Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

nope--because i havent had a chance to see this place as it is known--only seen it in severe hot and high humidididity.... wanna see it for itself instead of the fun weather. the storms are kinda cool at present and nothing growing offshore at present so i can watch irene grow and develop into some klinda screeming meemee....


gooood luck east coast--she seems to be going back to the west a tad--not good....
