Looking more and more like the east coast of FL between Daytona Beach and Jacksonville is going to catch this thing in the face. Projected as a cat 3 when it comes ashore. Everyone be safe, be prepped out there.

I see by the latest projected track and intensity it is going to hit Florida on Labor day as a major storm. At the moment it looks like Orlando is in its sights. Not good for the tourists. I wish good fortune for those of you living along the eastern coast of FL, Georgia. Make your preps while you can.

It's there now as a very weak hurricane if it hasn't weakened a little.

Will be start'in up the genny today, but we are prepared, we prepare at the beginning of hurricane season not the last minute. People are already starting to get crazy. All the grocery store parking lots are full and gas stations have bunches of people going in and out, I expect it won't be long until the out of gas signs are posted at gas stations but we got plenty. Stopped into see the manager of Winn Dixie who I've known for years, he said the water is already gone, he shook his head and said "whenever a hurricane is mentioned the water is the first thing to go"...LOL I laughed and said "you know me we don't need any water". I picked up some T-bone steaks that were on sale. When leaving some people walking into the store asked us if there was any water left and we said "nope". We'll sit back and watch the madness of unprepared people at each others throat on the news as they scurry around trying to buy whatever they can get their hands on. Anywho we are in central FL, not near the coast...

I can't help myself. I prep and go crazy anyway.

Just in case I run out of milk sandwiches.

They also have sales on for survival stuff just before.

Me too. Got some preparations to do around the house, but already prepared otherwise. This one could get hairy.

If it stays on the path it's on, I guarantee it'll be at least a cat 4. It's got lots of warm water to travel across. They downplayed it from the start.

Hang-on brother, I think you're near Daytona? We are south of Orlando almost smack dab in the middle of the state...we'll be keep'in an eye on it....

Our daughter is up in Debary 24 miles directly west of Daytona at college but our best friends live 10 minutes away from the college on 6 acres of wooded land and their YUGE house is set way back in off the road so if they decide to evacuate the college she has a 10 minute ride to get to their home, an evacuation was planned out before she even started college cause being prepared and having a plan is part of being prepared. She will be in good hands with her god parents. I hooked her up with a go bag and put a couple of cases of water in her dorm room when we took her up there last weekend...LOL

Yeah I'm not sure how much they are throttling back on that to keep the roads and interstates from getting jambed up like they did with Irma. Lot of state officials still cant sit down from the ass chewin they took on that one, telling the whole bottom half of the state to jump up and hit one of 2 interstates heading north.

Like you, got a bit of bad feeling on this one.

Yeah, look at the position of that Bermuda high. Has it shifted north or is it my imagination?

We're working on some little things around the house. First hurricane season at the new place so this is run #1 of the hurricane plan. We're trying to come up with a day-by-day plan tonight of all the things we have to do before landfall. Luckily if the track stays we're good until at least Sunday.

It's crazy out here in South FL already. Long lines for gas, cases of water sold out. I went into Publix today and there was almost no bread on the bread aisle and the pasta shelves were really thinned out also. Thankfully I have gas, food and water already.

But I'm dreading hanging my hurricane shutters because it's a full day job and at 96 degrees and 85% humidity it's also a tough job.

Stay safe if you're in the cone of death.

Business as usual here in Tampa Bay, but I've got my eye on it, may see tropical storm force winds.

Here's another very similar site that has some slightly different features:
https://www.windy.com
One of the models here has it going across Fl, into the Gulf and making another landfall in AL.
