    All staff will return to their normal jobs and the Emergency Operations Center will cut back to day-to-day operations.

    IMO, those who are likely to be subject to hurricanes are lucky in the fact that there is generally enough notice that they can actually prepare for it, not like those who are struck by a tornado or earthquake.

    And it is really a case of damned if you do and damned if you don't...if little is said about one before hand, and the community is hit "they" will be accused of not warning and preparing the community...

    I remember as a child growing up on the east coast of Florida, when we'd get hurricane warnings and with the preparation going into getting ready for it, and then it would turn or peter out...there was a feeling of disappointment; largely I suppose because of the buildup and then nothing...much like the anticipation for Christmas and then if it never came. Of course as we got older we learned to appreciate the change and not being visited by the hurricane as we realized the dangers, the property damage, injuries, increased insurance premiums, ect. that can come with them.

    Erika, did take at least 20 lives before she blew herself out.

    I am happy it looks as if you guys will be spared this storm; however, may you get some of the rain she would have brought.

    You know Kathy when we were moving here many people would ask us if we wore worried about the hurricanes. I said I was just thankful that with hurricanes at least you have plenty of notice and can prepare. Unlike with earthquakes and tornados... I'm thankful that technology continues to get better to give a little notice with tornados.... but hurricanes we really do get notice. At least if will give us the chance to decide what to do.

    Being new here I do look up to the people who have lived and seen things and gained knowledge of what can happen and what steps I should take. It wasn't until yesterday that I actually dug in looking up information on the internet of where shelters where/ special needs applications/ ... anything. So I take this storm as a test to at least get some things more in order.

    Thank you to everyone, I am very grateful!

    I agree better to have notice and make unnecessary preparations than to have everything blenderized without notice and its good for the Grocery home improvement and liquor store economies.

    Good training is repetition of doing the right thing so when the actual need is required you know what to do.

    Kinda like in the military the time to train is not after the first bullet is fired at your Butt!

    It is also important to note that although it has blown itself into "Old Whats her name" that doesn't mean it can not regenerate and turn into a storm or even a hurricane. Although the winds that sheared it appear somewhat stable they can also move we live in a fluid environment and it changes all of the time.

    Most here know that a hurricane projected path is just that a guess and can vary by a hundred miles within hours. Also hurricanes although causing lots of damage via flooding, also tend to spawn tornadoes with little or no notice when they come ashore and that is another danger altogether.

    For now it looks like this one is over but you have to stay advised this time of the year every day.
    There is another system that just rolled off the Sahara Coast and is 90% likely to develop into at least a tropical storm however the steering currents look like it is going north and likely won't be a problem for us either.

    If it does develop I believe they're naming it "George".

    I'm sure it will refurbish it's self one way or another. I just wish we could get some of that 'dark green' over us. Maybe and probably it will scoot 50 more miles to the west before it's self over. Most rain/thunder storms spun off from these usually come from the east, north/east side of a funnel storm.

    I was wrong about the name. The new one is Fred (Dummy me F, g, h, i, etc. etc. etc LOL) Also although the models have shown Fred to be a northward system it is thus far defying that and moving more decidedly to the West. I'll start another thread if it appears it may impact us.
