      I just talked to my mom in West Melbourne. Apparently the deluge they got caused the retention pond in their back yard to over flow, the sewers all filled up, all yards and the streets are covered in water, and the water came in through their slider and front door giving them about 2-3 inches of water throughout their entire house.

      I think my mom said they were over 20" already. I'm glad they've got flood insurance.

      It's raining cats and big dogs out there right now. Been like that for about 5 hours now and the wind must be 40 to 50 mph.

      Any guesses on how long it will take before my pool rises 2" to over flowing?

      Current time-stamp: 4:44pm.

      My guess? 7:00pm (a little less than an inch an hour)

      Well... It just sprinkled most of the night on 8/19 (this post) It's now almost 9am, on 8/22... and STILL raining. The pool filled up yesterday morning. No leaks in the roof. No serious wind, maybe 30-40 last night for a while, but 3 days later, it's still coming down. Getting bored of this crap... LOL I want my sunshine back. Maybe by Sunday.

      Gunshow Saturday in Orlando! That'll give me something to do...

      Cool

      I live on the west coast about due west of Ocala in Homosassa Springs. We had some wind and about 4-6 inches of rain, but really no big deal. In 1992 I got my ass blown off in Hurricane Andrew, and lost everything I owned, not doin that again!! Luckily this is just a spring breeze. That is some incredible rain over on the east coast. Be safe guys !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I suppose every area has it's hazards. Here in Buffalo we get snowed in now and then, the midwest gets tornadoes occasionally, southeast has their hurricanes, and the west coast shakes it's buildings apart on a regular basis. Be as prepared as you can and stay safe down there...

      Yes, the gulf states have hurricanes and then there's those living in tornado alley. AZ and CA have this massive unending tsunami coming from Mexico.

      Cool

      When the media stands out in the storm they are more showcasing their incredible stupidity. One of these days we will get a live shot of a reporter getting a 2x4 through his head. Maybe they will realize you don't have to sensationalize something that can kill untold amounts of people or do catastrophic damage. I lost everything in Hurricane Andrew in 1992 when I lived in Homestead. There was no need for sensationalism. it was everywhere you looked. I personally have no use for the news media.

      Vodka in case the beer gets warm? Check.
      Chlorine for the pool incase power goes out and pump won't run? Check.

      Okay, I'm ready...
