It looks like we in Dothan (that tiny spot on Yahoo maps) will miss most of this. I'll feel the effects financially though. As a manufacurer, I buy several truckloads of lumber each month. Whenever a large hurricane hits our shores, lumber prices rise 25-30% overnight, even before actual supply and demand have a chance to act. If Lili indeed remains this strong, I'll have to buy up a couple of months worth of raw material early tomorrow to beat the gougers at their own game.

LOL! I am very familiar with Circle City. Nice place!
When I was about 6 or 7, (1966 or 1967?) we holed up in a motel in Dothan, on our way from IL to FLA, because of a hurricane. (This was before the days of plentiful interstates.) Anyone remember the name of that hurricane?
Better get yours before the hoarding starts!
