"Bonnie" and "Charlie"

    I know this isn't "Football" but with these nasty ass storms blowing through Florida, I just wanted to know how my boys "C-Dog" and "Kippy" were getting through. I've seen on The Weather Channel that JAX could be getting some major rain (up to 3" per hour) tomorrow. Just wanted to send out a "best wishes" to you guys, and any other Buckeye brother who might be dealing with this over the next several hours.

    We've been told to expect 75mph wind gusts and some flooding, there was a tornado in the area today. My only concern is that the power company here (JEA) is inept and criminally irresponsible, so I'm just wondering if the power is going to be down for hours or days. I'm pretty close to the ocean, and right by the intercoastal, but since it's coming up from the Gulf side, there's a lot of land to break it up. I've got a buddy in Seminole (Tampa Bay) riding it out, he's in for a harder ride.

    Thanks "Woody" for the concern and as C-Dog stated, the brunt of the storm is coming in from the southwest corner of the peninsula of Florida and that will tend to have a chance to start to break up as it starts its trek over the mainland heading up to the northeast corner, where C-Dog and myself are located. By that time "Charlie" is hoping to be down-graded to a tropical depression again but ya just never know.

    The one true concern we all have as floridians is that we still suffer from "Tornado" winds and hail and rain due to the after effects of hurricane winds. Yesterday at about 4 15 in the afternoon I witnessed some dark depressions in the sky accompanied by severe lightning and teriffic winds close to my home but that was all. But I learned later that we did have a Tornado touch down close to downtown Jacksonville.

    But we go thru this every afternoon and just take it for granted. The only thing we really fear is the terrific amount of "Lightning strikes" in our area. I work on the golf course and have experienced this threat many times and its scary as hell. Seeing these things can really put the fear of God in a man.

    I was kind of flippant in my post yesterday (see the open discussion board) about the storm, but now I do have a fairly legitimate concern. I live in a brand new development and there's a house under construction across the street. Well, the stucco contractor decided to leave his trailer here in the street right in front of my house. Its full of scaffolding materials, wheelbarrels, 2X6 planks of wood, buckets, etc. The big stuff is chained in, but why in the hell would they just leave it here? Also, there's a huge pile of construction debris in the front yard - scraps of sheetrock, metal framing, you get the idea. 10 til 10 and its still clear here, but I have to admit I'm pretty nervous about all that crap at the house across the street..

    thanks BB - ten til noon, and its still sunny here. I just want to see some rain already - the anticipation is killing me. At least I didn't have to work today, I have a couple fellow buckeyes over here that had to evacuate their house (they live right on the bay.) We're having a hurricane party, I'm on my fourth beer myself :) I'll let you guys know when the storm starts here..

    Here in Bradenton it's starting to get dark and we have a little bit of rain... we should have tropical storm type winds within the next two hours. It's looking like the eye might pass right over us (just south of Tampa) I was just in downtown Sarasota and the place was a ghost town. The National Guard was starting to come out and get ready.

    on a side note... my parents names are Bonnie and Chuck. kind of ironic about the strom names :)

    For those in the storm... be safe!

    20 til 2 - we had our first spat of rain about an hour ago and its fairly dark now. The forecasts are saying the eye will pass over Fort Myers, which is about two hours south of here. Right now I'm tentatively optimistic for no major damage here..

    South of us too... but they upgraded it to a catagory 4 hurricane. The winds near the eye are reaching 145MPH :(

    The eye's hitting land now on the north end of Ft. Myers. It will cross through Florida past Orlando and Daytona, go into the Atlantic and then probably head for the Carolinas. Hopefully it'll be downgraded by then.
