Dean is the one we need to worry about.....it has plenty of time and space to build up to a serious hurricane.

Sweet, for me that is. 1 full week of 100+ degree heat sucks. I went out on the lake for the first time in 2 months last weekend. It was 102 and the lake was like swimming in a hot tub. I guess it didn't take much to warm up all the floodwater.

BY U BOY - thats sweet - I'd take full advantage of having the oppurtunity to go "check on" your budy's boat. Make sure and take the lady friend...................I don't know how you are with your friends, but I'd leave him a nice little suprise if you know what I mean.

LOL he has been my best friend for 16 years now. There is not much i could do that would surprise him. Since i just got engaged today we may have to have a blessing of the fleet on the boat for him.

In Mobile right now it is no wind no clouds no rain and lots of sun and even more heat. Temp said 102 at 5pm.
Will be hot and dry all weekend in Destin.

I'm hoping that thing don't spin up and get north and nasty. I'm in S. Houston for the next two weeks and would rather not deal with it. Last time that I was down here when one was spinning up, I made it out and back to Cincy the day before Katrina raised hell!
