Well most everybody here are getting ready for Hurricane Earl when it hits tomorrow night and Saturday.The big thing is I guess to make sure everything loose is under cover or tied down.We haven't had a hurricane here since 2003.

Have never experienced a hurricane,just seen it on TV,must be pretty nerve racking not knowing what the wind will destroy and what you'll have left once its done.Living where I do inland we don't ever have to contend with that type of weather.Been through one Tornado that touched down just enough to remove the top two rows of shingles off the house and take down a bunch of trees.We get pretty cold winters as well it's common to see -40 temps so all in all we seem to have to put up with different conditions in different locations.Hope you don't loose anything.Larry

I remember in the late 70's one found it's way all the way here. We had to call the Game Commission (Fish & Wildlife) because we found a tropical bird in our yard the next morning. Some kinda Stork lookin' thing. Bright colors. Game Commission had no idea what to do with it, I Think they took it to the Zoo to find someone who could deal with it. Good luck with everything & if something does end up in your yard, here's hopin' it's a GT not a bird.

As of this morning,the hurricane tracking site that I have been watching shows that the path has changed slightly,now it looks like the eye is going directly over where I live.The good new is that it is now only an H2 hurricane,and maybe it will diminish more before it hits here.We will most likely loose our power for a while ,so I probably won't be on for while.

Well Maynard, they say by the time it reaches you, it should just be a tropical storm, so you should escape it's wrath.
