Just on my way into work and was passed on the interstate in Indianapolis by 20+ power line repair trucks from Michigan heading south. Was impressive to see so many trucks from so far north headed all the way down there.

Looks like more trouble in the next week or so with some powerful waves coming off of Africa and also a major wave in the Atlantic that is expected to gain considerable strength.

Well... it is just I have never seen lightning, and another poster here was reiterating the same… which is not to say it can't happen (I have only been through two afterall). Actually, I suppose it would be difficult to locate, as thunder would be most inaudible. I did read once that lightning is observed when a tropical cyclone interacts with
mountainous terrain. I am not sure why that would happen under those conditions, and this is certainly not what is causing Dennis to do it.

Eh, exploding transformers, lightning… it’s all the same.

That was an amazing thing last year after Charley. Charley hit SW Florida on Friday - early Monday morning I passed a caravan of trucks from Cincinnati that were headed to Charlotte County. They came from all over.

I'm sure the people in Pensacola (who now have to cope with the Florida heat in no ac) will be glad to hear that too, Domino. Last year when Charley tore through Orlando, we had trucks from all over, including Canada and I believe Washington state. (the power guys became the local heroes)

Edit: Looks like great minds think alike KC

I have been monitoring this storm for the past six days, and today after watching the storm approach the Pensacola, Navarre Beach area, I actually got physically sick. I really couldn't understand why I had gotten so sick. I know I have said I went through Andrew in Homestead and I remember it being extremely dangerous to the point we thought we were going to die (we were running from room to room because we lost our roof in the first part of the storm so we had to keep running around the house, each room we went into either the ceiling collapsed or something blew through the door, so we had to keep running, until we came to the last bathroom and then finally the garage because the worst part of the storm had yet to come and we need a safe place, so we got in the car in the garage). So, today I went back and looked at the historical evidence regarding the storm today. I never got a chance to back then and hadn't wanted to until today. What I never knew until today, was that the lowest observed surface pressure and area of the highest winds (with sustained winds 165 MPH and gusts over 200 MPH was located at 288st . My address at the time was 11622 sw 281 st. The point was located between 117 and 288 st. Meaning I had experienced some of the highest winds the storm had to offer. I think even to this day I experience post traumatic stress syndrome from this storm. I just thought I would pass this along just in case anyone else out there was experiencing the same thing.

Hey, yes I still get that feeling when I hear the wind scream and that's from when I was a kid and my parents rarely chose to evacuate. We had Cindy pass by (hope they re-classify it a Cat 1 cuz it surely was) and we did not board up or anything b/c we though it would pass well east and it would not be anything. Around 2am, that NOTHING spawned tornadoes and scared me to the point of being physically ill when the winds blew. I feel for anyone that gets any storm, but Dennis sure packed a punch. Is anyone posting from Pensacola Beach/Navarre area???

Re: Dennis' Landfall + ANDREW [Re: beatlesgal]

I know the feeling .. it does make you sick. I call it flashback anxiety. I've had it every hurricane season since Andrew .. I could crawl under the bed in a fetal position. And I've come to HATE THE WIND ... I HATE it!! My insides just turn to jello.

Thank you for that view of Andrew .. I've never seen it ... I was 5 mins. from Homestead Air Force Base -- 280 St. and 157th Ave., Naranja Lakes .. didn't have a chance. Across the street were 5 mobile home communities, so all that sheet metal peeled off and ended up as a lethal hazards everywhere. Even experienced pilots who had flown in Viet NAM bringing us our salvation and food said it was worse than what they'd seen in Viet Nam. That's where the bomb went off, and where the most deaths in one development occurred.

30% of the Homestead population moved out after Andrew .. big chunk of the population.

After last season's terrors, where I had located after Andrew east of Tampa, I finally cracked ... fell apart .. had to get out after 30+ years, and I'm SO grateful I don't ever have to face these again. It becomes a wound you carry with you forever. I'll take winter and snow gladly.

I pray for the folks suffering there today ... may God bless them .. what they're facing now is pure heartbreak.. especially after last year, but when you have your life, you have everything .. the rest comes with time. Take care.



Star .. in Chicago

Like I said, I don't think you could get any more closer to a direct hit!
