A little about my self -

I joined weather Underground in August of 2005 right after they opened the blogging feature. I have been a weather hobbyist since the middle 60's when I lived on the west coast of Florida, north of the Tampa Bay area. I currently live in a small community in central Illinois.

I have been through numerous Hurricanes during my life time. The worse being Hurricane Camille in August 17,1969, A Cat 5, where the eye passed over the location I was at. That being Biloxi, Ms when I was in the USAF stationed at Keesler AFB.

I found this ....

"This storm wasn't officially a hurricane as it did not originate in the tropics - but it was certainly exceptional.
In the Beaufort scale of wind force, Hurricane Force (Force 12) is defined as a wind of 64 knots or more, sustained over a period of at least 10 minutes. Winds sustained 80-100 knots for over an hour."

You mean even MORE rain!
It is 25 years today since the hurricane that hit us, as a hurricane, and killed 18 people, uprooted millions of trees and damaged thousands of buildings.


Well hope that won't happen anytime soon .. What was the name of the Hurricane ?? do you remember ??

Sandi .. So glad your feeling better .. I know the feeling of trying to take it easy when your use to being so active .. but that will only last a few weeks.. and then you will be up to doing most things again .. except for the no lifting .. and please follow those directions .. I hurt my self after a back operation by lifting a 1/2 gallon of milk from the frig..

Morning Wabit!

Oh, yes, I am beginning to feel better. Hard to believe it is not quite a week yet.
I promise to be good. At the moment I am learning to be 'lazy', something I am not used to!

Hey, I don't like the track in post #13!

Hi {{{wab}}} - that's good news :)

It's finally cooling down here, wonderful breeze and temps in - 80's, all windows open, no need for A/C and dogs are outside all the time. NICE!

And as always, good to watch a storm that probably won't affect us in FL
