If it's any consolation to you Pinky, my dad's a truck driver, and he just came back from Miami earlier this week, while Sandy was down there: while he does admit that the high winds presented a challenge for him and his truck, he made it home in one piece. Surely, Mr. Pinky will be fine... I honestly believe that a lot of what they talk about regarding impending storms is a little overinflated hysteria anyway... take last spring, for example, remember when it was all over the news about that "super storm" system that swept through the south for an entire week? By the time it finally got to us, it wasn't quite as bad as everybody was making it out to be: yes, there were high winds, yes there was lots of rain, yes there was some hail, but damage was minimal at best (the "preview" storm we had the Monday before was a lot worse). Just some food for thought.
