Don't be short sighted on this ... i had way too many relatives try to ride Florence and wished they would have left.

This looms ominous for the PCB and Crestview areas. Cat 4 projections are not going to do well for the area.

You're the best, Croc. Always thinking of others.

No sense in freaking out. I make the preparations I need to make and hunker down.

Not my first rodeo.

I am ready to rock. I've still got my plywood from Irma and now I have three generators in the garage. Even if I lose power, I'll still have AC, hot water and a working kitchen.

Gotta work today, but just some last minute clean-up to do this afternoon.

The good news is that it should blow through pretty quickly.

Well, I'm off today through Thursday. Got the yard prepped and tons of water. I think we're riding it out since the gf is working today. I think traffic would be awful tonight. About to venture out in search of gas.

The gas thing shocked me during Irma .. apps like GasBuddy are vital. Full everything you can. Also I would get some cash out.

Also when cleaning your yard, either influence your neighbor, or take action to clean their yard too. Insurance may not cover "any debris".

Experience factor

Michael continues to strengthen more than predicted. Not a good sign.

Good luck to ya MB and Duece. These quick forming storms can be some of the worst hitting.

Hi Bucs fans. Hurricane Mike has been upgraded to Category 3 hurricane at 120 mph and headed to The Florida Panhandle. 90-95 eastern winds from the Gulf from Mike into Tampa Bay. :roll:

Hurricane Michael has intensified to a Category 3 major hurricane and is forecast to strike the Florida Panhandle Gulf coast Wednesday with life-threatening storm surge flooding, destructive winds and flooding rainfall. Michael will also spread heavy rain and strong winds to other parts of the southeastern United States after it moves inland.

This is likely going to be at or near Category 4 when it makes landfall. Possibly stronger than Irma when she had her Keys landfall.

Luckily this one appears to be moving fast. Irma’s lazy slow ass lingered.


Good luck all.

Irma's issue was her size. Even if she was moving faster, the damn storm was bigger than the state of Florida.

It'll still be a cat 4 or damn near it when it makes landfall. This **** is not a joke. On top of that, that particular stretch of shoreline is really, really susceptible to storm surge.

Yup. A couple of the mets on the discord that I follow have the surge potential at catastrophic, and that surge itself could be near what a Cat 5 level would be.

My prevailing winds are going to be out of the north. Could see a 125mph gust today.

The shingle pattern and ridge cap on my roof are set for a prevailing wind out of the south.

Dammit. I'm gonna have roof damage.
