Has anyone seen the latest GOM water vapor loop? Not an expert but sure does look like it is diving south and east fairly quickly now. Wonder what this will do to Dennis as he emerges from Cuba.

My parents live in P'cola. Thier house is near the back entrance to NAS off of Fairfield. Ivan took off the Florida room and the roof with it. They are long gone. The folks around them that stayed for Ivan are leaving too. One of the best reasons (other than safety) is living with out power and debris everywhere is so much better. At least for a few days.

Convert UPPERCASE to lowercase

It's up now.

If I have time tomorrow, I'll edit that to be a regular expression which much tighter control over what gets changed (allow initial cap and look for proper nouns from a library).

But hey, that's not what you get for 103 seconds worth of work.

was just announced on news station WPMI here in Mobile, and I made sure to listen closely. They clearly said "MANDATORY evacuation of all of Mobile County". Almost couldn't believe my ears; sounded a little extreme given that the official track is still to our east. On the other hand, the track looks like it will actually go more over the north parts of the county and maybe that's what they are thinking.

Sorry Bev, that doesn't work for me... A quick UCase() and everything is taken care of on the recieving side. Also, if they really wanted to complicate their lives, the ASCII values for upper and lower case letters have the same delta offsets.

BTW, *not* giving you a hard time! Just coming around to a firm theory that the guys over there are typing with one hand. ;-)

Great forecasting, though!!!




ROFL... well thank you for the lesson, and my forecast is... I'm heading to TN for the summer. Had enough of this weather last year. Btw, my specialty is network security and NOT programming, obviously. :-)

Those poor fellows typing with one hand are most likely praying their forecasts are right with the other.

but you could very well be in the eye wall of this system, and if its a strong 3, no part of the eye wall would be a good thing... even more all it would take would be a wobble to the west a few miles and you could take a direct... this thing could very easily hit the MS/AL state line and its Fredrick all over again... I'm not saying this is going to happen but its certainly possible..

Baudelaire,
Just in case you didn't know, they put out mandatory evacs for both Hurlburt and Eglin AFB for a min distance of at least 100 miles away. Not sure if you were there last summer for Ivan, but our house is near FWB high school and we lost 3 big trees and that wasnt even a direct hit. Whatever you decide, I hope you stay safe.

http://www.ema.alabama.gov/ - The second article down talks of the evacs.




And here is yet another, at http://www.wpmi.com/news/local/story.aspx?content_id=60635E5E-6C8A-4CA8-9BE5-E8DD43AC4BDD

which says in part, "
GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) - About a half-million people on the Alabama coast were ordered to evacuate Friday as Hurricane Dennis took aim at beach resorts still trying to patch roofs, restore dunes and rebuild high-rise condos wrecked by Ivan last year.

Gov. Bob Riley, with recommendations from emergency management officials, ordered the mandatory evacuation of all of Mobile County, with more than 400,000 residents, and the part of Baldwin County that is south of Interstate 10, a coastal area with about 100,000 people. It was uncertain how many would leave, with traffic already bumper-to-bumper in some places. While the evacuation is mandatory, such orders in past hurricanes have been followed mostly by those at the beach resorts, low-lying coastal areas or in mobile homes in the two counties, which surround Mobile Bay and include fragile Gulf islands. But many even in urban Mobile have boarded up and fled, too. Alabama Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Martha Earnhardt said law enforcement officers can arrest anyone who disobeys an evacuation order. But she said the troopers' focus will not be on making arrests but making sure the evacuation continues smoothly.The evacuation order takes effect at 6 a.m. Saturday. At that time, state troopers will begin turning Interstate 65 into a one-way north to Montgomery, about 170 miles from Mobile. I-65 will return to two-way traffic at 5 p.m.

Bev,

It's more basic than that. Old languaguges (like Assembler and Cobol) are uppercase. I will bet you that certain portions of systems in the NHC are Cobol, Fortran/and or Assembler.

Sometimes the choice is made for you about whether you evacuate or not. If you're undecided, plan for the worst, especially in case of a CAT 3 or higher. You're probably hearing a lot of this from public officials. ... Survey the immediate area where you live and secure any loose items/debris. You should evacuate to at least 30 miles inland from the coast to avoid life threatening surge, flooding and wind damage, but be careful you don't evacuate INTO the possible path of the storm. Watch out for tornadoes along feeder bands, sometimes far from the storm center. If you're in an area expecting winds over 75 mph, anticipate damage to buildings from nearby trees and other debris around your home blown around by the wind (even worse if you live in a mobile home). Plan to be without power for at least a week.
Unfortunately, this became a way of life for many of us in Florida last year. Ultimately, you have to make the decision about when and where to go; and if you go, realize you might not be able to get back to your home for several days.

We'll be praying for the best.
