Maybe I just freak out too easily but there are 3 storms out there that could very well hit our coast... I don't understand how anyone could live down here let alone want to move here! I just don't understand.. Is anyone else freaking out about these storms??

I'm definitely not freaking out. I'm very calm right now, browsing the City-Data forums, and am having a nice drink.

Oh, and I could care less about the storm. You must be new to Florida.

When it is time to act I will act. We keep plenty of water in the house so we don't have to scrable for it when a storm approaches. I am concerned but freaking out doesnt change anything, it just adds stress.

Mildly concerned, but I'm not going to lose sleep over it. Just going to keep an eye on it, and act accordingly when necessary.

My man and I left PA to protect our condo in South Florida before Wilma , recorded as the most intense hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin - Cat 5 !!!
Well, we sat in the living room, my man fell asleep and I watched !!! The aftermath was a pain, no power for almost two weeks !! But, having done both, I would take a hurricane before I would take a major snowstorm up north. So, don't freak out !!
