    Tropical wave 43 is centered near 14N/72W this morning. The wave is moving to the west-northwest at 12-15 mph. By Thursday, the wave should be moving into the northwest Caribbean Sea. Development chances go up significantly by then, as high pressure to the north across the eastern U.S. blocks any northward movement and pushes the wave west-northwestward and into the south-central Gulf of Mexico on Saturday. Once in the Gulf of Mexico, there would be a very good chance that this wave could develop into a tropical storm or a hurricane. It's way too early to predict a landfall location...

    I was fortunate enough to go to one the fancy pre-Supper Bowl parties last Saturday. I was able to get a ball autographed by the likes of: George H. W. Bush and his lovely wife, Don Shulla, Mel Renfro, Carl Eller, Charlie Joiner, "Moose" Bosson, Drew Bledsoe, Archie & Payton Manning. I would appreciate any suggestions on how to keep the autographs from getting smudged. I already have plans either to purchase or make a case for it.

  • Trpical Storm Claudette

    07/11/2003 5:03:05 AM PDT · by john316 · 39 replies · 291+ views
    Paraphrased from National Weather Service
    Claudette has changed little in strength overnight and the center is now located over the extreme northeastern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula. Latest satellite imagery continues to show a rather ragged looking tropical cyclone with most of the thunderstorms still located north and east of the center. The outflow has improved somewhat to the north and east of the center even though there still appears to be some shear affecting the system from the southwest. Claudette is expected to re-emerge over the southern Gulf later this morning, at which time a slow strengthening trend will begin, especially if the shear...

    I am sinner; I know that thru the sacrifice of Jesus Christ my sins have been paid for.  I try to be a good student and disciple of the Word.  My problem fellow Freepers is this.  Last weekend my ten-year old daughter became ill, nothing serious. However, it started me thinking of all the “what ifs”.  I am aware that a good many of the members of this forum are good God fearing folk and are probably having the same thoughts as I.  I had a fairly volatile temper as youngster and I’ll never forget sitting in the principals ...
  • Peter Jennings Lies (IMHO)

    06/27/2000 6:31:01 AM PDT · by john316
    I found the the peter jenings special last night on ABC "In Search of Jesus" quite revolting. I feel that most everything he did was in such a way as to say that Jesus was only a man raised by a single mother, with few followers and his only cause was political. The main thing that upset me was when he gave crediance to the "scholars" that said basicly all of the miracles were contrived propaganda ment to mimic the gods of greece and rome. One of the first things out of jennings mouth was a LIE. He stated that ...
