Re: News updates


I almost fell out of my chair when I read that the hurricane force winds extend out 70 miles!!! So would that be 140 miles from the center or what? That's almost double what it was at 5pm.
Okay, I might make some people here mad, but those people that are staying on the barrier islands are idiots. This storm is NOT Frances, for crying out loud. Yes, same track (almost) but a totally different monster. Not to mention the fact that she's barreling along at a good clip..which could mean she could be here sooner than expected.
I'm afraid that this will cause a sad amount of lost lives...all because they "don't want to go through this again." Who in their right mind WOULD?
And I wouldn't be surprised if Jeanne pulls a Charley on us at the last minute...which, in fact, looks exactly like what she's trying to do.

No, 140 miles ACROSS the center, not from the center.... Colleen, go to bed...you need some sleep. I'm gonna have to get my beuty rest here shortely also
