Well, it seems as though the hurricane comes closer to the US, the more paranoid everyone is getting. I live in Onslow, and lately everything is going pretty crazy here. Everyone is stocking up, school is closing for the rest of the week (maybe a blessing...), everyone is worried about power going out, its just getting somewhat crazy here. And Isabel just keeps coming closer. Well, I don't have much to say, execpt what everything thinks of this hurricane. That, and wish me luck in getting past this.

You know, it's downgraded from an F4 to an F3, if it hits, it'll most likely be an F1! A LOT of paranoia is happening. But still, I wish you luck. There's a chance it will die out before it hits, though.

Life is becoming hectic up here. People are doing the same thing here. I have an aunt and uncle who live in a trailer home and are so afraid of the storm that they packed up their things and are moving up to our house for a few days. This is stupidity itself because their house is in a valley and ours is on top of a hill out in the open. When don't have extra room for two more people to sleep plus their dogs. Our house was made for three people only.

I'm not worried about the hurricane much. I am more worried about my aunt and uncle staying over at my house.

I'm still predicting that it shifts to the East towards Bermuda and makes landfall in New Jersey. IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hurricane Isabel_files/tongue.gif)

!There are three things that bother me about hurricanes.
1. There is a hell of alot of traffic near me (I live in Raleigh, NC) when a hurricane is heading for us.
2. We have a lake house near the shore and it could suffer some damage.
3. The power could go out for hours or days. Without computer I would shrivel up and turn into a creature like Gollum.
(I remember the ice storm well... Sure Virginia got snow, we got ice IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hurricane Isabel_files/mad.gif) !!! Power out for days... so cold... no computer...ack!)

How wonderful. Actually, there's much better Isabel coverage on Univision and they have better tracks, and they do think it's going to go up to New Jersey. Part of me wants it, and part of me wants it to stay far away.

I'm changing my mind, It's going to swing south across Florida into the Gulf. It'll pick up some strength there and crash into Texas IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hurricane Isabel_files/tongue.gif)

Hm...I know it's cruel but yay! IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hurricane Isabel_files/tongue.gif)

I live in Brooklyn, but I'm indifferent about Isabel. I don't think I'll give a shadow of concern about the hurricane unless it really affects me, like the power's out and I can't go online, or school is out and I missed a whole day of lessons (I like them to a degree; otherwise it would be another boring day in which the only topic is Isabel).

They cancelled school in Maryland. I'm slightly worried because weather can do erratic things. My birthday party is on Friday, and it'll get all ruined if the power goes out, or if my house collapses.

There are also lots of old trees around here that tend to break in the slightest breeze, so strong winds could throw heavy branches about and break things.

If I don't post by the end of this weekend, assume I've been crushed by sixty tons of debris. IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hurricane Isabel_files/tongue.gif)

Well, I'm lucky. I got two days off, so my weekend really starts today, Wednsday (sp!)! Heh, four day weekends rock, even if Isabel is coming this way. =) Out of time here, so good luck to anyone that gets hit by the hurricane.

Fortunately, I live in the Midwest, where there are no natural disasters. YAY!!!

Oh... right... tornadoes. I don't worry about those as much as I worry about lightning. Lightning burned down my house once. IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hurricane Isabel_files/frown.gif)

I'm not moving from the general area I'm in. All natural disasters miss my neighborhood(But sometimes the bad effects slip through.). Hurricane Isabelle is due to hit tonight, but it's only an F2, at the least. At the most, it's an F3 that will soon become an F2. But it's winds are going at 105 MPH, and can give up to a foot of rain!

Is there anyone on this site that lives in Pennsylvania? I am beginning to feel lonely up here. I see people who live in New Mexico, Texas, North Carolina, Maryland, and some other places. But as of yet, no Pennsylvanians.

A friend of mine lives in NW Penn, in a trailer no less, right under the track of where the hurricane is likely to go according to the news six hours ago. Still, they burn out quickly over land.

I guess there's so much fuss aboyut Isabel because it's so much further N than usual. Might reach NY State, etc, though I remember being caught on the highway in W Virginia when an ex-hurricane (reduced to a tropical storm) came through. You should have seen the trucks scatter.

We're getting them in UK now too, BTW, all the way across the Atlantic from the Caribbean from thanks to the Gulf Stream. Only affecting the S coast now and none too dramatuically unless you live in Pevensey (where William the Conquerer landed), now often below sea level.

All the schools around my college have closed, just not the college. Oh well, I suppose I'll just get a little wet. IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Hurricane Isabel_files/tongue.gif)

well, we in Toronto (and surrounding areas) seem to be at the fringe of the AoE. we're getting pretty heavy rain today (since i woke up anyway), and it's not going to stop.

and lucky me, i don't have school today because it's a P.A. day. whatever that is.

Isabel... was... crap. I'm sorry, but I was expecting a lot more out of Isabel, but it was like a weak tropical storm. *Sigh* So much for the big hurricane. =/

Indeed! I was crushed by merely 30 tons of twisted metal and debris and such, so I easily escaped and brushed myself off. But, I was out of power for a day and out of internet for 3 days. I got 34 emails, 24 of which where viruses pretending to have been sent by microsoft.

But really, it's good that the hurricane didn't do more damage. The whole event did get blown a *bit* out of proportion though.
