Colony of Stachybotrys mold. This toxic black mold has been linked to fatal lung disorders. In the humidity inFlorida with no air conditioning to dry damaged buildings, mildew and molds grow quickly. Mildew and molds can be a problem even without the presence of hurricanes.





If you live in Pinellas County and want to get out, you had better go very early... wwaaayyy before you know the hurricane will hit!



You can see that the main part of St. Petersburg would become an island in a category 4 or 5 storm... and this does not factor in inland flooding from rain.



The infamous Andrew of 1992




You've seen these, I'm sure. A typical picture of maniac newsmen and weather reporters trying to report during a storm... often the pictures are at night so you can't see anything anyway... or there is so much wind that what they are saying is too garbled to understand. Besides, if they were in the worst hit areas, there would probably not be any transmissions.

Last year there was one segment where a news weatherman went flying in the wind... we were rolling on the floor laughing at that one. Of all people, you would think that they would understand about hurricane winds! I guess it is something like being a tornado chaser.

I never understood the weatherperson's desire to stand out in the weather that they are trying to tell everyone to get out of. They talk about how dangerous it is out there and still they stand there waiting to get spanked by the wind or a rogue piece of poorly secured window plywood.

Ah, tornadoes don't sound so bad now. At least they just rip through town, mess everything up, and leave. Hurricanes tend to stick around so they can beat you up a little more. Hope you guys have an uneventful hurricane season!

Glad to see all the happy hurricane pictures up already. Was starting to think everyone would forget. Need to scare everyone out of the state early so we can call off the Hurricanes. If it wasnt for all of the straggling snowbirds, we wouldnt need em. =)
