Florida hurricane...

How're all you Floridians doing? Is tomorrow the big day? Man, I don't envy any of you poor souls in the line of fire! My best wishes for a change of storm direction (as in out to sea), and I wish you all the best!!

Re: Florida hurricane...

Good luck Nupe. I was able to fly my parents out of Orlando airport just before it closed. The storm is supposed to track right over Vero Beach where they live. Looks like I'll be flying down there next week to help them clean up.

Re: Florida hurricane...

I am in Melbourne and the winds are unbelievable right now. We about to get hit another band of rain.

Man I hate this......


Also, several houses down have all ready lost power this morning. I am sure it is only a matter of time before we do.

Re: Florida hurricane...

I've been checking the National Hurricane Center for the latest info. I read that Frances is as big as the state of Texas.
