Default Re: To all my fellow Floridians and other people in Matthew's way...

On the only other forum where I post we "huff and puff" to even out weather extremes. My Canadian friends blow cool air down here during summer; we Southerners reciprocate in winter. Need rain? We with more than needed will blow the excess your way. Not sure it helps but what else do a bunch of old women have to talk about save weather?

Even though I've been invited to hide out in a solid block house with hurricane shutters, generator, good company and an amply stocked fridge and pantry, I plan to stay put and blow eastward for the next few days while glaring at my 45-50' oaks and 40' Norfolk pine and dare them to drop more than a twig. Will it work? Who knows? But apparently previous owners of this 58 year old house must have done the same or got really lucky because the roof never blew and those trees didn't get that tall within the last year.

Do your part--start blowing now! Worth a shot, right?

Thus says a hurricane virgin and white-knuckled transplant trying to play tough guy...
