    It's a bad one, and I hope everyone has found shelter from the storm.

    Anyone ever been thru a hurricane? I have, they are no fun, and ten times worse AFTERWARDS.
    I am the winner in any event.

    I can't even imagine what's happening there... I've lead a pretty benign existance when it comes to natural disasters. The worst thing I've experienced is 80 below zero windchill and only "tornado like conditions." For all southern fixxtures... be safe!

    The third Typhoon (hurricane) to hit Taiwan this season is only a day or so away...it will be the third one I've been through since being here from June. They are not such a big deal here as there can be as many as 20 typhoons in a season . Most houses/buildings are sturdy concrete structures built to survive Typhoons.

    My brother and his family live in Greenville, SC--says they've seen lots of heavy duty rain, wind, tornado warnings--the east side Katrina remnants.
    Hope all of the southern Fixx-tures faired well through this.

    a friend just sent this to me .....


    Last year, National Geographic did a story on what would be likely to happen if a powerful hurricane hit New Orleans. Its conclusions were eerily accurate.

    Equally scary, it paints a frightening picture of changes in the waters near New Orleans. Given its conclusions, it appears to have been only a matter of time before disaster struck.

    You'll find the story at:

    I've been hearing for years that a hurricane that would hit the New Orleans area would be nothing but devastation due to the 'below sea level' status of the city.

    Water would be the great catastrophe, and this has always been predicted.

    Sad, but now true.
    I am the winner in any event.
