Keeping my fingers crossed for all Gulf Coasters in the path of Dennis. Hope everyone is high and dry by now, and property preparations are done. The expected rainfall alone sounds pretty bad. Take care.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Does anyone know if Jim got back from his trip to the panhandle yesterday?

Enough is enough!!!!! We were rocked last year with hurricanes and I don't want to experience any more.

Even though we're hundreds of miles away from Dennis we had windy conditions which caused a branch to break off a tree and knock the outside mirror off my car. Luckily it didn't break any glass or dent the sheet metal. Some of the most damage is actually on the outer bands of the storm because they sprout tornadoes which do a lot of damage too.

Regards,
Thomas
