    Sally

    I watched a live TV report from Gulf Shores a bit ago. The newsman was at The Hangout. He said that he saw what he thought was a part of a pier float by. I HOPE that he was wrong. It is sure nuff rough there. All ya'll be safe.

    Think it was a piece of lodge beach walkway. Perdido bridge walkway and Ono island piers getting ripped.

    Whatching tv the weather channel. The guy is talking about Sally and is standing in front of the pier. Looks like the front be rail might be damaged.

    Well here we go, it's midnite on the Gulf Coast and Sally just got her panties into a wad and strengthened back to a 100mph Cat2, and finally formed a rough Eye approx 50 miles across.
    Anything along that Eye wall is gonna get the brunt of her b!tchiness.
    And it is also now pretty apparent the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach is dead center in her sights, along with Pensacola.
    Everybody along the beaches and South of I-10 there better have their insurance paid up!
    To all our locals down there, I hope y'all are out of town or in a reinforced building.
    I pray for your safety and homes.


    And it goes without saying... The Pier is going to a Heavyweight pounding tonight.
    I sure hope it's still standing and structurally sound come tomorrow evening.

    I gotta say,...since I fished right under the pier just this past weekend I really got to look at the way itís constructed. I paid it a lot of attention. I really looked at how it was made and was awed at the incredibly massive structure and how it was put together and anchored. Simply massive. But.....now Iím equally awed, (and saddened) at the power of the sea.
    Itís that power,...and itís relentlessness that made that massive structure fly to pieces like matchsticks. Damn,...just damn.
