i'm sincerely wishing the best for our Paceline pals down in the path of Irma.

Stay safe folks, do what you know is the best thing for you and your families.

Sometimes it's hard to get it to the forefront of our consciousness, but we all know bikes and heirlooms and stuff are all second tier priorities compared to the safety and health of souls.

be safe, check in here when you can.

You people bugging out are smart. Unless they get the track wrong, there will be a long period after it passes where there will be a low quality of life. No good water, electricity, gasoline, services etc. Get out and wait it out a while before coming back.

Heading back to Jax next Thursday for long weekend. Outdoor wedding. Probably doing some cleanup.

Then Cuba at the end of the month. Hoping Havana and environs are spared the worst.

Hunker down, Florida. (Yes, I know that is a Georgia thing.) Hoping for the best for all of you!

I love astronomy, it's a real passion of mine. Upper atmosphere winds, especially the jet stream, have a huge role in seeing night sky objects.

This site is great for visualizing winds: https://earth.nullschool.net/#curren....60,21.00,3000

Hopefully people will also spare a thought for the people who've already suffered in the Carribean and who are less well-equipped to deal with the aftermath. Stay safe everyone, wherever you are.

My neighbor said his mother just lost her house in Oregon due to wildfire.

Disaster everywhere.

Windy.com is another great sight for wind and other meteo visualizations.

Currently sitting on a plane at Tampa International Airport. I thought I was lucky in that I already had plans to fly out this morning long before Irma. We prepared just in case, now the plane is broken and we are sitting at the gate. Still hoping to get out but at a certain point I hope they say this plane isn't going and I can get off and get home in time to settle in for an intense few days. Last place I want to be is sitting on a plane on the tarmac that sits at an elevation of about 6 feet and at the very edge of the water. Fingers and everything else crossed at this point!

That's the same my father found, he's in Naples. He checked around for a more secure shelter, but everything is full. He's sitting tight where he is. I hope everyone we all know remains in the safest place possible for tonight, and especially tomorrow. The Weatherbug app has a good real-time view of the storm.

We still here in Tampa are ready. The high school parking lot 5 blocks away is a staging area full of city work trucks, garbage trucks, bucket trucks and heavy equipment, the house and goods are secured in a low flood risk location. Bunches of ice reinforcing two chest freezers now with lots of pre-cooked, no-cook and easy-cook foods. Two propane tanks for the grill and camp stove, percolator coffee pot on standby. There are two alternative locations with family and friends we can get to if this really gets ugly. At worst, we are camping in doors next week.

Prayers to those less well situated.

Ronsonic,
I'm in the New Tampa area. The waiting is the sucky part. How much CNN, NBC etc. can anyone watch. I've also got ice, propane and and and...good luck tonight and tomorrow to you and others in the area.

Mike
