I always feel so bad for those people when they're reporting on things like this. I remember last year I saw a girl reporting about one of the hurricanes on TV, and the poor woman could barely stand up straight, it was so windy. And of course, she was soaked to the bone, 'cause it was raining so hard...

At the same time, though, that's good that they're on top of everything.

Oh, geez...that's scary stuff.

You and your family are in my thoughts . Stay with him as long as you need to, we here will definitely understand.

Another Ft. Myers person, eh? It rained something fierce earlier, but now it's cleared up again, thankfully.

You know one thing I've always wondered about in regards to things like this (and regular storms, too)?

Sometimes an area will have both tornado warnings and flood warnings. So the flood warnings are advising you to go to higher ground, while the tornado warnings are advising you to go to lower ground, and I'm always wondering what exactly you're supposed to do in that situation?

The tornado warning takes precedence. Move to the safest room in your house. Here in Florida houses don't have basements, so for us that would be a closet or an interior room or hallway.

I knew of one other Ft. Myers person here on the forum, and now I know two. Glad to know there's more of us!

Had some really bad wind and rain last night as the first feeder bands came through. My backyard is flooded.

Fortunately for us on the west coast, Dennis has moved further west than expected, so we should be in the clear now. Still need to keep a close eye on it, though.

Yeah...one of the guys on the Weather Channel earlier was saying that that 115 mph wind was just a slight ways away from the center of the storm, which, as we all know, is calm. So to go from 115 mph winds to dead calm in that brief a time...yeesh.

That's seriously one healthy-looking storm on the radar...scary stuff. Once again, everyone in that area, stay safe...you're all in my thoughts .

It's a lovely day here. Just hot. It hit 101 degrees today for our high...last I checked it was 100, and that was just a little while ago.

It's still pretty breezy and right now it's lightly raining, but it looks like the worst is over for us on the west coast of Florida.

Am praying now for the people on the Gulf Coast who will be affected by Dennis.

Glad that you are safe and sound missy becky. Hoping and praying for all the other people of the Gulf.

It's a beautiful day here with sun and in the upper 70's.

I understand the storm's dropped down to a category 2, which, while still a threat in some ways, isn't nearly as bad as it could've been. So that's some good news, it's weakening . Hope everyone's doing all right down there.

As for the weather here today, much cooler than yesterday-only supposed to get into the low 80s today. Right now, it's in the upper 70s. Could see some storms later today and tonight.

Heat's supposed to return this week, though. But for the latter part of the week, my family will be in Iowa, where it looks as if it'll be somewhat cooler, so....

Today (Tuesday) Hot with a high of 92 !!

Supposed to be getting severe thunderstorms on Wed - Sat here
in the upper region of Illinois ... all of which are after effects from Dennis ...
Anywhere from 3-6 inches of rain is expected ...
Although, we need rain, not all at once like this !!
I hope the Midwest does NOT have problems with flooding now as well ...
