Gustav

If you go to weatherunderground,it shows tracking to Mexico or out in the Gulf,of course no one knows for sure.Our lakes and ditches are full,so we don`t need another one. 5 day forecast shows cat 1 then back to T.P.as it crosses Cuba. Just Hunker Down. Dave

We should all know by now that predictions this far out, are just about useless. Look at Fay's initial predicted tracks, and then look where it went. Surprised the heck out of everyone. Interesting to see what this one will do.

From CNN

and I quote: "It could go to the right or to the left depending on which way it goes". And who says hurricane tracking isn't a modern science.

Terry, I bet you could have won in Las Vegas with those odds. You just never know about hurricanes.

Move to inland Maine! All we have to worry about up here is ice storms and freezing to death! I spent most of my working career in the tropics, and in the coastal areas of the U.S., on bridges, underwater pipelines, shipping facilities, dredging, and the like. It's nice to watch hurricanes from a distance!

Storm

I got real lucky with this one and it never rained real hard or strong winds.Either way...I am always ready no matter what and I have another place in town if I have to go there also but if it is bad I am leaving.After all these years you can only take so much of it before you just want to leave and then worry about what to do next when you see your place.
I remember when I had to leave during Opal.It took a week and a half before they let me on the beach to go back to my house.I am glad I have my Airstream now.I stayed with my parents back then.

Jim, good luck. Some of our family is leaving. We're staying. I think Gustav has an "eye" on us.

We will be out of here very quickly when it is time to go. We weathered Katrina out at Fort Wilderness but have no firm plans of what we will do this time. We decide where to evacuate to once we have an Idea which way the storm may go after landfall and how bad the traffic is.

Best of luck and stay safe.
