My wish for Wilma & our DU family in harm's way
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 03:04 AM by SoCalDem
I have no meteorological degree, but I am trying to start a "vibe" for a NEW path for Wilma... Let's all concentrate on the "ideal" path...

We've had enough hurricanes this year.. Enough is enough.. I am not eager to see people lose more and I certainly do not want to see jebbie's ugly mug on TV or his idiot brother in the blue checkered shirt...handing out water to hired extras :(

My path is crudely drawn, but here's hopin'..

Or at least for folks to start making plans to get out. My Gf is in Orlando on a vacation with friends right now. She's supposed to leave by Fri. I hope she doesn't get stuck.

She needs to start calling the airliines NOW to find out what they are advising

7. They are driving.
On Thursday nite/Friday morning they are supposed to start driving back up from Orlando to NY. But she is visiting our friend in Sarasota first. I hope she doesn't go.

She would be driving closer to it...


If the storm stays on it's current track Orlando should be (relatively) fine....

10. The scary thing about Florida is that it's a narrow state
so a broadside by a biggie, affects east and west coasts at the same time..You have to go north, and then the roads get all jammed up..

Time to visit Northwest Alabama

Dad lives in Tampa, and I can't contact him before the hurricane because he refuses to give me his phone number for divorce-related reasons... :scared:

8. Why, thank you, SoCalDem!
You're hired!

Thinking Wilma - the sportscar edition.

Look at that thing take the corners - what a sweet ride, motor singing, great traction, downshift, power into the curve, pedal to the metal and it's OUTTA here!

Just in case it doesn't work, please stay safe everyone.
