Hurricane Irma is a Category 5 and is poised to hit Florida. The last Category 5 Hurricane to hit Florida was Hurricane Andrew in 1992! I remember Hurricane Andrew and that Hurricane was some real scary shait! People in Homestead had their roofs collapsed INTO their homes and I remember a crying man on the news saying,"We have no food. We have no water," after the Hurricane left him stranded(I think he said something like "My family and I were playing happily on the beach just yesterday, not knowing how serious the evacuation orders were, or how serious Andrew would be, and now the Hurricane has devastated us."

I remember school being postponed for 2 weeks(School was actually going to start roughly around the time Hurricane Andrew hit Florida) and it took a very long time to rebuild the damage that Hurricane Andrew caused. I remember our neighborhood looked like TRASH after Hurricane Andrew was done raping us and my father's friend named Victoria saying,"Oh my God," in a troubled and shocked tone.

I still have flashbacks of that horrible Hurricane Andrew and at least one Weather source has said that Hurricane Irma is predicted to be even WORSE than Hurricane Andrew. Hurricane Irma has already killed 10 people. So incredibly sad. I am worried about the imminent danger of Category 5 Hurricane Irma and the landfall of Florida and possibly Georgia and North and South Carolina! On a side note, Meteorologists are already looking at Hurricane Jose and Hurricane/Tropical Storm Katia! They are scheduled to come after Irma! We can't catch a break!

I'm praying for everyone in the path of Hurricane Irma. the latest forcast shows landfall over the everglades, if this holds good it will weaken considerably as it heads north. I should expect catigory one or two winds (Similar to last year's Matthew). Just take care of preparing for this storm (Fill all gas tanks (IF you can find a gas station that still has gas) stock up on non-perishable foods, shore up your windows if possible and prepare to go to a shelter if necessary. May God be with you all.
Pray for those in the path of Hurricane Irma!

Thanks, Donathan.

Same to you.

You are the one down there where the really strong winds are likely to hit.

You and yours stay safe and go to a shelter if it looks like it may become necessary!!!

My brother is in Pinellas County and refusing to panic...so far.
I tried to talk him into heading to Stark via 301 (probably clearer than the interstates) and then due north, but he isn't hearing any of it right now. I even offered to fly him out to The Den, or up here to The Estate In The Swamp, but noooooooooo........

Irma's projected track keeps on shifting further and further to the west, which seems like it would be a good thing for us folks over here in Orlando, but it's not as good as it might seem.

The reason for that is because the worst part of a hurricane to be in is the northeast quadrant. That is where the strongest and most damaging winds are. So if you are to the right side of a hurricane or if it is on your left, you are going to get a harder hit.

Still hoping that it weakens a lot by the time it gets up this far.

Better yet, that it veers offshore well before it gets anywhere near here.

J.m praying for those on the west coast, as they are going to feel the brunt of this hurricane. Ouch Stay safe everyone, and may God be with you. I once got a letter from somebody who had once been in a life-threatening position, his letter ended with "There is a God who answers prayers".

PRAY FOR US ALL!!!

WinkThanks, aka.
 
Just spoke with my brother...he is still in Tampa, but on higher ground in very solid place.
To me, this seems like a very slow moving storm. I don't know if that says good or bad things, but I know it isn't losing much punch.
 
Again, my very best wishes for all to pull through this. Take this opportunity to talk with family - you never know when it may be your final opportunity and this is a darned good time to make peace.
 
Finally, The Inquiring Mindless need to know if Donathan remembered to wear his rubbers when he wandered outside, or did he just stay inside and work on making 'Hurrycane Babies'?CryWink
I think the rule states that if you choose to DO THAT, then all your spermmistakes created today must be baptized God-fearing Christians and their names all are to rhyme with 'Irma'.
For example, if it has 'twinsies', the names could be 'Germa(than)' and 'Sperma(than)'.

I still have power as of this post.  ;-)  Expecting it to go out any time.
Pool's overflowed (yay tile grout job!)
Herded 3 cats into 3 different garages for the night (one neighbor doesn't know... LOL )
Freezers are closed, AC is turned down to cool the house.
Probably not going to sleep tonight.  Expecting it to get rough in the AM...

Cheers!

The storm is now a cat 2 and it's still down by Ft. Myers.

By the time it gets to Tampa it's projected to be a cat 1.

If that's so, here in Orlando we should only get tropical storm level winds.

That's why I'm hoping it won't be as bad as they're saying it will.

Of course, it's the tornados we have to worry about in the NE quadrant of the storm.

That, and buckets and barrels of rain.

At least, there probably is a lower chance of sinkholes due to low ground water levels.
