  1. 11:00 PM AST Mon Sep 18Location: 15.5°N 61.4°WMoving: WNW at 9 mphMin pressure: 924 mbMax sustained: 160 mph
  2. Still 160 Winds. Pressure 924.
  3. Ok it's been heading North for several hours and is still heading north....would that not effect the track? I would think they would have brought the cone a bit eastward.
  4. We are. 15 miles southeast ILM and 20 miles from the coast of Oak Island NC.
  5. I am wondering about possible impacts for the Wilmington NC area? I am 10 miles west of ILM, Lucky for us we are at 75 feet above sea level so no flooding here. But winds concern me. Any inputs?
  6. Is there a point they would not fly into the core?
  7. RadarScope is worth every penny. Get the Tier one upgrade.
  8. Amazingly terrifying..... This could if it hits the Miami area and or the Everglades change the landscape for generations.
  9. My uncle who has a house in Key West said the cop that lives next told him at the 2 pm advisory if it is stronger they are being told the state will issue a full and complete mandatory evacuation of all the FL keys effective by noon tomorrow.
  10. I think part over it is the younger generation who are very very misinformed and gullible. And people teaching our kids who are way in left field. A neighbors kid (Freshman at the local CC.) was told by his professor that yes something like A day after Tomorrow could happen and likely will, and that Al Gores movie had more facts in it than any other source. I showed him otherwise and asked how old his professor was. 28. And what was he teaching? Political Studies. We do not need idiots like him teaching. We need our kids to learn facts. Not some Hollywood BS.
  11. Taking what I was told with a grain of salt but based on the possible summer forecast of cool and wet summer maybe there is something to this... I noticed on the highway the last several days and in town a lot of NCDOT crews cleaning out and redigging a lot of the storm drains. Today they were near where I filled up so I went and asked what was up. The foreman said they were told to clean out all major road way drains and ditchs because they were expecting a very heavy rain fall amount this summer. Who knows but it is kinda odd.
  12. I am wondering if anyone will make a VR weather app with the technology and cell phones are getting more advanced. It would be awesome to have full view and ability to see a storm in 3D and exact direction you look at. I imagine its a few years off but wow it would be a game changer.
  13. Yeah it grows pretty well here. Our whole neighborhood is centipede, Sandy soil, and lots of rain. Only 15 miles from the coast. Went ahead and got a bag of centipede seed and fertilizer this morning.... gonna mow the yard short, rake it, and spread both tomorrow. Then water it each day for a week or so. Should be good for the summer.
  14. The live feed is amazing to watch.
  15. My centipede grass is just starting to green up. And my neighbors weeds are 6 inches tall. I was thinking of using Scotts Bonus S in the next couple of days. Or should I use something different? I used it last year but didn't get it down until late April. My yard looked great all summer... Nice and bright green. Can you mix both Bermuda and Centipede? was thinking of over seeding now. Thanks for any input...
