There is a rule of thumb in life, "Do not make others look bad to make yourself look good". Frankly everyone is a little nervous about the impact of this storm. Frankly, this storm can have severe impacts on the South and Central Florida area. The risk of tornadoes are very high, the risk of severe lightening storms are also high, and tropical storm force winds or gusts are also can provide anything from isolated to extensive damage.
There is a tendency to look at the storm as one dimension riding on a line from point a to point b. However, environmental influences of many dimensions influence the severity of weather. The cold front that is to sweep down the state is like adding gasoline to a fire. A strong cold front meets a warm core system. That in itself is a setup for some very nasty weather regardless of if you live in SFlorida or Central Florida.
Everyone should be taking this storm seriously. Regardless of if that little line is right over your house, or 60-100 miles north or south of you. To claim people are acting like Chicken Little or Wishcasting does not contribute to this board. As far as I know the moderators welcome productive discussions on where this storm goes even from people who are not Mets (the housewives, the engineers, the accountants, and even people who can not spell or make grammatical errors).
The stress level is going to pick up soon, and its important that we be tolerant of everyones opinion, even opinions that clash with our own.
