IRMAAA!!!
You may or may not be aware of hurricane Irma, a category 5 hurricane currently north of Haiti. (Click here for hurricane category definitions.)

Click here to take a look at Irma. (If you don't see the hurricane, be sure the 'Satellite' layer, and the 'active tropical track' and 'active model track' are selected from the "Layers" drop-down menu.)

I know there are at least a handful of IMLers (myself included) living in Florida. I trust that you folks, like me, are getting prepped, preparing to hunker down, and staying safe. We all know the drill.

Many of you know that Shannon also lives in Florida. If he lives where I think he does, there is potential for severe devastation. So Shannon, know when to hold 'em, and know when to fold 'em. Keep you and yours safe above all else.

If Irma makes landfall as a Cat 5, it will probably weaken to a Cat 4, which is still plenty destructive. But this is not a weather report. If anyone who has any mojo with manifesting/visualizing/imagining/reality creation would care to join in, I'm having Irma make a hard right, into the middle of the Atlantic ocean, where her eye wall breaks down, and she dissipates harmlessly.

Thank you.

Stay safe. Myself, I'd be high-tailin' to Kentucky or something, but that's me. I'm only accosted by tornadoes from time-to-time, nothing compared to these hurricanes.

Mother nature can you chill for a little bit though.

RE: IRMAAA!!!
Thanks, RT. To me tornadoes are much worse, as they pop up so quickly. And even in their given path, they can unpredictably touch down or skip over, seemingly at random. At least with hurricanes, you've got plenty of warning. At any rate, these are massive forces at play, and they must be respected.

Hope you're not in a storm surge area - former FEMA director says Miami won't survive a direct hit...which is exactly what Irma is going to do.

I've personally been through a handful of hurricanes, none of them a category 5. Hurricane Charley was probably the worst. He was a Cat 4 when he made landfall, and was probably Cat 2 when he hit my house. It sounded like a freight train running through the neighborhood. My roof held, but the wind was blowing the rain sideways, as in parallel to the ground, and some water came down the chimney and into the house because of that.

Irma's track is still shifting, and they're projecting she'll be a 4 when she hits Florida. Once she arrives, your options are void, and you have to ride it out where you are. Just be careful, it's not worth losing your life over.

Nice try. Everyone has already read the NOAA hurricane category definitions that clearly show there are only 5 hurricane categories.

Thanks for playing...

I've been through sooooooo many hurricanes. Andrew, KAtrina, Wilma, Matthew. The evacuation is as bad. Stop and go traffic all on the 95It takes 8 hours to make it out of FL from miami, Its taking 18 now. Flight prices have quadrupled (as did everything else), I'm riding this out.

I hear you. Bugging out has it's own set of headaches.

It sounds as if you are a seasoned pro with hurricanes, so I hope you stay safe, dry, and may your power outages be short!

FPL does slimy shit last year during Matthew they cut our power during the storm and we barely had rain. Matthew may have affected other areas of FL but I guess we were lucky it amazed me that our power was out for so long.

We've got Duke Energy up here now, so we'll see how it goes. It does seem like we've been having more short-term power outages since they took over, but it could just be the aging infrastructure.

RE: IRMAAA!!!
Irma is now making landfall near Marco Island Florida. She didn't shift very far west, so the entire width of the state is getting hammered. If you look at a radar picture of the storm, you can see why the east side of a hurricane is the worse side to be on. So Shannon is probably experiencing bands of heavy rain and tropical storm force winds, with scattered tornado activity. Edit: Shannon said: "Currently getting tropical storm force winds, and seeing branches break off my trees"
