going to do my lawn/give dogs a trim/clean the house tmw .. normal stuff.

then might help my dad on sunday (he said he's done with everything but i doubt it, so will probably go over there).

if the eye comes here, i might go south (dad's or aunts). usually u dont go south to avoid a hurricane.. could be a bad idea. so staying put might be the best idea. this house is strong and has cat5 hurricane windows. they feel like bulletproof glass. just kinda odd & potentially risky riding out a cat4 in a new environment.

it's kinda looking like the eye will hit 25-50 miles north of me, so that'd be great for me. direct hit would suck. the biggest problem with these things is usually the (potentially weeks of) power outages, boiling water, and driving is dangerous (all traffic lights out, trees down, lines down, and people being impatient).

watching the hurricane through protective windows would be kind of refreshing tho.

woord.

all of the projections are now saying it won't hit FL ... but i'm not going to believe it until i see it.

they think it'll turn north soon. hope so.

it's back to coming closer to hitting us:

A hurricane watch was issued from Boca Raton through Brevard County late Sunday morning, after the storm reached Category 5 force and its projected path took a slight bend toward Florida.

The storm’s potential paths moved closer to Florida Sunday, showing a large slice of South Florida within the outer limits of regions at risk of a direct hit.

it was a predicted ~100 miles off coast b4

"The National Hurricane Center forecasts Dorian to be 40 to 50 miles off the Florida coast on Tuesday and Wednesday, with hurricane-force wind speeds extending about 35 miles to the west."

"And making matters more touch-and-go is that with every new forecast, "we keep nudging (Dorian's track) a little bit to the left," which is closer to the Florida coast, he said."

“This is unprecedented,” said Jeff Masters, meteorology director at Weather Underground who used to fly into hurricanes. “We’ve never had a Category 5 stall for so long in the Atlantic hurricane record.”

this thing is nuts.

But forecasters warned that Dorian’s exact track remained uncertain: Just a slight deviation to the left of the current forecast and it could make landfall on Florida’s east coast.

A hurricane warning is in effect for Grand Bahama and Abaco Islands in the northwestern Bahamas and a 250-mile portion of the central Florida coast. A hurricane watch is also in place for a nearly 300-mile stretch from Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., up to South Carolina’s South Santee River.

“A slight wobble West would bring this Cat 5 storm on shore with devastating consequences,” U.S. Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) said Monday on Twitter, noting that the core of Dorian was expected to come within 20 to 30 miles of Cape Canaveral. “If you’re in an evacuation zone, get out NOW.”

(fuck rick scott)
