Bonnie is not supposed to be that strong. Charley is the big one. I have been here since 95 and have not seen anything wo worry about. They always miss our area, but are saying it will be hitting. I will beleive it when I see it.

Not to make light of a serious situation but as I heard the news all day I could not help thinking that the "Name givers" should have picked Clyde as the "C" storm.

Good luck riding it out and prayers are going out.

Good luck to everybody in their path. Here in Maryland we just went through Hurricane Isabel. Izzy surged our tides in excess of 9 feet above normal. We lost a lot of waterfront homes due to it.

Now they say that we will get a double whammy in that both storms are currently forecast to go right over us. The first storm will bring in excess of 4 inches of rain on Friday. The second storm will show up Saturday night and no doubt lead to massive inland flooding.

BTW, I am preparing for these storms. In addition to all of my regular accounts yesterday I also did my biggest account. It is normally done on Thursday. Now all I have to do is my smaller Thursday's and Friday's accounts today (Thursday). We'll see how it goes.

Fortunately these 2 storms are babies , as far as tropical storms go anyway ..I haved lived in S.Fla since 79 ...Andrew was a REAL good one , That storm kicked the heck out of us down here ....

Thank for the prayers everyone ...

On a brighter note ..THere will be a little $ to be made cleaning
