Topic: I Hate Hurricanes [period]


Hurricanes. Tropical Storms. EW!

I know there are 3 people on this forum at least that have been somewhat effected by the hurricanes.

I know that H. Alex came through and dumped a bunch of rain at the very end of July. Ealier last week, TS Bonnie came through and hand us on Flood watches and warnings. The clouds never cleared from that, but were pushed away by H. Charleys clouds, dumping more rain.

Now there is a Hurricane... Danielle? and a TS Earl? or do I have those mixed up Tim?

Who has suffered from the wrath of Hurricanes?

By the way, pray for the folks who were in Charley's path and got it bad. They need it.

Ive never been blasted like those poor people in Florida, but I have seen bad ones in the past in the Outer Banks and up here in Maryland. Sometimes the awe we have of nature can almost make us forget how destructive it can still be.

Charley was kinda funny. Usually our outter banks get CREAMED (once we had an inlet relocated lol) but this time I think it cut through the mid Costal Plains. Suprisingly, we didn't really get wind, and we got more rain from Bonnie then Charley. As usual, I shrugged, said [consarn] the rain and got ready to be called out if they needed me.


Oh yeah, I SAW THE SUN TODAY! FIRST TIME IN 2 WEEKS! HECK YEAH BABY!

Last year Maryland got hit preety hard by one, we ended up calling in the National Gaurd and all and getting government aid. Of course it's nothing up here when you consider what happnes in Florida.

One of my friends lives in South Ft. Myers and she said North Ft. Myers is a completely different world. Her work was destroyed. The earliest they will be going back to school is Thursday, and thats the earliest many are getting power back.

Wow, I think Earl was reduced to a Tropical Depression (or Wave as the said on CAPNC). Good stuff... But Hurricane Danielle is still out there, but supposed to hit north... But hey, we still 1 1/2 months of Hurricane season left guys....

And earthquakes! And it seems to me that all regions have their problems. Between hurricanes on the East Coast and earthquakes on the West Coast, there are tornadoes in the Midwest, Canadians on the North Border and Mexicans on the South Border

Hurricanes bring their share of tornadoes... believe me!
