The traffic over here was bumper to bumper by five yesterday afternoon. The shelteres are already filling up fast this morning. At least it looks like people are taking this one seriously. Here on the west coast of FL we had gotten kind of complacent, but Charlie was a real wake up call, for everyone. The way that storm didn't go where it was predicted was a wake up call for everyone.

Don't take chances and be careful. Best of luck to everyone.

Right now we look like we're in pretty good shape, we might see some 50/maybe 60 mph winds but unless it changes course drastically, we should be okay.

We have a spare bedroom if an OSO'er needs a place to stay, but we do have animals. 4 dogs, 4 cats, 2 birds, and a psyco killer bunny rabbit. But you are welcome if you need a place to hole up. Russ

It looks like we will be completely spared, IF the forecast track is correct.

Just got back in at 4am. Hauled azz down on Wed., grabbed the 'Gun and headed out Thurs. morning after I helped my parents.

They are buckeled up and riding it out in Deerfield Beach. They should be okay.

It took me 19 HOURS(thats right19) to get from home to Atl. It only took 7;45 to get there wed.

I think all 2.5 millions evacuees werein front of me on the highway.

The upside is I get to tear up Lanier this wknd. in the boat.

Well if this stays true, we're out of the woods too. Just above Venice, south of Sarasota.

As always, the big IF......



We had fish, gave them to our neighbor's little girl. She loves them. Saves us about 65 cents a week.

I am at my stables out by Weston, west Ft Lauderdale. We are now getting huge gust of winds here. My house is all closed up and safe so we are riding out the storm in the guest house at the barn. We have 40 horses to try to keep safe. made ID tags for all. The barn is not the best, so I hope they all survive ok. have the laptop so I will keep reporting as things happen. Pray for the best!

Palm Beach just got a pretty good feeder band-had gusts up to 64mph. We might get a little bit a the weaker north end of that band up here in St. Lucie and minute. They're saying the next one is due in about an hour.
