    For some reason "Cone of Probability" makes me laugh....dunno why.

    We are definitely keeping an eye on things. Can never let our guard down around here.

    A "Get Smart" fan, perhaps?

    One computer generated path aired a short while ago on the Weather Channel showed it heading up the center of the Florida peninsula. Forecasts are now being updated every six hours.

    The storm is predicted to cross Hispaniola, and how it crosses the 10,000+ Ft. mountain range will affect its strength.

    Le Sigh. I'm never going to be able to ride. It's typical for Florida to have rain every day but it's normally quick sun showers that dry right up.

    It's been weeks of this nonsense. My street flooded yesterday and it required wading through knee high water to get to the front lawn of my house. Third or fourth time this year that has happened.

    I just started riding regularly and now I haven't been able to ride (no indoor) for real for a couple weeks. The forecast is for at least seven more days of rain and thunderstorms.

    . I thought this was passing further away from us. We need rain to make up for the drought, but we don't need a major storm hitting Port-au-Prince.

    Here is SE VA, we keep a close eye on "I" storms as our last 2 experiences were with Isabelle and Irene!

    Let's hope the forecasters have it all wrong and this storm will dissolve or head to the North Atlantic.

    I am worried about you and Hoover with the latest forecast. Definitely headed your way.....hoping for mild winds and a fast moving storm.

    This is always a stressful time of year on the OBX of NC. I like the ones that simply head out towards Bermuda and disappear in the Atlantic

    We are so wet here in Central Florida...it has been every day deluges. More than our normal afternoon showers. We had 5 inches in 2 hours one day. Needless to say, where my horses are, it is completely flooded. The horses are on limited turnout as it is and some days I just hand walk them. The flip side to all this is that Tucker, my very allergic draftcross, looks fabulous! Being in so much has done wonders for his skin issues!
    I hope this storm heads far out to sea!

    Lookout, Miami! At the moment, you're in the crosshairs for very early Monday morning.

    Same Lori here in N.FL the last thing we need is MORE rain! The ground might as well be soup as it is.

    Meh. It's just a tropical storm. Nothing to get your knickers in a twist over or anything. Doesn't even warrant putting the luggage tags on the horses or drawing on them with fun neon-colored livestock crayons. Of course, now I've probably just jinxed myself.
