keep your radar on them pop up storms have been a bear the last few weeks
Man don't I know it, we've had some big 'uns here in Winter Haven and on the coast as well. I saw about 8-10 wrecks on the way back from the boat when a big one came in.

I can see them coming on radar, but on one engine at around 8-9 mph, there's not much I can do about them other than to batten things down. Problem is, my electronics are on the bridge, but I can mark a heading and drive from below when things get rough. Those things usually move in and out pretty fast.

Heck, I ain't skeered. You have to be smart to be skeered!
