Single hurricane thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I have another story about Ivan that's pretty good at showing the crazy places a mind can go when alone in the dark after midnight during a hurricane.
Or even a long distance from a hurricane. Back when one passed over the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, I jokingly speculated that the storm's lightning could ignite the oil and the whole thing could come ashore as a hurricane of fire.

In hindsight it was in bad taste, much like joking about Donald Trump being elected President.

Damn, someone just rented the house starting Saturday.

My only chance now is a mandatory evacuation.


Not gonna go look through old NOAA storm tracks, but if memory serves, Opal was predicted as a nothing storm that would hit NO or west as a TD or a cat 1

We had very little warning of this huge cat 4 hitting Pensacola.

We did have a lot of small live fish in the yard after Erin

Nate is supposed to move too fast for rapid intensification. But isn't that what they said about Opal?
There are so many variables, best to hope for the best and prepare for the worst. Category can be misleading- already 17 deaths in Nicaragua and Costa Rica. Even this far inland, Opal, Frances, and Ivan scared the crap out of me.

All the old car people have been asked to leave. Imagine being caught in that mess.

One of these days I'll write out my whole Opal experience. For now just a hint.
I ran, traffic at standstill, sheltered in a ft Walton biker bar, county suspended alcohol sales, county announced that they were closing county lines to all traffic in and out for 3 to 4 days and it's still just the front side of the storm - it gets better.

Bottle of Woodford and some really pretty buds.

On 2nd thought midnight might not be so bad with a full moon. Still hoping the renters vacate.

It's Hurricane Nate now.
TS watch extends all the way up to the TN and NC lines, and as far east as Atlanta.

Up to 80 and wu is still disrespectfully calling Nate a TD.
