I don't drink, I try to convert people to nudism!

Baically Disney Cast members who ride out the storm at work.

Those pesky tourists! They actually want to eat every few hours!

I'm not on the list, but they did ask me what size boot and raincoat I wore tonight!

Charley did some real damage to our house, so we no longer dismiss hurricane preparations!

One thing we learned during the hurricanes of 2004 was that we needed WAY more supplies than is recommended. One gallon of water per person per day is completely insufficient for us. (Just watching a hurricane prep spiel and it recommends 17 gallons per person which is probably more likely, but sheesh! storing that is a challenge).

So, we're as ready as we can be. Vehicles filled with gas. Some cash, propane, charcoal... unfortunately a full freezer, so if power goes and is gone for any length of time we'll be having the Mother of all Cook Outs! :lol:

I don't much trust the forecast paths any longer either. Charley taught us that, one eh?

The intensity of Fay is not as strong as Charley, but the path could drop huge amounts of rain on our area, eh? We've had so much rain that that could end up a real problem.

What does Disney do for hurricane preparations? Hoe is it determined if the parks will close or not. Is there a system for making that decision or is the call left to one person?

Disney has stages, from 1 to 5.

1 (and I would think they would be at stage 1 by now) is pretty much watch the weather.

Around stage 3 they evacuate Fort Wilderness, start tying things down and getting things ready. By stage 5 the parks are closed and guests are asked to remain in their rooms.

Just watched the update on Channel 9, and Tom Terry still has his suit jacket on, so we are fine for now!

Im guessing this is the Florida equal to our weather man wearing a white sport jacket? You dont even need to watch the report, if he is wearing a white coat its off to get gas for the snow blower.

Ya Tom Terry does a little strip tease! If the jacket comes off its gonna rain, the tie goes, your gonna get some wind, and if the sleeves on the shirt get rolled up, start praying!

We also have a local guy on the cable channel 13, he drinks, if he slurs his words its gonna be bad, if he is weaving, head for the hills!

Danny Trainer.....we love watching him during the afternoon storms!

Well I just dropped $70 at the gas station, but I got enough gas to run a generator for a week!

Lets just hope that gas ends up in the lawn mower instead!

That's who I would have guessed.

How were the lines at the gas station?

LOLOL! Yeah, as long as Tom Terry doesn't start undressing we're ok!

IS THAT the problem with the channel 13 guy? LOL! He drives me batty.

Publix up here was mobbed. My favorite water was all gone. We didn't really need any more, but I was going to get some just for reserve.

Still have to get some gas. Probably will do that tomorrow when I am headed out.
