This is highly OT, but of high interest to many - including especially those of us who live in 'Hurricane Alley' (the state that used to be called Florida).
Once again we're getting ready to hunker down, as Hurricane Jeanne is due to hit Florida within the next couple of days. By my count, this will be the fourth hurricane to hit FL within just the last 5 weeks or so. The Bahamas, parts of which suffered a Category 5 hit by Hurricane Frances just a few weeks ago, are going to get yet another damaging visit ... the eye is forecast to move over the Abacos (small group of islands in the Bahamas), where Hurricane Frances parked herself for nearly a day.
Here's an excellent weather website (run by NOAA) about this year's record hurricane season. If you have broadband, you'll enjoy numerous excellent photos:
My main studio remains packed in hurricane proof storage, and I haven't taken down the storm shutters since I first put them up for Hurricane Charley 4 or 5 weeks ago ... I'm grateful that GPO runs on my laptop :-)
