    Well the Haliburton earthquake machine was fired up, might as well fire up the Haliburton hurricane machine as well.

Right now Florence is at 74 mph, which is two mph below the 76 mph needed for a Category One Hurricane.

    I hope the sheeple are buying preparations right now.

    Hognutz, yep I pulled out the Y3K supplies tonight after getting 'The Alert.' I'll wait to see what happens Tues for further action. Thanks for worrying about us! I really think it'll go north to NC.

    Well I just looked out at the ocean from the deck and it looks like the swells are definitely here. The surfers are already out there playing in it and you can really hear the roar now. The rip current risk is going to be off the charts. As far as I know, nothing from local authorities yet as far as what they are going to be doing here at Cape Hatteras. The National Park Service has a high rip current risk forecast out.

    Looks like a good day to take the wife shopping

    There are a few computer models showing Florence stalling just offshore the Carolina's and dumping 96 inches of rain. Let's hope that doesn't come to pass. Wouldn't get that much inland or on the coast but even a third of that amount would be devastating.
    What is the lake of fire? What is it's purpose? Is the lake of fire eternal hell? Is there any hope of escape for those cast into this lake?

Not saying that always happens... but honestly, the reality on the beach was way less "catastrophic" than Jim Cantore makes out. Yes, power was out for 2-3 days after Irene... yes, they ALL made a lot of tree mess that needed to be cleaned up... yes, the roofers/siding folks were massively busy afterward, in some places.

    But as long as you have some common sense and preps made (not just the liquor store run)... it's not life-threatening. You might go stark raving mad from the sound of generators running that long, though....
    I had an uncle killed in a hurricane in North Carolina, and he was about 70 miles inland. Two trees fell on his house..

    Living right here on the northern gulf coast, we always watch hurricanes closely...and we've had plenty to watch!

    I am in central NC and watching this with caution, it could hit Wilmington as a cat 4, and probably ride interstate 40 to Raleigh then on the VA!

    Yep, we are saturated already. A hurricane would cause so many issues, gonna be an interesting week. Just as soon as all the transplanted city putzs figure out we are going to get hit, the stores and gas stations will be empty.

    Well, this is the second day in a row that it's poured all day here - after 3 months of way more rain than normal this summer. Just heard flood warnings for Shepherdstown, WV - so Harper's Ferry is next and it'll keep rolling downhill to DC.

    I guess this might be remnants of Gordon? I dunno. But the 11 am NHC discussion is saying the probability is increasing that an OH Valley ridge will turn Florence right up the mountains to dump on us AGAIN.

    Where can I source a 150 acres force field bubble?

    Thats where I'm at and it will have an impact here. Right now it's raining for the lest two days and more to come for the next three days, this storm will only add to all the rain we have gotten this year.
    If this keeps up into November we may end up seriously buried in snow.

    I'd like one with a 1/4 mile radius.
    Variable strength of course.

    Fran was 1996, Sat

    I was still working then. I didn't think they would ever cut us loose at Bragg the day it was supposed to make landfall. Finally they did, and I went by wallyworld on the way home for some odds and ends - a couple more tarps, a roll of visqueen, staples for the staple gun, batteries etc. I was checking out in the garden center in line with the little old ladies buying flowers and plants etc. when a manager came along with a pushcart and asked if she could go in front of me in line to talk to the cashier. I let her.

    The manager gave the cashier a couple of plastic trash bags and a roll of tape, and told her "If the roof blows off, put these over your cash register and tape them down. And here's a flashlight with new batteries for you, see, it works."

    People stopped looking at my stuff funny at that point . And I quit worrying so much about being kept at work too long.

    Normally I would be the guy saying itís still to early to really worry about this hurricane. However no matter what this storm does in terms of strength, this will be a rain event for the history books.

    I wasn't worried about Irma last year...then the flippin wind took down a tree, it fell on my house ( a rental) and lay over a power line. Then the power came back on and sparked a fired. I was out of the house for 10 weeks while it got repaired. And since N.Ga was not declared a disaster area, no FEMA $ was available.

    The mountains of VA/NC may actually be ground zero for the most severe flooding inland.

    Matthew

    But if this one continues on its current path and really comes over at suggested strength, will make Matthew seem mild.

    We lost 8 - hundred plus year old pecan trees in Fran. Had a rental house cut in two by one. Sister's car was destroyed. It can get bad around here if the ground is saturated with rain beforehand causing trees to go.

    By the time it gets to you it won't be a hurricane.
    When it hits Wilmington it could be a Cat 4 and have winds over 130 mph

    Florence is officially a hurricane and a little disturbance has kicked up south of the Yucatan.



    South Texas may get wet.

    1. The combination of an upper-level trough and a tropical wave over
    the northwestern Caribbean Sea is producing a large area of
    disorganized showers and thunderstorms between Cuba and Honduras.
    Upper-level winds could become somewhat more conducive for some
    development when the system moves into the Gulf of Mexico in a
    couple of days while the system moves slowly west-northwestward or
    northwestward.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.



    Kinda looks like Florence may hook north after landfall.

    Seems like the Carolinas have had at least a dry run each year for a few years running now...and this might be the real deal...

    And yep, a new disturbance to watch that could sneak into the Gulf...

    Isaac is really uncertain...models I've seen want to take it straight west and bury it in Central America...

    Just saw a forecast that pointed out that Harvey started out where Isaac is now, dissipated, regathered in the Gulf, and became a Cat 4...and we all know what happened next.

    You just can't take your eye off these storms till they make up their mind one way or the other...

    One of my friends just posted an image of Jim Cantorie at the OBX (Outer Banks)... she's really scared now!
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.
