Well, at least we know for sure Jeanne Will turn. When is the Big Question.

OK. Wierd question. I just went to take a p and the water in the toilet was almost in whitecaps, bobbing up and down. Since I've never seen it before in my life, I know it means something....

Thanks!!

Any news on power outage numbers? I'd like to know the state wide number.




I haven't run across that yet ... it seems to change on every broadcast. I figure we'll need to wait till after Jeanee goes by to get that true info...

Oh yeah... it will turn eventually. The farther west it goes the more liklihood of a GOM entry, which opens up the possibility for more strengthening, another landfall, etc. The last five NHC updates now have all been at Lat 27.2. No deviation north yet...

OT: gouging [Re: danielw]
      #32504 - Sun Sep 26 2004 01:48 AM

did someone mention gouging? Neighbors were saying earlier they found 5 gallon gas containers at a neighborhood home fix it up store priced at $25! I went and bought 25 3/16" tapcons with washers and was charged $31 at a local beach hardware store. The store owner proudly told me he sold over 10,000 the last 2 weeks. I went home and called 1-800-646-0444 -- the price gouging hotline and then wondered if he'll be as happy a few weeks from now.

What a shame.

There is a vent above your roof line that is sometimes referred to as a "stink stack" for ventilation aiding the flow of you sewer system. High winds flowing across this pipe can create a vaccum, causing white caps and tidal surges in your toilet. This is common in strong thunderstorms as well.

If you have a septic system and you've had a lot of rain, you're septic tank may be overflowing. I've never seen whitecaps in a toilet, could you take a picture?

Humanriff... that wasn't your toilet, it was your pool. They get pretty frothy in a hurricane. NO MORE BEER FOR YOU!

On a more serious note... if Jeanne stays west she will pass over the north end of Lake Okeechobee. I know it's a very shallow lake, but it's very warm I believe (83 deg?). Will Jeanne draw any substantial energy from the lake?

Which just goes to show that there isn't anything about the weather that someone on this board doesn't know. Also gives me a chance to thank 'Skeet for his/her awsome graphics.

Jeanne's north of Lake Okeechobee. Thank God.

This is worse than Charley and Frances, at least from my part of Polk County.

Seele, according to the maps you linked to. Jeanne was intensifying prior to landfall. Somewhat like Andrew.
