We have a cousin in Melbourne. Just finished talking with several relatives in Brevard and Volusa counties. Some of our friends have power and some don't. A niece in Port Orange in OK but her husband (a teacher in New Smyrna) who went in to work today said that that area is being pounded with rain and wind. They are all ready for this thing to be over with!

Hope that Honey Bear is OK. Cubby, can you give us an update?

Thanks for all your thoughts. We are dry and now it appears everything else is drying out. Tons of elderly and poor folks are in a very bad way now. What was affected more than anything else were trailer parks flooding while people watched their home and belongings just get wasted. Most of them seem to be built right near I95. That means the water has a big levee to go over so it just stays put. Most of the people affected also didn't have FLOOD insurance. It's a shame that those who are less able to handle a situation like this are the ones hurt the most. They could use your prayers and support.

Rouge - I have never been to Kentucky so that must be someone else.

I moved to Blairville in 2004 and went back to my townhouse in Savannah for two days to get some clothes as I was going to be a part-timer. After all that noise at night I have never gone back and have a wonderful "house sitter"...yes, IRS, not renter, house sitter. Can one believe that I am the only one out of 64 people to have flood insurance??? My place is 1/4 mile from inner-coastal waterway. It started three years ago at $120 per year from FEMA. My bill this month is $250. Storms coming in and I forgot to take digital pictures of all my new furniture etc. Oh well, living up here it worth it. Thanks for letting me vent. Woofs-A-Plenty...PS Yep, I know Paula and Sonny Sieler (UGA's Dad) PS window didn't let me do spell check Mr. J.

Paula gave the command to start engines at the race tonight. Instead of saying "Driver's start your engines", she said "Driver's, YA'LL start your engines"! Her picture is on the side of one of the cars for tomorrow night's race.

Talked to another niece in Titusville today. She said that they were fine (had had a lot of wind and rain but no flooding) but that her bunny had disappeared during the storm. While we were talking, her neighbor came over with the bunny. He had found it during the storm.

This is mostly for Joy and Gray -

Fay dumped a lot of rain here, but not as bad as many places. Only minimal stuff here, a little flooding in places, a few small limbs and palm fronds here and there. I think we "dodged" another one.




This is on Lanier Blvd looking across to Howard Coffin Park. Lanier Blvd was closed, as were several of the side street leading off from it. You can see the water on the road even though it's a bit blurry.




This is looking south down Lanier Blvd. At high tide, the road was completely covered. Most of it had started to recede when the tide when out. Lanier Bridge was still shut down yesterday afternoon, though I'm sure it is open now. The St Simons Causeway was also shut down for a few hours yesterday..



This is at Two Way Fish Camp. Not sure how high it topped off, but it looked like the water was/had been up on the dock at Catfish Charlie's Restaurant. At one place on Hwy 17 before you get to Two Way, water was over the road and they had police there to stop traffic. Luckily, the water cleared out with the outgoing tide.


This looking south towards Overlook Park. It looks like this storm finally finished ruining the pier there. At one point during high tide, water was WAY up in the park, and I was told that Spankys was flooded as well.


The Altamaha River, (Butler Island) Hwy17 going towards Darien. Out of it's banks. Not sure if you can see it or not, but there is a small fishing pier on the left that is under about 2 1/2 foot of water. Sonny and I fish there sometimes.



Life is a Journey -
Enjoy The Trip!

Thanks for the pictures Taylor. I had heard that the Lanier Bridge was closed because of the high winds. Wasn't sure about the causeway. I figured that it had also closed. Did they evacuate the islands? I saw a picture online from the Brunswick News that showed Beachview Dr. around the old Coast Guard station also closed because of flooding. Hope that things are starting to get back to normal there.

***Sorry Joy...This is "projected" path of Gustavo!!! I forgot to throw that in!!!


 


When viewing the T.D. 7 2008, the green area is the Tropical Disturbance, yellow is the projected T.S. (tropical storm) and the red is the anticipated upgrade to a hurricane. May this force, not be with you.

Don't think Gustavo is going to let up...


Just heard on the news that Gustav could be a Cat. V soon. The wind is greater than 155 mph.

Gustav is a Cat 1 now and projected to be a Cat III somethime Friday.  All tracks and cone projections show it south of Cuba until Cuban landfall around Saturday.  However, on Sunday, the projected path takes it out of Cuba into the Gulf, and, if it goes straight, NO is in Gustav's line of sight.  There is time (and plenty of warm water) for it to become stronger between Cuba and any US landfall.  None of the computer models (at this time) show Gustav making a right turn to FL.  This could be another bad one for LA, MS, and AL.
