    No prob. I'm a weather geek. More importantly, one daughter & husband are in FLA (Gulf side), another and her hubby in central NC, and another and our grandson down east NC. So I"m paying attention.

    The 1935 storm literally washed over several Keys.
    Dorian is doing the same to the Bahamas right now. When the film starts coming in, it is going to be very ugly.

    RPD. Does not seem proper to "like" that but you're correct.

    Florida is lucky it is not going due west.

    It still brings east coast into line of storm. Who knows how strong.

    Best wishes those there.

    I'm beginning to wonder if Wisconsin thinks it's in a differing country than the USA. I mean, that hurricane could have destroyed all of Florida, and my guess is that I would have heard about it in the third story on local radio. After all, many Wisconsin seniors have second homes in Florida to escape bad winters here.

    It would be totally different if Dorian was bearing down on a bastion of Democratic Liberalism, filled with victims of oppression, like New Orleans.

    America was beaten up relentlessly by the media for several years over Katrina.

    Until she actually starts going North, I would treat her as she is coming straight through. No one knows exactly what she will do. Hurricanes can/do change course.
    I am in Okinawa right now, and wife and I bought a few little items for extra guests we may end up taking care of in South Carolina. But, we have a plan, and plan we will execute.

    We have to wonder in 1935 they did not measure wind or anything about a weather event any where near as accurate as we do now . So when they say something is the strongest, hottest ,coldest we have give it some room for error.
