Here we go again!

There's more to this article, but this is what caught my eye.

"Wilma Now Most Intense Atlantic Storm Ever
By FREDDY CUEVAS, Associated Press Writer

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras - Gathering strength at a fierce pace, Hurricane Wilma swirled into the most intense Atlantic storm ever recorded Wednesday, a Category 5 monster packing 175 mph wind that forecasters warned was "extremely dangerous."

..."All interests in the Florida Keys and the Florida peninsula should closely monitor the progress of extremely dangerous Hurricane Wilma," the National Hurricane Center in Miami said..."

I am really afraid of this one. Wilma sounds like a nasty old bitch and meeting her isn't something I am looking forward to. Guess I better get the guest room straightened up. Looks like we may have evacuees from the ghetto and the beach for the weekend. Egods, hope WE ALL don't have to evacuate! I don't know where the bullets are for the gun!

I agree with you that this storm does not appear to be friendly at all......

It's already Wednesday and as Wilma intensifies, no one seems to be very much concerned so far...

If they decide to give an evacuation order, do you really think it will be in sufficient time? Personally, I don't think so..... and that is a scary thought!

"bullets for the gun"?????

I promise I won't loot your doll room, I promise, I really really promise.

I/we (Dot and Dash) are fed up with this hurricane season. But at least we'll look good since we've all just gotten groomed.

And BTW, Dennis my fav weather guy didn't know squat last eve at 5pm, 'sup wid dat Denny Boy???

As long as my dear cousin and his girl dogs can get up here and hopefully out of harms way, I'll feel much better about riding Wilma out.

We live in the highest part of the county so we'll stay put... especially after STB's experience in Houston! Don, if you live close to the beach take heed! My mother lives on Sand Key and she heads here too. We'll be concerned about you, Muggs and Daisy. Please be careful.

I'm on my way to Publix grocery store...

Dot and Dash must have known they might be visiting relatives this weekend. That Dash is the life of any party, hurricane or otherwise!

As for the bullets, not to worry, none of my dolls are packing except the one dressed as Annie Oakley and she uses blanks.

Oy kids...I don't know what to say except ENOUGH!

Everytime I hear Wilma's name mentioned I think of Fred Flintstone calling WILLLLLMMMMAAAA.

Now that is crazy.

One can only hope that this monster calms down and stays small.

I'm thinking good thoughts about all of you!


Go Astros....

Seems Wilma is not still certain what the plans are for the weekend....

We are in a non-evacuation zone about a block away from MPH.... so the elevation is HIGH. My biggest fear will be the winds and some tree landing in my bedroom which would not amuse Daisy one bit, although Muggs will probably just lift the leg ... as usual!

You are the best! We will get thru this no matter what.

I hope all is well, Ms. ConnieJane, and that the naughty Wilma stays far away from you and yours.

As I have said before... the waiting sucks.

I told "B" that a sure way to keep Wilma at bay would be to go ahead and put the hurricane shutters up. Blocking all form of life and sunlight from our lives. We have stocked up on grocery staples and storm supplies. Should she make a move toward us, the meat market is but a phone call and a couple of miles away as is the produce stand.

Don, I am so glad to have some sense of where you live. Good to hear you are on high ground. We are close to Clearwater High also in a non-evacuation area and neighbor's trees are a concern of mine as well.

My big fear is time. We're ready but those who might need to come here need time. And so, we continue to wait.
