Richard Branson may be my new hero. "Cat 5 heading towards my private island? Meh...I'll be in the wine cellar if anyone needs me"
The famous Princess Juliana International Airport at Maho Beach was very heavily damaged. Just awful...also, the St. Martin News Network is compiling a Facebook gallery of hurricane damage around the island:
Well, it looks like JHS is finally going to get their rain from a tropical system.
For those of us not in the path...
Traditional Hurricane Recipe:

Omgd Larry Cosgrove is an idiot with his statement about Irma

Well it looks like my CC might end up holding classes Monday and Tuesday, I'm not gonna go because I'm evacuating.
Lol what did he say?
evactuating from charlotte is a tad much, IMO
I'm scared of a Hugo-like situation over here.

it's just a few days without power, not that big of a deal. to each their own...I'm more concerned with Monday Night Football being interrupted if the power goes out.
better safe than sorry
Ok, Back home from work. What did I miss?
If you lived through Hugo, it's not a tad much at all! Looked like a war zone with trees and no power for 10 days! Read the GSP AFD from this afternoon, they seem a little concerned..
A few tiny westward adjustments!
How much wind for Carrollton?? Hopefully just enough to take out internet service !! Fingers crossed
After all of the out to sea talk, we may end up missing this storm to the west which is fine by me for multiple reasons. I'd actually be fine with not 1 drop of rain from it.
He wasn't even born for Hugo! I wasn't here for that, but I've been through Gloria on Long Island (tree on our house after that one), the CLT ice storm in what...03?, and got married in Manteo during Matthew. I stand by what I said, some downed trees and power issues aren't a reason to bug out.
Crap. That's getting closer to bringing significant threats to Atlanta. Maybe it'll be like winter storms around here and shift back east?
They are talking closing schools around my area Monday and Tuesday, so I guess the school districts are buggin!
Our principal back when Hugo hit actually came over the intercom and said" stop panicking ! In the history of our school system, we have never missed a day of school for a hurricane " Two weeks later when the schools finally opened, she had a big ole plate of crow to eat!
We got lucky with Hugo over here in Jonesville. He made a last minute change in direction that spared us here and sent worst into the Charlotte metro. If I remember correctly, the 11pm forecasts had the center going about 30-40 miles west, which would have pounded us here.
I'll believe it when I see it. The models will be showing this out to sea by tommorrow I'm sure

I do see it adjusting back east some, but probably not out to sea. I'll be shocked if they trend much farther west. It will probably end up in Fla, going back over that Atlantic and then making landfall around Wilmington and head towards Raleigh. Climatology will win this battle.
Thats what I keep thinking. Its hard to go against climo.
Good Lord - TWC has me at 37 mph (nice little typical FL thunderstorm) and Accu has me at 110mph ... What and who do you trust until you get slapped one way or another?
Go with Accu and hope TWC is correct...
There will be plenty of cheap firewood for sale this fall.... In all seriousness it's going to be bad for some folks on this board (pcbjr looks to get hit fairly hard)
