Quote: Writing from central Abaco here in the Bahamas. Unfortunately even with the shift to the east in the model runs this evening, it still looks as if we will take a pretty much direct hit here according to the latest update
Any idea on when weather may start going downhill for us here?
Any trends that any of you more knowledgeable at there are seeing that might have us luck out?
Ummm, I don't think anybody disagrees that a 4th category hurricane is about to hit you directly. You have about a day before the tropical-storm-force winds and small t-stroms start firing. From then it's straight downhill.
Find a place to hide. I really don't know what else to say to someone who is about to take a direct hit from an H4. Stock up on water, if you have drains in a basement, plug them because the water will be coming up out of the floor and not draining because everything draining will be filled. Food. Sand bag your doors and easy access to your house by flood waters. If I lived in a place like that I'd have those zip sealable bags for putting clothing inside that are like small garbage bags. I'd put a bunch of clothing in those.
Pray? Geeze. My own prayers are with you.
I'm sure there will be some lunatics somewhere there behind normal glass windows drinking beers, cheering to the storm and partying like a possible life-ending hurricane isn't coming. I think every hurricane comes with a certain percentage of those people.
