Tropical Storm Irene

Well..its been all over the local news here in sarasota county as well as the weather channel...Is this going to be the first hurricane of this season. The tracking as of 9am shows a Cat 1 for friday, 2am hitting around miami moving right thru florida. Should be interesting, I guess I better sharpen my chains for my chain saws..lol.what you all think?

Can you please tell her to pass Florida up and park herself over Central Texas. We havent had rain since January. There are town without water and wild fires that are out of control here. My business is shot. Went from 92 lawns to 10. We need rain bad.

Agreed. Casey Anthony Trial is over.....weather is now the big news story. Very well could come but I would wait until a couple days before making any big plans. For the newbs - if you do not have a chainsaw and pole saw....this very could be your best investments if it does come through.

I love storm money, especially about 2 days prior. People go nuts and just want everything trimmed!

Sorry Guys

But I see this storm more from a victims angle than a big money maker.
