    Im surprised they didnt reroute the cruise.

    I was suppose to go to a wedding today on a cruise ship in Cape Canaveral. The wedding was to take place in port on the ship and then the guests disembark except for those going on the cruise (bride, groom, some of the family). It all got cancelled and after some scrambling they held it at a restaurant last night. Of course it was appropriate for the couple as its both of their second marriage....to each other. They "accidently" had a kid in college, then got married, he caught her in bed with another man, divorced, got back together and are now remarried. So an altered wedding plan due to a hurricane is par for the course

    Doc, I enlarged it and got more detail, and it looked very bad for your town. I know a "jig" here or there can make a ton of difference, so hopefully that will occur.

    Had someone tell me this morning to buy a couple of big gas cans and fill them up, and keep both cars topped off, said shortages are coming. I'm not sure how true it might be but it doesn't sound like a bad idea.
    Don't panic

    Re: Irma

    I just finished putting up the majority of my hurricane shutters. Still have 3 big sliding glass door but want them open until the last minute as well as our chimney box (wood box that goes over the chimney then is tap conned into the concrete--although this time I might also strap it down as well!). Also one outdoor TV that I have to pull down and Direct TV dish.

    Also trying to figure out which cars get the garage. Of course the 2 motorcycles have one but that also has tons of crap in it. The other one holds two cars after we cleaned it out and 4 candidates (Darrell thought it would be 5----I manage to reduce by one as my daughter is working for the Police dept and is on the next five days). Probably be the boys car since he has liabilty only where as I have total coverage. Of course I wouldn't consider leaving Shawn's car outside.

    Have 75% full tank of propane... a full tank gets me about a week of generator power so I figure I got 4 to 5 days of juice one we lose power. Filled up the cars with gas and got some cash.

    Think that the last prep we have. Got beer, bourbon, chips and hot dogs.

    The helpful hints I got.... things like fill up zip lock bags and freeze them, turn your to max cold now, etc... are mostly stupid common sense. One person suggest I put my important paper inside my dishwasher because its "waterproof".

    Folks in Kentucky should also take note of some of the latest models. Several show the sorms, after landfall in SC, the doing a loop de loop in Southeastern Ky. It looks like the center would be in the Middlesboro/Lake Cumberland/Danville areas of the state before exiting to West Va. winds shouldn't be a major concern, but flooding could be amsignificant issue. Don't have a link tomthe site, but folks back home should be on watch.

    Has anyone heard from Suncat. This storm can't be good news for the Lake Okachobee area.

    Take the #8 car and slide it behind the #9 car, then pull the #4 car down and shove over the other column. Then take the #3, do a "L" move with it and backward, and repeat. Then I don't know what you do with the motorcycles.

    My only other suggestion is to power bank your cell phones in case you need to post a recruiting thought. Remember what's important.

    Re: Irma

    Was in Perdido Key last night & went in a Publix to get some things -all the water was gone. I mean, every last bottle. And Perdido's way west of the projected path & this was 4-5 days before it would hit, anyway. This definitely has everyone's attention. Hang tight, Doc, suncat & others in the path.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Isn't Perdido Key out at the edge of the Fla. panhandle next to Gulf Shores? That's a LONG way from this thing for people to be hoarding water. Dang.

    Yep. About as west as you can get & still be in Florida. Found it very odd.
