Thunderstorms rolling in advance of the hurricane knocked out our power twice today. We're prepared to stick it out, but if Dennis strengthens and take a sudden turn, as Charley did last year, we may have to pack up and get out of here in a hurry.

All of the above may prevent me from posting updates and contest results. I'll be back when possible and let you know what's happening here. Folks in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, New Orleans and the Gulf coast, please keep a close eye on this one, and do what you have to protect your family.

  1. Hang in there, Lynn. And stay dry. Usually, when these things hit the Carolina coast, we get a visit from my in-laws (Hilton Head Island). So we're familiar, if somewhat vicariously, with what you're going through.

    Thoughts and prayers and wishes for safe keeping are being sent to all in harm's way.


  3. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. I think I'm ready here. Still need to fill water, but I plan to do that in the morning.

    This one is hitting awfully early. Our last bad one was Hugo.
    Take care, you will be in our prayers.

  5. Wow. Life in Florida is not dull, is it?

  6. Good luck. My sister lives north of Fort Walton. I hope it's not too bad.

    Just think she moved from the island to 25 miles inland right before Ivan hit.

    Another monster storm for Florida.
