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.

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


  2. 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.

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