Talking Real men ain't scared of no stinkin' weather...

When it gets closer, Johnny Scissorhandz and I are going to the canyon for tuna!

FYI...after getting on the HurricaneTracker site, drag the cursor over the storm and projected path for more specific info...
It's all probabilities and a giant educated crap shoot...
The storm is in charge although the steering currents will help it decide where it decides to go...
So John, be sure to pack a clean/dry outfit for when we get plucked by the Coast Guard...the cameras will be running!

Thumbs up

That's one of the coolest weather sites I've seen. Been following the storm, looks like the Dirty South isn't going to get her cleaning once again. Were getting pretty good at dodging bullets this year.

Maybe they should tie the detainees to a few palm trees at Gitmo just before the storm strikes, and see how many are left afterwards.....that wouldn't be considered prisoner abuse, would it?

I have a good friend that recently moved to Port St. Lucie. Spoke to him last night. Looks like he is in it's path. Let's hope that the devastation in Florida is minimal.

I'm concerned with any debris that is still laying around from Hurricane Charlie. With Frances coming through, that stuff could become airborne projectiles.
