The early path of this hurricane is eerily similar to Andrew...
Andrew was alittle farher north of the islands
Yeah but it seems to be moving pretty slow, so unless it picks up any speedit should not effect the game.
It's not the game we should be worried about. Its anyone who may live in its path IF it does in fact hit La. My aunt lost her home in Andrew. It wasn't the wind but it left 8 feet of water in her first floor, homeowners didn't cover floods or natural disasters but she got fed aid (said she felt like a democrat living off the gov't. teet!) I was glad she could find humor in the situation because 2 of her horses died as well
Mr. Peabody's horses survived. Those surfing lessons paid off.
I had a friend that lost 1/2 his hotel back in 1995 when Hurricane Opal hit Destin.

I like the graphics better
Most likely, this storm will turn north before reaching Florida. Most storms that slow down before reaching the gulf stream take a sharp right turn on the east side of the Bahamas. Andrew was different because the storm itself was moving so fast. Andrew was also the only hurricane to hit Florida on the east coast south of Jacksonville in the last 40 years (though some have hit as tropical storms). As it stays north of Puerto Rico and Hispanola, it is likely to miss Florida and Louisiana. The Carolinas may not be so lucky.
That being said, Hurricanes are nothing to mess around with if you are not prepared. Charley hit a city that was not really told to evacuate, while Tampa was empty (my brother was in the anticipated path, but was spared). Look at what happened. If you have coastal property, prepare now so you can batton down the hatches if the time comes.
Gentlemen, I rescind all my earlier posts about the ducks
They do have a chance ...
Their secret weapon is ... Francis :shock:
Oh ... the humility
who do the ducks play?
the only storm in Tiger Stadium Sept 4th is LSU putting the hammer down on some pac 10ers.
