If you're wondering what the whole hooplah is over Hurricane Frances, check out where I live: St. Petersburg - my location is marked by the red sign. And see how big the hurricane is? It's bigger than the state of Texas!
I have been in St. Petes for three months now and there have been three hurricanes already. Forgive my crass statistics but for all I know, there's a 100% chance of hurricane each month!
