Hurricane Flo Banter Thread-no fun allowed, no saying the storm isn’t that bad plz

Recommended Posts

On one hand, I agree, and in this case since the storm was approaching east to west moreso, you have a better idea where it is going.

 

however, what do you do in an Irma situation where a difference of 200 miles in where it makes the turn can be the difference between a landfall in the Carolinas and going into the gulf?

i would suggest to lighten up.  this began as a valid comparison, simply to highlight the potential impact from Florence despite the weakening trend.  then there was an effort to clampdown on the sandy comparisons, and we see what good that did.  this is a banter thread, after all, and the comparison was always about Florence.

now we are just having a good time at the expense of those who were initially sensitive about the comparison.  the initial intent was to highlight the continued danger of florence.  :)

and you just fell for his bait. :)

I completely agree with this.  Virginia was never really in the cross-hairs.  Completely unnecessary to evacuate them.  

For the politicians it was C.Y.A., with, of course, the best intentions.

Lets have more out of state people tell local authorities how they should do things.  Really want to hear what a guy from WI thinks of this now.

IMHO it's better to risk having traffic jams two days before a category 4 makes landfall in VA beach, than to have people disregard evacuations next time around.

Yeah, because a rushed evacuation in New Orleans worked out so well....

any chance people could stop calling florence, "she"? 

IT is a storm. not a person.

Can't make up its mind where to go. Went off on a course no storm has ever gone before. One day a cat 4 temper the next a cat 2.  Just going to sit there pouring tears until it floods the place. The damn thing IS female.

yeah that's not sexist or anything at all. good work burns.

Atlantic Beach, NC looks like they might lose the pier, it is wobbling severely already, with the wave crashes almost up to the level of the deck

Is it original? If yes, actually positive.

modern piers are built to last.

 The way they have crammed houses onto that beach front they are going to lose a lot more than their pier.

Bold move cotton. Woman says she doesn’t like it and you tell her to grow up. 

Whats funny is that in this very same banter thread you got super butthurt over my words about you and banned me. 

Youre a joke.
