Had a debate about that recently with someone who believes they say it like they do in NY. It's also pronounced "al-banny"

Good news is that as of 2100Z the diameter of hurricane force winds is down to 60 miles. By morning it will be a tropical storm with a diameter of 60 miles & moving very quickly. A good thing. Lots of rain still to come down over a wide area before the center of the remnants get over water again & maybe do some regeneration.

The damage is quite something to see. Wood frame buildings do not stand up to high winds very well. Tough to beat a stone house. The big bad hurricane can huff & puff but the house will stand. Problem is, a stone or concrete block house costs much more to build. Mine is a 12" thick stone block house. In 2003 we had a slow moving cat 3 gust 4 storm ontop of us for 24 hours of hurricane force winds. 6 weeks no power.

Zero dollars damage done to the house. Yard trashed good & proper though.

We have reservations there for the first week of next May and I'm wondering if it will even be open by then......not sure what the extent of the damage is but I imagine it is extensive.

*Edit - Sorry to hear about your loss Xflyhighx, glad you're not one of the people who decided to "ride it out".

Sorry to hear about your house. Take the opportunity to build it back to even better, hopefully.

If I was in a hurricane area and the wind hit like Mexico Beach, there wouldn't be a window or door within miles, I have that much junk in exterior storage sheds.[emoticon]
