Don't know if we have recreational readers out there who would have an interest in this sort of thing (Cap & Susan would now that I know where they live) but the master author of Florida novels, John D. MacDonald wrote a book called "Condominium" some while back. It would make great reading on those long nights spent tending the Q fires. It’s educational, scary and prophetic. Read this and you’ll never think twice when the evac order comes down. Available in paper back or you can borrow mine. “It’s just a matter of time.

Good friend of mine was the postmaster in Elmira.
Yes Elmira! Let's exchange Elmiraisms. What was the Postmasters name? You say "Spiedies." Would I know them by a different name Susan?

My family and I just got home from Santa Rosa Florida. I have never seen traffic as bad before in my life. People in lines to get gas everywhere. Never did get to go deep sea fishing thanks to Cindy and Dennis and my 11 yr old boy was down about that for days. Oh but the beer flowed like a river and the seafood was awesome. BBQ joints cant compare to my cooking and Im never pleased with them so I just ate all the sea bugs I could stand.

I hope everyone down south does OK during this disaster.

I know they have a job to do why do these media types insist on putting themselves at so much risk when covering these major storms? I'm scared to death for these kids.

Hurricanes are the 'weather people's' SuperBowl.

I'm going to disagree with many of you. The Weather Channel people are not doing the people of Florida any service at all. Not once did they mention that the reason damage from Dennis was minimal was that it was moving to fast.

Try to remember that they are a commercial enterprise driven by ratings and the ability to sell commercial time. They tell everybody that they shouldn't be out on the street but where do they have their idiot reporters? On the street.

They tell you what's going on in a hurricane in the Gulf from their cozy studio's in Atlanta. They're first concern is not anyone's safety, it is to make their programming as dramatic as they possibly can so you watch and consequently for their corporate ownership to make money.

Try National Hurricane Cneter in Miami for more realistic, accurate coverage.

I really have to agree with Bruce B and Susan Z.

I guess I should remind myself that even TWC (much as I like some of those kids) is a commercial driven enterprise with their eye on ratings and commercial revenue. Good point Bruce.

And yes Susan, as far as alternatives are concerned the NHC and Weatherunderground.com (a new find for me) are the best sources of information and forecast.

Can you believe we have another one cooking in the Atlantic? Looks to be on the same track as Denny...maybe a bit more north than west. Can you say "already monotonous" boys and girls?
