    All visitors to the Keys have been ordered OUT (this means YOU).

    Our thoughts and prayers are for our Brethren and Sistern in the affected areas.

    Via Con Dios!

    Ernesto was just downgraded to a tropical storm again due to disruption over Haiti and it should travel over a large part of Cuba as well...

    Hurricanes like Ernesto worry me. It's following a similar path as Donna and Charlie, expected to make a turn to the NE, and what comes after C and D?

    Ernesto.

    I started putting up my hurricane shutters this evening. Hope I won't need them.

    On the bright side of things, at least the fossil beds should be given a good shake up.

    I wouldn't know, but based on this projection - not a bad idea. Ernie could hit any or all of the Hurricane State.

    Ernie could be old news there by Thursday - if he doesn't wreck havoc.

    It still could spin up again after it clears cuba. Wind shear should be favorable...

    I wouldn't worry too much about the Panhandle. Contrary to DandyDon's post ALL of the state is not in the projected path. :D

    DandyDon do I need to teach you some Florida georgraphy? :blinking: Perhaps ALL of the peninsula is in the path, the panhandle is not. :wink:
