    We might get a little wind and rain, but the way it looks "at this point" it will miss us. But then again I did install the propane adapter on my generator today, just in case. :facepalm:

    A few of the models have it coming right up the east coast of FL:

    If that happens, I have a plan: Be somewhere other than where I am right now. :eek:

    Ha, some good vendors there -- Glass Bottle Outlet and Essential Depot. :thumbs:

    We're in northern Flagler County, 9' above sea level, with just a 15' dune between us and the ocean.

    Looks like we'll get the storm surge this time, and a pretty nasty nor-easter best case. Definately keeping an eye on it.

    I like these better. All but one has it staying 250 miles or more off shore up here.

    Models seem to be tightening on a path that stays well off-shore, at least in Florida:

    Unfortunately this looks like it could be ugly. I've got friends in Haiti too, just hoping they've gotten out by now. The whole country is one big mudslide waiting to happen.
