  2. I did not expect my intentionally open ended statement was going to light such a spirited debated on the board lol.

  4. True, but at that point in the game people should have been ready to receive those orders and leave. People shouldn't be waiting for a mandatory evac order and then go "welp I guess I should pack!" It was known that Ian was coming for a week. There's a reason why particularly Florida NWS have Plan, Prepare, Act in their watches and warnings and those were issued earlier than local mandatory evac orders.
  5. One: Ratings and Two: People don't react to colors on a screen, they react to actual conditions. James Spann is of this train of thought, people don't react to radar.
  6. As car-centric the country is, at bare minimum if you're tight, I'm sure you could evac slightly inland to a parking garage to get height. Sure it'd be really terrifying to be in a car with the winds but the water will kill you faster in your home rather than being 3-5 stories up in a parking garage in land. And yes, there are always some that physically can't evac (e.g. the elderly) but those that make the conscious decision to not leave but have the means to because "X storm wasn't so bad, so this one won't be either" or "the forecasters were wrong about X storm in my backyard that one time, so they're going to be wrong this time" I have very little empathy for.
  7. And it will be so frustrating to hear "well you didn't warn us hard enough!" when they barely escape with their lives.
  8. I want the option where we get finally get our cake, only to find out it's carrot cake.
  9. Winds ripping, getting power flickers in downtown silver spring.

  11. Looking more and more like the HRRR is going to win out.
