Here she comes!

We're beginning to see rain, water spouts, and tornadoes.  No winds yet (probably not till after midnight), but we've put the light outside chairs, garbage can, etc. away and laid the heavier stuff down.  We're doing wash to be caught up in case we lose power, and then we'll fill the sinks, bathtub, washing machine, buckets, pans, ...  Gotta bag more ice.  Wilma should make landfall about 8 AM as a category 2, I believe, and leave as a 1.  It should be way south of us...

Too bad for the way-South of Florida, but I'm glad you're prepared and probably not in Wilma's path.  That direction looks good for the Atlantic coast, and we'll never hear the end of it if the thing drops a single drop on New York...

oino,

Thanks for the news.  I hadn't heard that about the windows.  We're still getting occasional wind gusts here, but nothing like the south, where weathermen are being blown back and forth.
