Yeah, so Smokey and I are going to die this weekend. There's a category 4 hurricane headed right for central Florida. They showed the path on the weather channel today and it said "Saturday 2 PM Nemesis' aunt's house" I'll be buying a couple disposable cameras and documenting the whole thing, but you'll all have to wait until I get them developed and the power comes back on. Might have to wait until I get back to Detroit. I don't know, but dear god it's coming right for us.

When it hit Naples it was a strong 4, when it finally got to central Florida it was a weak 2/strong 1 and it was moving fast with very little rain. Frances is liquid death, and coming from the east which means 35 nautical miles separate me from the coast as opposed to the hundred or so from the west. Not to mention it's literally headed right fucking for us.

Funny Story, the hurricane's effect here is that it's pushing our weather back, so we'll have a bunch of rain from a different storm dump on us when it gets past you.

i think it's safe to say that florida has had enough hurricanes now. why can't someone send one my way instead? i'd love to sit in my house and be buffeted. in england we use bricks in our houses, fortunately, so things don't fall over quite so easily: so i think it would be fun for all the family.

Jeez, as if Charley wasn't enough, I feel so bad for oyu guys, buckle up and assume crash positions. Good Luck, I hope it weakens or something before getting to you.

Aww, that's horrible. Not another hurricane.

You folks should move to Maryland. Our state sucks, but as far as weather, we're awesomely lucky.

Anyway, good luck to you, and I hope to see you posting after all this is over without any overwhelming financial burdens, etc.

Can't wait! This one could end up hitting Tampa if I tends toward that direction, and even if it doesn't hit us we're gonna get some nasty weather. I'm better off than you people in Orlando though. Fun fun fun.

We're going to start putting up shutters tonight, but my parents have been driving me nuts all week about this hurricane. We've already stocked up on essentials like water and flashlights, and my dad is insisting on evacuating to a shelter.

It's frustrating because the National Hurricane Center doesn't want to say anything definitive like they with Charley and be wrong. I guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow to see if it makes any turns. Later this afternoon or tonight they should be issuing a hurricane watch for South Florida. Broward County (where Pixies lives) is already making plans to shut down tomorrow -- no school!

I think Frances has it in for all us Floridians seeing as how the storm is as big as the whole fucking state. I live 1 block from the beach so its safe to say that if it hits me directly, the bottom floor and maybe the second will be under some water here on the island. Good thing I live on the 3rd floor, but either way, I'm not gonna chill here. Time to head inland if it comes at me dead on. My dad's in Daytona, also about a block off the beach, but in a 1 story house. If the storm hits there, his whole house will most likely get flooded.

I'm on vacation right now, we bought boards for the windows as well as a generator and an AC unit. According to the weather channel this could be the worst hurricane on record. 24 hours of hurricane force winds, and 30 inches of rain are the predictions. This is going to fucking rock.

I just checked my school's Hurricane Preparedness website, and classes are cancelled for the rest of the week. I called my boss to find out if I still had to work or not, and I left a really fucked up message for her because she was calling me back as I left it. I hope she doesn't listen to it.

Anyway, all but three windows of my house are protected with shutters.

In terms of windspeed, it's not all that impressive, but the sheer size of it (would stretch from Miami to Orlando) is a bit frightening.

I'm actually looking forward to it.

And Zippo, what the holy hell? 145mph winds are not impressive enough for you???? That's upper category fucking 4, you do know that...right?

To be fair, it was still at 140 mph when I made that post, but you're speaking to someone who got the brunt of Hurricane Andrew, which sustained winds in excess of 165 mph.

The difference between 140mph winds and 165mph winds is negligible. Both wind speeds are powerful as fuck and very impressive. I think you're getting a tad jaded living in Hurricane Alley, Zippo.
