    You know I love that orange, even though that path is bad for Gainesville. :sosad: All of the paths are unfortunately bad for someone.

    Well, it didn't take long for somebody to come up with the obvious lead for the storm story...the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes, "South Floridians won't be walking on sunshine when Katrina and her waves crash ashore later this week." ;-)

    I always liked that song, but my favorite of theirs was "Red Wine and Whiskey." I'll need some of both as I watch the Weather Channel this weekend. Take care and be safe, y'all.

    earl, you better load up the cattle trailers with all your crap. I hear a storm may be making some new Gulf front homes in your hood. If it does hit, and I hope it does not, we will see how well those plastic dunes hold at Lee Perry's house in Gulf Trace. I have a feeling that we will be looking at orange clay soon.

    If it stays to the east of us, that would be better...right? Isn't there a good/bad side? Each storm that has hit in the last two years has come in to the west...except Cindy? Education time.

    Usually the chant is West is best - east is beast - to the west of the storm is better.

    Re: TS Katrina

    West may be "best" as it relates to the worst of the surge and a "hit" but I am afraid with the beating the SoWal dunes/beaches have taken in the past 12-14 months that being anywhere in the "cone" is not going to be good.

    I vote for orange or purple (sorry to the people in those paths). We are hoping for the best and that the TS just dies (not likely) but at worst it helps push more sand up onto the SoWal beaches :clap_1: :clap_1: :clap_1:

    It looks like we will know by Monday evening.

    Re: TS Katrina

    Just got this off of the web....www.crownweather.com/tropical


    "....THE GUIDANCE HAS COME INTO SOMEWHAT BETTER AGREEMENT THAT KATARINA WILL TURN NORTHWARD IN RESPONSE TO A DEEPENING TROUGH OVER THE CENTRAL UNITED STATES...ALTHOUGH THERE IS STILL A NOTABLE SPREAD. TRACK MODEL GUIDANCE RESPONDS TO THIS PATTERN WITH A SPREAD OF LANDFALLS IN FLORIDA FROM THE KEYS TO NORTH OF LAKE OKEECHOBEE. AFTER CROSSING FLORIDA.....

    THE COLD TOPS AND THE INNER WIND CORE SUGGEST THE POSSIBILITY OF STRENGTHENING. BASED ON THIS...THE INTENSITY FORECAST CALLS FOR KATRINA TO BECOME A HURRICANE BEFORE LANDFALL. KATRINA SHOULD WEAKEN WHILE SLOWLY CROSSING THE FLORIDA PENINSULA...THE RE-INTENSIFY UNDER LIGHT SHEAR CONDITIONS OVER THE GULF OF MEXICO."

    If it goes northward to hit Lake Okeechobee we will be west of the hit but this storm seems "flaky" and moving very slow (8 mph) and anything is possible at this point. If it stay as a slow moving storm, it will produce alot of rain (based on what the Dr said last night on the weather channel).

    Way to go Lollygal! I was thinking the same thing when I saw your post.

    Here's hoping Katrina stays on the east coast and heads north. Will be down in October and don't want it to be any worse than it already is - hot temps, biting flies, crowds, etc. :D

    I don't remember which storm shot up throught Mexico Beach area last year, but during that storm, the sun was shining in SoWal and the wave action was slim to none. Maybe that is why I cannot remember the storm's name.

    Re: TS Katrina

    Just so there's no confusion, the purple line has moved from going out in the Atlantic to hitting west of us. My vote is no longer with purple!

    For anyone interested, this link is to a forum for weather professionals and enthusiasts. You can get a little more in depth information than the NHC provides most of the time. It can get a little hard to read because these folks get hyped up about and look forward to big storms.....they see it from a completely different perspective than we do.

    Re: TS Katrina

    All the models seem to have been trending eastward for the past day, and almost all of them seem to be saying somewhere between Tyndall AFB and mouth of the Suwannee River for a second Gulf of Mexico Landfall. So not too bad for SoWal, but the already erosion prone Cape San Blas could take some damage, and if you're an Apalachicola Bay oyster fan, grab some of them now, since they're smack in the line of the cone right now.

    Why can't I pick up your station on 30A? I need more conservative true patriot americans voices in my car.

    You GO boyyy! I bet Sweet Al would love to have The Earl on his show. Maybe it could start with an interview of The Earl? He could expose the flaws in our thinking and the error of our ways. How about a debate featuring The Earl and Comm. Meadows?

    Excellent programming idea...:clap_1:
