Question Are you in the path of Isabel

Let know if you're in the path of Isabel or have suffered any damage. Also tell us your feelings at that moment.

If the storm comes through Maryland, at the moment it does I don't think I'm going to be at the computer to tell you all about it.

I've been married for 9 years...

On a fear chart a hurricane is 1 or 10 for me...

Running out of Cokes? 7 of 10...

What I fear up here are the roads. If I go to work tomorrow, I'm probably going to have a four hour commute on the way home. Believe it when people say the trafic in the DC metro reigon is amoung the worst in America. I guess L.A. is the only place worse.

My commute nominally is 55 minutes one way. And see, trafic grinds to a halt over just a drizzle, let alone a tropical storm.

My current one way commute record is 2h 45m.

Actually, I'm doing just that, me and a co-worker who also has an hour commute. Except he comes from Virginia further south, where as I come from Maryland in the north.

Screw the beltway, they can all kiss my booty!

Were you around for Hugo (1989)?

I heard stories from folks in Charlotte... hurricanes weren't supposed to be that strong so far inland.
