my next-door neighbor is named Florence, so we are having fun with Florence (so far).
All of those will be wrong!
Nc wil take one for the team.
A high pressure system moves into PA and pushes her south into DC? Since Trump is not draining the swamp maybe Flo can blow in and flood it ...
Global Warming / Climate Change hysteria will soon follow now that it has reached CAT 4.
I'm off to get all the milk and bread I can fit in the truck.
For those interested in past storms for a particular location. Go to this link, put your location in, and select a distance from your location and hit the search magnifier. It will pull all the past storm tracks and display on the chart to the right. https://www.coast.noaa.gov/hurricanes/ hold your cursor over a track and it will highlight the storm on the bottom left table.
Trump's fault, he made it
Gas prices will go up.
Hate to tell you but that only works for Snow !! LOL
Nothing will happen. They will forecast a direct hit by a Cat 5 storm, people will panic, I can't buy milk, bread, bottled water, and gas will be $3.75/gallon. And nothing will happen.
Great, so now it gonna snow. It's Hurricane Sandy all over again.
Don’t forget chainsaws and generators.
With respect to the forecasts, all models are wrong but some are useful as a friend of mine likes to say.
Plywood to board up those windows.LOL
History does repeat itself.....
We'll see. I am comfortable in my bold predictions. And the Browns will win at least 6 games.
What are the Browns???
Cleveland (Ohio) Browns. Football team. Art Model of the Ravens tried to move them to Baltimore. There was a major court case and the city won the right to keep the team name. Model took the team and renamed it and a new team was formed. This was back in the late 90s. I can only recall them going to, and losing, the Super Bowl once in my lifetime.
I've never understood that either. If you live in hurricane prone areas, why not build your house with real storm shutters to begin with?
Down in FL they have to build houses to sustain a class 3 hurricane. So my question is why you wouldn't build a house in a hurricane prone area with those specs, aka in the outer banks.
They still don't put real shutters on them in FL. You see all the home improvement stores sell out of plywood everytime a storm comes.
My other question is why do we as taxpayers have to subsidise beach front homeowners with national flood insurance?
For the place we had at the beach we prefitted 3/4” plywood numbered for each window (even treated them with deck waterproofing stain) and numbered them then pre-installed hanger bolts in the studs under the framing surrounding the windows. After that onetime prep work it only took about 30 minutes to install all the plywood ... and about the same to take down. All it took was 2 people and a cordless drill with a socket. Within a couple storms over half the people on our street had done the same.
I went and got two kegs of beer.
One box of ammo per mug.
The price of everything will go up.
There will be a run on (in order): Milk, Bread, Gas, Generators.
The Gov will call a SoE before the storm hits.
All .gov entities will close.
The storm won't hit.
We have a buyers market on generators...
One down already.
That is easy. Just follow the money. To DC.
In addition to all the goings on of the government and panickin’ public, everyone might get a dry run in on their preps.
Some will be eatin’ Bread and drinkin’ spoiled milk.
Some will be eating like kings.
Which one will you be?
Well ... latest modeling show NC in her path but she’s still about a week out so it still toooo early to panic but maybe a few non-perishables like bottled water, fresh batteries, top of tanks in the vehicles and other stuff that won’t go to waste for the rest of hurricane season and into winter.
They did say "Wilmington, NC....a hurricane will do what a hurricane will do. It's too early to predict right now" on the weather channel tonight.
However, Wilmington was in the middle of their model.
Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
That just shows me that Africa has it out for eastern North America!
It’s part of their invasion plan.
Soften us up with the long range "artillery". It is kinda crazy that ALL of the hurricanes that effect the east coast and gulf originate in that one little patch of water.
Climate is fascinating, it all starts actually over the Sahara with heat and high pressure systems which pick up warm water as a move into the Atlantic. And of course El Nino exacerbates it. I read somewhere ones were a 5 millibar drop in pressure in Egypt has the potential to spawn a category 5 hurricane that hits Texas.
I do too. I've heard that called the butterfly effect... The beating of a butterflies wings being able to spawn a hurricane. And the big silver lining I see is that all the rain fills our reservoirs . Truly amazing.
I'm in the King department
, I dont need milk and I can make seriously awesome bread in my fireplace... If I want.
Go home TABS ... Ur drunk.
So it's not all bad news.
