I know you are not a weather man but....
What is the weather like in October? I'm thinking of booking a family trip to mouse world. I'm thinking that the weather is probably similar to ours here in Palm Springs, Ca.

Gah, I just called and cancelled my Resort reservations today. Just not going to be able to afford to make it down there. If I hadn't already been 18 or 19 times in my life I'd be a bit more upset, but it still sucks. :p
When I went in October 2001, it was mid 80's for the highs and mid 60's for the lows. Every other trip has been in November, but we moved that trip up that particular year. Even November is always very comfortable, mid to high 70's/50's.
If there's anything you want to know, just ask. Between me and my brother, we could pretty much tell you anything, lol. We use to run a pretty large Disney World site, but shut it down due to disagreements. If I ever get the time I'm going to put it back up under a new name, but it's like a couple of hundred pages, a couple of hundred pictures, etc. to redo :eek: and I just don't have the time currently.
Eh, ok I'm done. Didn't mean to hijack your thread and start rambling. :o

Thanks for the input. I have only been to FL in the summer months (June & July). I hate going at those times....too many people.

Smindsrt... outside of last weekend, it's always good though I'd skip the fat rat.

My kids would never, ever, never, ever, speak to me again if we skip the RAT. I do want to check out other stuff, Cape Canaveral (maybe), Cocco Beach and just relax.

I certainly understand that sentiment... there's a bunch of other stuff that's really cool though too.
I think it should be a requirement before coming for every family member to be able to sing "Florida" by Mofro on the Blackwater CD, unless they're teething. (smiley here)

I guess it all worked out. Had I kept my plans, tomorrow (Sunday) would have been the day I was leaving to head down there.

Are you holding down ok on the west side?

There was an huricane warning, but not going his way. Since they are often wrong, he did not like it. I did not see him since yesturday and he still showed up while the previous huricane was around. So I don't like this.
Hurricane Frances weakened to a tropical storm today and crawled inland with heavy rain after leaving two people dead and more than five million without power.
More than 13 inches (33cm) of rain fell along Florida’s central east coast, flooding some areas four feet (1.2 metres) deep, as a weakened Frances edged across the state toward Tampa and the Gulf of Mexico. In its wake, trees and power lines were flattened, broken traffic lights dangled and beachfront roads were littered with coconuts, avocados and tree limbs.
Hopefully he's just out of power.

Yea that's the bad thing living in Flordia. I mean when it snow's here it is soooooooo nice to enjoy 75 degree weather down there but what's happening now I would never ever want to be in. Thanks to the 5 great lakes we never ever see even a Tornado

There are millions down there without power right now, so if he is one I wouldn't be surprised. Plus Tampa is still getting dumped on by the southeast side of the storm at the moment. It's fixing to go just east of me (well about 70-90 miles), but we'll probably still get a tad bit of wind and rain off the farthest west squall lines.
Although it has still done a good bit of damage, the good thing about it was that it really died down after going across the Bahamas, and then stalled offshore before finally making landfall. Still made landfall with about 105mph winds though, nothing to sneeze at. As to where Charley hit land at 140mph. Frances was 140 going across the Bahamas.
The bad thing is, there's another Cat 4 heading right towards the Southeast. Still about a week away though.
I'm watching this one. Frances is the fourth one to miss me (T.S. Bonnie and Hurricane Charley probably would've had a good chance to hit here had it not been for a stalled front on the East coast that sucked em right up that way instead). Gaston, although a relatively strong Tropical Storm, just went South of here.
It's like...our time is due. :rolleyes:

I've lost count - 5 storms like that went through this year right?
09-06-2004, 11:56 AM
4 so far, but not all of high intensity. 2 (Bonnie an Gaston) were just tropical storms (73 mph or less).
If you go here (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/custom/sfl-inttrackmap.htmlstory) and click Storm Archive and then 2004, you can see all of the storms for this year, past and present. For each storm you can use the up/down keys on the keyboard to move the storm, and it'll show the wind strength for certain areas where it changed.
Mobile (where I'm at) is marked on the map. Tampa (where he is) is just north of where Charley went on shore.
I'm weather obssessed. Been that way since I was a kid. 8-|
