    Im not going to be around for the next few days. Hurricane Chuck is putting a damper on thing for me for a short while.

    According to the projected paths that Ive seen for this thing, he's going to either rip through my area or very close to it. As close as 12 miles. I also live very close to the Gulf of Mexico. So I have no choice but to prepare the house and yard for what may come.

    Sorry to hear it. Try putting a tarp over the house with a small stone on each corner. That should hold it down...that or bungie cords.

  3. Good luck Cass. Remember Duct tape does NOT hold up windows!
  4. hey, finally, someone named a hurricane after me! (as unintimidating as my name is)

    but like Joshua said, be safe!

  5. Eep. Good luck man, living near the coast myself, I know the damage of hurricanes.

    Good luck Cass. We'll mind our manners. Keep yourself, your family, and your gear dry!
  11. Stay safe dude, If they call for evacuation, don't be a hero, leave. Stuff can be replaced, but you and your family can't.

    Thanks fellas. I really do appriciate the concern.

    I (the Tampa area) got a very lucky break. As you all know the storm turned east and hit about 115 miles south of Tampa. Lets all just hope Dr Mike and all the people affected in the areas that Chuck did hit are all O.K.

    Mama, glad to hear that you missed the worst of the storm.

    The fact that it turned at the last minute really caught a lot of people unaware, and unprepared. My thoughts and prayers are with those that got hit head on, and unprepared.

    It really shouldnt have caught anyone unaware or unprepared. They had the area that was hit under a hurricane warning too. From what Ive seen on the news, the bulk of the deaths have come from people that didnt heed evacuation warnings. Mostly mobile homes.

    It could have been much worse than 13 deaths though. I guess that's the "good" news if there is any.

  19. When I saw some of the pictures of the devestation, I was astonished at the low death toll. I thought it was going to be much higher, with how off-guard everyone seemed to be at the hurricanes sudden change of direction. Many officials in Florida are saying it's a miracle more weren't killed.
