IKE TO WHIRL THRU INDY
Rarely does Indy get a chance to feel the residual effects of a hurricane

GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND. A hurricane's coming! A hurricane's coming! Or, what was a hurricane. Ike's remnants are whirling their way toward Indy. Weather forecasters tell us to expect its winds and rain on Sunday afternoon. No 100-mph winds, we'll be lucky to see much over 3o mph. Still, we'll be part of an epic. I started watching Ike before it was named, right after it started spinning just off the west African coast. I looked at satellite photos each day as it built steam in the western Atlantic, clawed it's way across Cuba, ripped into Galveston, and howled through Houston. No longer a cloud formation on satellite views or clips on CNN, Ike will actually pass over us. I like the connection.
