It's that tiny little red dot, it no longer exists. It's been completely bulldozed to the ground. So you can see why I get a little touchy about people dissing all of the people in that area.

This might sound weird and sick, but I look forward to hurricane season. I am really interested in meteorology. I of course dont want them to land here in the US, or anywhere for that matter, but its an awesome phenomenon to me.

Finally back on 2 wheels

I heard that people in FL are having a tough time getting homeowners insurance this year from Hurricane types of weather?

Any of you FL's shed some light?

People down here are still able to get insurance but its mad expensive. the rates have gone up tremendously. Ive heard flood insurance is hard to come by.

One thing im getting this year that i should have had last, is a generator. I lost the contents of my fridge twice. What kind of generators do yall have? Im also getting more MRE's, those things are the best.

And im setting my Fantacy football draft as early as possible. Katrina ruined my draft last year by knocking my power out for so long.

Gov. Jeb is pushing a bill for a 1 % surcharge to set up a disaster fund for hard hit areas like the Gulf coast where US 98 was washed away in some areas...

We made sure we got good coverage this year... and thats about it... I live a mile away from the ocean, and all that i have in front of my house in mangrove which is supposed to act as a protective barrier from storms, but Andrew proved us wrong back in 92.... fingers crossed, and I'm hoping we fare well this time around.

Good luck everyone

Yeah. Be safe down there everyone.


I've got a wedding planned on the Outer Banx of NC for the first week of Aug...crossing my fingers for no hurricane action.


Not just then but the season...
