Latest projections have Michelle missing Florida...which with 135 mph sustained winds is a good thing.

Stick your head out the window of your car driving at 70 mph, then double that and imagine that kind of wind having 5 hours or more to work on your house....heh, yep...glad I have shutters and a hurricane proofed safe-room.

LOL, welcome to Florida cap.

-- Uncle Deedah (unkeeD@yahoo.com), November 03, 2001.

I thought the shutters were supposed to keep the hurricane from coming anywhere near you. Yknow, cause you're prepared and all. =)

Hey cap, is this your first hurricane? Let us know how much fun youre having.

Yep, I guess I'm losing my hurricane cherry, though it doesn't look like we'll be gettin' much of the heavy stuff over here on the cape.But if it had been a biggie, I suspect I would have boarded up the house, stocked up on beer and rode it out.It ain't like I have a job to report to right now, so let the good times roll, I reckon.

Thanks Unk, if it gets too wild over there come on over.ya always gots a spare bunker if ya need it.

Fl Keys are now being evacuated. Please be safe capn, unk, deano. xoxoxo

-- (cin@cin.cin), November 04, 2001.

I didn't know you'd made it down there, capn. You guys be safe.

We were supposed to be at a friend's wedding in Key West today. Fortunately we didn't have to be evacuated, but I hope she's doing okay. Keep your fingers crossed for the Conch Republic.
