The Gov.was just on tv telling us to be prepared to hunkerdown. I hate that word. Surf is picking up out at the beach. Got all important stuff, water,batteries,gas,pet food. We have been thru Charlie,Frances,Jeane & Wilma so I know what to do and have done it early. Stores around here not to crazy, but starting to see some lines at gas stations. SO is working down in Stuart and he said people down there are going crazy. He is sending all his guys home middaytomorrow andis worried about them being able to find fuel to get out of town.

I'm keeping everyone in my prayers!!! I'm really worried about everyone and your little furbabies. I hope the intensity of the hurricane will die down before it hits. I'm soo sorry ya'll are going through this...it stinks to have things happen like that with little time to prepare. I hope everyone has evacuation plans ready if need be and all of your personal papers and things in order. Everyone is in my thoughts and prayers!!! Please stay safe!

Looks like it's headed for Miami... Which is where our home campus is... ( I work for a university).. We got the message yesterday that Miami Shores Campus was closing tomorrow for students only... Then later we heard closing for students AND staff in Miami... THEN students in Pinellas park were out also... THEN all students AND staff are closed for both campus'... So I'm off tomorrow... PAID... but I am worried sick for all my students in miami.. Alot of them are from out of state and they haven't been through this before..I'm almost positive we'll be off Wed too... Please keep all the students in your prayers.

Here's the new track for Tropical Storm Ernesto! Looks like it's going to be a strong tropical storm by the time it makes landfall in Miami!

I'm so sorry they have to go through this, I'll be praying for them. ( I'm just 5 minutes away from Miami Shores)

It's here! The storm is going to make landfall tonight! We are under a Hurricane watch, Tropical Storm warning, flood watch and a tornado warning! I hope I don't lose my power!

I hope everyone is safe and it downgrades even further! No one wants a repeat of any of the hurricanes from last year! Stay safe!

Just got word... Miami campus is closed again tomorrow...I figured it would be. I can only imagine what the students down there are thinking. We have gotten a few rain bands but nothing to worry about. I just talked to some co-workers down there and they said it's just rain and wind for now so that's good... glad it isn't going to be that bad.... at least we hope!

It's a weak storm, just rain and a little wind. We were lucky this time.

I know I'm a crabby old lady, but I went through Hurricane Andrew.
The very last thing you want is to be drunk when your house falls down. When a storm comes we sleep with our shoes on ready to react quickly and smart. The people who die in storms usually do so because they did something stupid.

Ernesto wasn't bad at all- we lucked out this time.

Now we drink!!

Maybe it's just me,.... but something makes me think having your house fall in on you would make you sober up PDQ.

That reminds me. After Frances, while our power was still out and Ivan was on his way (or at least we thought he was, ended up hitting the west coast...) one of my neighbors had a sign in the window that said "Ivan you're too late! Our beer is already warm!"

Not much here except rain so far, but it's not scheduled to make a direct hit until this evening I believe. Although walking the dogs while being pelted with huge raindrops was not exactly a fun way to wake up this morning
