    Re: Tropical Storm FAY is Heading to Florida !

    I don't think it will be that bad where I am. I'm hoping the schools in my area don't decide to close for the day since thay are just starting back on Monday. What a great way to start the fist week of school, with a weather day we have to make up already. I'm just expecting a lot of rain and wind. We are at the top of FL, so by the time it makes it to us it will have lost a lot of strength.

    Yep, we're ready for it... I remember the pic on the WDW website of Mickey in front of the castle with the words "The weather's all right down here!" after the 2004 hurricane season.

    I need to go get water, batteries, gas and cash today just in case the power goes out for a while. I hope it stays on the West coast though - sorry guys over there.

    I am so screwed. I'm like 20-25 minutes from the Gulf.

    *edit*

    Now they're showing it hitting land just south of me.

    Meh. Not to sound like the typical, jaded, storm weathered Floridian, but I'm not expecting much from this. Unless it does some really dramatic strengthening before it gets here it shouldn't be too bad (as storms go anyway). the biggest impact it's gonna have is the chaos it's causing for the start of the new school year tomorrow in many area counties.

    I just hope it doesn't get bad until Tuesday, because I'm supposed to be going to the rays game tomorrow night.

    And if you don't have any?

    I picked up some bottled water, and there is already plenty of flashlights and canned goods here.

    I agree Harry, I never worry unless it's over a Cat 2. My only issue is I'm right at the tip of Tampa Bay, so I'm worried about Storm surge, although living on the 2nd floor helps, it still doesn't mean we won't have a problem.

    Most hurricanes Cat. 1 or 2 are really just bad thunderstorms and I've actually seen worse up north.

    Had to laugh though, my non native boyfriend is freaking out. "We have to get insurance, what about the TV/computers?, will the big screen fit in the car?" It's difficult to explain to someone whose never been through a hurricane, what to worry about and what to stay calm for.

    Not to make fun of you halltd, but I find it funny that people need to "get water." All you need to do is fill empty containers with water from your faucet. If it's filtered, even better ... and you don't have to spend a lot of money on water.

    It's already started to rain on and off here in Miami. Good luck everyone ... especially all of you on the west coast.
