    or those poor saps (usually cub reporters) standing in the rain, or almost being swept away by the strong winds, or - and this is the epitome of idiocy - reporters asking hurricane victims how they felt or what went thru their minds.

    We're doing OK here in Palm Coast.......everything is set for as good as it can be, and have a bag packed......*just in case* but we do not have a mandatory evac order. I keep tabs on the local gov directives and of course my friends who in a lot of instances, have more concrete information! None of us in our local neighborhood usually get mandatory orders and except for volunteers, we usually stay......we sat through the big three in '04, but with Irma, we did leave cause we had an emergency in N.Carolina........so it was a twoferone.
    Because I cannot tolerate the noise of that wind, I have my ear buds ready, then my ear phones on top of them, and burying my head in the pillow that will accompany me in one of the interior closets on my Yoga mat with our dog, Abby! :) Husband is free to join me!;)

    Some parts of Palm Coast do have a mandatory evacuation order:

    But look at the bright side, ya don't have to deal with stuff like this in the winter. (That was the driveway to our cabin in SW VA last November).

    ROFL. I had a discussion with the DH today about moving south when we retired. FL is not an option in his mind, VA or maybe SC is the best I can get (as of now). I'm watching because I care about all of you in the possible path. There's lots of hype here in the news too.

    It never was in mine either, but my wife insisted, and you know what they say about a happy wife...

    Now I've come to really enjoy the time we spend there, but I don't think I could have it as my only home. If it were my only home, it would have to be a hurricane-proof fortress. Yes, it's possible to build such a thing, but it's probably cheaper to have two homes than to do build one that way.

    Woohoo! With the 11pm update, the projected track has moved eastward a smidge, and for the first time, the cone isn't touching FL at all.

    Keep working on your hubby. North FL is very similar to SC for day to day life, housing costs. A bit hotter but cheaper to live here overall. We don't pay state taxes and our SS is not taxed.

    And we're glad to have you :wub:

    8:00am this morning, the track is even a bit further east, with more gap between the cone and the coast:

    Ocean conditions at my place are still entirely reasonable this morning:

    This predicted track may be a bit closer to the coast just above JAX than the 8 am one, but she'd down to a Cat 2 the whole way up.

    Ocean at my place is getting a tad rougher:

    Patience, Grasshopper! I expect you'll get :censored: on quite a bit tomorrow.

    But I don't think it will be all that bad for anyone who isn't right on the coast. :oops:

    I'm trying :confused:

    The problem here is if winds reach 40 mph, the bridges get closed down. You don't get very far in Jax without crossing a bridge. I'm frustrated because my boss can't decide whether we are closing or not which makes it hard to plan. Right now I'm spending way too much on labor just in case.
