    Tropical Storm Katrina

    Hello, everybody! I'm certainly getting nervous about tomorrow evening. Right now I'm under a Hurricane Warning for this storm!!!! In fact, even though it's only going to be a minimal Cat. 1 hurricane when it does make landfall late tomorrow night, it's not really the winds that is the major issue this time. The fact of the matter is, it has something in common with last year's Hurricane Frances!!! In both cases, they were slow moving. And, since Katrina is going to be moving so slowly across the state, there are predictions of 4-20 inches of rain coming from this thing!!!!!!! Ouch!!!!!

    I may not be back on fo a bit, because scattered power outages are also in the offing. In fact, the worst of the matter is that if any of you guys go to the National Hurricane Center's website, and look at the forecast track, you may notice that where I live (Palm Beach County) is basically where it is going to make landfall!!!!

    I'm just hoping fo the best!!!

    I don't like these tropical storms/hurricanes at all. I'm away from my family (im in college 6 hours away from home) and my parents live in a major flood zone. Also, my dad works for a utility company, FPL, so everytime a major storm comes in he has to spend the whole storm at work. That means my mother is left by herself at home with my three dogs!!

    you guys have all my prayers - I'm watching the weather site all the time - please keep safe and sound. Keep us posted when and if you can- I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say how worried we are about all of you. I remember getting your updates last year- I always felt better hearing you were ok

    That goes for all our Florida friends impacted by the storm - Please keep safe and let us know how things are - if ya can

    Slade is in that area too, I think he may be evacuating up here to us, I'll let you all know when we hear. Even here in Orlando we are slated to get 3-5 inches of rain, YIKES!

    Just called my mom. My dad is finally at work and she's just getting things off the floor now and away from the windows to be on the safe side. Just hoping she doesn't loose power so I can keep in touch with her. Now there are other systems developing around the islands!!!!!!!

    I said it in another thread when I first came on these forums:
    If I have to move again because of a hurricane, this time it will be to California!
    We lost almost everything last year. . . .Give me earthquakes and Disneyland anytime.
    Stay dry and hope for the best, South Florida!

    So far so good, everybody. I'm right in the area where some of the worst rains and heaviest winds are hitting, and I still have power, knock on wood!!! Well, after the next bout of winds, the only thing left to go through is heavy rainfall. It already made landfall about a half an hour to an hour ago in Hollywood. Well, I'll keep you guys posted as much as I can until I lose power, which I still think will happen at some point, since a lot of other residents of Delray Beach, Boca Raton, and Boynton Beach, already have!!!

    Thanks again for all of the good wishes, everyone!!!

    Once power is restored (if I even lose it) , I'll let you guys know how it went!!!
