    Cool Cruiser
  1. If you are evacuating, hopefully it will not be like Hugo. With 4 lanes open it should be much better. I drove south on the Interstate and saw unbelievable backups going the other way. The stories everyone told were very memorable. One director of a mental health clinic said they had released all of the patients that they could except for the most needy. They then decided to put patients into individual staff cars to evac. The backups became full stops and after a while many folks were taking trips to roadside bushes for relief. He said, "Can you imagine being responsible for the welfare of individuals that on a good day might be difficult in a regular bathroom setting? For hours?' He said all trips in the future would be on a bus with a bathroom! Travel with refreshment and perhaps a bucket! Go early if you can. Good luck to all!!
  2. Watching this hurricane is like being stalked by a turtle!
  3. As of 10PM on Saturday night-Orlando airport will now remain open. They had been scheduled to stop flights on Monday at 2AM.
  4. File away that Sanford has an airport just north of Orlando. They have flights into center PA with Allegant Aitlines. Low cost and convenience is amazing. https://www.allegiantair.com/interactive-routemap
  5. So sorry to hear of all your trials and tribulations. You DESERVE a cruise! Good luck!
  6. "Swine flu" was declared and all ships to Mexico could not go. We were en route when it happened. Princess came through with a new trip and vouchers before the trip started. Everyone was posting to Cruise critic and comparing deals. Carnival did not offer much but as pressure mounted because of what the other lines were doing, eventually they raised the ante. Best wishes-sorry so late getting back to you, I had hurricane prep at the house to do!
  7. Been there experienced that. They came through after all other lines were nicer. Just later.
  8. Have fun! Get vanilla and sterling silver. Maybe a hammock!
  9. The storm moves forward at a rate of maybe 10-12 mph. It does it 24/7. Usually, airports are up and running very quickly. Several years ago, Charlie came right through the Orlando airport area. Flipped a couple small planes on the ground and broke a glass wall at the terminal. Barely affected travel.
  10. Best guess at this point is the storm coming on land Monday afternoon. Affecting a 40 mile wide area at the coast starting on Sunday afternoon. Outside of that area, it will be mostly sunny with a slight breeze if any. My absolute pure GUESS at this point is not a direct hit on PC. Cruise lines rarely cancel. The storm could hit anywhere from south Florida to Georgia. Those "spaghetti lines" show a possible path that a different weather agency has predicted. They just aren't very dependable at this point.
  11. no-Each airport will be very different
  12. Pelican Bill and I might start a fan club of each other! I agree with him. It would have to march right up the ship's channel to make a mess of the area. Possible but not all that likely. TV around here is showing a little bit further left turn. TOO SOON TO TELL. The whole state by the way will not even know a hurricane came through. The small area where the storm first touches is where you will see damage. The rest of us will just continue to complain about how hot it is.. and the rain from normal rainstorms. This is where the category of the storm becomes important. This is not an Andrew, Hugo, etc. That is a whole different ballgame. It is also why you pay attention to the news for updates.
  13. PC would be open quickly after the storm moves through if it comes to that area. This is the frustration of hurricanes. The not knowing of where and when until things get much closer.
