It looks like its going to do a circle again.......so it'll be days before we know where it'll go........we've just been warned that New England could get hit this year.....the water here is very warm....so that will bring the storms up the coast.....nice... ....but expected.......it was 10 years ago that we had our last big one......

Ah no, but when you live down here and are about to go RVing you tend to take notice of what the weather is about to do.
