Get ready, those of you in Dennis' path. If my pain level is any indication, we are in real trouble. I was fine yesterday, just uncomfortable. Today is a whole different story...and I am all the way up in northwest Georgia. I feel for those of you closer to the action.

My cousin lives right near Mobile, AL and they just got done fixing all the damage to the houses that they own and rent out to people(the roofs were torn off of almost every house and trees fell on their house and caused a bit of damage) from last years hurricane that hit them. They did not evacuate last year and I think they are going to be stubborn again this year :o :( Anyways, hope everyone in the storms path is safe.

Kaiti, hopefully your family will do better this time since they seem to have dodged the bullet. As for us, so far, so good. We have lost a couple of small trees and have seen lots and lots of rain.

As for the pain, I have transitioned through Lidoderm patches, then Ultracet, on to Darvocet. Good stuff when desparation hits except for the really weird dreams it invokes. I ran into the outfield wall during a Braves game in one and drove my van into a river in another. How strange! One more day say the meteorologists. I hope they are right.

We got an update from them...they told us the storm is expected to go right over them but they think it is not as bad as Ivan was last year and hopefully they won't have as much damage. I think at this point they are most concerned about the flooding that they could get. My uncle said that(about 3 hours or so ago) it was a steady 80 mph wind and he said he was bored lol...they said later this evening and overnight it is expected to get worse but by the looks of things, it was not nearly what they were expecting, which is good.

We are okay. A couple of small trees are down in the back yard and we have had lots of rain. My pain levels have stabilized after I finally resorted to Darvocets. I do not like to take them for a couple of reasons...they can be so addictive and they trigger some really weird dreams. I ran into the outfield wall of a Braves game in one and drove the van into a river in another.  Neither the umpires nor my husband were happy in those dreams! Hopefully the meteorologists are correct and it will only be one more day before we all get back to normal.

My area is under a Flash Flood Warning this morning and I can see why :(
my back yard is completely underwater, my front yard is getting that way and I've already got water coming in my garage, kitchen and laundry room

My pain levels are extremely high right now. Last night I could hardly walk, my ankles and knees and hips were all locked up and my neck and shoulders are hurting really bad. I looked at the radar and this one stubborn feeder band from Dennis is tracking right over us and probably will be for at least a few more hours.

That is so fascinating--the correlation of weather to muscle/joint pain. I will have to track myself in conjunction to weather sometime... Donna and Nisla--hope sunny skies reach you soon!

Nisla is not far from me. We have had more than nine inches of rain this week. Many of the roads are under water and closed. We passed a park this morning that was so flooded it was washing the pavillions up against the road (you know, the kind with those telephone posts buried in the ground for support). Entire neighborhoods are under water up to their roof tops. A local car dealership was flooded and has several million dollars in damage. I am glad my home is up a hill. It would take rain of Noah's proportions to get to us. At least the pain is controllable now. If they are correct, we should get a couple of days of respite before Dennis' remains backs up onto us again.

Donna, I saw that car dealership on the local news... yikes.

I live down in a valley, backed up to a (previously) dry creek bed... The creek bed completely filled up then overflowed... Of all the houses on my street, my house sits even further down into the valley backed up to the flood plain.

After it stopped raining, the lake in my back yard has subsided to a small pond :rolleyes: my front walkway is still under water, but my garage, kitchen and laundry room seem to be drying up.

We ventured out to Chik Fil -A with my mom and step dad and my niece and nephew so that the kids could run off some steam in the indoor play area since they'd been cooped up inside all day. I saw a lot of downed trees and ponding on the road and we only went about 2 miles.

You guys hold tight! I'm near Conyers/Rockdale Georgia (southeast of Atlanta), and we have gotten lots of rain too...although not as much as you all, thank goodness. I've mainly been concerned with the tornado(s) and high winds in the local area. Lots of trees down, home damage, utility damage, fires, etc.

Prayers for everyone who is dealing with this right now. Nisla and Donna, hope you don't float away :o ...stay safe.

It's raining...again. We are now up over 12 inches for this week. My husband has had to limit his deliveries for work because so many roads are under water. One of his employees was in that neighborhood where the houses are being condemned because the flood waters got so high. I felt so sorry for that woman witht the four week old baby having to be taken out in a boat by the firefighters.

The local news just indicated that we are in for as many as 18 more days of this. Where is Noah with his ark when you need him???

Nisla, I hope your home is drying out a little. Can you believe they are going to sell those cars after they have been under water?

Here comes another round of thunder, so I guess I'd better get off of here.
