Dorian

"People along the northern Gulf Coast should also be aware that there is a decent chance of a Gulf Coast landfall from Dorian next week."


Check on your gas supplies, food, batteries and crank that generator up just to make sure it works.

    gas stations in Groveland were hammered last night.   Every shopping cart at the grocery store had bread and water in it.

    Generator does an automatic self check and runs for 10 minutes every Saturday at 1p. Dorian could get interesting....

    Dorian helped us cancel plans for St. Augustine this weekend.  Praying it's a swift mover with not much damage WHEREVER it strikes.

    Possible cat4 at landfall. Most of Florida will feel effects in some form, with Georgia looking at some tropical conditions as well.

    Meh.  
    No way a storm named "Dorian" can be any tougher'n a popcorn fart.

    After what we went through with Michael, there's no humor in Dorian.

    We are pretty much sold out of gas and bottled water in St. Petersburg.
    People here have really hit the panic button after Irma.
    Homosassa is sold out of gas as well.
    It’s good to see people are preparing early.
    Our forecast is a Tuesday landfall.
    Anticipating a Cat 1.
    They won’t even close schools for that.
    Ha Ha....
    I have batoned down the windows and will do an outside prep Sunday.

    Evacuation has begun on the east coast.
    Traffic is bumper to bumper in Orlando.
    Tow trucks are running 3 hour ETA’s.

    It's a tough one to track, but we are ready.  Wife has been in panic mode since I will have to be at work if the storm comes here.

    People are freaking out here. yesterday gas stations were a disaster, no water in stores, just crazy. I get being prepared but dang. even if it comes here it won't be until Tuesday. Those that filled up yesterday must be going to park their vehicle until next week.. If not they will have to fill up again.

    The roads in Orlando are bumper to bumper this early?

    Hope that's just local traffic trying to stock-up, not the Interstate.

    If this evacuation is a mess, the state will push for another North/South artery.

    There's supposedly one planned, but no schedule for construction, much less financing.

    It's a bunch of idiots is what it is. Of course, that's what it always is. But today, they've been instigated by the media into a frenzy.
    I enjoyed driving by the gas stations and watching the baboonery taking place between the landscape crews trying to get gas to do their job and the local tardocracy trying to fill up their Kia Sorrentos 5 days out from the possible storm in order to stay alive.

    The gas stations in Carrabelle don't seem too stressed!

    Need fuel? 
    We deliver...

    The sun coast parkway AKA Veterans Expressway is an under construction toll road from Tampa Fl to Georgia.
    Hwy 19 is already a good alternative for I 75. Complete waste of money.
    Hwy 41 is the other desolate trek north.
    plenty of fuel available.
    This population is glued to Interstate Traffic.

    Even without a hurricane, I-75 can be a nightmare.

    A few years ago, we managed to hit the "exodus" weekend.

    All the snowbirds, and Canadians, were headed back North.

    From the Fort Myers area to Gainesville should be 4 hours, at worst.

    It took us eight hours ... a fender-bender or two made for total chaos.

    If there is anything left in the northern Bahamas it will be a miracle.

    We just moved our daughter into her new apartment in Savannah this weekend for her second year at SCAD there. Then we all turned around and went back to ATL with the mandatory evacuation...Hope the storm stays far enough offshore to just be a big annoyance. Be safe everyone!

    Looks like it is decreasing in intensity (Cat 2) and trending further offshore until N.C.
