    There are some strange posters in that Tropical Headquarters forum. Explains why I hang around the Southeastern States area 99% of the time.

    Go home, Florence. You’re drunk.

    I prepped early, but didn’t have to do much because I keep a few things on hand 24/7/365 just as a precaution. Maybe I can burn through some of this stuff during a huge winter storm this coming season.

    Florence should be down in Miami by morning. I wasn’t wanting damaging wind and flooding, but I might be lucky to get a sprinkle out of this,

    That’s ridiculous. Surely people are aware that they’re getting shafted. I purchased several 40-count packs at Walmart for $3.76 each.

    I remember people doing that before Irma and there were instances of Amazon third-party sellers jacking up 24-count cases of bottled water to $40 and $50 per case.

    I have to remember take most of what I read on here with a grain of salt. Many (not all) have basically no idea what they’re talking about and try to hide their wishcasting within “trends” that they’re “seeing”. Cracks me up.

    Hurricane Florence

    It’s about a 50 mile shift to the NW since this morning’s 11:00 AM advisory.

    While reading the main tropical thread, I have to remind myself that this board is primarily comprised of professional mets (5%), amateurs with a decent command of the subject (50%), quite lurkers who seek to learn (25%), and morons (20%).
  10. So is this a good time to remind all the national mets how to pronounce Topsail?

    We have no shortage of those on AmericanWX.

    Hurricane Florence

    I don’t wish Florence on anyone and hope all avoid the worst, but selfishly IMBY, I’m pleased with the Euro trend. Half a foot of rain is bad enough, but I don’t want any part of two feet coupled with tropical storm force winds. We all love weather and the wonders it brings, but it’s not worth having a couple of huge oak trees on the house.

    My wife works with a lot of yankees and granola types in her office due to a corporate merger. Lots of people from New York and California. They all live in Greensboro now and none of them are taking Florence seriously. One guy told her, “Being 170 miles inland protects us from everything except some rain. It’ll die out at the coast. No wind or flooding.” Damn know-it-alls. Get back to us in a week.

    Oh, no. That means it’ll make landfall in Savannah.

    Hurricane Florence

    I’ve been hoping for long shot OTS solution, but that looks increasingly unlikely. This could be a once-in-lifetime event for millions of people in most of NC and much of VA. Prepare now.
