Alberto almost a hurricane

Unexpectedly, it has strengthened up to 70 mph. Heading toward the gulf
coast of Fla, and is expected to move up to the SC coast by Wed.
I know we have several Fla members of the board here. Maybe it gets to
Cat 1 strength, maybe not. Batten down the hatches.

Les was telling me about that this morning on the phone. They were talking about how the weather might be where they are working this week. I think he said the name of the town is Conroy? They were a bit concerned if it picks up strength before it hits South Carolina.

Conway? That's basically west Myrtle Beach. No biggie...it'll break up as it crosses Fla, and if it hits here, it'll just be a rain event.

50 percent? That's for auto mechanics. Weather guys get paid big bucks to be right about 20 percent of the time.

So far just a lil rain here. It looks like it is going through North Florida from here then up the seaboard. We did need the rain here sooooo it is not a terrible thing. The season is still young. 8-[

I loved my 20 years in Orlando but MAN, am I glad we got out of there when we did. We went through several TS's and a couple minimal hurricanes during my stay but I was always worried about the big one(s). Remember Floyd?? That's the one that kicked me in the ass to get the hell out! Y'all take care down there!!

Yep, you're right Cappy. They're in Conway. He called me about 8:45 last night on the cell and the reception was horrible. He said it was pouring rain and windy so we only talked a couple of minutes and he'll be calling me sometime today.
