I am on the west coast of Florida, and when good ol' Claudette goes towards Texas, that is one less worry for me.
Wouldn't wish a hurricaine on my worse enemy though. It is always fun to have hurricaine parties unless they are coming right at you, then it isn't so much fun anymore. Thank goodness this one petered out and didn't slam you. This is the height of hurricaine season right now so keep your fingers crossed they all peter out in middle of the Atlantic.
