Hurricane Ivan

Recommended Posts

The track I saw this morning changed Ivan from going into the Gulf to going over FL again. It's not looking good. B|

I also heard on the radio this morning that he/it is now a cat 5 hurricane.

Hold on down there. Hold on tight. [:/]

For the record, I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT!!!!, they just named the hurricane after me. :):P


I don't know about that, the chaser planes have picked up strange transmissions from the storm that may be post whoring;)
I am not the man. But the man knows my name...and he's worried

I saw it too. Central FL has taken a beating this year. Not good at all.



I just talked to a friend in Deland. He said he's supposed to get power back around Tuesday. That's when Ivan might be here again. I feel so sorry for the people in that area.

Sorry to make light of the destruction. I know several people in Florida and they are taking a beating.

But anyway.....Damned weather, I guess my Vector will take even longer to get now [:/]

Just had to throw that in there for VectorMark and Egon. Of course by the time they get power again, it will be burried in the posts.

I am not totally useless, I can be used as a bad example.

Edit to add: By the way, this hurricane season has sucked ass. Global warming, possibly?



Hurricane seasons seem to have cycles too - 25 'good years' followed by 25 'bad years'. We're about 8 - 10 years into the "bad 25 years" ... something about strong/weak thermohaline circulation.

You know hurricanes used to only be given female names? The names for this year:
Alex
Bonnie
Charley
Danielle
Earl
Frances
Gaston
Hermine
Ivan
Jeanne
Karl
Lisa
Matthew
Nicole
Otto
Paula
Richard
Shary
Tomas
Virginie
Walter

And there's your useless bit of hurricane trivia.

I just hope the MREs and wind up radio/light I ordered get to me before it hits.

I got so sick of canned salmon and tuna during Frances and I forgot to buy a battery powered radio before it hit. I ended up putting my clock radio on my computer's UPS supply so I could hear the emergency reports.

According to the British Parachute Association it's cleared to do 15 second delays ;)

From the BPA operations manual:

Category 5

Has demonstrated the ability to perform two consecutive stable delayed openings of ten seconds, maintaining a heading and counting throughout.

I'm new to FL. Is it normally this bad?



No! I don't think the same area has ever been hit by hurricanes 3 times in 6 weeks before. Usually they go off in other directions and one will hit us, one the Carolinas, one in Texas, etc. This is really weird.

Man! I can't believe people actually choose to live in FL. When we get bad weather here, at least we don't have to leave our homes.



I hate living in FL but I want to raise my kids around family members and I can't get them to move!
