Don't be surprised if the cellphone doesn't work after the storm. The cell towers could be blown down. We were able to use a land line phone - you know - the old phones we used to have before they got all fancy? It still worked after Charley and it was several days before Sprint or AT&T cells were functional.

LOL basically meant use whatever one works so that we know he is still floating around the gulf safe and sound. My cell service was flaky for days after Frances............along with everything else.

This storm sure appears to be tracking similarly to Opal .... do you think it will make it as far east as P'Cola / Navarre?

I'm glad you have a mattress ready for your puppies Frank. This might sound mean but you might want to limit their food and water for now. You don't want to have to walk them in the middle of this. Take my word for it!

It needs to be upgraded to a cat6 [Re: Redbird]
      #27774 - Wed Sep 15 2004 03:52 PM

This buoy says the winds arond over 270 mph! The hurricane has a round eye. With reds all the way around. It is looking better then ever. It is amazing it is bombing if this data is right!

Buoy has probably failed , ie it's broke

The still sat pic I posted reminded me of a storm from 2003, also beginning with "I". Had that pentagram-thingy going on in the eye...that can't be good...

I saw the same star pattern inside the eye.

The ey is widening according to TWC possibly about 60 miles wide.

Thiis is scary stuff even watching it from central florida !!

faster motion.... [Re: Redbird]
      #27779 - Wed Sep 15 2004 03:55 PM

I have been pondering the faster motion as well, and I don't have solid answers, but some thoughts.
First, the sooner this thing passes Frank and everyone else, the better.
Second, it does look to be geting better organized, so it would be nice to get it away from the warm Gulf faster.
Third, I am wondering if this will affect if/when it gets stuck. I need to look closer at other sat pics, but there is a stronger steering current than expected that is doing this obviously.
I am wishcasting now, so warning. I wish that it continues to move so it doesn't get stuck and give some areas rain measured in feet.
The trough in the Atlantic is really digging southward, and the pattern may be amplifying around the system. It does look to be feeling the affects of the next shortwave in the Plains, and maybe that is why it picked up speed. The problem with extrapolating this faster movement is that eventually this trough will pass it by, and then what?

Looks like Ivan found a warm water eddy. This storm has about 12 hours to bomb before it moves inland. It also looks like it has wobbled west over the last 2 hours. Now will the NHC shift there track 20 miles to the west at 4pm ?

I certainly didn't mean to offend anybody with the sig, rather it's a harmless Family Guy reference.

Be that as it may, I changed it.

Ivan is, unfortunately, looking impressive.
