I voted for CFHC and when all this clear up, may get a chance to donate to this very worthwhile system. I've learned so much and it was the number one site I missed when my DSL went down yesterday.
Well, being in Fort Pierce, we once again seem to get the proud distinction of being the target area for the storm. And while I thought we could stay at home this time, I'm thinking better of that idea. So we are going to pack up tomorrow and go to a shelter once again. I just hope the experience is shorter and with less problems than last time (no bathrooms, a carbon monoxide poison warning, crap leaking all over the floor, and our car window being smashed by pebbles on the roof).. Definitely not looking forward to it. Maybe 1-1/2 days won't be too bad, 4 was horrible. The only caveat was we were fairly unscathed and got power pretty quick back, which is definitely a blessing of course.
I had a rather newbie question of the experts and while I think I know, wanted to clarify. If the winds are 45 miles from the center, does that mean 45 from the eye's center or the 45 miles from the eyewall? Probably a stupid question, but that's how you learn, eh?
I want to thank you all so much for your advice, guidance, comments, links, humor, and of course, wonderful information and comradery. It helps in these stressful times, but I have to say that I hope that I can wait until next year after the storm to visit the site again. But probably not. :-)
Attached is a 3D cartoon I did today for some friends at another site I belong to (a 3D artists site). Seems appropriate right now, and hope you'll find it humorous as it's meant to be.
