Sounds like the weather could be better, but the threatening stuff will be mostly over. So we take cover when it rains. At least the showers are in and out and don't last long at all.

edited because someone knocked on my door when I was half done and I clicked submit instead of preview! oops.

I looked at the weather channel going from hour to hour and they have the rain to about 20-40% on Saturday from about 10-11am. I am like you, unless it goes staight up the middle of the state the I would cancel but I am there even if we don't start the ride until noon or 1 that is fine with me.

Rick - did you doctor up that image above?!?!! The ONLY area of the ENTIRE state that is not in the possible path is the upper St. Johns - Looks like from about the river and Hwy 50 down to Stick Marsh and beyond a little.

The ONLY place the storm is forecasted NOT to go... is the place where we ARE going!!!


:) :) :) Yes!!!

Let's hear it for overcast skies, cool weather and great riding!!!

Looks like the wind will not be a factor ether. Here is the wind cast for Sat.am

http://www.intellicast.com/Local/USLoca ... dnav=d2_12

Looks to be 10-15 knots(12-17mph)

I'm still waiting to see what I will have to do for work before I know if I'm coming or not.

Hey the weather here has not been as bad as they had expected today. Yes we had some rain and wind gusts but no great big squalls or downpours. Not yet anyway. We will see though. Has been nice and overcast and it feels like winter with the temp so low.

Hey ya'll,

Got the hatches "battened down here" only hope for not much rain. Checked the canal, (300 feet from the house) and S.W.F.W.M. did decide to open the wiers at the last moment. Dropped the canal 3 feet easy! Feel much better now!

As the eye of this weak, puny, little, wanna be hurricane passes over us tomorrow we'll decide at around 4 P.M. to attempt to make the drive!

I'll have the sign, coleman stove, and of course Ms. Basketcase in tow!

Hope to seee ya!
