    Re: Hurricane Katrina

    Deep breaths everyone...it is stressful and anxiety makes us all on edge. Try and keep your thoughts on those that live in these areas and hope they have the strength to secure things and get where they need to be. You cannot wish for this storm to "hit" one place or another. Nature does what it wants and we will have to adapt. Here's to our friends...God speed.

    Re: Hurricane Katrina

    Eglin AFB and Duke and Hurlburt Fields have gone to Hurricane condition four. I'm expecting to hear all the planes going out some time late tommorrow unless the track changes a lot.

    I'm still racing Sandestin triathlon tommorrow morning. After that, we're not sure what we've going to do yet. Probably make sure all the clothes and dishes are washed.

    :eek: We pulled that up at the office a few minutes ago. That doesn't look promising at all.

    But, in reality it hasn't turned northward yet... :confused:

    Re: Hurricane Katrina

    Exactly. I remember before Dennis when one person on the board was so stressed that she said things she didn't mean and later issued several apologies. Let's all be nice to each other and realize that some people might say things they don't mean out of stress and anxiety. Just take a deep breath and be understanding before you post something that might hurt or offend another.

    The NHC track will change at 5pm. All the models have shifted west since 11am. My guess is the NHC will move to around the Mississippi area.

    Thanks for posting this link again. I know River Otter had it up yesterday somewhere else, but now I don't have to hunt!

    Re: Hurricane Katrina

    The fact we are even having another hurricane thread is beyond belief. No wonder people are stressed and short-tempered.

    This reminds me of attending a baseball game and getting struck by a foul ball. What are the odds? 1 in 100,000? So you go to a game month later, only to be struck once again by a foul ball. A year later, you attend another game, only to get popped AGAIN. That is exactly what this reminds me of.

    That new track is only about 40 miles further west than Ivan's landfall location. We all saw what that storm did to SoWal.
