Looks like we're good here. Hope it avoids those in JF's and Pan's areas.

Current forecasting is it will "just brush" the NC coast.  ::snort::

We'll see.

I'll be out tomorrow anyway; time enough to field my own odds and ends.

Does FL have those crazy unconstitutional laws about not carrying when crap hits the fan too?  Nothing like being disarmed by the state in an emergency to make one realize who is the biggest threat to your safety and survival...

Don't know about FL, but that asinine law in NC was overturned by the gun omnibus bill that passed a few years ago.  It's a law that demands to be ignored anyway.

And yeah...looks like the lowland state of Florida (especially eastern half) is in for a swipe...



...and then he'll spend what energy is left on GA and the Carolina's.

  Shutters up water good food is always good the last thing is oil changes to both generators and fire them up. Sitting on between 75/80 Gals of gas so that isn't a problem.

 Depending on how bad it gets and it does look bad I might be off for a couple of days.  Good luck and be safe.

Whoa!  Strengthening to a Cat4?!



Will be a 3 minimum for FL...hopefully you're a bit inland and away from the surge JF!

I do like some people's determination and sense of humor...as long as they know when to batten the hatches or skeedaddle!



Heh!

Yeah the Gulf Stream runs between Florida and the Bahamas, nice warm water fuel for hurricanes.  I expect storm surge will be bad in Georgia.  Notice the curvature of the coast, the Georgia Bight will experience magnified storm surge due to the coastline of FL and SC funneling the water in.  Georgia hasn't had a hurricane strike in a long time.

Stay tough JF.  Here's a resurrected image from Hurricane Andrew in 1992:
