Tropical Storm Andrea anyone??

Well when it rains it pours, literally!! So check this out.... we are in the middle of the first named storm of the hurricane season. Under tornado watch right now. :eek:

When I asked the big guy last night for help to keep me from thinking about smoking today, I didn't mean send a damn hurricane geez!! The winds were blowing between 40-50 on my way to work. I look like a drowned rat right about now, and I certainly have no desire to stand outside for a ciggie so I guess the plan worked eh??? :D

Anyway, welcome to day 4 looks like I'll be sailing through it! Literally ~Hee Hee ! :p

  • Too right lol.

    Whatever works, I'll take it! ;)

  • Clearly he thought you needed some real engouragement not to smoke - and even if you did cave, the rain would put your fag out :p

    Lol and even if it didn't there's nothing like the looks you get from other people while you're huddled up puffing away :eek::eek:

  • Here's the storm now

  • Stay safe. I'm glad we don't get hurricanes here

  • Sherri pls keep posting later if you can so we know you are ok

  • Will do. I am located to the left of Tampa on the coast so we are right in the thick of it. Just received tornado alert on my cell phone whoopee! :eek:

  • Stay safe! Today, here in Ohio, the weather is doing a fantastic impression of British weather, it is raining, the British, constant, grey and dreary rain! I regret complaining that it was 90 degrees last week! I am British though, so complaining about the weather is in my blood!

  • Wow i havent experienced anything like that before. The worst winds i've had to deal with is from my lovely wife after a curry!!!

    I just googled a news report and it looks pretty scary. Take care.

  • Hey All !!! Well the storm is passing so to speak, lost power for a bit but all good now. We had two tornadoes touch down within 5 miles of my office so that was a bit wild...

    Now there are three huge fire trucks on the side of my office building and they have cordoned off the street and the fire people are all putting on the white suits :eek: One of the trucks is a HAZMAT vehicle. What is going on around here?

    Trying to convince one of the smokers to go out and see but so far no takers.

    Keep y'all posted :cool:
