Quote: I know it's exciting that Frances is a hurricane now,
I think that exciting is the wrong word for the feeling that many of us here in central florida feel as Frances organizes. There is an excitement that comes from looking at a cane that is forming, and has nothing to do with the dread that we feel at the thought of one of these beautiful monsters taking aim at the east coast. Everytime I drive in to Orlando and see the aftermath of Charley, I wonder why I love watching these storms develope. Yet here I am every night, surfing from site to site, trying to teach myself something about the mystery of the big storms. Education was my only weapon against the fear. For the most part everyone is still talking way over my head, but I get the drift and go hunting for explinations to the things that have been posted. Frances "feels" and looks like what I saw with floyd. I do not know if it is the size of the storm building, or the speed it is organizing. It is still out there a ways, and the hand of god can still push it more north, but someone is going to deal with this baby. In my very VERY novice opinion. For what its worth. Be Safe Whatever happens!!
