I'm so lucky we didn't experience those kind of winds here in Massachusetts. Awesome shot and an awesome AC. Congrats.

Unbelievable! Your photo certainly gets the point across of the brute force behind a hurricane.

Congratulations on your AC!

too bad the trees up here in New England weren't aerodynamically designed like the palms!!! the BIG worry here with Irene will be the trees coming down because of the wind and flooding rains!! terrific weather AC!!

Designed to take it!!!...these amazing palm tops airstream the wind right through them. They rarely topple unless they are diseased or have a weakened root system...great shot...

Nice weather shot! Hope you are safe.... Riding my bike along the beach on Wednesday evening here in New Jersey, it felt like the wind was blowing me just as much as it's blowing those palm trees... although I'm sure it's much stronger in the Bahamas!
