Here we go again.  Irma is churning along westward in the Atlantic.  Looks fairly certain it will impact Florida.  Not so worried about our place in North FL,  but I am concerned about the condo in Miami.  Right on Biscayne Bay.  Wife is working down there now, and I'm trying to talk her into driving up to North FL early.  So far, she says her stubborn self is staying down there.

 Evil Buy a big fat term insurance policy on her stubborn self, now.  Evil

(Couldn't resist.  Have just been researching killings for the insurance money.  So my thinking is somewhat negatively colored.)

Actually I hope all turns out OK.  Been through at least two hurricanes that went up the coast to NY when I lived there.  Not fun, even in their somewhat depleted state.

I'm eyeing it myself.

I'm hoping it barrels into south Fl (sorry about your condo) rather then hitting the gulf and turning north. Storms just offshore push a lot of water into Tampa Bay.

My place is pretty high, but prolonged power outages can suck.

Also, Mrs. Mush didn't trim any trees while I was deployed, so I have some chainsaw work to do this week.

Looks like a predominance of the computer projections leans toward Irma looping around south Florida and moving up along the Gulf coast.

Hmmm... nearly all of those tracks will end up bringing us some rain. Looks like it's just a matter of how much it will have left when it gets here.

We have friends who live in Cape Coral and Ft. Myers.  The elevation is less than 5 feet in the Cape and around 8 in Ft. Myers.  We also have a place rented for the winter in Ft. Myers.  I sincerely hope that critter takes a hard right turn and stays out in the Atlantic.

I hope so as well, even though I no longer have family in Florida.  The FL Governor has declared a state of emergency ahead of the possible landfall later this week.  Prudent move in my view.

The 1800z GFS model shows an early Sunday landfall in south Fl. They are showing predicting it to hit with 140ish mph winds and run up the State.

That'll make a mess. 

We'll see when that right turn actually starts, and how sharp it is.  6 or 12 hours difference in when it turns could be a real big deal with this one.

On the current track, the Florida west coast should be mostly safe.  The tidal surge will get pushed away from land.

It's too far out to even think that out loud.

This far out the models slide back and forth a couple hundred miles each time they run them.

We should know approx how screwed FL is thurs night.

Right about now I'm thinking Montana, Wyoming, or Idaho is looking like an area to which to retire. As much as I dislike winter and snow, I dislike having the roof blow off my house even more.

Winter happens every single year.  And it's a couple months of suck.  A Hurricane is a more rare occurrence.  Plus the the area I'm looking at is 2+ hours inland, so storm surge is out.  I will worry about flooding, so I want something a bit above everything else.   But I'm more concerned about the other effects.

That's why I'm going for the Idaho banana belt. Some years they don't even get snow to speak of.

Fingers crossed for all the FL members!

One of the reasons I returned to Oklahoma after I got out of the Navy.
I was at least peripherally affected by 6 different hurricanes while I was in.
I've lived in Oklahoma a total of 28 years and I've never had any damage from a tornado.
We haven't even had any significant snow fall since winter of 2010-11.
