    A category 3 is very serious and the "panhandle" area isn't used to getting hit often.

    It's a CAT 4 now?
    It's supposed to be strong enough to still be hurricane strength even after it reaches Georgia.

    It's a scary one.
    Very compact and powerful.
    My mother lives in a nursing home in Albany Georgia. They're already evacuating into a centrally located building with a generator.
    Who would ever think that inland Georgia would get hurricane winds?

    You know there's a $5 for bringing that up during hurricane season...

    Albany isn't all that far from me... I'm currently south of Monticello.

    Hope everyone in its path is safe. I know we have quite a few GA members. Been talking too one that's in the path. Tornados too happened earlier today. Luckily that didn't hit her. @Tom might still be in GA too. It already did a lot of damage in FL.
    Stay safe!

    My evacuation location (personal COOP site, for those of you familiar with the term) has been out of power since 1520 hrs, and internet connection is spotty.

    Monticello is out of power.

    On the bright side, the power was still on at my house, about 15 minutes away, as of a couple hours ago. If it stays that way, I may be able to demobilize and return with the critters tomorrow morning. Think good thoughts...

    My current location has a generator, but we haven't turned it on yet. It's mostly reserved for running the refrigerator periodically during an outage, to keep food cold, to pump water, and to recharge mobile devices.

    Its been raining here (Senoia, GA) for a few hours, but not much wind at all. Supposed to see the worst of it in the next few hours and then sunny by tomorrow afternoon here.

    Went out in the rain for Mexican food tonight. Not the kind of Mexican food I'm used to from Mexico and Southern CA.

    You couldn't find a decent taco in the UK if your life depended on it!
