    We got some of the rain and winds up to 21mph here in Orlando today, but I think tomorrow and Thursday will be a tad worse if it strengthens.

    Watching the news this morning here in Fort Myers I thought they said this little storm was going to skirt the coast but not much will come from it. I also know what you mean about more than your fair share of water. We need more and :mickey:

    Well, the latest report has Ophelia coming bumping off the coast and going back into the Atlantic, strengthening to a hurricane and then who knows....the models are all over the place...

    This graphic just goes to show us that it truly is impossible to predict these storms... I just hope Ophelia doesn't choose to follow the "black dotted road" - that path goes right through my yard! Hopefully she will decide to stay in the Atlantic where the weather is much nicer, and leave FL and GA alone.

    They keep saying here in Orlando that it might be coming back to us. I highly doubt it though, I think it's going to stay out in the ocean *crosses fingers*
