ElaineH,

I know what you mean. I've been in St. Pete for 28 years, and the only thing that comes close was Elena (check out this track for all those who think they are in the clear http://www.wunderground.com/hurricane/at198505.asp ). It has just been one right after the other. I'll be glad when this season is over.

Elena was the year before I arrived, but I heard she was one crazy storm.

I just saw Max Mayfield from the NHC on Sheppard Smith and he said this storm could most definetly make landfall as a Cat 4.

I have lived in the Tampa area for 17 years and never been so uneasy during the hurricane season. Everyone is stressed from watching the weather every weekend and we have lost a lot of productivity and business in the services industry. I still prefer it to the cold..I just have to ride this season out.

BTW...East of Tampa it is breezy, but dry.




Elaine,
I live in Wekiva, an unincorporated area of Seminole county just north of Orlando. I copy your sentiments. It's like people are walking dead around here - going through the motions of their daily work lives and personal lives. A lot of houses are still boarded up and people are saying that they are really depressed. There is debris stacked up on the sides of the streets everywhere (still). Gasoline is in short supply here (supplies must be going to the panhandle region). I work and talk to a lot of people around the country every day and everyone is being really supportive (except for my own company). They, instead, kind of go through the motions of caring and hoping they don't get sued for making the wrong mandate on staying open.

I wouldn't say that, it has a lot of dry air to contend with but that doesn't seem to be stopping it. Who knows, I'm saying it will make landfall by Mobile as a hurricane, after it's a hurricane I say forgetaboutit and get out of there!

Florida interactive map
This has a map (you'll need to download the plug-in first. If you right-click on the map, the pop-up menu shows "view....Distances" You can left click one point, and then another it will show you exact distances.

Hoping that St. George Island won't suffer too much; I think we are staying put. Unless there is a shift eastward...

Orlando Dan,

Totally different situation but a fair comparison: the days and weeks after 9/11 up here. For the first couple weeks everyone was an American..a New Yorker...friends helping friends...then the "walking dead" phase. For many, that was it, but for thousands, especially those more directly involved than I, and then a serious need for counseling and support.

I would imagine it will be no different for a number of folks when all is said and done...if you feel you need to seek help, it is wise to do so...I hate to bring this up at a time like this, but these are life-altering experiences. Lots of bouts with alcoholism & drugs...par for the course actually, as that would be expected when one goes through a major catastrophe....if anyone needs a little "therapy" (ie, PM me if you need to vent/emote when all is said and done), I'll reply to everyone and do what I can...I've never seen a season like this one and it's only mid-way thru it.

God bless...

Yeah, Elena made a sharp right turn and just sat there spinning faster and faster just getting stonger and bigger for what seemed like forever, then did a 180 and went the other way. It was scary. That's why I never feel safe until these storms are inland. No one is safe as long as the bully is on the playground.

I was looking at the track of hurricane Betsy back in the 50's or 60's I don't remember...anyhow that thing got up about even with Jacksonville, FL and did a complete turn around then headed back in the vicinity of Miami. Kinda blows the theory of you're not safe til it's north of your latitude even. I know thats rare but still. i agree ..."you're not safe til the bully has left the playground".

Sorry, you're asking the wrong person but if there is a CAT 4 hurricane and it's only about 500 miles away from the base of the Hurricane Hunters, I'm sure you'll be getting plently of info very soon.
