    All you Floridians!!!

    Hang in there and check back in... let us know how you're doing when you get the opportunity (and electricity to do so!).

    We're thinking of you in the dry states!

    Opelika/Auburn is just starting to get some bands of wind and rain. We're about 200 miles from the beach and just to the east of the projected path. We'll likely get winds gusting > 50 mph and several inches of rain. Much of the dead wood in the tree tops got knocked out by Hurricane Florence last week as the eye of that one passed over us. I don't think we'll see much more than light flooding in some low lying areas and maybe breif power outages.

    Schools are closed, my workplace is closed tomorrow. I have the whole day free. Doncha know I'll be itching to get in a ride!

    Kofee..I read next years Fla. citrus crop is ruined..Marketers are already scouting California and Arizona to empty our trees of crop..Illinois a dry state; how about here.
    The Colorado is drying up..If only we could channel some of that excess energy out of the storm along with the excess rain, the Nation's citrus crop would be the better for it.

    Where I am on the West Coast we had barely a rain drop all day. I'm about an hour south of Tampa Bay and we were barely affected by Ivan. Can't say the same about Frances and Charley.

    I pray all those in Ivan's path are safe!

    Rainman is in New Orleans. I was thinking about him (I'm sure he would have evacuated if necessary,) but New Orleans seems to be spared the brunt of Ivan's teeth.
    No worries

    Somehow we still have power, even though 80% of Opelika is without power right now. Two tornadoes have been spotted within 15 miles of where I live. But the worst is about over for us. I pray those north of here come through ok.

    A2, not likely.

    Did you see the cnn today morning? like 40 cm of water, ropes to cross streets, zoo destroyed, alligators and animals running amok. However, I wish the best for them(everything and everyone). Let's hope divine intervention is real.

    We have a good friend who just transferred to manage the Pensacola Golf course. He called the other night. The storm was something else. They are on the ocean and there are coke machines, A/C's, hot water heaters on the golf course. They think the only place they could of come is from across the bay. The course will have to be closed 6 months-1 year for repairs. We are hoping he is not out of a job..
