Hurricane Ike

Post  mjsmittyjr on Fri Sep 05, 2008 11:23 am

Everyone from Florida to Texas needs to keep a eye on this one, winds are at 125 MPH and expected to increase to a Cat 4 by Monday AM. The path depending on the prevailing fronts at the time it nears Florida, will take it either east of Florida or west toward the Gulf of Mexico. Rant

I don't know. I guess it would depend on the type of house I lived in. Concrete roof maybe! Laugh

Ike

This bites!!!!

I don't know which I'd rather. Being stuck in my own home with no power and nothing to do, or stuck in a hotel hundreds of miles away with 2 kids and a few dogs in a one room hotel (with power) but still with nothing to do!!!

I voted Maybe since I take each hurricane into consideration.. Each one is different. If it's a 2 or below, I'll stay for sure.. If it's a 4-5, I'm leaving.. Depends on the stats if it's a 3 and where it's going to hit land at.

We may miss the bullet on this one (so far)

Looks like we may miss Hurricane Ike if all weather steering systems stay in place and play out like the forecasters predict.
All of the forecasters are predicting the Texas Gulf Coast.
