Fixed it for you. Stay safe man.

Stay safe Raub - of course, welcome up here if need be. This looks a bit more ominous than what we just went through with Hermine.

AR is really easier to shoot at a hurricane--- for me anyway...



Raub, get your evac plans in place and keep those doggies safe, too.

John Hammond's operation inspired me to offer my beagles to the storm gods. They'll be setup on Kure Beach by nightfall.

The storm continues to shift west which is very bad news for us. Many of the models also have it looping out to sea after glancing off of South Carolina and then coming back in for another direct hit here on the Treasure Coast. This sucks.

Golden Triangle Weather is my favorite site as it puts all the best maps together in one place. The first six maps tell it all. GOLDEN TRIANGLE WEATHER PAGE

Ok, looks like we are going to get punched in the face twice on this one. I am located just east of Lake Okeechobee on the coast. Respect the spaghetti.

The toughest part of this for Florida is going to be its slow movement. It's winds going to persist for days on its first pass then circle back for more.

It looks as though I may be spared from posting "for sale- freshly cleared Key Largo canal side lot, one lot in from Atlantic"...maybe. If it keeps up and goes a bit north.

I do think I am in for a first floor remod after this. Will find out later this month, coming home for a visit.

Just heard from the folks at Small Hope Bay, Andros Island. They fared pretty well.

I know right! Still not bad at all but supposed to start kicking in around 10 tonight. Hopefully the eye stays off shore and then we will be golden. The news stations however are calling for the end of humanity on the east coast.
