    Now its off of Daytona Beach, still picking up speed - up to 8MPH now. Never really heard any wind here even after I went to sleep at about 1:30, even though we're still only slightly below peak wind even now at 30MPH - it was supposed to drop of quicker.

    You know what caused this?  I just shipped a gun back to PSA in NC.  It’s gonna hit there.

    9:15 am, well past us, no real high winds, no flooding, no damage, just some small branches down, now all we have to worry about is grandkids on the outer banks in N.C.

    Glad to be hearing from all the folks it has passed.

    Hopefully it'll continue to follow the coast until it turns back out to the mid-atlantic and never make a landfall

    Here is a view of the outer rain bands approaching, taken from behind my house. We are 65 miles from the ocean.
    Those rain bands have been coming over my house all day.
    I went out at 8AM for the newspaper and under a clear blue sky, saw the rain bands approaching, and thought it would be an interesting photo.

    Hope that danged old heathen heifer takes a hard starboard turn and burns out in the middle of the Atlantic. Jawja and the Carolinas don't need that mess crashing into them. All y'all stay safe and hope it misses y'all!

    Wife talked to niece and they had wind to about 30mph and rain. No problems at her house.

    Hopefully it will stay far enough out to sea as to not have any significant impact.

    Don't you have gated security at your place?  Just don't buzz Dorian in or give him the pass code.

    Easy peasy...

    Last projected path shows it SLIGHTLY headed east.  Maybe it'll be a glancing blow.

    GunNut, hope you and that crazy Marine, Nutty Ned, and anyone else in the path don't get anything wind wise and that the rain isn't a flooding event. Heard Norfolk, VA is in for some heavy rains, so Vic and Larry are in that zone of way too much rainwater runoff. Now if that old heifer just HAS to come ashore, I recommend it squat over the Capitol Building. :D

    Neduardo should be pretty good.  Looks like the rain bands are dumping all they have pretty close to the shore.  That's great because the folks inland usually take a beating with the flooding so it's a great thing this thing is just skirting the shore instead of shooting inland.  We've had some interesting "bands" go through and some small local tornadoes but nothing of significance.

    All is well in the home front.  Winds were a little nasty last night but all that means is weekend cleanup.  No damage anywhere I cam see and the only PIA is having to lug the freaking patio furniture outside again.  Lost power overnight but the refrigerator/freezer(s) kept cold all night so all is good.

    I'm beginning to feel like they are chasing me.  3 in the last 4 years and two in FL before that.  This is really starting to suck...

    Having lived through Hurricane Andrew while working for the electric company and living in the 100% claims area, I can tell you the areas of the Bahamas that got it the worst just need to be emptied, dozed and rebuilt if they want to do this.  There are 50,000 people that need housing, electricity and food.  As for the USA, just like Hurricane Matthew, I consider it prayers answered.  Glad everyone is OK.

    Well, T+ a week. That was uneventful and dumb.  But it was safe and we were fortunate.  I tended to a hurricane shelter for three days.  My paycheck will make me grin, so I won't complain. Ha.
