Title: Ivan And Unclrob
Post by: 12barBill on September 15, 2004, 06:02:49 PM
Sorry, I know this is not Larrivee related, but it is forum related.

I noticed UnclRob seems absent today. Things may be heating up around Tallahassee today with Hurricane Ivan arriving. It could be a very bad couple of days coming up, and a terrible aftermath.

Just wanted to throw out some thoughts and prayers to you UnclRob. You are being thought of.

 Thanks.Things are a little crazy but from what I've been told we in Talliland will only get some lite winds around 30-50 MPH and lots of rain.I am packing some things up just in case.As a friend of mine has told me,"you boarded up the window's and bought a generater so the storm will just pass you by".I hope this is true, :unsure:

Sort of like insurance. You buy it hoping you'll never have to use it.

Hope it passes you by Rob and Koamon too.

Who on the forum is in its revised path?

Good luck UnclRob.

  I am in So.Flo. (east). For us Ivan was not2b, I hope that you have the same fortune. Frances pushed us in the 30-50 range, annoying as it was, it was relatively easily doable.
  Gotta say the D05 got a lot of action after the power went out. It did wonders for my sanity.

Don,

Thanks for your concern. I went by to see UnclRob and the shop's all boarded up...so Murphy's Law foretells me that it will, hopefully, hit elsewhere. Lucky for me as I only have some exquisite koawood to board up the windows with.  The projections indicate further west and eastbound traffic on Interstate 10 is at a crawl so my prayers and best wishes go out to those west of Tallahassee. I say this as I, along with UnclRob was in Miami for Andrew.

I think Tallahasse is going to do okay.  Mobile AL is going to get smoked.  My kid lives over just northeast of Pensacola, think he might get some heavy weather, but not the brunt of it.

Rethinking my retirement plans to the Gulf Coast.....

Hang in there everybody. This s*** is getting OLD ain't it?

I'm driving to Atlanta tomorrow for Little Brother's Jam. It may be the first Jam held entirely under water using scuba tanks. :o

Hey Unclrob and Guitaradoptions, I know you guys from here and AGF but I'm relitively new to both forums...

Dave, I am glad to hear your Mother-In-Law is well. When I first heard, I thought of giving my friend in Tampa a call, and calling you to get her address so he could swing by to check on her, but he had left town on account of the storm too, and stayed gone the whole week...

Unclrob, I feel your pain as I live in Miami only blocks away from the ocean, and know how terrifying it was when we had Frances baring down on us. I hope Tallahassee fairs well, you'll be in my prayers... Speaking of Tallahassee, sorry about last week's game... snicker snicker  :D

Tom please make sure your Goody is wrapped very tight when you jam in the scuba gear.Atlanta is going to be very wet.
To all Thanks for the wellwishes.Please keep your pray's going for the people of Mobile and New Orleans who are going to have to return to a major mess.

Rob--Good to hear from you! We had CNN on and saw that you guys lost a section of bridge! Also, I heard a school lost its roof, but I'm glad it didn't get to you.

Pensacola took the big hit.  Did you see the I-10 bridge across Pensacola Bay?  Collapsed.  That had to take some serious wave action.

Saw that I've crossed that bridge a 100 times.scary stuff.

Lots of rain and moderately high winds here in N. Georgia, an hour or so north of Atlanta. The rain is starting to taper off as of 9AM. I've been without power since 7pm last night (using a laptop w/battery now).

I suspect lots of flooding and I have a couple of trees down on my property, but nothing blocking a road or close to the house.

The back of Little Brother's yard may be a swamp.

I'll be leaving at noon to go to LB's jam and driving back home each night which is about 2 hours each way.

Randy be careful I read reports of flooding in north Ga.I hope all is good at LB's place.

We're on the very outer edges of it here in north central S.C. I'm slightly south of Charlotte, N.C. We're having periods of heavy rain and surprisingly heavy wind (nothing like you're getting west and south of here). Flooding is our concern. And the "t" word.

Bill please stay in side and tie the wife and kids down.I've read reports of mudslides in your area due to all the rain that you've gotten from all 3 hurricans.Be Safe.


Title: Ivan And Unclrob
Post by: 12barBill on September 17, 2004, 04:21:35 PM
Thanks Rob. No wife, no kids. Old bachelor right now. Fiancee lives in Surfside Beach, S.C., about three hours away. Been doing the long distance relationship thing for five years now.

The mudslides are mainly in the mountain areas of N.C. (western part - Appalachian chain).

I'm in the piedmont area (rolling hills) along the Catawba River which has a series of large recreational lakes - hydroelectric dams. Duke Power Co. is turning out all the water they can through the dams, but can't do it fast enough. Too many hurricanes too close together. Many tributaries and low lying areas are getting flooded. A very large area feeds this river system, so when this storm gets gone water is still draining into the river system and its lakes for days. And Hurricane Jeanne (spelling?) looks like it's gonna come this way next week. More heavy rain maybe.

OK, geography lesson over.

Pittsburgh is getting slammed with record-setting rain for the last 24-hour period. Major roadways are washed out and the rivers will crest above flood stage downtown.

Fortunately, we live high up on a hill and the rest of our family all seems to be safe. No worries here, but there are some low-lying areas that haven't been as lucky.

You know what I said about Arizona not getting any hurricanes ... well, Hurricane Javier has us in his sights. Its supposed to cross Baja on land and hit us tomorrow or Sunday. No comparison to the ones hitting Florida but we are a little excited here. We need the rain!
