I think those HIRT guys finally realized what they were doing was crazy. It would spook me if I had tied down a car, and when I went back looking for it was not where I left it.... And they had one short clip around dawn on a US highway showing the storm surge washing over the road. That scared me and I was just watching the video.

Just heard on CBS4 that they got a direct call from a Dophins rep that said that they have NOT rescheduled the game and that they do not know what they are going to do yet. My guess is that the game is not going to take place this weekend.

Power just went out for about a minute. First band of Jeanne is coming through. Relaitvely light rain so far, gusty winds.

These are the two worst TV personalities TWC has...and I have to listen to them all damn day because there's no local coverage of this...I suppose I could watch the Mess game for a laugh or some cfb.

Just got back from lunch, read all your posts, but no other sources...

My dear spouse and his stepfather have just had to go out to rescue some MH refugees whose car stalled on its way to our "family and friends" shelter. We are in Port Saint Lucie, the refugees are in Fort Pierce. It's a good bit worrying since the wind is getting pretty kicky around here.

One of my beachside neighbors evacuated to Tampa during Frances but is staying with friends on the mainland in Melbourne this time.




I think a lot of people are reconsidering the long range evac plans. I know I was considering Georgia last time as a destination but it was miserable up there too. Big storms like this, there's no place to drive to that's much better than staying put. I mean they evacuate people TO where I live and I have a sturdy building. Last thing we need is an extra million or so people on I-95.

Hey, I know we are talking wobbles and what for, but take a look at this comparison:

In the 11:00 forecast discussion, the 12 hour forecast was 27.0N and 79.5W. Currently, at 3:00 p.m., the coordinates are 27.0N and 78.4W. Wobble or not, the storm is tracking a bit north of forecast and will probably come in closer to Ft. Pierce to Vero Beach..assuming it continues to stair-step.

HAs anyone predicted how long hurricane conditions will last when they finally reach a region? For instance, living in Polk County, if this storm is coming in at an angle, the county is further in miles from north to south than it is from East to West. With a 14 mph forward speed, assuming that it stays that fast, it could take 2-6 hours for the eye to come through and pass on to the next region. Have there been any estimates?

Hi Redbird,
When the chores are done, maybe it's time to use up the ice cream in the frig with floats or sundaes.
Surprise the dears!
