Here we go!!!

July 31, 2017

The 2017 hurricane season is starting by the book, as far as the timeline goes that is…this is about the time of year that the orange balls start forming in the Atlantic or the Gulf waters. I have now moved my home to Central Florida in the Tampa Bay area and we are experiencing tropical […]

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!!!

July 4, 2017

I know that there is a storm out there, but I would like to take this opportunity to express my feelings about the current situation in our country. Whether or not we consider ourselves to be Republican, Democrat at Independent, we all are AMERICANS!!! My grandfather and father were immigrants from Italy. My grandfather brought […]

Bret….part deux!!!!

June 20, 2017

I thought it appropriate to incorporate some French in this boring dialogue since Bret might just hit Louisiana, nobody knows for sure.  I sure hope I spelled the number 2 correctly since I have already been sternly corrected by my wife, my son and my bossy daughter (to tell you the truth they are all […]

Is Bret a troublemaker?

June 20, 2017

It’s finally here – a named tropical storm that could be of some consequence in 2017.  I doubt it,  but you never know. I only know one person named Bret, and he is not a troublemaker.  Get those trees trimmed, the low hanging coconuts pulled down, and check your generators.  Now don’t get in panic mode […]

Lots and lots of rain….but nothing stirring of any importance as of yet!!

June 15, 2017

Well, we needed the rain and we have gotten plenty of it recently.  I know because I have spent hours sitting on the tarmac at the airports in the SE and NE.  Thankfully we have not experienced one of those off the wall, out of character early tropical disturbances.  Don’t forget to start stocking up […]

Welcome To Hurricane Season 2017!!!

June 1, 2017

Today starts the official beginning of hurricane season.  In the past few years, if you follow the dribble that I write, I have instructed you over and over again about hurricane preparedness (supplies to purchase and trees to trim, etc.).  I will not bore you with that again because you will be inundated with info […]

Hello hurricane season 2017……

May 25, 2017

Hopefully this season will be like last year – meaning nothing will hit our beloved southeast, or now that I am living on the west coast of Florida, nowhere!!!! In my next post I will give some basic hints on getting prepared for June 1.  

OK, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH….

October 5, 2016

I heard this morning from someone near and dear to me that she had heard a report that BIG MATT was going to skirt our shores, proceed north and then make a U-turn and head right back for us.  I heard the same thing from a less reliable source also.  I for one do not […]

WELL THE QUESTION REMAINS: HOW MUCH DO WE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT?

October 4, 2016

It looks as tho Big Matt is for real!!!!  Exactly how much is going to hit SOFLO remains in question.  I assume that we will know more by the end of the day.  To be on the safe side, now is the time to make sure that you have all of your hurricane supplies at […]

WE ARE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET…

October 3, 2016

Altho it may appear as if we have dodged a bullet with Big Matt taking a Northeastern turn (slight tho it may be), anything is possible, and we are still within striking range of some very strong and deadly weather.  So don’t break out you Halloween decorations just yet,. but you could stock up on […]
