We are getting flooding and gusts here now. Expect to lose power soon. Ugh.
Be safe.
This thing is getting really ugly.
It looks like southernmost Florida might be out of the worst of it at this point. But these storms don't always follow the rules.
.(Its projected to increase)And it looks like he might become a cat 3 or 4 once he gets over that warmer water.

I'm beginning to see the "doom stories" as folks as asked/told to evac Tampa beeches.

Hope any of you guys on the Gulf fare this one without too much drama.....


Tam, you can print this to take to work;



Dear Tammy's boss,

She has water to clean up and won't be in tomorrow.

Signed,

Her friends

Thanks Jeff! I will add this to my strained back from moving heavy rat cages, my sore wrists from washing heavy tarps, and my eye strain from reading too much Nelson Demille.

What people don't know because they don't live in HURRICANE areas is how calm and beautiful the weather is outside of the cone. It sucks up everything.
We have suspiciously blue skies here.
(At least we did until about an hour ago)

I sure hope that our Florida West Coast friends will be spared most of the brunt of Ian.

Yeah, it's very deceiving. When we had a couple of hurricanes come up the Chesapeake bay in the 70's, Agnes especially, pulled all the water from Cornfield creek....doesn't sound like much but it's was probably 1/2-3/4 of a mile long and several hundred yards wide and avg depth of 8 feet

We stood on our community pier and the water was 1/4 mile away. The sky had been building for a couple days so there was no clear sky on our side but it was calm out......with no real hint of what was to come. Then it came ashore.....and killed over 20 people here in MD. 50 yrs ago, this year!

Are you in a flood area or towards the mountains?
In hills overlooking Kingston. About 2700 feet elevation. Landslide country! It's pouring rain, breeze and thunderstorms here right now. Watch out Florida folks! Including my daughter in Sunrise.

Schools just canceled here for the rest of the week. Our grandchildren don't get snow days, as their parents' did, so they all came home from school today pretty excited and happy.
