I don't remember where the cut off is for sure but right now the hurricane is around 140-145 mph. So it is nothing to sneeze at. Jeff and I got most of our hurricane shutters already closed (wow, it makes the place dark). I will get up tomorrow and finish it which will take a few minutes. Conditions aren't expected to get bad until tomorrow afternoon at the earliest.

Don, Jake, and others in the southern eastern coast of the U.S.: You are in my thoughts and prayers. My girlfriend has family, several cousins, in southern and central Florida. We will be holding all of you in our hearts. Please let us know you are all right when you can.

http://DShetterly.photosite.com/Hurricane_Frances/

Here is a link to a photo album I started online. Right now it has a few pictures of our house "before the storm". As I get to take pictures and hoping that I still have electricity & a DSL connection, than I will continue to upload more pictures. Of course it all depends on what happens later tonight and tomorrow.

Right now, they are still guessing what it is going to do. There are possibilities that we may miss the worst of it and then there are possibilities that we might get hit by one side of the eye wall. No way to tell but we are prepared as much as we can be. We've got the shutters up on the house and plywood covering the door. Food is stocked and we've got Ice ready to go in a cooler plus a lot of water!

It is dark with the shutters closed. Currently we are getting some stronger winds and had one gust up to 34 mph. A couple of trees not too far away were knocked down and I have a feeling that was a down draft and not just the wind. It is actually a decent temperature day out for us and the air is fairly dry. Pressure is beginning to fall though.

Anyway, as long as we have electricity and a internet connection, I will be around. Otherwise, if we lose both of those things, than as soon as they come back, I will be back.

Now would someone give this hurricane a good kick in the butt and push it on out of here! It does look like it is supposed to hang around for a couple of days.

Don

Don,
keep informing us. I hope that you will be on safe all time and that wind and damage wouldn't become so big as they are predicting.
I’ll try to kick, as hard as possible, that bad Frances right in the but.

PS. I also hope that your neighbour didn’t forget to put on safe that happy dog from one of your pictures \:\) .

Ivo

We are pretty close to the Miami Airport and very close to where the National Hurricane Center is at.

It looks like the neighbor took the dog inside. Glad they did because the cops would have had to come up and pick my neighbors butt up off the sidewalk. That poor dog is so lonely because they hardly every give it any attention. I so badly want to cut the fence out and let the dog run away.

Anyway, we will stay as safe as we can. We still have power but have heard that 38,000 in our county are already out of power.

Don

Don, Rich,

Stay safe. Please do keep us posted as long as you can. These things always seem so far away, until I know someone going through it.

Thanks,

Joe

Right now it is just teasing us. Moving about 4 or 5 mph and not much going on. I have noticed that weatherbug shows the humidity has gone way up now.

Anyway, wish it would just get itself moving! Get it over with because this is going to drive everyone nuts staying shut up inside.

Don
