    Hoping Irma weakens as it comes up Florida. I feel partly nervous about it all. Especially for those in south Florida.

    Is it too good to be true that Irma is down to cat 3 and 125 mph winds?

    I really hope everyone has gotten the hell out of dodge. There's a cam in Key West up on YouTube. It's already getting really ugly there.

    Southwest Florida is gonna get brutalized.

    Hope everyone on the board is out of harm's way.

      Huh? They aren't supposed to get tropical storm force winds in St. Augustine until maybe 3 or 4 pm at the earliest.

      We have minor league bad weather today with the major league badveather coming. I hope to be home by tuesday but thats dubiious at this point. The hotel staff skeleton crew is doing amazing. So few workers have so much to deal with.

      First of all, the eye is now definitely over land so the power of the storm will be depleted fairly rapidly. Also, while there is a lot of precipitation north of the storm, there is much less south so things should change for the better overnight. Tornadoes are a common byproduct of hurricanes so I wouldn't worry too much about a tornado warming.

        On a day of awesome 9-11 memorials it is sad to see the looting and scamming of others.
