    Yeah, it was Syracuse. I wonder how it was up Tony & Dustin's way.
    How did you post that whole map? Just like a picture?

    We got a hard but fast moving thunderstorm here at about 3 on the 14th. Seems we get at least 3 a week now. Hmm, rain barrels are full...

    Bwahaha, you yankees are funny when it comes to wheather. Puh-lease, thats a little baby storm and your getting all worried. Come on down south my brotha. Its Hurricane season. We get a class 3 or below and we just throw one big rear party. Hurricane parties are the best, boiled crabs, BBQ, cold beer and two-steppin in the rain.

    I just got finished preparing for the season. Gotta rotate the battery stock, buy some extra bulbs for the flashlights, new candles, rotate the can food stock, and buy 6 extra cases of beer for the "backup stock". Things can turn REAL ugly if ya run out of beer.

    Oh, and ya gotta pretty much fill up your freezer with ice. Pack ice in a ziplock bag and stuff it in every nook and cranny (no not for the beer, in case you lose power you want all your meat to stay frozen if it lasts more than a day or so)

    One of the funniest things I ever saw. I was working offshore when a tropical storm ran through, and pretty much sat on top of west Louisiana for a few days dumping over 3' of water. We had to go through 3 towns that where under 6' of water or so (water was up to the soffit on most homes)

    Well, we are putting through a town in a 14' flat boat, and there is this whole family of coon-a$$es sitting in those floating pool chairs, with a BBQ pit they jimmy rigged to float, and an ice chest that was inside an inner tube with a milk crate tied to the bottom cookin up some burgers and hot dogs with a fishing pole in there hands. All while tied off to a plumping vent through there roof.

    Man I wish I had a picture.

    Lavender,
    to post that picture, I went to the weather.com page, found the map I wanted, then hit "alt - printscreen"
    (holding down the Alt key, then press Print Screen while the Alt key is held down)
    that copies the entire screen to the clipboard.
    then I went to Microsoft Paint and pasted it into a blank image, then cropped it so that only the map was in the photo, then saved the image, then uploaded the final image to my server space at mylargescale.com.
    it sounds complicated! but the whole thing took maybe 2 minutes tops..easy!

    If I was at work, I would have done the whole thing with photoshop! a bit easier than MS paint..but since I was at home I had to use Paint..

    Casper, hurricane parties are extremely dangerous. Im not sure when it happened, but some people had a hurricane party. Then sudenly, a huge hurricane came along, it was completely unexpected, and it destroyed the block of flats where the people were having a hurricane party.Only 1 person survived, a boy who floated through the water holding onto something that was able to float.(Im not sure what he was holding on to)

    "Then sudenly, a huge hurricane came along, it was completely unexpected"


    Umm, was that within the last 100 years or so? That can't possibly be a modern story. There is no such thing as an "unexpected huge hurricane" anymore. Those cool satalites in the sky can tell you exactly where they are and where they are going at all times.

    Furthermore, if it ain't big enough for us to haul booty out of town (Very strong class 3 or above, OR if it looks like a direct hit to the mouth of the Mississippi) we are gonna have a throw down. Thats just the way it is here in N'awlins. I attend, or throw, at least 3 hurricane parties a year. Worst thing that I have gotten from any of em in the last 20 years is a hangover.
