We all had to evacuate a number of years ago when Floyd came by. Traffic was insane due to the fact that almost everyone left home at 12 noon and tried to get onto the same highway.

Depending on the projected strength of the storm, I may or may not stay. The trouble with staying is the fact that we may not have electricity for days.

Went through that twice when I lived in FL. Quite entertaining, that was.

I'm an Oke swamp rat! Have paddled the canoe trails and camped on the platforms many times! Fall is normally low water time in the swamp, so a good tropical storm will keep the canoe trails open longer.
As for Hanna - this morning's track has her steering more into SC with my area now being targeted for the right upper quadrant. People aren't freaking out yet, but we'll be getting our water jugs out of the attic tonight just in case.

Everyone on the east coast needs to take another look. The 11 AM has her hitting around Jacksonville and following the coast up to the South Carolina. Current track has her dissecting NC and moving on to jump water on all of New England.

LOL GloryB! My daughter can't do anything until tomorrow. They are headed home now and she will take my granddaughter into the dentist tomorrow. Thank you for asking.

Okay, back to Hanna guys!

I had heard on the WEather channel today that officals in Florida and South Carolina at least certains parts are telling people to get ready. Do you think that the areas where hanna is going the state officals will be more pushing people to leave because of the trial and error with Katrinia and the better job they did this time. Not wanting to look less than what they did do you think they may go over board. Also on another thread someone said that with Floyd it was a mess.

Looks like we are going to get at least some rain out of Hanna up here. An inland storm, that is "good". Meaning it wouldn't be as bad here right on the water. Kind of looks like Ike may come up the coast too? Feast or famine! Poor Florida.

FL is tough and can take it. 'o4 took out most of the problem trees. Just keep your blizzards up there and we will be fine. Thanks for the caring thoughts. Much appreciated.
