Here We Go Again

Pretty much the entire state of Florida lies within the cone of probability of the unpredictable Tropical Storm Ernesto.

We have made our hurricane preparations.

All we can do now is wait and hope Ernesto dissipates.

At least the hurricane will put out the grass fires!

Seriously, all the best to you and yours!

Thanks. We're going to lie low & hope the mountainous Cuban terain runs enough interference to wear Ernesto down.

Gar, thats bad luck. Florida is like a hurricane magnet. Mabee it's time to invest in a shrink-ray to take care of the hurricanes. I can't believe how often hurricanes hit Florida. How do you deal with the hurricanes? Lay low, or high tail it outta there?

aw take good care Cube..why dontcha move up North where we are then?

senior: Maybe President Bush will loan us his weather machine ;-)

Seriously, we have supplies and several generators, and we board up the windows if needed. We evaluate the danger and would leave if a big storm was headed our way.

woman: Thanks, I'll try to stay safe. I lived in NY for 7 years and got my fill of the cold and snow.

I always feel sorry for the news weather people when tropical storms/possible hurricanes are in play.
The path and intensity of these storms are difficult to predict even with all that fancy equipment.
The weather guys have to tell you about the worst possibilities knowing that they very well may not come to be. I think when storms fizzle out, it makes people let their guard down when the next one comes.
It seems from what I've heard that Floridians have learned their lessons well and are NOT taking chances.
I hope Ernesto fizzles and causes no more harm.

j.d.: we always prepare for the worst and then celebrate when it fizzles out ;-)

jen: thank you!
