    Heh, Florida is fucked, this hurricane hasn't even hit the warm Gulf waters yet. It's projected to hit Pensacola (same place a Category 3 did back in September) This time I'll either be stuck at the Marriott for 3-4 days, depending on when they close down the bridge, or chilling at my house in town. Gas is already insane, as of last night, 50% of all gas stations had either 93 octane or diesel to choose from. The pics that I took last year won't have shit on this one if it comes this way.

    London bombing and the hurricanes are having a punch on Gasoline prices. It'll go down.

    there was a dennis like to years ago, i thought they tried not to reuse names. i was stuck in cape hatteras when it hit. sick waves coming off the bay. totaled my parents, at the time, brand new trailblazer. but from what you guys are saying, it looks like this dennis is going to be worse.

    I hope you guys are safe. I lived in Clearwater for 6 years off and on and never got hit by a big hurricane, the only one that did pass through was Charlie and it wasn't big. Anyway for those of you in Florida and elsewhere that might be in danger stay safe.

    yeah i live about 100 yards from the mississippi river down here in LA, if it hits the mouth of the river and goes up there goes all of new orleans and the surrounding areas... we had a lot of problems from that last tropical storm that hit around our area(power out, flooding etc etc) and it was a tropical storm haha
