TS Arlene... TS Cindy... and TS Dennis on deck
You gotta love life on the gulf coast.
Its Hurricane Dennis now
I think the forcast is calling for some rain and maybe some wind ....????!!!!
As of 11:00 edt Hurricane Dennis = Cat 2 w/ 105 mph winds (125 gusts). It's only going to get strong in the warm gulf waters, I think this one is gonna leave a mark.
It's still a long way out and anything could happen but right now 3 out of 5 computer models on a local weather site show a direct hit for P'cola.
DAMN ! We still are recouping from the a$$ woopin that Ivan left last year .
Ahhhh , the joys of living on the coast ........
They said gas prices is going up 7 cents for the hurricane and another 10 cents for the terrorist attack in London Also all the hotels are booked up as far as Montgomery
Welp, it sounds like we aren't running from it then.
Hang on folks, the ride only gets bumper from this point on.
I put this out in the Lounge, but I'm gonna say it again....
....I'm really starting to hate living here. I pray Dennis goes elsewhere - I'm still not done fixing shiat from Ivan last year, and I'm only just now starting to get spare money for the trucks again. If I take on more damage again, I'm gonna faawking !!SCREAM!! and possibly go postal. I just hope and pray this strom either doesn't amount to much more then a soft Cat. 1, or it goes somewhere else....the thought if having to go through all the bullshiat of the power being out for 8 days, the insurance jerking me around, the contractors flooding the town and stealing your stuff - well, the thought just makes me feel sick. I'm tired of this crap.
Mother Nature is a biatch. Faawk her.
I really hate living here now.
Well , it's official that we are screwed !!!! That guy from the Weather Channel ( Jim Cantori ) is at Pensacola Beach and he only shows up at the places where the trouble and action is going to be at .........
Better plan on Dennis heading this way and get ready for another beating - but I still love living here !
Jim Cantori ain't he da man! That guys cool. Hang on down there guys. My old man is in FL working. I'll just sit up here in SC and count the funnel clouds that drop from the east side of the storm. On another note my peppers and and maters could use a good rain.
If you all need a place to go, let me know and I can get you one up around the Montgomery area. hate to see people stay if they don't want to.
Looks like P'cola it is. Hurricane season really sucks. I am lucky to be on the fringe ofthe action. We are far enough inshore to be out of harm's way most of the time.
If Dennis takes a dump on you guys and you need anything (supplies or stuff) that you can't get there, I may be able to make a run down. we rarely see shortages (or super high prices) here.
That's good to know I already saw diesel for 2.57 this morning. Some stations are already out of gas here in P-cola. If it is not bolted down strap it down and hold on.
I know from being close that things like wood, supplies, batteries and fuel become scarce quick. Or become very, very expensive.
This is from another board
God is punishing you and Tom for not building your junk!!!
Save the rest of us, and build that ****!!!!!!!!!
If we were smart we would have already got of out a$$e$ and built them just so we could be able to drive around after the storms.
I didn't realize that the Lord was that serious about wheeling .......
I was just thinking about how nice it would be to drive a fully capable Blazer instead of a truck that I don't want scratched after the hurricane.
I supose if it would save the good folks thta live along the cost line I could get a little work done on the Blazer .
I fixen to go out and fill up all the spare fuel tanks and top off the truck before all the local fuel supply is gone.
Jim Cantore is still here so I guess it is time to get ready for a little wind and rain.
