    Nice satellite image, Loki!

    I used to crew on a "tall-ship" and I've had to work through several hurricanes. It's fun but scary all the same. I've actually never been a part of a 'direct hit'.

    I live about 150 miles inland now though. Isabel is supposed to bring some rain and wind to my area on Friday but the landmass will surely somewhat neuter the storm's ferocity. The last one to make it up my way was Floyd in 1999.

    Hurricanes are fun but not as fun as snow-storms though . I also dont think it is much fun for those who have houses and families over there. I wish I was on the east coast right now.

We had big cyclone hit South Africa in 1984 (Demoina).

    If there's anyone on this forum from the mid-Atlantic area, they'll likely have a better view than I!

    That's interesting about the Indian Ocean storms. Of course I know of our Atlantic hurricanes and also the Pacific typhoons (South Korea apparently was just hit) but I had wondered about the Indian before....

    Yes indeed, big storms can be very exciting.....and yes Wend, nothing beats a good blizzard and a piping woodstove on a Vermont night in February!

    Almost time to wax up the skis!
