    Any storm that makes into into the Gulf I pay attention to. I am well prepared but this storm is going ashore well east of Texas. Stay safe to all in it's path.

    5 PM update today shows it coming ashore in Florida's Big Bend area as a Cat 2, we will be on the bad side (right side). Supposed to still be 60 MPH when it gets over South Carolina, so that means we'll probably get 75-80 MPH steady with higher gusts when it comes a-knockin' at Ye Olde Homestead.
    We will lose power for sure, but our roof is only 6 months old, replaced after Irma tore it up last year, so I'm not worried about that. Florida wind code requires all homes to be built to withstand 125 MPH winds. And the horse stalls I built myself have withstood every hurricane and tropical storm since 2002. Our sheds and barns are professionally built.
    I've got 30 gallons of non-ethanol 89 octane for the generator, and 7 twenty pound propane bottles for the kitchen stove. The well aerator holds 200 gallons of water.

    This is no big deal for those of us who have our sh** together.
    (Yankees, maybe a big deal)

    Keeps shifting east so it looks like we might be in the clear or at worst on the left side of the eye. Either way we will be ready. Had a party for the McGregor vs Khabib fight last night and I have plenty of beer and chips to last a while.

    Yes, it looks like we're going to be in the clear and I am happy for us. Someone's going to get popped, though.
    At least my vacation will be a go.

    As far as the fight, I don't want to talk about it. McGregor is an asshole, but I wanted him to beat the Muslim. So much for that.

    We went through enough of it here last year, someone else can have it for a while. This weekend is looking like a sunny 75 for us. About time fall got here.

    Not that anyone on here would, but don’t get to complacent with this storm. The NWS is now saying it will be a cat 3. Although they are looking at the big bend area of Florida they are also counting on a front that pushes it to the NE. Depending on the timing of that front it could land more to the west or more to the east.

    Now personally.. I’m looking forward to that front arriving sooner than later... cooler and drier weather!!!

    I went into the Gulf on Saturday, at Indian Rocks Beach, and the water was warm & great. Not the least bit cold, but not Summer temp either, it was wonderful. And the red tide is gone.
    [Yes, I am ancillary, and I miss the point a lot; I think that I just gave a beach report, instead of addressing the danger.]

    This one is not going to be a joke. Right now, there is a possibility of a Cat 4 hitting Panama City.
