    Going through the forums, getting a few laughs, learning a few things, I noticed there wasnít anything about Dorian.

    Iím sure we have some members in the cone or at risk and Iím sure, or hope, they are busy getting ready.

    Praying for all the folks in Fla... Most of my family is down that way but thankfully most are on the west coast and prepared.

    Itís interesting (educational) to see the news reports about the lines at gas stations, the empty shelves in stores and the actions of some folks.

    Well I would hope anyone reading this forum in line for Dorian is already prepared. Having a cup of coffee deciding when they will put the rest of the boarding on windows. Checking on elderly neighbors ect

    Who makes up these idiotic names for Hurricanes?

    I suggest we use Stripper Names!

    We are in the northern most tip of Florida.
    By the time it gets up here, it will just be a tropical storm.
    Yet people are going crazy, stripping grocery shelves like locusts in a wheat field.
    The closest town to us has 2,000 people and two gas stations, yet BOTH were out of gasoline yesterday afternoon.
    My biggest bitch is I’m supposed to fly out of Jacksonville on Wednesday morning to head to the 99th annual reunion of the 5th Infantry Division, and by then it is forecast to still be a Cat 1 and about 60 miles south of Jax.

    I do have family and friends still in the target zone, and a Cat 4 is a catastrophic level.
    Andrew in 1992 that destroyed the city of Homestead caused a major rewrite of Florida building codes, which are now the toughest in the nation.
    Heck, even our mobile home is rated for 125 mph sustained wind.
    I know that 80 mph winds barely ruffled the vinyl siding, and Irma two years ago just took some shingles off the roof.

    RPD,

    Might be easier to drive to Atlanta and catch your connecting flight there instead of risking the cancellations and delays that might occur in Jacksonville?

    I second that advice! Just make sure you call Delta first and tell them what you are doing or they will invalidate your whole return ticket. (I had that happen to me once, at the JAX airport even.)

    You need to head north and catch a flight.

    My worry is a great big, knarly tree that is right beside my house, if that thing comes down it will mash my house. The storm is projected to run out of gas pretty fast though; so if it travels to St Pete, it will only be a tropical storm.

    And the grocery stores and gas stations are experiencing a run, it is that way all over Florida.
