Ah, the last that I saw it was still a TS.

I heard that they were putting it making landfall in N FL.

I'd be perfectly happy if it did one of those moves where it curved off to the northeast before it hit FL. I've got a bunch of family about 100 miles south of you.

I was getting a bit worried about my friends in the Turks. Previous predictions had it passing directly through there...after PR

I bet this thing crosses Florida, gets in to the gulf and hits us direct. Our rainfall this year has been unbelievable.

I just hate these things. Lets see how the new roof from the last hurricane holds up. Sure hope it tracks to the north.

Here is a great web page that puts all the info in one place.

https://spaghettimodels.com/

I hate watching The Weather channel or any local TV station they are all making people freak out.

I am already seeing people running around with Plywood and at the gas stations filling up gas cans.

/\ /\ /\ I don't. We just a new roof too!

I agree with the weather channel deal. Too much hype...just like they did the snow storms up north.

I put a new metal roof on 4 years ago, I had them re-deck before putting it on too.

I am about 100 miles south of the projected landfall, if it stays in the Cape Canaveral area.

I will look again tomorrow, as of right now I am not even bothering to shutter up.

Why not, Make sure it hits where it will do the most damage!

Piece o crap Dorian. The initial tracks were out to Atlantic, far from the coast, and weakening.

Now this. Gonna start prepping shutters tomorrow.

Just got back in from a provision run. My Mom stopped driving last December so I pick up provisions for her too.

All bottled water gone and all gas stations with lines and people jockeying for position. No friction though - everyone cool. Couple of the pumps had the yellow bags on them - meaning no more fuel from that pump.

I topped up the truck with regular and then got another 12 gallons in non-ethanol in several fuel cans for my generator, if needed. That should last me a couple days easily, which is probably all I would need if our power went out.

We have our own utilities company here and they are very responsive.

I told Mom not to worry - if it looks bad enough, I would come get her and bring her over to my place for the duration.

Should know a lot more by Friday.

Best of luck to all......and please keep us posted as necessary.
