That's Nutz! We haven't got that much rain in the past 2 months all together. We just had a down pouring spotty thunderstorms yesterday, and last night, that blows I wanted to ride, or atleast take the bike out of my truck, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen today either unless this overcast goes away.

You guys still have SNOW?!!!

Jeebus!

You should ALL come out this way. We may get rain but we don't get snow (more than once every 2yrs or so) and we certainly don't get trop. storms/hurricanes/tornadoes....Jeez

I LOVE natural disasters! They are great. I used to drive to the beach when I was in NY and sit there when a hurricane was comin' up the coast. Did it in lightining storms too! People thought I was nuts. I walked around the town in the rain, lightining and winds when I was in florida. When I was in Georgia, I went out when they had a hurricane come through Fort Benning. It was great. Natural disasters are great and if you can't or don't want to deal with them then MOVE!

Cindy skirted me to the east. Shan should be underwater by now. I used to love hurricanes and the sort till i got a house. Id go stand out in the winds and raing and see how far i could lean forward or run against the wind.

Thank's Cindy...

Just got home from work (I'm currently TDY to a navy base about 30 min's from my home!) and a limb of about 8 inches in dia. came down in the high winds that came thru this morning, barely missing my house ! It came to rest about 3 feet from the side of the house. Upon looking at the limb, it was apparently partialy split from the tree during Hurricane Ivan, and today's wind just finished the job !

Yeah the city that got all the rain as I said was Hot-lanta! I guess it's not so hot now to live in At-lanta!

I don't mean to poke too much fun at the problems down there. I am seriously concerned for everybody. I hope everybody makes it out ok.

I too use to like storms and stuff until I got a house. Now I hate all that stuff... so worried that everything I've worked hard for will be ruined.
