What the fuck am I still doing in this state?!
No State income tax?
I'm remembering this in four months time when my grandparents are working "do you have snow? It's 70 degrees outside here" into phone/IM conversations.
The five-day forecast (which is obviously less accurate) has Jeanne going up the east coast right after that last dot on the map above.
It should be at my house in St. Augustine on Monday morning....
Say what you will, living in Connecticut has it's perks...
I'm flying to Tampa on Sunday.
How bad does this suck when I will be dreaming of CT weather while I am in Florida.
If it goes according to plan Tampa should feel very little if any. It will be on the West side of the storm which is the weaker side.
Rob, I couldn't find that predictive map on the NOAA site. Could you provide a pointer?
That's right, folks. Start moving out. Papa wants a bigger place, and he ain't paying the current hyper-inflated rates for it!
So, which evil genius with a weather control machine do you work for, John? And does his plan take stopping James Bond's last minute assault into consideration?
James, thanks. But could you give me the link/location on the main page (in case they don't update that exact .gif.)
And Todd, you seem pretty cavalier. Since you're in Orlando, and that's where I'm headed on Sat. Do you expect this to not be much of a vacation swinger? Or do I cancel everything?
Rob's map in the first post should update with the latest NHC preduction image everytime the page reloads.
Al, it may be taken out of your hands. You may want to check with your airlines/hotel to see if they're still on-schedule or honoring reservations (do the hotels cancel in-coming tourist reservations to accomodate local evacuees?).
Swingers convention in Orlando?
A direct hit in Orlando may cause problems, mainly with power. HOWEVER, the parks (Disney, Universal, etc) were all open a day after both Charley and Frances passed through. AFAIK, none of the resorts (again, meaning WDW/Universal) were canceling reservations to accomodate evacuees. In fact, this time of year is a very-lightly booked time- even moreso this year, due to all the storms. We were at Magic Kingdom last weekend (I have small kids- we're there 2x/month), and it was deserted. It was a bit eerie, actually, but hey- we got on everything we wanted to.
While I might seem flippant, I'm not. I have plans and backup plans in place for just about everything I can think of regarding hurricanes, so beyond that, there's nothing left to do except enjoy the weather. Relatively speaking, this is currently a small hurricane, with hurricane force winds only out about 30 miles from center, so I'm not terribly concerned as of now.
They may close the airport late Saturday/early Sunday, depending on how the track of Jeanne actually pans out. If it rolls through on Sunday, we'll have real nice weather on Monday, and following. I say "come on down."
I agree with Todd. If this thing scoots the coast then pretty much anything 30-40 miles East of the ocean will be fine. I'm only 9 miles from the coast though...
Thanks for the updates everyone. I guess I hold the plan - but just a little nervous ... !
Al...how far are you from Hershey? My sister sent me pics from Ivan and the park was pretty flooded. She lives in Harrisburg.
Newest track has it coming further inland.
