Keys bracing for IKE

Yesterday the mandatory evac-ed tourists & guests.
Today, residents.
Still, no one knows where he's going yet.
MSNBC just showed winds on Provenciales, Turks, & Caicos.
Here we go again. I think I'll get wind & rain, but not direct hit. But I've had enough this year! Good Luck, ya'll.


Location in the state of Florida

There was a tornado in Allentown, Pa. which is 45 min. from me. It is unusual to have a tornado . Thankfully, it did not come to where I live.

Just checking back after a very long day. Looks like we dodged another one, but that always means - Who'll be next?
Looks like Hanna didn't do too much either, thank God.

Now Texas is bracing, hard. At least we're not looking at a 4 or 5, but, it's big. Once it makes landfall in Galveston, we will get the rain and wind. It's projected to go north through kaufman county and hunt county. I'm in hunt county, just south of Greenville. At least we will get some much needed rain, but, I'm not liking the idea of tornadoes in the forecast as a possibility!! I'm praying hard for all that have homes down South and ones that have, for some reason, decided to forgo evacuating. My sisters dad and stepmom are under mandatory evac in Orange county. They are driving up today, nothing like the last minute, huh? They did the same with Rita a few years back. To all in the way, I pray all will be well when it's over!!!

We'll be fine, I'm more worried about all you down there. Are you completely out of it? Are you getting any of the wind now?

Looking at the sattelite pic at noon today, looks like an alien about to take a bite out of Texas. That is my son's words, lol.
