Isidore isabore
First year of living in Florida during hurricane season: Oh my God! It's near Cuba now! Keep Channel 8 on 24-hours a day for all breaking news. Pack up the car. Get the pet crates. Gather all the insurance papers. We're off to Georgia...

Second year of living in Florida during hurricane season: Crap! Get to the store. We need tons of water -- let's stand here 'til they bring more cases out. A two hour line for batteries isn't that long, I guess... Grab all the Vegetarian Vegetable soup you can find and I'll go get the granola bars and meet you back here.

Third year of living in Florida during hurricane season: E-mail friends and family and let them know you aren't going to die. Curse GTE for blaming their crappy phone service on this "thing" they claim is a tropical storm, even though a real storm in Oklahoma could kick its ass down the peninsula and back.

Sixth year of living in Florida during hurricane season: Category 2 at peak? What a wussy. It better not freakin' knock out my DirecTV -- it's a football weekend! Thank God OU has a bye week. Honey, we need to go to Target. I'm out of Tootsie Roll Pops again...

You better bring your stuff Isidore. 'Cuz I'm ready for ya'. I have a whole liquor cabinet on standby.

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Keep on going up to South Carolina.I'll party with you while you're here ;)

Hurricanes are God's way of making it up to Florida schoolchildren for the lack of snow. In the six years I lived in FL we only had one 'Hurricane Day' but I remember it fondly.

Jimmy Buffett once wrote regarding hurricanes:

" If it's my last meal on earth, I'm not going to meet my maker on a belly-full of G-Damn Spam!"

Nice to see that you've finally gotten into the groove of our second pastime here in the state "Amateur" Hurricane Prediction

As of the 8 am advisory, Tampa has a 4% probability of being hit by Isidore between Now and 2 AM monday. That may change come the next advisory in about 15 minutes.

Hey, as of the 11:00 advisory your probability just dropped to 2%.

Time to root for the Miami Hurricanes as we play Boston College.

The hurricane hoopla does get kinda alarmist, but then, you go through an Andrew type deal and it is hell if you aint prepared.

Oh I'd never stick around for an Andrew-type of event. There would be vapor trails!
