Well the lines have started (gas)
Trying to buy gas this morning in Fort Myers Florida took me 2 hours (people worried about Hurricane Wilma). Luckily I don't need to go to lowe's.

1. Good News I Hope
Maybe folks will get out early and free up the highways for those who choose to stay til the last minute. I'm in South MS and my stomach gets all tied up in knots every time I see weather forecasts. Ya'll take care.

2. Oooh greaaaaaaaat
So where the hell is this turkey supposed to hit?!

I'm in Okeechobee country (WHERE I STILL CANNOT FIND ONE BUSHitler SUPPORTER! YES, EVEN THE BIGGEST 'NECKS HERE HATE THE SCUMBAG!) and we STILL got plenty of blue or white tarp "roofs" EVERYWHERE.

Hey FEMA, y'all better stay the F away from my place...*innocent whistle*

4. That's the real question, isn't it...
I'm in Central Florida but don't feel any safer than our friend in Ft Myers... the three hurricanes we sustained last year did serious damage to this area. And yes, I'm filling up every gas tank NOW.

9. You must live near me in Lakeland



There are still lots of blue roofs around here. People are still waiting to get their claims approved and then they go on a roofer's wating list after that.





That was a hell of a year.
