  • Anyone near the hurricane?

    If so, batten down the hatches. I am in far Northeast Florida and we have received 2 inches of rain from it already. It's supposed go to Louisiana and it just took a tiny turn eastward. I hate these things!

    I love hurricanes. I just wish they weren't so deadly. I remember back in 84 or 85 we got Hurrican Gloria here on Long Island. THAT was a storm! I remember I was 11 or 12, and I was looking out the kitchen windows into my parents backyard. I remember seeing my father outside during the peak of the storm trying to secure our barbeque down. This thing must've weighed an easy 75 to 100LBS, and I remember this huge gust of wind shaking our entire house and just taking that barbeque into the air and throwing it a good 1000' into their pool. My father was actually holding onto one of the posts securing the deck into the ground, and the wind was blowing so hard, he was in the air horizontally. That was one wicked storm. Unfortunately, we haven't gotten anymore real storms since then.

    To anyone in the path of these things, be careful. They're exciting, yes, but they're no joke. Good luck, Mitzi.

      Sorta. I'm in central/northern Virginia. The thing is, Isidore is supposed to come through places like Tennessee and the Appalachians somewhat, Tropical Strom Lili is supposed to come up through Cuba and then turn towards Florida and or the Carolinas, and Tropical Storm Kyle is coming back towards the eastern coast.

      We're surrounded!!!!! [Eek!]
      If we're not supposed to eat animals, why are they made out of meat?

          Hurricanes...the one thing that I don't like about possibly moving to a coastal area of Florida.

          Is homeowner's insurance ungodly expensive down there, Mitzi?

            We're 150 or so miles inland but would be one of the evacuation points for those fleeing the Galveston/Houston/Beaumont area. We had an Emergency Management meeting today & received an all's clear for now. My son in New Orleans will not be so lucky. His Coast Guard unit will be in the thick of things. He's gone through several before having lived in Florida & was in a whopper of a typhoon in Guam. Still, these things are nothing to take lightly. Lili will probably track off the East Coast of Florida after she makes it through Cuba. Everyone take care!
