Comments: Reading Predictions

I certainly hope you are wrong, but I've got a bad feeling as well. I live about 150 miles as the crow flies from the NC coast, and I've seen it blowing a steady 90 mph in my backyard. Heck, when I was living across the street from Dobbins AFB in Marietta, shortly after Opel made landfall in the FL panhandle, it was blowing a steady 65-70...that far inland. When I was much younger, I rode one out on the east coast of FL. That was an experience to say the least. Some people think it's cool to ride 'em out...I say "break for cover". On the coast...the surge will kill you quicker than the wind.

On an unrelated matter: Did you see the Shuttle glide in yesterday? Very cool...I was watching it tracking on NASA's site. Amazing, to me, how fast they made it to CA from HI...amazing how fast can can do a lap of the planet.

Have a good day.

Well, I hope you're wrong, but my gut tells me that your gut knows what it's talking about.

God I hope not. Not just because of all the devastation and chaos normally associated with such an event, but I don't want the oil companies having another excuse to jack gas prices up clear out of the solar system. Or, worse yet, any more shortages, like what we had after Ike.

Say it isn't so! Tell your gut to take some Pepto or something and try again!

It's hot there and cool here. And when those collide... Tornadoes.
