I just finished locking down WOW and my House. I am in a flood zone and I have decided to stay put. Got my Jet Ski in the front yard in case I need to go to the store for more beer
Spark and myself are far enough inland that we should not get hit to bad but the real problem is not the hurricane itself. The real problem is the tornadoes it may spawn. The hurricane's sustained winds are now about 140MPH with eyewall winds around 200MPH. The storm is 2 1/2 times the size Andrew was so we are very concerned.
The good thing is the storm is moving fast and that means we will not get as much rain so flooding will not be nearly as bad.
I have been through several hurricanes and this one is by far the one which has the most potential for high levels of devastation.
Our server is located downtown and is hooked into the FDN network which has several back up systems so hoipefully we will remain up and running. The same may not be said for Spark and myself as we both use Cable modems and that may hamper our ability to get online. We both have normail dial ups but that still may not work so we ask that the moderators help us out as we may not be able to respond.
We should not receive any thing above category 1 tonight. We expect that in the morning the Eye of Floyd will be around 40-60 miles away which is pretty darn close.
So with that in mind you guys have fun while we hunker down.
