    Okay ladies.. just watched part of the news conference, and they have closed schools on Friday, and they are already starting to evacuate. They say that this one is twice as big as the one that hit here 3 weeks ago.

    I don't know how much more I can handle!! The last storm made my bald babies a nervous mess. This time around I am a nervous wreck!

    I live in central Florida, and they say it is headed for us. Its times like these that I wish I could tap my heels together and repeat.. "Theres no place like home" then I woul be back in Kansas City Mo.

    Oh, but then again, there are those tricky tornadoes up there!!

    We are going to try to stick it out at home again. Wish us luck. I will not go to a shelter and leave my kitties and bullie behind to take care of themselves! Just in case any of you were wondering why I would do such a thing as stay at home during one of these monsters!

    We are watching this thing VERY closely. Unfortunately, it shows it hitting us head on! My job is closing down tomorrow to give us an opportunity to get our homes boarded up.

    We have decided to stick it out at home. I just couldn't live with myself if I left my pet kids behind and something happened to them. Since I have no where to go that I would be able to take them with me, we are going to sit it out at home.

    My husband is boarding up our house as I type this. He has his own construction company, so he is taking a few days off to get our home prepared for this monster.

    Any of you out there that are in this part of the country, take care and be safe. I will be onthe puter for as long as I can!

    HERE WE GO AGAIN......

    Keep us posted on how things go, sphynxluver. My prayers are with you and your family.

    My daughter's cruise came back a day early to Miama and fortunately, she was able to get a flight out of Miama today. She doesn't know how, because she said all the airlines were booked (she even booked a rental car to leave the area but cancelled it) but somehow they found seats for her. That was a relief for me.

    ever listen to 105.5? this morning they had the weather man from fox4 and he said that we will be getting the winds and rain but that he didnt think we would get the brunt of it. we may get the flooding and such but because its so big that we could be effect by it. in other words, no one knows LOL we are staing here. (I live in Ft Myers too)

    i wish u guys luck... and be safe!

    we never get hurricanes in nova scotia, EXCEPT for that NASTY crap with juan that hit last year.... it freaked us all out. And it was so bad they took Juan off the list of names for hurricans. It totally devistated Halifax and our parks.

    U have all my (and my babies) wishes.

    well i think it might miss us in fort myers but we will still get high winds etc... but the thing we r the most worried about is the tornados thats what my neighboorhood got hit by last time... but it also has went from a catogory 4 to a 2 soo thats good.... and it kinda looks like its falling apart....we havnt really had any kinda rain all day i think it rained 2 times today and it was just a lil bit not hard or anything soooo.... but tomarrow miight be different....

    I just watched the latest news update, and they are telling us to prepare for wind gusts up to 115mph, with sustained winds @ 75-90mph. The thing that really troubles me right now is the flooding.... They are saying that the county that I live in could get 20 inches of rain dropped on us, and there are no more sand bags!!!! We went and picked some up yesterday, and they would only give us 15 of them. Went back today to ty and get some more and noone had any!!!

    The flooding here is going to be severe! The winds are statring to pick up where I am, but we have boarded up and are staying safely inside our home at this point!

    Take care any of you that is in this monsters path!!

    I hope to chat with all of you VERY soon!!

    Take care, everyone in the Florida area. We up north will be keeping a watch on the progression of the hurricane. Many people I know in my area know someone who lives in Florida. Some have evacuated. Some have not.

    Be safe everyone!
