Tropical Storm Chris

    Yeah, Rita (end of September) was a real exception to the rule.

    If I was in the eastern half of the Gulf, I'd be watchful. Not nervous, but watchful. After all, it's still just a tropical storm right now and there's always a chance it won't grow past a small Cat 1. The same high pressure bubble that's making me sweat in Texas right now, though, may take this thing up and send it on an Ivan-like path.

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not. i said it's a possibility. Rita showed that. I'm just saying on average, by August, hurricanes start shifting towards the central and east Gulf of Mexico for landfall.

    Anyways, I'd do what Johnny_D says if you live near the coast. Get your supplies now. The earlier the better. And, if you're in Alabama, I'm pretty sure this weekend they're doing the no sales tax or some kind of discount on back to school supplies. Some of that stuff can be used during hurricanes, though. Like batteries. Anyways, stay tuned.

    well, we've got our supplies for the rest of the season (gotta love costco) about the only thing we don't have is gas for the three 5-gallon gas cans. no need to fill up until it's a day or two away because i don't want 15 gallons of gas sitting in my shed for any longer than necessary. and the house will be shuttered while we're gone.

    Looking at that track I can't help but think that it's not out of the realm of possibility for Chris to take a turn right for NOLA.

    Blitz, the only time I've been to Illinois is when I switched planes in Chicago.

    Yep, here we go again...could go right over the Keys...but could turn north.

    It's hard for me to fathom that there was a time that if you lived in South Florida, you kind of thought the idea of a hurricane coming by was kind of interesting, like it'd be a interesting experience.

    These storms are a complete pain in the ass.

    A buddy of mine is getting married Saturday and heading for the Bahamas on Sunday. Looks like the storm will miss the Bahamas, but his travel plans could be fucked up pretty good.

    I used to feel that way . . . right up until the day I bought a house.
