This weekend

Normally, is the other way around..... But right now is difficult to concentrate when you are thinking about the amount of insurance coverage on your house, and wether or not you have enough water and batteries.

My boss is leaving for a long-planned vacation cruise to one of the Virgin Islands (I think) Thursday evening and his port of departure is Miami.

Maybe Georgia is the place to live in that region. A news program said this morning that they've not had a hurricane in over 50 years.

Having spent some time in the aftermath of a serious hurricane some years ago, I know what the folks in Florida are going thru and what they will soon face if it continues it's predicted track.

Best of Luck to you all.

I was in Daytona Beach the day after Charley hit... if Frances is anything like that, look out folks. Take your Labor Day vacation, and come up to Boston for the weekend. It's supposed to be 80 and sunny, not 80 and hurricane ;)

I am in the Tampa area, thankfully this time I shouldnt evacuated no matter what happens. With the last one I have to pack up everything I own into my cars and leave. Hoping I didnt forget anything really important.

This storm scares me even more than the last though with its size. Charlie was big but Frances is HUGE!

It's enough to make an old man worry about his daughter and grandson. Last time I looked it was predicted to pass right over them.

Our Ft. Lauderdale office is shut until Tuesday; they're transporting backup tapes to an inland vault.

Still at work right now. They just issued a warning for the east coast of Florida. The President of the company and the EVPs are meeting in about 40 minute. I guess that at that time we are going to get sent home.

Very sad. This is the kind of storm that will kill people.
