    The primary models keep zeroing in more and more on S.E. FL.

    Not liking this one bit.

    please do not take this question seriously or wrong, but

    If they drained the Atlantic Ocean, would it stop Hurricanes?

    I feel a little uneasy about this one as well.

    Yep, but I think the Volcanic eruptions of the coast of Florida would really put a damper on my ability to deep sea fish.

    On the other hand, I could take up cycling and bicycle to England.

    Shutters going up tomorrow. Wife is packing bag tonight. Her and the kids will leave if necessary on Sunday night or Monday AM once have a better indication of what this thing is doing and how strong it will be. Right now, I am not liking it one bit.

    I'm buying plywood for the hurricane house and installing my hurricane panels on the building today. :( The newest report has it going abit south of the previous report, with the center target now painted right on Miami.

    It's hard not to look at the darn thing, although I know better. I had contracted to have some cracked roof tile replaced, maybe now it might become an insurance issue....:eek2:

    If your insurance company is like mine was after Hurricane Jeanne, you won't get YOUR money for 8 months. My insurance company was manned by a bunch of theives and crooks.

    Well the 8AM models look more promising for SE Fl. Although the darn thing is still 5 days out, so it could change 20 more times before it actually makes landfall.

    With trends moving away from me, I may hold off a day or two before doing the panel and plywood thing. I may still get the panels up on my building, but hold off on buying plywood until further projections are out.
