*****makes no sense to evacuate - the main roads are like parking lots and most gas stations are out of gas...hotels along the interstate all the way up the coast are booked....shelters don't take large breed dogs (i have 3) ...... better off to just hang out and break out the blender and the rum while we have power

****Been talking to my daughter in Jacksonville and she says the same thing..the media is blowing this up way bigger than it needs to be. Their lust for sensationalism is creating panic and chaos more than the storm itself. Stay safe and if the lights go out just use a spoon to stir that rum. lol.

**Yeah Winston, hope your folks are all ok......
**
**anyway I found this to be a bit weird/ suspect....fake news perhaps???
**
**I was watching the hurricanes progress on this site here.....
**https://www.windy.com/?30.553,-78.462,6
**
**and it gave the hurricane as following up the west coast, no diversion into centre or east coast at all.....
**straight up the coast ....you can see where eye is now.....up towards Alabama I guess......
**
**I tuned into CNN this morning and their hurricane chart had it veering right in between Naples and Fort Myers and travelling across up Orlando way....and towards Atlantic coast.....
**
**which to believe??......confusing....
**
**you there j,

*Thanks...
*Meteorologists are weather guessers..even on daily temperatures.
*Some are more reliable than others. Hurricane basically went up the west side of Florida in a NNW direction. I'll be getting some of the leftover wind and rain where I am later today into tonight. My family down there are fine and were communicating with me the whole time. They had a temporary loss of power and at one point their yard was under water but none of it got inside house so they are fine. Just waiting for everything to dry out and clean up.

Hi Winston, so glad to hear all well for your folks, bet you are too.......a real worrying time for all.

I was watching it on that Windy site, in real time, which is based on satellite observations and according to that it deffo went up west coast. I couldn't understand why at the very same time CNN showing it veering into central FL then up towards east coast???......just didn't sit right, wish I'd recorded some way what I witnessed . I agree meteorologists often get it wrong, it made me think what the??.....especially with talk here from people in the thick of it, of it all being overblown (pardon pun).....were CNN fearmongering the folks on east coast???.....

my folks are all good, no property damage, however power still out for them and Myakka overflowing in parts....

One of the fears for them I guess (apart from obvious) was looting, they own a pawn shop.....police had them remove all guns etc, as safety measure, which is a good thing, but then added pressure to secure them and their future livelihood ....some of the looting that has been reported is just mindboggling......can understand people without food/ water, but tv's and training shoes??....in my mind, necessities should just be given to folks in need, think it's disgusting that store owners can charge excessive amount of money for water in those situations.

It was also quite disgusting imo that so many on social media were delighted at the thought that Trumps property would take direct hit....don't care what anyone thinks of his politics, aren't people facing something like that all together???

anyhow glad all ok, wonder if it's safe to take boards/ shutters down until this hurricane season is over....
