    If we can just get through the next five weeks or so, we *should* be OK. October hurricanes are rare (but still happen). Hopefully, this is the last one we will have to deal with until late summer '06.

    From what I can gather, it sound like there may be more sand on some of the beaches than there was two days ago. Although some areas will no doubt look horrible. Overall, I think we seemed to fair remarkably well.

    I'll be down in about six weeks and can't wait!

    :D Tuned into the weather channel after getting home and luckily they said Tropical Depression 13 was no more. Apparently it had dissipated. Thank goodness so we can still make our trip to Inlet Beach Saturday, although 14 is out there but looks a good way off.

    Remember that Hurricane season runs through the end of November. To say that the water is cooler then so we do not normally get any that late is only wishful thinking, and we are all hoping for no more storms. The reality is that none of what we hope matters. ("Wish in one hand, crap in the other, and see which hand fills up first." - Bad Santa)

    We typically don't have storms on the second or third day of the season in June, but this year we did. The Gulf doesn't have to be 90 degrees for a hurricane to be fueled. Forecasters have predicted many storms this year, and so far, they have been very accurate. The reality is that today there is no storm heading our way. What lies ahead remains to be seen, but let's not put our heads in the sand if another rears it's head and approaches us.
