    Hurricane Bertha (115 mph) has intensified rapidly.

    Bertha, as of 5 p.m. EDT,, 7/7/08 was centered about 730 miles ENE of the northern Leeward Islands and moving toward the WNW at 12 mph. A turn to a more NW track with a reduction in forward speed is expected over the next couple of days.

    The hurricane may grow in size as its forward motion decelerates.

    It still appears as if Bertha will eventually take a more northerly course and miss the East Coast of the U.S. Bermuda, however, could be threatened. Residents of the island are advised to pay close attention to the hurricane's progress.

    Dare I mention the "hunker" word? :D

    Dawn you are very brave mentioning the "H" word :)

    It does see a bit early though :(









    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.

    This is a formal request. DO NOT use the "hunker" word in my presence!

    Bertha is heading toward Bermuda as of this morning's forecast. It's not yet known if she will make landfall. She is reportedly losing some wind speed, but that's not saying much as she's a Cat 3!

    It's not really early if you think that the season is June through November. :sigh;

    I have to tell you what we were told by a shop owner at MCO the other night. He said he HOPES the hurricane hits FL! Why I asked? Because people get stuck at the airport and need to buy clothes

    Obviously he has never experienced a hurricane..stupid man.
