  1. Yes-yes boys and girls! Will this be hype or real? Real hype? The Ytubers are hollering about NYC getting hit. :eek: Just as long as it stays out of Tennessee. Mom, my nephew and his wife live in Kernersville NC. :D Are they playing on Harvey fear?

    Irma German for goddess of war.............

    And 2 more behind her? o_O

    NYC does have a history of getting peelayed by hurricanes. And it ain't gonna be pretty if/when it happens again.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_New_York_hurricanes

    And the old timers there will shake in fear when reminded of this 1938 disaster:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1938_New_England_hurricane

    The problem now is the exponentially increased population density plus the rise of an 'entitlement' mentality where no one is responsible for their own well being. Not going to be pretty if a Cat 4 comes visiting.

    Probably a lot of the news media playing on fear.

    But I'm watching this one close. They say it has a good chance if hitting the Carolinas. And it's supposed to be a strong one. Having flashbacks to Hurricane Hugo. But I'm ready. Stocked up.

  4. Andrew came in to Homestead a very compact storm. It was moving fast. They claim they don't know how high the winds were. Some said 250mph+ the anemometer at NOAA broke.

    Still get a bit more water and gas. You can never have too much. Oh and TP, you can never have too much TP.

    If it hits the Carolinas, you might have me coming through your AO. My grandmother just bought a house in Wilmington and my mom is near Topsail.

    See the idea of living in a frozen waste land doesn't seem so bad now does it. We have the 4 seasons. Blizzards, wind, road construction, and mosquitoes. 3just happen at the same time.

    Just checked latest track from the National Hurricane Center... Florida Keys then into the gulf unless high pressure manages to turn it...

  14. Already water shortages in Florida. MIL said Walmart in Lakeland had 5 cases of water. She took 2 and a M****** took her cart with her purse. She stopped him. She was picking up the second one when he did it. o_O
     
  15. Well it was a pretty weird thing I found on short notice. :confused:

    They're getting awfully good at predicting paths for these storms so if you are in Florida, good luck.

    But I hope they're wrong and it makes the hard right turn sooner and back out into the Atlantic.

    I was in a couple stores yesterday and people were buying cases and cases of water. One Publix shelves were almost totally empty with only gallon containers left.
     
  18. 175mph and going to the Keys(?) And the storm in the Western Gulf can whack Florida too? Or both could end up in Houston/New Orleans?

    Have friends in different parts of Florida and they are all saying water is hard to find in stores.
