    Johnie, wdwgrandma & uscwest and anyone else on the Eastern seaboard.....stay safe this weekend with Irene heading your way. Us here on the Florida Gulf coast will feel minimal effects (rain..some wind) of the storm if it stays on this course.

    Make sure you stock up on batteries, non perishable food, water (1 gallon per person per day), radio, etc. Make sure your cell phones are fully charged, that you have full gas tanks in your car, that you have cash on hand and full propane tanks for your grille if you have one.

    If you lose power it could be days/weeks before it comes back on depending on the severity of the storm.

    :( stay safe everyone









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Looks like it will my way on Sun morning. You can already tell it's coming because the temperature has dropped. It's actually quite nice out right now.

    The current forecast has Irene going directly over JFK International as a strong Cat. 1 hurricane.

    8.25.11 5PM update:

    Irene looks like it will weaken to a Cat.2 before coming ashore in North Carolina. As it continues to travel up the East coast it will still be a Cat.1 once it hits New York right in between Manhattan and JFK.

    Just been watching sky news and it is saying that new Yorkers are being told to evacuate, surely this isn't true.
