    From one of my favorites! I have the music/video on my profile! Love "Last Friday Night" and I can identify with Kathy Lee Terry!!

    Yeah, we don't need a hurricane, but a tropical storm can sit on top of us for a few days...that's no big deal.

    Probably because this is joke thread and you're just a total dick.

    Anyways, maybe Tampa will get lucky and this pull a Charley from 2004 and get raked. Ok seriously, HIGHLY unlikely but ya never know but I don't see it more than a minimal hurricane at best if it gets that far.

    Maybe it's because Admin is watching your ample and portly backside on all of the hate and venom flashing from your fingertips. Before Admin gives you the final shove out the door, just leave without saying goodbye--and take your like-minded (if they had those) friends with you somewhere else. The RJ family will be happier and better off without you. Understand?

    Who knows at this point, of course, but, generally, it seems the sooner they take aim, the more likely they veer off.

    Just like Hurricane Charley in 2004. That one had Tampa in it's sights but made a sharp right turn into Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte/Charlotte County (and wrecked that area). A few hours later, it roared through Orlando.

    That might have been when Max and the news really started stressing the cone instead of the line because if I remember right that storm "wobbled", as they put it, just before landfall. Regardless, a lot of people were pissed off at the forecast on that one.

    If this one comes together (90% probability of tropical formation as of this posting) it looks like it might form pretty close to land, but for now the advisory is simply that "Tropical storm watches or warnings could be required for a portion of the northern gulf coast over the weekend". And my garden couldn't be happier with this rain we're finally getting, as we've had only a few days of rain so far this season.

    For all you guys worried about hurricanes smashing into Tampa-St Petersburg and other Gulf Coast locales, come up to Buffalo for the summer and escape the worries and threats of these vicious tropical storms. Our summers up here are beautiful, the people are friendly, and everything in Buffalo and WNY is very affordable.icon_biggrin.gif

    TheKnockOut saidoh man I think its time ....since weather goes in patterns of years.

    My partner feels that way about south Florida. Last night he signed a $500k contract to upgrade windows and sliding doors in our condo complex, affecting the remaining ones that had not yet been replaced following Hurricane Wilma. That'll bring 100% of our windows & doors up to hurricane standard. We hope the building permits can be issued (a painfully slow process in Wilton Manors) and the work completed quickly, before a hurricane hits.

    Would have been sooner, but believe it or not it's taken years to win a lawsuit on claims against our insurance company, going back to 2005, so that we would have the money for this project. Let's pray it's in time.
