Hurricane Dennis now a Cat 4

winds up to 105 mph. Expected to be a Cat 3 before landfall, could be Florida or Alabama......good luck to all our q'ers in those areas.

If that thing comes ashore near Gulf Shores, AL I don't know what those people are going to do, they haven't recovered from Ivan yet from last season. Keep an eye out everyone.

Son Greg is right of course. I wouldn't trade it for anything...except Saratoga Springs. You mention Gulf Shores. There are many communities from Punta Gorda to Arcadia that are further behind than Gulf Shores. Many communities no one ever heard got creamed by Charlie, Francis and Jean last year and have 1000's of people living in FEMA homes still...and RV's and cars. They can't stay there if another one comes ashore and they have no place to go except the shelters if one does. And of course if it does miss us it hits somewhere else which makes you happy and concerned at once. A Real emotional roll-a-coaster this hurricane stuff. Better go gas up the generator. Looks like we're fixn' for a blow.

:beach: For now...

Airboss,

I didn't mean to upset you by mentioning Gulf Shores, I mention it because I vacation there every year and I'm familiar with the conditions there. I am aware that other cities are hurting as well, I wasn't implying that Gulf Shores was thonly victims.

I could have mentioned 20 cities and then someone would have gotten mad that I left another one off the list. All the people of Florida and the Gulf Coast in general suffered last year, I sincerely hope they have it easier this year.

No, no, no! Please Bruce, no offense taken. That's the problem with the printed word. We all know many folks were affected in some way from the Panhandle to the Keys. I'm sorry if I came off as an over officious sh _ _.
