Was watching Bryan Norcross a while ago (maybe 30 mins?) he was talking to someone (having senior moment here, it was not Max Mayfield) at the NHC. There is no eye, just a "center of circulation". They were discussing how difficult it was to use radar in these kinds of siutations to determine direction. So its not you!
They also said it was possible at this point that no eye would ever form, that the wind field had become so dispersed, and so close to landfall, that there was a good chance that an eye would not reform. However they did emphasize this was still a strong and dangerous hurricane.
Right now where I am in Miami it is like a fall evening. Temps have dropped into the upper 70's, variable breeze, cloudy now (it was clear until about 30 mins ago).
Update: forgot to mention, Norcross was pushing the NHC guy about motion. Norcross was asking if it was moving at all, and the NHC guy dodged the question, twice, then Norcross gave up and went on to something else. I thought that was kind of odd.
