That Interstate 10 being out is going to be a problem for a good while, there's a good chance the whole thing is unsound now. The only bad thing about reports doing live shots is a lot of the time they can't give you a good extent of the damage. I have a feeling the reports are going to come in over the next few days are going to be not so good.

I'm going to be gone from the site until Monday night because of a family emergency. The rest should be able to hold it. If I get a chance or two to check on Jeanne I might but no guarantees.

With part of I-10 being gone and the fact that Hwy 90 that connects pensacola to pace in santa rosa is probably under water, there is no way to get back to our house.

Fortunately, from what we've heard, we lost our fence and some trees, and maybe some broken windows, but the house is still there and better than some in our neighborhood who lost their homes.

I hear they're undera boil water restriction presently as well as 300,000 without power, which Gulf power says covers the 4 extreme counties of florida: escambia, santa rosa, okaloosa and bay counties.

btw, pictures of the I-10 bridge loss is available at www.pensacolanewsjournal.com

I do not even want to look at the Jeanne (btw, half the forecasters are pronouncing it "Jean" and half "Jeanie" -- does anyone know if there is a "correct" pronounciation?). Lets just hope the mountains of Hispaniola deal her a death knell...and lets hope the disaster of last May does not repeat itself.




It's pronounced "GEEN". The folks who are confused aren't used to seeing "Jean" Spelled "Jeanne".

I interviewed with a Jeanne once and fortunately, I called her "GEEN" instead of "GEENEE" - I heard that she would immediately end the interview with anyone making that faux pas.

Sorry, I should of explained myself better. I always keep stuff like that on hand. Not wait until the last minute and have to rush out and get it. You know how it is here.......People panic over 1/4 inch of snow, let alone something like this coming at them.




*chuckles* did you panic when atlanta had 3 inches of ice on the roads, Lord knows I did when I actually was dumb enough to get stuck out in the middle of it and had to crawl my way home... Atlanta gets some of the strangest weather. But only rarely....

Back to on topic: looks like Ivan really picked up forward speed at the last moment. I'm having serious doubts about a stall at this point. What are the implications for Jeanne if Ivan races out of the picture in the next 48 hours?

Also, is it just me, or do the hurricanes seem more... tenacious this year, fighting shear, fighting all sorts of negative factors and troopering on? (or maybe the negative influences weren't as negative as they seemed to be at the time...)

Take care people, I understand there's no school in most of Georgia today. Hopefully, that's not a bad sign...

It was, what many consider to be our first TD or TS (went unnamed) of the season...torrential rains and flooding killed thousands (not sure of the number but I believe it was 4,000+) in Hispaniola, most of them in Haiti. I'll go find the thread on which it was discussed and link you to it...

start reading on Page 10...the news goes from bad to worse...

I think it is going to take a while to get a lot of good news on Pensacola. Media seemed to be focused on Mobile. I know that this is overwhelming the news resources that are in Pensacola. My concern is definately for the beaches from Gulf Shores, Alabama to Destin, Fl. It may be diffcult to get info from these areas at this time. They were getting hard poundings at 9:00 last night. If landfall did not occur until 3:00am, I shudder to think what some of these areas may look like. Not sure how passable US98 is right now. I remember what Fort Walton looked like after Opal. I suspect that Pensacola Beach will look a lot worse.

You got stuck in it? So did I. We were on 400 when they started shutting down the hwy. trying to get to the airport.

However, my mother seems to think there is a dirrect correlation between the hurricane season in the summer and the snowfall in the winter.......

Does anyone know how the beaches fared in PCB?

Well, so much for jeane getting weaker. If anything it is getting stronger. I mean it should have gotten weak from going over pr and it went from 60 to 80 over that time frame.

Just read the 11 Am Discussion for Jeanne.

Anybody else tired or reading "Steering currents become weak after 48 hours"?

Went from 70 to 60 and then after being back over the ocean, went up to 80. Slight but important difference there

NHC has quoted the research of experts showing that the steering currents and other variables are quite favorable for tropical storm development this year, and conditions which take them farther west ... which is why everyone has been calling for an above average season. (an understatement?)
It should be pointed out that many schools (incl. Tampa) had already selected today as a holiday since it coincides with Rosh Hashanah. Perhaps the same is true in GA?

Spoke to family in Vero this morning. They are still going through frequent power outages and they aren't taking their plywood down for a while.
Family in Mobile, P-goula, and Gautier are okay as well. I don't think they got too much damage. (fam. in Mobile has a house on the bay. They haven't gone to check things out yet)
Still waiting to hear about beach house in PCB............

My mother's sister-in-law Jeanne pronounced her name ZHAHN - Tante Jeanne to me.

If the NHC wanted a GEEN, why not Jean?

I heard a report from PCB 98 was closed from there to Destin.

From FWB a report it was closed from there to Pensacola.

I guess it is open in downtown FWB, PERIOD.
