    I've never been through a hurricane, but I've been through extreme wind sheer - essentially a LARGE tornado flipped on its side. The winds were gusting at about 120mph, relentless lightning and sideways rain. That scared the ever living **** out of me...

    You guys down in Florida are somewhat used to stuff like that though. Up here in Central NY State, we're very used to getting feet of snow overnight and blizzards. Most of the time they don't even close the schools for them and everyone is still expected to come into work ;)

    Anyone down in the Carolinas have a DV camera they can use to take some footage and post it here? I don't have a digital camcorder, but I do plan on taking a few snap shots with my still camera if it gets bad here. They're expecting it to be in my neck of the woods Friday between 3pm and 7pm...

    EDIT:: Stewe beat me to the post :grr: :D

    Hurricane Floyd threatened us here a few years back and a lot of people tried to evacuate. So the highway became a parking lot. Since that fiasco, most Floridians probably don't even think about hurricanes too much anymore. We seem to have forgotten Andrew. :( But, I would say that lately (last few years) the Carolinas have had more experience than us. Seems like they all hit right there.

    Oh...and as for snow....that's why I live in Florida. Keep that crap up north! In '89 it snowed here in Jacksonville and just enough stuck on the roads to make 'em ice over. They shut the entire city down for 2 days! Funniest thing I've ever seen. Bunch of rednecks sliding all over the roads. :lol: Aaaahhh.....good times.

    Yea, I remember Andrew... Nasty, nasty stuff. Actually, my youngest son was born not too long after that hurricane and we named him Andrew... ;)

    I love the snow! Just hate driving in it and shoveling it. I couldn't imagine not having a winter that's not white and football really doesn't kick in for me untill the snow is flying, the wood stove is burning and I'm in my sweatshirt. Keep in mind that I've always lived in NY State.

    ---

    Update:: According to The Weather Channel, the Carolina's are starting to feel the effects of the hurricane which is now about 100 miles off-shore and is a "strong category 2" with 105mph winds.

    It's getting somewhat windy now up here, anyone doing any last minute preparations up in md or va? My parents seem to be actually doing something than complaining it's nothing big. I'm debating on whether or not if I should bring my system in the basement (fear of tornados) but then there's floods.. ah gotta love weather :sigh:

    Looks like from the latest visable satellite image that Isabel is just about to make landfall on the Outer Banks of N. Carolina.

    I'm taking tomarrow off of work so that I don't get caught in the remnents of Isabel when it gets to my area. As you can see, I've got a long way to drive to get home ;)

    Good luck to everyone in the mid-atlantic states, I hope everything will be okay for you! Just remember, we want pics! :D
