Yep; and Jose is right behind.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Saw a news report the other day that suggested we are returning to statistical norms. 12 years without a major hurricane(Cat 3, 111mph winds) making landfall in the US......previous longest period of time(8 years) was almost 150 years ago.

The average is ~ 2 years.

Could be a rough ride for a few years.

It could come right up the pipe...hopefully it will kick out and not do that.

Hope all in the potential path stay safe. It keeps looking worse, not better.

I don't know where you got that information, but it is totally twisted.

And maybe I just dreamed where I was last October when I had to evacuate NC. I guess that last year's hurricane that hit the East Coast didn't count since it only did $1.5 BILLION of damage, and it only killed 48 people. The confirmed deaths included 12 in Florida, five in South Carolina, three in Georgia, 26 in North Carolina, and two in Virginia.

I highlighted for emphasis hurricane strength at landfall on US soil. That is what the article that Zep and I are referring to is talking about. Mathew did indeed cause a lot of destruction and heartache but it was only a Cat 1 when it hit South Carolina.

This storm is a monster. The four strongest structures on Antigua are destroyed according to the French minister. That is not good for the shanty's that people live in there.

I do really like to see how fast Trump is acting in mobilizing aid and help. Maybe its not as well known that the previous administrations acted as quick, but seems to be very quick to act. I think Bush took to long with Catrina if I remember correct. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Cheers Don.

I saw some storm footage that claimed to be from St. Maarten.

If it was real, it was brutality rising.

I just talked to a cousin in Key West. She is staying. She has worked for a high-end resort for about the last 35 years. She says she is safe for a Category 4. (I didn't ask where her new Honda car was.)

Earlier in the day I talked to her brother in west Houston. He made it through OK -- but only by one city block. He says that he only lost power for about an hour while he was asleep. He said his biggest issues now are the winds and all of the trash that is drying out and blowing around from all the homes that are being gutted. He said that there is so much trash that the contracted services can't keep up with it.

I'm sure glad we had a family reunion a few weeks ago.

Stay safe.

It has been very hard for people to get gas and water all week. I gave up on getting ethanol free gas for my Genny after trying for three days and just got regular which took two days because the stations keep running out, I had to make several trips. They have been refilling on the regular but the tanks are quickly drained. I am blessed to have a free flowing artesian well so drinking water is not an issue for me. My lot is pretty high for my area so I am only worried about wind. I am solid block with brick so my roof is my only concern. From the direction the wind should be blowing I don't really have any tree that would reach the house if toppled. so here is to hoping things don't get scary in the NE Florida area.

If you need to use ethanol fuel add some sea foam fuel additive. I use this product in all my small engines and they fire when I need them to.

DonoBBD,

IIRC, Bush acted quickly on Katrina but FEMA(and other Federa and state agencies) was woefully short on resources and planning to handle such a immense undertaking because it never expected such a catastrophe. I "think" that the better responses seen for Harvey and (hopefully) Irma are a direct result of the shortfalls in Katrina.

Any body heard from Bobby? I can't remember where in Florida he is. Whopper of a storm, and then Jose may come on Irmas' heels.

CMM, I thought about him as well. The current path looks rough for sure.

I hope all are well down there, or have gotten out safely.

The new European model out this afternoon has Irma making landfall on the east coast of FL. Right now it is still a guessing game on where it will turn north.

I'm east central, trying to figure out if we join with relatives in Tampa or stay put....Probably decide tomorrow afternoon or evening as the models consolidate on path and category.
I'll be happy if my roof isn't floating in the pond (and I am alive to know that.)

blue_green_spark,

It sounds like you are just a bit south of my brother in Palm Coast. He works in Daytona. They have tentative plans to evacuate.

Be safe!

Ya gotta think like a pond owner. The floating roof would sure be good structure for your FHM to spawn under. Seriously, stay safe.
