lol ! If you've lived in Fla long enough you don't even watch the weather channel till its AT LEAST a Cat 3 and u might get a direct hit... Its simply grey out right now, barely breezy and some drizzle once in a while. It'd be a MAJOR waste to ever flee for a tropical storm, cat 1 or low cat 2 hurricane..I mean would u flee from a thunderstorm.. thats esentially all it is..

Bonnie doesn't look like any kind of big deal. I think the only concern is what could potentially happen with the oil disaster in the gulf, if it intensifies to a Cat 1, and even that is probably minimal.

Right now, the storm is not even worth dumping the lawn chairs in the pool over.

Bonnie is nothing, anyone who evacuates or does anything to protect their home is wasting time and money. The local weather ppl in Orlando were hoping it would have had a more northern track because we really needed the rain. We haven't had one of our usual afternoon thunderstorms in over a week, its been very dry. But Tropical storms are literally nothing besides some rain and light wind, our afternoon thunderstorms are much more intense.

Even though Collier had a Tropical Storm Warning, we barely even had any rain at all. A total big nothing. I was really looking forward to rain and wind. Oh well, at least the blazing sun wasn't out all day,

I thought they only named hurricanes not tropical depressions.

They don't name tropical depressions. they name tropical storms and hurricanes.

This was the biggest none tropical storm I have ever been through. And I have been through a few storms. We had worse wind last week with the low or high pressure sitting off the coast than with this storm. The rain was nothing compared to our usual afternoon thunderstorms.
