Re: Huricane Ivan The Terrible

WHAT DID FLORIDA DO???!?!?!?!?!

another storm geez -- all well lived through this one-- trying to live without Internet--not working well--no cd very sad indeed--

all well-- still under the great state of emergency and well be again probably-- can this storm just disappear??????

well enjoy everyone!!! hopefully Florida will still be here in a few weeks-- good luck to rest of florida cleaning up and preparing for this another storm will it hit or will it not that is the real question not to be or not to be





ooh just to let my fellow spammers know (well that's if they can get online )-- as i know sfhs lost parts of it's roof nothing known about our lovely pit out back--but mr. higgins said he put up SAM up from the floor and power turned off --so if no trees damaged our roof and all -- i think our bots are fine hopefully they are

As a former floridian...I believe mother nature for "natural selection" against those people that dont know how to vote.

It just sucks for everyone not apart of this "natural selection."

Re: Huricane Ivan The Terrible

Well as we look at this stormm i am just speechless, this is the beast. This is the 9th most powerful hurricane in hurricane history. This thing will be castrophic. They are saying this will wipe out jamica. As of 6 pm tonight they are evacuating the keys. Its already hit some islands and its just totally have wiped them out. There is still alot of places that are still not in school becasue of Frances and this is just going to screw up everything. I mean we have been in college for 3 weeks and we arre just missing so much class because of hurricanes since college has started i have been to english class once becasue of hurricanes. Well as we sit and wait we need prayer cause i have just gone thru two hurricanes and i have been thru andrew and never been worried. This one right here is a hurricane that could destroy alot of things

Re: Huricane Ivan The Terrible

I am praying that Florida is spared, but unfortunately, it doesn't seem so. The wind is blowing north even in Indiana (it is pretty hot even up here). If the wind changes direction to go south, it may weaken just before it hits Texas.

My weather prayers will be in winter, when we have huge snowfalls and ice storms. I hate global warming.

Re: Huricane Ivan The Terrible

Well, I'd recommend South Carolina, but we seem to be socked with them not that much less. (Actually, we're right on Ivan's path, last I saw...just our luck.)

I guess I'll extend the invitation now for all of the South Florida folks to come up here to Columbia and make it a week-long tailgate party before the USC-USF football game next Saturday. USC tailgating seems to take about that long anyway. (Alright, so we tailgate all day until kickoff. But you know what I mean.)

And remember--stay safe darnit!

Re: Huricane Ivan The Terrible

Tytus is one of the unlucky ones to actually have physical damage to his home feed. They'll be the last to get help, maybe weeks... About 50% of the people I know still don't have power, and most just got there's within the last day or two. Now everyone is panicking and running North. This is so unbelievable, it's like a bad soap drama. This morning my wife was at the grocery store while the 11:00 advisory was coming out, when she went in it was calm and everything was pretty well stocked. By the time she left it was pure chaos, the store was jammed and shelves emptied again. I'm sure the gas lines will be miles long again tonight for people trying to get out of here. Plus there isn't a functioning street light anywhere, it's so dangerous out on the roads, everyones blowing through intersections everywhere you go. I feel for you Steve K if you've been without power since Charley. We were going nuts after a few days without it. Looks like the latest model now is saying more towards Tampa again. I think I'd leave for this one if I lived over there. But not where we are in West Palm I think it should slow down over land.
This is sooooo stressful

Re: Huricane Ivan The Terrible

Thoughts and prayers are with y'all down there. Stay safe and don't do stupid stuff--like try to get 'the greatest pics.'

For your sake in Florida, I hope Ivan hangs to the west--there's no hope of his going far enough to the east to avoid damage to some of our southern friends! You'll just be luckey if he doesn't just run right up through the middle of Florida! I'd hate to think of what that would do to you...

I officially invite all floridians to move to California, no hurricanes at all, and here in Palmdale there's no rain either, just the occasional dust-storm.

EDIT: Wow, I think they just said Ivan was a 5, I didn't know that... ooh. And it could intesify even more when it gets to Cuba! This one will be BAD.
