Looks like this one's going to hit central Florida... if not head on, a glancing blow. Although still a ways off, could Hukilau be effected by a hurricane... ? A catagory 3 could do considerable damage to the area it is close to I would figure. I'm hoping this one and future one's miss Florida altogether... but is there a plan involving Hukilau if a hurricane makes the event not happen due to widespread power outages, damage to the event locations and damage to the city? Refunds?



Let's hope nothing major comes from this nasty storm... I will be crying because Hukilau doesn't happen and crying because I spent most of my summer preparing for it...

Go away Frances!

I hope this prediction comes true;
"Forecasters said it had become unlikely that Frances would head to the south and the Florida Keys, instead noting computer models that were beginning to show more of a northerly or northwesterly turn, possibly missing Florida altogether."
I am talking about the "possibly missing Florida altogether" part.

It's still to early to tell where this thing is going but the way my summer has gone so far I predict it is coming straight for me!!!

A catergory 4 and much bigger than the last one.

Florida hasn't even finished cleaning up from Charlie.

At least we know when they are coming unlike our California Ohana.

Hmmmm ... still too early to tell on this one. My guess is that it'll cut north well before hitting the coast. I think Flounder is right; it's gonna go after him. The man is a hurricane magnet. Don't invite him for drinks under any circumstances.

Still, unless it scores a direct hit with major damage, it's unlikely that things won't be mostly functional by Hukilau. Even after Andrew we managed to get things limping along within three weeks or so (except that I was living in a house without a roof for awhile that time around).

Hurricane preparedness note: Hurricane shutters work extremely well until the roof comes off - after which the windows break from the inside out.

Cheers!

SSSHHhhhhh!

I have been very blessed in my travels and been just missed, or just before or after Hurricanes in my trips to Mexico. I assume they will not bother me in Florida either.

They are starting early this year, eh?

They are evacuating in Fort Lauderdale. This thing is heading straight toward our holy ground. I emailed Kern this morning to get his thoughts on it. He will be able to compare with past storms and give some idea of what we all can expect. I'll let you know.

We need a High pressure front to come from out of nowhere and push Francis away!
