Evidently this is the fastest ramp up in power we know of - somethings going on here - the explanations seem a little bit like the guys giving them have their fingers crossed under the table.
On a better note - Gasoline demand dropped 31/2% in Sept on the price spike, so we can know sense starts to set in at about $3.00, but if this sucker turns for the oil patch somehow - I'm gonna dig a bunker.

Halliburton is behind it. They generate storms to get contracts. Bush goes long with it because Cheney told him hurricanes disproportionately impact Democrats.

I've been watching this one since it formed as a depression. It has basically circled over the same spot for the past 4 days, with a little jog north and west during the day. No forward movement to speak of, yet. Built up from a being barely Cat 1 at bed time to a Cat 5 when I woke up and central pressure plummeting making it the strongest (low pressure wise) storm ever recorded.

fortunately I'm not slated to head to SE Coastal GA until just before Halloween. The current predictions have it making a hard right, crossing Florida and running up the east coast. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Make that a real sharp right....the kind that will take it into the Atlantic, please.

I would really like to see my house (that's about an hour south of Tampa) still standing after the weekend.

Hey, allright!...(not) I'll be in Norfolk on Sunday, I guess just in time to get there before Wilma if she heads up the coast.

Bot,
You fogot to mention that Rove is behind it all because it'll get people distracted from his upcoming jail time due to Plame. No worries though, I realize how hard it is to keep up with all the conspiracy theories.

Since you guys aren't responding to my Wilma thread, I figured I'd post here.

If this thing goes thru Central Florida, It will surely test the strength of the 300 year old oak trees that are growing over my house in Sebring. If this doesn't knock them down, nothing will.
