My daughter in law just flew down to Florida and is on her way to Key
West,if not already there, with girl friends.
My brother and his wife's cruise to the Caribbean to have left Monday
from Baltimore was cancelled.
Friend in Myrtle Beach is bracing for the deluge expected there.
Current forecast calls for just rain at worst in KW. They don't even
have tropical storm warnings up further south than Marathon. They aren't
closing any the bridges, so she should be okay. Could be interesting
trying to get back out, but there are worse places to the stranded than KW.
Yeah, as long as nothing changes drastically...altho a major westward
swing would be pretty unusual.
I think the projected track thru the early weekend _most_
interesting--essentially a U turn and possibly, if one were to project
even further out than the last map I saw, back into warm-enough waters
to regenerate and come back around for another swipe... That'd be
pretty remarkable; don't know if it's ever happened since have recorded
observations or not.
Meanwhile, I guess we didn't lose CA Tuesday... :)

I was looking at air traffic in the FL area on Flightaware. Surprising
amount of traffic, eg Orlando has planes coming and going, right now.
South of there, traffic is staying over the west side of FL. I saw
one crazy bastard heading straight into the eye. Clicked on it and it's
a P3-Orion, one of NOAAs hurricane hunters. Shows it's path has been
zigzagging back and forth across it. I wouldn't be good for that job.
I'm in the middle of the U.S. It affects us a bit even here.
Power line crews from Lincoln, NE are headed that way to
help after the storm passes. It's about 1400 miles to Orlando, FL.
I wonder if Walmart will be better prepared for the storm than FEMA,
the Federal Emergency Management Agency. (silly question)
