Please don't take any chances.  Pack yourselves a nice survival kit and stay in touch.  Praying you won't have to use it, though.

Prayers and ((((((hugs))))),

I simply can't believe what I'm reading here.  I have been out of touch for days with the reality of a major move and not had the t.v., radio, or this computer on.  When I finally get it connected, I see here comes yet another one?  Good grief!  Well, I can think of worse things than taking cover in that field about now Sharon. You all have had a way too stressful hurricane season that has taken a round out of far too many.  Please plan ahead and stay safe won't you all?  All I can do is send you down  my .

I am hoping it lessens its strength...I dislike the fear the media puts into every report ...though I am sure it is necessary to get people to move out of the storm area .

Stay safe...my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

No one in my area seems to be evacuating. I'm staying with my daughter but? I have to go into work at noon today for a few hours..how odd is that?

Stay safe and let's hope this is the last one this year!

I talked to this guy in a bar in Crowley--lucky me, I ran into an engineer! (I swear my life works that way.)

He told me it was the illusion of safety that got people killed.

YOU STAY SAFE.

I don't care if it's a category .2!

All of you there in Florida, please stay safe. And, check in as soon as you can to let us know you are alright.

I guess my idea of going to Cancun in a couple of years is permanently tabled, not to mention visiting Florida. It's hard to believe Wilma could outdo Katrina, but it's not a lovely lady you've ordered those NOT welcome shingles for, so I hope you'll consider tonight the night to leave for a vacation elsewhere if you can. And if you can't, I'll be at work tonight thinking of you, hoping your candles stay dry.
And a possible nightmare named Alpha is right behind Wilma, so is anyone wanting to visit the west coast for Halloween?????

Kacy ~ I just read your reply and you mentioned that there is an Alpha brewing! Better to be named Alpha than Omega!

I just heard on the news that Wilma is beginning to strengthen and may become a category three at landfall with storm surges up to 17 feet in some areas.

The good news is that it is expected to not be a prolonged event.

Love & Protection to all in her path!

They're talking now of a superstorm, where Wilma and another may meet...

damn it, you kids...

what the heck potion have you all been brewing?  

Ok, only the above with the exception of the last two lines, was true.

Please, please...if you have somewhere to go?

Don't wait.

and take your loved ones with you.

ALL of us...need a break from southern weather.  I think this winter?  We notherners are going to need a place southernly [I think its going to snow - hard!]...so while you can, folks, pick a place to reside elsewhere for awhile, so that when we DO decide to come visit?  We'll know where to find you!

Balls-of-Deer ~

Buck of course not! Well, perhaps the first part of that statement is correct, but I would venture to say the last part is not!

BTW I love a Deer One with a sense of humour! You are adorable! Flirty


Linda
P.S. Perhaps your surge might be less than the 17 feet, but I would venture to say that yours must still be rather formidable. Flirty 2

P.P.S. Keep safe from Wilma! Perhaps if you showed her your surge, she might veer off over the Atlantic!

All joking aside, I truly hope you and yours ~ and everybody else ~ will be safe from harm. Prayers are on the rise from this naughty "angel".

Thank you, Angel....yes, that was a little gallows humor on my part.

The bad news is the hurricane is aimed at me. The good news is that the tv station said they would suspend hurricane arrival coverage when Desperate Housewives comes on at 9....it's a wonderful life

Mike, that is BAD news! But knowing you, you could manage to withstand a direct hit from an irate woman ~ but please don't try it!

I hope that you and Fran plan to vacate the area! Don't go pulling any of that macho stuff ~ and remember there are bugs to be found elsewhere. Roach

The only hurricane that I weathered was when I was 5 years old and I was blown away by the intensity of it! ~ Literally! I landed in Kansas! But that's another story.

Be smart! Keep safe! ~ and my prayers are with you!


Linda

Good grief! I just have gotten back online and here I come back and find you all waiting for another storm? I haven't even had time to see the news to be honest, but know enough from the last one, that I will sure be praying for you all down there.  Think smart and stay safe please all you wonderful Florida folks.
