Thanks again for all you do!

Again thanks for the great job!

Thanks for keeping this thread managable. I can't imagine how exhausted you must be.
Thank you NautiNurse.When do you sleep:)
Hey, you made it super easy to find ya this time. Thanks.
Great..two more Tropical Depressions in the Atlanatic?
winds picking up here, we have dodged the bullet. Prayers for all those in Katrina's path
still a bad one, but it sure was nice to see that it has lost some of its organization.
You are doing a great job helping to create a very wonderful and educational thread here! You are helping to preserve history. It will help me teach my children about hurricanes and such (and I've learned a lot too!). Thanks so much - to everyone on the thread, too!!!
Prayers for everyone touched by Hurricane Katrina!
Nine inches of rain recorded so far in Venice, LA near the mouth of the river.
Just heard on radio, 25 thousand people in the Superdome
Not no way, not no how.
Whoa...StreetcarCam just looked really bad...definitely picking up.
