I'm trying to get out... I mean like in a year or two.

Looks like we're toughing out this one.

I mostly follow the wind speed probabilities. As it stands now, about 55% chance of tropical storm force winds in my area, and 10% chance of hurricane force winds.

Many Florida beaches aren't ready for Hurricane Dorian

Florida’s 825 miles of sandy beaches serve as the first line of defense against hurricanes. But many of the beaches in Hurricane Dorian's crosshairs are still depleted from the last two hurricanes and aren't ready to take the hit.

Beaches in Jupiter, Delray and North Boca Raton in Palm Beach County, near Dorian’s projected landfall, are at risk from storm surge because they haven't been rebuilt since Irma in 2017, said Jackie Keiser, who leads hurricane restoration efforts for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers office in Jacksonville.

Federal money followed hurricanes Irma and Matthew, but $460 million for Florida beach restoration has yet to be spent, partly because half the year is off limits for beach construction during sea turtle nesting season.

On the bright side, they won't have to repair it twice. Procrastination is usually best.

Downright horrible situation some folks are probably in as I type this, and it will continue for some hours, I believe. Seriously not good. My soul seems to be warning me that I'll be reading about deaths from this one Mother Nature has pushed into the lives of some people. Wouldn't it be an absolutely great thing if we could read in about 24 hours that not one human was killed by this horrible storm?

I remember hurricanes in Miami when I was way, way younger. But I am sure I didn't have to go through one as bad as this one is.

I see that map above this post is indicating a turn before the East Coast of the mainland. That will save lives.

But not in the Bahamas, right?
