    It's not looking good. Hopefully it will veer to the northeast and either stay out in the ocean or scrape the coast.

    Yeah, it's looking more and more like it's going to smack into Florida. It's going to suck.

    More assumptions based on nothing. They will not be able to make good predictions till the end of the week. My guess is it will miss Florida

    Just saw some radar. Without finding experts saying so, that looks like a 'tight' eye formation. Shit. I don't want to EVACUATE twice in 2 YEARS.

    I decided today that I am not going to go through another hurricane if I can possibly help it. As soon as my wife retires we are moving to Colorado. Fuck this goddamn weather.

    Everybody seems to want to retire in the south for the mild winters etc. But there seems to be a price to pay as in hurricanes, tornadoes, ice storms, and prolific flooding. Granted some of these things can occur in the north, but they seem to be more endemic of the south.

    I may be moving even farther north when I retire. I love winter with lots of snow!

    Good choice. Thank goodness you are both safe.

    Maybe now others will understand why I decided against retiring to a nice warm place in the winter.

    Outside of a rare tornado or windstorm I feel pretty safe in my rust belt State. our winters are getting milder. Two snows last year melted before we could use the snowblower.

    I love to look at snow,not remove it. Canada is beginning to sound good, but I had trouble reading their signs.

    Health care is good,though.
