>>> Remember the guys from last night that watched their Izuzu fill up with water?

They are down by the Gulf looking for it now......

Damn, that wasn't cheap either...Lowes better not start jacking up the price of plywood to cover that loss...surprised they didn't park it on the I-10 bridge.

Good Luck, Now- what is going to happen with Jeanne? I presume we must wait until Saturday AM to get the latest trended track; no wonder many shutters are still up in the Fort Pierce area.

Danny,

Frank P. is fine...he posted several times earlier today...as for the others...not sure. But since Jav lives 2 blocks away from Frank, he's probably OK too.

EDIT: Here's my take on the off-topic stuff...after people have gone thru what most on this board have been thru...NOTHING'S OFF TOPIC...sometime talking about something OTHER than the next potential monster helps people deal...there's gonna be an awful lot of PTS (or whatever it's called) Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome...

As long as you don't curse or attack, I'm letting it all stay up...talk away.

Ok, finally took an actual look at Jeanne. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't the concentric circles represent increasing isobars towards the center? Wouldn't this show a high pressure area near the eastern edge of Florida/Atlantic ocean. If that is true, why exactly is this storm going up the east coast? Maybe I have no idea what this graph is representing....

Phil...I'll go off topic this one last time to answer Spazz's question. The waves over there are similiar to here in that they are wind swell generated mostly from local storms and not the long distance ground swells that California or Hawaii gets. The waves I rode on the Sunday before that last typhoon hit that I spoke of, which was on a monday nite, were a solid 6ft. and good. Now back to Jeanne.

Richie, check my last post (I edited it)...it's cool right now...

There is a high there
Ivan is moving east, and pushing the high east, and is what is going to pull Jeanne to the north while it is in the Atlantic

Ok, I get it... Thanks. The water vapor wasn't very helpful to me since Ivan takes up so much area. I wish those wind diagrams came in loops.

If there has been a trend this season, it has been coast hugging and bouncing storms.

Do you think the Isuzu had anything to do with the I-10 bridge getting knocked out? I did see a pic of a truck on the bridge, at the hole!

It is fun to watch the surfers..........too bad I am scared of sharks and whatever else be prowling around. Never been to Cali.............I imagine surfer's paradise since I don't think they get hurricanes right?

So if Ivan's #2, that means the top 2 tornado-producing hurricanes would both have come from this season -- Frances is number one.

Sheesh. What a season.

Remember though something I learned on TWC....should this baby do the groove on our FL east coast that her more dangerous NW quad will be not facing us.. All bets are off on that protection should she turn in and there goes my power again for time number 3.

Danny,

>>> Do you think the Isuzu had anything to do with the I-10 bridge getting knocked out? I did see a pic of a truck on the bridge, at the hole!

LOL! No, I was cracking wise...perhaps not the best time to do so...it just amazes me what people will do to try to get a story...someone last night said it's going to take a piece of sheet metal going thru a reporter during a live feed to make the networks rethink their policy of reporting live from a storm from such dangerous locations. In the case of the hurricanetrack.com vehicle (the Isuzu), it was loaded with a bunch of sensitive hurricane recording data...as it has been in past storms...and "anchored" to the ground...no one was in the vehicle of course...you had to figure that at some point they'd park the vehicle just a little too close to the danger zone...I haven't checked the website, but I'm guessing that's what's happened here.

As for the tractor trailor on the bridge, I offered my theory earlier today...it stalled or something, and the driver bolted...I cannot imagine that they would permit a vehicle like that to CROSS the bridge with winds that would surely blow it over the side...someone said the cab and driver are in the water...sure hope not...it was just such a riviting shot (photograph) I tried to equate the Lowe's Isuzu placement with the semi on the bridge...didn't do it too well, I guess.

You seen Rush Hour? A hurricane would seriously put a lot of LA on the history channel............so many hills in one place and they aint those little mole hills like in the panhandle either.

I heard about the Northridge quake of 94, was living in Chi-town at the time.....man was I greatful to not be living out there..
