It keeps moving west, so good for people on the east coast, right?

  Yes good for the east coast bad for the west coast but it's down to a cat 3. It isn't much but closer to what most housed built after Andrew can take for the most part.  Nothing is built to take a cat 4.

It's still got a wide reach...even if down to a 3 and on the west side...it's sheer size and rate of crawl is going to catch the unprepared and teach a lesson all the way up...

I just saw on the Weather Channel that water temperature in the Florida Strait is 91 degrees.  That is crazy warm.  That may well boost it back up to Cat 4 before it makes landfall.

  Thank you to all.  We've been getting the outer bands since early this morning but the main event isn't here yet. So far so good we have power and the roof is still on.  One town just north of me same county has part of it under 4 ft. of water and the tide is out and the real storm hasn't gotten here yet.  Rain has been falling on and off at an inch and half an hour and soon looks like 2 inches an hour will be here for hours.

 I'll stay on as long as I can and will check in when possible.

Prayers for your continued safety John.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

  Still here it's getting closer the rain bands are getting closer together but still the winds aren't that bad. It's supposed to step it up later today. Just north of me in Fort pierce (the next town over) part of US 1 are under 4 feet of water. Were keeping busy she's got me cleaning light fixtures(that's just nerves) .  On a lighter note I am baking a batch of chocolate chip and walnut brownies.

  I just checked on her and she's still cleaning the same spot that she was cleaning 10 minutes ago.   ::whatgives::

With a tall glass of milk....you could sell my clothes and shoot me. I'd died and gone to Heaven.

Miami ought to be interesting.  Vibrancy = looting.  I wonder how many are staying behind just for the looting opportunities.

Lo and behold:

They looted shoe stores, though you can rest assured no work boots were stolen.

And on your side the water must be coming back in...with high tide coming yet, right?

It will be interesting to see if my cigar order goes through this week...my supplier is based in Tampa Bay right by the airport!  A small thing to be sure in the grand scheme of things...

Uncle from Miami, his daughter in Virginia she said he and son weathered Irma.  No power, cell tower must be down so their very limited getting info out.  All okay, don't know about house in Keys.  Also heard about some friends in West Palm area, they are fine, lost power though.  Nothing from the rest.  Good so far, keeping fingers crossed.

And I wonder if this girl will be named "Irma"?

And I reckon the land-based threat now will be rain, wind, flooding...and the spawning of tornado's...

While one expects a piece of scat to be a piece of scat...one would think in a national emergency even a piece of scat would zip his fly-trap...at least until people get their lives in order again...but no, this piece of scat is incapable of basic human decency...a condition shared among all progressive assholes!

So, this is for you little Billy -  ::doublebird::

My aunt lives in Houston but fortunately lives in a suburb on high ground and escaped Harvey unscathed. 

At least it appears Jose is staying out further in the Atlantic...people battered by Harvey & Irma should get the break they need.
