    Thumbs up Shuttle liftoff

    Who thinks it will get up today? Anyone out here to check it out?

    Weather is not looking good. My hubby is sitting out on the river behing the shuttle fishing with his buddy.

    Kaylee and I were woken up this am by some nasty lil storms. And looks like more are on the way and its not yet 11am. Looks like no shuttle liftoff today. And it makes traffic bad around here either way. Bad news is if it doesn't go off we will have another day of way too much traffic.

    If you want updates on your BB you can sign up for SMS alerts from the local newspaper, Floriday Today (think USA Today - they are owned by the same people). SMS alerts - http://my.textcaster.com/ServePopup.aspx?id=635

    Florida Today website - www.floridatoday.com

    The countdown blog - The Flame Trench - http://www.floridatoday.com/floridat...ogs/spaceteam/
    You can add this to an RSS feed you have or sign up with Yahoo Alerts to get emails or texts when it is updated as well.

    Enjoy!

    Re: Shuttle liftoff

    My hubby says its a secret plot between the local businesses and NASA to delay it a few times in order to get the tourists to drop a lot of coin for a few days. Of course my hubby also think it has something to do with the comet or astroid that is supposed to fly close by. He works with some strange people....
    If you do come out, traffic is bad, get where you want to be early, be ready to get wet, and plan to be stuck in traffic either way.

    Yuppers.... which will probably make traffic even worse as most people are off and places are closed on the 4th.

    I love the shuttles. Its a shame they have to be decomissioned in 4 or so years. But the new ones are going to be much safer, faster, and brand new.
