    Hope they don't get cute and do that 80s sandwich dance on you, and not just cuz of your aversion to chicks.

    Some of the videos I've seen coming from Panama City, FL have been pretty harrowing. I'm not 1oo% ready to engage the image of flying roofs quite yet. Too soon. o_O

    As of the day before yesterday according to what the weather guy said, that bitch Leslie is such a stalker, she may come back. Here’s hoping he’s wrong about her.

    We were out of the cone, and thankfully aside from a few gusts, the wind passed us by. I was expecting minor wind damage but have none, and there were no tornadoes in the area.

    The Panhandle is another story, though. The footage of roofs and buildings being blown around like paper is truly frightening, and they’re saying on the news that due to storm fatigue, a lot of people didn’t evacuate. (Also, it’s never mentioned, but evacuating ain’t cheap, which is a factor for many.)

    Were you in Florida the year we became The Plywood State? I was living in Melbourne Beach that year. Jeanne's little loop-de-loop was 100% a dick-move. o_O
