will help. If it doesn't, back to the drawing board. And no worries if you don't want to or don't remember - no big! :D

First, where I am located. The map is from the NHC's interactive Isaac path map. The black line is the projected path of Isaac's eye. The rest is self explanatory. Supposed to be hurricane strength when it goes over.

*Updated* The eye is now supposed to pass to our west, which puts us on the bad side of Isaac; the good news is Isaac is not a very strong and developed storm.

Now onto the music!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
