Assuming the power doesn't go out. D*will most likely be down although mine is pretty good through most storms.
Be sure to keep a chain saw handy in case of flying sharks?

Back in the day, I remember thunderstorms, lightning, and power outages. My parents lived on the east side of town and severe weather had a knack for hitting the west. So we would have power to run the TV, lights etc., but power would get knocked out for the TV stations and the cable company which were on the west side of town.
And yes we were the last family to get a VCR on the block, so there was nothing recorded either.

"Bring out yer dead!".."Wait I'm not dead yet!"..(Sound Austrian here) "WRONG !!" (You know what happens next..)

Good advice.

Yeah Steve, we are looking good. Just some low areas that flood in bad rains should be in trouble and maybe coastal areas with these extra-high tides that we were gonna have anyway. I think i will be ok where i am, good luck up there. Still, you never know when the power might go out, i could live without that happening.

never take life seriously

The morning news said it lost strength near Cuba.

I don't know how you guys deal with the nasty weather that Florida is subjected too on a regular basis.
You're a helluva lot tougher than I am.

Its not so much the weather,it's the inhabitants that make it nasty,and yes the heat and the occasional threat of being blown away is also there.

Well, out of admiration for you 2, I didn't wanna go there...but...
Maybe it IS the weather that has an effect on the inhabitants?

I was in Key West during Hurricane Floyd in 1987. It wasn't a very powerful hurricane but it damn sure got my attention. I was in the barracks at Truman Annex about 200 yards from the ocean when it hit.

Watched Excision, a nice little film with a little well done gore. The last ten minutes is where the movie picks up, although the slow build up to that is entertaining as well.

Annalynne McCord was good in this. I had not noticed previously, but she was also in Day of the Dead.

Well I guess Wes couldn't wait to see what was on the other side. RIP.

And those movies we thought might show up on Netflix will be showing up on Hulu instead.
