After the latest Euro, this post was a bit prophetic.

nah, its just the same narrative from NE weenies every storm. they hope it comes up the coast. a run or two will give them hope, they post like crazy only for it to not hit them come game time.

Why are all the tropical threads the worst?

tracking hurricanes in real time is dumb until they are like 48 from landfall and by then everyone's really awful to deal with.

Totally agree

D7+ snowstorms >>>>>>infinity D7+ hurricanes 

They are equal to me. Reason why is both give me 34 and rain. By the time a hurricane gets this far north it becomes cold core and makes its own cold air to drop temps.

Main thread, as, lamentably, so often, being soured by pompous and ignorant dorks who cite their decades long experience at "tracking" as irrevocable proof that a slow moving Dorian will upwell enough water in its approach to Florida so that it will hit as at best a weak CAT 1. Never mind the best in the world in Miami, with the best tools available, now forecasting a CAT 4 landfall. But, you see, they don't have the snowflake special insight of grizzled veterans of "tracking" using NOAA weather radio and lat/long map plots back in 1979 when they were analyzing David with their state-of-the-art dart throwing. Put the blindfold on, pin the tail on Dorian, like they did with David. And Frederic. And etc.     

Not to knock David. It was a hell of a storm for the mid-Atlantic. One of my earliest weather memories, growing up in northern DE.

My parents live in FL. They decided to pack up and head North to my sisters in Atlanta. While they live on the West coast this storm is being so different that for all we know it could cross the entire state and re-form over the Gulf. They did not want to wait for a mandatory evacuation and get caught in traffic.

Man.. all that hype in Florida for a fish storm. I bet they are breathing easier. 

Unfortunately, that’s the way it is sometimes. Could still be a lot of impact based on how close it is. We’ll see if the threat is really shifting north or if this end up being a clean EC miss.

The process of buying a car sucks.

But it sucks even more when you try to do it with two young kids in tow.

Storms like this make me worry about hype fatigue.  So much is made of these and getting people to stock up and prepare only for it to miss. People might not take heed next time and then we see worse things when it does hit a populated location

Broke down and put the AC back on. Wanted to be done with it but it was hot in the house last night and didn’t cool off much this morning.

Yikes, Maryland is beating Howard 79-0 with 13 minutes left in the 4th.

It was 56-0 at halftime.

Barely anyone in the stands.

Wait, people already turned their AC off? I keep mine at home on until lows consistently get into the 50s and highs are in the 70s...so late September-ish.

 

We like to sleep with it at 67-68 at night...hate to sweat while sleeping.
