Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

I dont remember any water slides at the KOA.
One thing that did stick out in my mind was all the toads everywhere.
Especially at night, there were hundreds of them, and in the morning there would be dozens of dead ones in the roads.
I remember some guy there would fly a kite at night with lights on it.
Everyone would freak out thinking they were seeing a UFO.

You wouldn't want to be out there on a boat with those swells. Hell, even trying to secure that boat when you got back would be hell. Same reason all surfers all storm to the beach before the hurricane comes in. Now if you are talking about pier fishing, might be a different thing.

This.

Katrina came right through my town - I experienced her eye - and killed folks on my block. I was just lucky she didn't kill me, as a couple of large trees fell very near the house but not on it.

Completely avoid hurricanes if you can.

Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

Guys I am flying back to Washington Dulles via Charlotte late Friday night (flight leaves Charlotte at around 10:30PM).

Based on preliminary weather forecasts I should be ok. Anyone flown around a hurricane? I assume there will be a ton of flight cancellations?

I can officially get behind this F Hurricanes thread now. Irene just borked my weekend travel plans. Tons of flights are getting canceled already including mine.

I'll second that. Earthquakes and hurricanes in one week? Geez mother nature, leave us alone for a little bit.

Little Rock to see family. Didn't even get started, first flight out was delayed to the point where we were going to miss our connection out of Baltimore, and that was the only flight to Little Rock of the day.

You should be OK. Charlotte shouldn't see much and you'll be ahead of it hitting DC, but if they're already cancelling weekend flights in B-more....

I have to take my kid to BWI Saturday afternoon, already dreading the drive. I hope it doesn't start until late Saturday.

Yeah, that's been crazy too. I went out for a run kind of early last Saturday morning and it smelled like some someone was BBQ'ing. For a second I thought SBF had moved to Columbia but then I heard it was from a fire in VA.

Mother Nature is a crazy bittch.
