Hey guys,

What a wild storm! Stayed up
all night watching this sucker
on satellite, radar and "CNN". Very
impressive seeing mother nature
unleash her fury.

Based on this summers lessons...

I believe the tornado warnings and
watches are very warranted. We have
our four tornadic elements. A trigger (intense boundaries), lots of wind shear (directional and speed), plenty of moisture (swamp country), and a whole lot of instability. What makes things more interesting is that some of these cells are moving at 60-90 miles and hour accourding to some news sources. I think tornadoes will
play a larger role as this hurricane makes it further inland. They probably will mostly be f0-f1s.

Thats my two cents, open to other
ideas. Either way a "hurricane
chasing" course would sound
like fun too ;)

Web page and CDs almost ready
by the way.

Take care,
Peter

Dear fellow blogger,

I perused your post with much interest as I was looking for ways to trade in construction
. But unfortunately your post did not exactly cover trading in construction
. Yet I have fount a website that allows you to trade in almost anything like construction
on interest free credit, and you can pay for your construction
whenever you want. Here is the link one more time: construction
