Hello Baby

Its about 3:20 Saturday afternoon as I write this and we have just been told by Tom Terry of Channel 9 (ABC) that the winds that blew through here in the airport area 10 minutes ago were in the 57 MPH range. It amazing to think that Frances won’t make actual landfall for another 11 hours, but we are feeling her effects already. I have a feeling this is going to be a long afternoon and night.

To echo Solonor’s post, I was out earlier this morning and the streets were like a ghost town. Very strange for a Saturday morning in Orlando. And with the dark clouds overhead, it was almost like looking at an old black and white movie showing deserted streets.

I’m sure those of us with power will keep trying to post here as we are able to keep everyone as informed as possible.
