My grandma lived on the west coast of Florida and experienced some of those storms. The problem is the gulf is considerably warmer than the Atlantic and the storms grow.
More weather news: in my area, we have gone almost 25 days without any measurable rainfall and a lot of 95 degrees days with high humidity. If this keeps up, they will place bans on all fireworks for the 4th. Not as dangerous as a hurricane unless these genius people around here keep flicking cigarette buds out into the dead and dry grass.
Irene was horrendous......lots of devastation in Vermont, my home state. I moved here to FL just a month or so after Irene.
I have been wondering about Tiger's home and family. I am pretty sure they are safe and all, but damage could still be done. Has anyone heard anything?
GC said Tiger had committed to play in August in Notah Begay's benefit. No date was given.
Do your best, Tiger. We're here for you.
Well I have lived in Alabama on and off for over 30 years...
However I am not on the coast so we don't experience the full effects of a hurricane. We do experience tornadoes, flooding, and severe weather so I do feel for the people directly in the path.
I'm on the east coast of Florida, about 2 1/2 hours north of Jupiter, where Tiger lives.
We are getting light showers occasionally and sporadic gusts of wind. Since he is further south, I would expect that TS Debby's effects are even less for him.
Thanks......more sun and blue skies today but still getting those rainbands and winds. Weather report says we could still get 2-4 inches of rain (yikes!)..... I-10 is over 100 miles north of here. I-75 connects with I-10 near the start of the panhandle..... I came through there Sunday late morning returning from Tallahassee. It was at that junction that I encountered the torrential rains. So they have been getting soaked for three days now, just like we have....although today they are still getting wammed!
The Miami area (where Tiger lives) has not had the rains we have had and since it's a Gulf storm, his Atlantic view home would not be affected badly.....
Thanks again for your concerns!
