Hurricane Frances and the number 13

    Is the number 13 unlucky? I didn’t used to think so. As trackchaser report readers know, I am just 13 tracks short of reaching the elusive 100 tracks in one

      Is the number 13 unlucky? I didn�t used to think so.
      As trackchaser report readers know, I am just 13
      tracks short of reaching the elusive 100 tracks in one
      season. Carol and I have two tracks scheduled for
      this Saturday in Florida.

      There�s just one problem. They�re expecting a
      category 4 (or higher) hurricane to hit Florida! That
      would be Hurricane Frances. No one knows exactly if,
      when and where the hurricane will hit. We were
      planning to stay for one night at my step-father�s in
      Auburndale, Florida. I just received a call from him
      and he is going to evacuate the area and head
      somewhere north. Since Florida just had a major
      hurricane hit (Charlie) a couple of weeks ago,
      everyone�s sense of concern is elevated.

      Actually, the main purpose of our trip to Florida is
      not the races. We have a 15 day cruise scheduled to
      depart Miami on Sunday afternoon with Carnival
      Cruises. We�ve had this trip planned for months and
      it would be a shame to see it cancelled. Carnival has
      already cancelled a cruise scheduled to depart on
      Friday.

      We leave for Florida on Friday. That SHOULD be a day
      or so before the storm hits land anywhere. If the
      cruise company doesn�t cancel our trip before Friday
      morning at 8 a.m., we�re heading to the Sunshine
      state. We may be the only folks heading into Florida
      while everyone else is heading out!

      Now that I know we won�t be staying with my
      step-father, it frees up where we might go racing if
      there is any racing to see at all. I don�t have that
      many available weekends to make up for cancelled
      races. The next few days might be very exciting for
      us. We�ve never been part of a hurricane before,
      although we nearly were in Hawaii a few years ago.

      I�ll keep all my trackchasing friends posted on what
      happens.
