Exclamation Mid/South FL - Be Safe!

Just wanted to wish all you guys & girls (+ your families) in the Mid & South Florida area the best of luck during Frances... There's also another reported depression (#9) to be arriving in a similar path to Frances next week as well.

Let's not take this lightly, folks, we've been thru this before, and we know what these things do! Prep up and be safe!

Much love,

I'm finding this storm a little amusing, to be honest. Let me share some observations...

1) Local news station was giving out their website address in order for residents to visit and see "if their area had lost power or not." HELLO??

2) One anchor lady after hearing the wind over a cell phone of a dispersed field reporter stated, "those sound like 50, 60 or even 70 mile-an-hour winds.

3) News people standing out in an 80 mile-an-hour wind WARNING people to stay indoors.

GAWD, I love Florida. :D :D

the best was last night i saw 2 guys talking about how distilled water is made while in 90+mph winds on the east coast. they cut back to the news desk and the anchor lady had her head down becauseshe was laughing so hard while the anchor guy was talking with a massive smirk on his face.

back to the two guys...they were being blown around like rag dolls and the guy holding the mic to the other guy was just laughing his *** off.

I have come to know that the road news anchors have the wosre job in the world. They stand outside in these things and scream and yell..."yes the winds are...OW IT HURTS.... getting stronger....OH THE PAIN OF THESE...OWWW"
