I'm cracking up at the John Mellonhead. I think someone is looking for you...

People are gonna have to learn to prepare for the next Category higher than forecasted. We know so much about these things, but still not enough...nothing new to report here but things are picking up in Pahokee on the lake, so won't be long now...

Keep telling myself this will all be worth it in January when I am sitting on the beach with a margarita...

Yeah, I found it very disturbing that the "photo of the storm" last night on Washington Post's website was a Rueters photo of "Child playing in storm-induced surf on Key West" - how stupid can people get?

Not to derail, but this has some major problems. Lines and poles will go down regardless, and it would take a very long time to visually inspect every single pole and transformer in the grid. There are also many ground-based transformers in new developments, even harder to inspect.

If ANY transformer was justled and has a short inside, it will simply wait for reacivation to explode all the same.

Meanwhile, winds have picked up considerably in Jupiter, but surprisingly enough the newspaper was delivered on time.

We're getting a lots of heavy rain and wind gusts in Polk County. I dread having to drive in it, but have to go to work. Was hoping for a phone call to not come in LOL. Good luck to our southern Florida neighbors.

MaryAnn, and others North of Wilma.

I hoe that you have seen the worst of her. However...if she makes an early turn she could run just off of the East Florida Coast...Just a heads up.

here is Fred and BamBam when you need them?




Our local mets are saying to expect the worst of her around mid day. We are supposed to get 50 mph sustained with gusts to 65. Wilma is a large storm and as she becomes extratropical her wind field will expand.

Pummeling in Ormond Beach, Cold Front? [Re: Tazmanian93]
      #62861 - Mon Oct 24 2005 07:14 AM

Temps are dropping fairly quickly here, 5 degrees in the past half hour. Could be the Cold Front droping farther south????

0730 from the Treasure Coast. Power went out at the Red Cross command center and EOC at 0700 (figues, don't it?). Seems to be isolated for now. Rain is pounding us with some good 45+MPH gusts.

All...stay dry, stay safe!
