Ho-hum... I'm getting a little tired of this hurricane sh*t. :(

that's amazing...

I know it's a frightening thing...but you see, that won't ever (lucky!) happen down here in Italy!

I hope everything comes out alright for you Eric. I talked to a couple of people who are still trying to recover from the last one. Lets just hope that this one does no major damage and everyone comes out alright.

Been thinking about you Eric, and a couple of other friends in the Tampa area. Hope you are all safe and, I guess this is futile.....stay dry.

Woo-hoo! What FUN! Image Here's my current local radar... I live right above where the "a" is in "Tampa" on this map:

Image

I'll be in the worst of it in the next hour. So far, it hasn't been too too bad. I have some downed tree branches (small ones) and other debris in my yard, but that's about it. If I can get through this with no other problems, I'll be very happy.

Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts, folks. I'll keep ya' updated.

Toodles for now...

Well... can't say it was fun. However, the worst is over. My only damage was a few small tree branches and a blizzard of leaves in my yard. I'm happy.

Mr. Ivan... PLEASE go pick on someone else. Florida has had enough this year, thanks. :(

Toodles...

Eric, Glad your area came through Frances in fairly good shape......we are all praying that Ivan goes somewhere else too.

Yeah, Ivan is a monster. It is officially the most powerful hurricane to EVER form that far south in the Atlantic in the history of meteorological records. And it's coming this way... Image

Without trying to show my ignorance, is this a "normal" year for hurricanes, or something unusual?

Pretty much normal... it's just not normal for them to ALL hit Florida. Image

All part of my evil plan. You see, I have hidden a giat magnet under Florida to draw all hurricanes there. And this time Austin Powers will not be able to stop me!
