I was driving home from a music session in Pensacola last night, a trip which entails driving east on Interstate 10 for about ten miles. During that short stretch, I saw three or four convoys of utility trucks traveling westbound with their yellow warning lights flashing.

I was a bit confused at first since they were obviously emergency response teams from points west (Alabama, Mississippi, etc.) sent to help restore power post-Dorian, and Dorian was on the east coast. That meant either they or I was driving in the wrong direction!

Then I deduced that they had probably been pre-positioned outside the storm's anticipated impact zone (like in Tallahassee) and got sent home as unneeded when damage turned out to be less than feared.

Doesn't look like SWFL will be affected but it's moving slowly up the east coast of Florida with the eye around Stuart/Fort Pierce. Let's hope it stays offshore.
Oh, and according to one expert metorologist, President Donald Schlump, the folks in his beloved Alabama better watch out, at least the ones wearing the red ball caps, forget the rest.

Hi all! It’s 86f going up to 92f in Tallahassee. . We are preparing for Dorian whose path is coming in our direction around Labor Day. As many of you know I have been caring for my dad who turns 96 next month. This will be the fourth hurricane in fall in a row for us. The last two were the worst, of course. Dorian is now a category three. The gulf coast around Mexico Beach and inland was devastated last year.

I am weary of hurricanes. I have to keep dad cool and feed him, but he isn’t eating a lot anymore. ..... I started this thread eighteen years ago. We all have concerns about the weather, eh? All is well in my world, though. I play Bessie Smith’s BackwaterBlues on my Radio King parlour guitar and Little Gray Mockingbird by the late Dennis Dunne on autoharp.
Love, harpgirl.

PS I have been trying to arrange a lime jello match with Alison but she’s never on one continent long enough for us to meet up.

33 years ago today we moved from Loughton in Essex to Cornwall (best thing we ever did). Our move was blighted by two days of terrible weather caused by the leftovers of Hurricane Charley, which had formed near Florida the week before. The Cornish removal company, two men and the strongest woman I've ever seen in my life, loaded all our belongings, most of which was going into store, into the van in a blinding rainstorm (thankfully all was well when we finally retrieved our furniture four months later), then camped on the floor of our empty living room overnight, which we hadn't expected. I had to buy them all fish and chips. Charley wreaked havoc in Ireland that week via huge amounts of rainfall.

That was a mistake, Keberoxu, but it's also true that some locals haven't been happy with it for a while.

And certainly doesn't bother me much but, before my 5 year, or so, gap on Mudcat, most here called me WAV.

Some friends and I hope to book a winter weekend in the motel after the roof that the tornado blew off is fixed or in a room that wasn't affected. News reports say that parts of it are still in use. However, construction noise can be a problem, too, for people who stay in the rooms where the roof is intact.
Our motivation for staying there is not to be at the scene of the disaster but to help the business which is family-owned, not part of a chain. This has to be hard on the finances, occurring during the high tourism season on the Cape. The owner said the roof was only about a year old. It's probably insured but there may be a deductible and loss of business may not be included.

potential for astronomical sums of damages.

Steve, it helped me to remember that the difference between Celsius degrees is greater than the difference between Fahrenheit degrees, so I entered those two temperatures into a converter. Of course I have no idea what the humidity was, either! However, when my home's indoor temp reaches 85F I am uncomfortable!

Stay hydrated!

All around us afternoons storms and rain... and the weather report keeps saying "lots of rain possible", but it is amazing how much of it keeps going north or south of us.
Sure, we get rain.. occasionally a lot of it. But there seems to be a 'zone' just north of Wash DC that dodges a large % of serious weather...

Now watch... I will have jinxed us by saying that....
