Angry Here We Go Again With Wilma!

Hurricane Wilma is coming. Once again we are boarding up and tying everything down. All this hurricane prep, recovery, and crappy weather is really cutting in on my riding time. We will probably lose power and internet access for a couple of days. See ya after the hurricane.

Keep your head down Yuan. My sister has a house in Hobe Sound. Hope you fare well.

I drove to S FL Thurs, helped da wife secure the house, and flew out my Cirrus today (Sat).

Probably not necessary, but by the time you're 100% sure the hurricane is coming, flying out can be problematical (ask the FL pilots near Punta Gorda last year). There were some clouds today, but virtually no rain on my route (S FL to N GA)

Last year I did a little photo essay on my Hurricane Jeanne return flight:

You too Rick. It seems that Wilma has not made up her mind what part of FL she is going to hit.

My wife's sister and family live in Venice. We're hoping the best for everyone down there. The price of living in paradise?
Love the picture Eddie.
