For our Floridian friends
Hope any of you on the west coast are either buckled down, or getting the hell out of there.
My wife talked to her brother in Bradenton last night, and he said 2 of the 3 acres he lives on are under water as it is. And it look like there will be several more inches coming tomorrow.
Hurricanes really never bothered me, hell, I lived in south Florida when Andrew came through(and various other storms over the course of 32 years). But something about this storm bothers me. If it doesn't get partially broken up heading over the mountains in western Cuba and it hits the Florida Straits at it's current strength, man there's gonna be trouble. Water temp there is about 86 right now if I remember right. That puppy could easily become a high Cat 3.
Barrier Islands will be toast!
Stay safe, my friends.
