>two half gallons of hurricane prep crown<

Hmmm...they never told us to put this in *our* hurricane preparedness kit. I did, however, have a full bottle of Xanax. They came in quite handy.

Frank, please at least pull a mattress into your safe room. My elderly parents promised me last night they were evacuating to Texas and instead went to Ocean Springs this morning. I am worried sick for all of you.

Justin... exactly... hell I bet I have as much experience with hurricanes as most, but this one has been gut wrenching to say the least.... I got at best another two hours to monitor before it gets to hazardous to leave... I'm OK and I'm NOT going to do anything stupid... ... trust me gang I think I know what I'm doing and I'm taking this extremely serious...

your posts have been great, hope I can repay you all in the future with the NEXT one... hehe....

>>> Frank............listen to Phil.........we would hate to see anything happen to you.

LOL...Frank's been through Camille...nothin' I say is making him leave...he'll make that reasoned judgment when the time comes. He's got some big stones that is for sure!

Here's hoping you can pop the crown SOONER than later...

thanks Phil, yea stones might be big but the pucker factor is WAY UP right now...and special thanks to Mike for keeping the site up and running during this most critical time....

you just don't realize how much everyone posts mean...

Jav, thanks for the heads up on the curfew.... gives me just a little more time to monitor...

bottom line, stays due north, I'll be Ok... any drift to the west, I'm a gone pecan....

redbird, honestly, I am not worried about the surge, I'm much more worried about tree damage,causing structural degradation of the house during the high wind event... 20 feet is rather high for Biloxi
