My part of Georgia will get some rain probably. But not much more. I'm four hours from the nearest coast.

Stay safe Flow Riddians!

Checking on how it will affect Puerto Rico since that's where my 20 yr old daughter is right now. But she's staying in an all-concrete building.

Sparks. All of NC is in a state of emergency. It kind of scares me because years ago Hugo hit and devastated the city, and it wasn't supposed to go inland. Please keep us updated on your situation.

I've been the bug out destination for a high school buddy and his family who live in Savannah for years. They've only used me once.

He hasn't called or texted. If he doesn't soon, I'll get in touch with him. I'm sure he's keeping a closer eye on it than I am.

Yep. Savannah is a fun, beautiful town bugzilla

The news says different crap ..every time i see them mention something.



They say this thing has the destruction power of 300 tornadoes , spinning altogether at once.

They are also stating its 400 miles wide.


..and will hit Florida central area then travel north directly through Ga , straight up its center and then turning east after hitting TN. & N.Carolina.


Thats a lot of wind.

News also claims ...every city hotel along I-75 , from Valdalsta ..reaching up into Central GA.'s City of Warner Robins ...are all currently filled up by Florida evacuee's.

They say travel is already becoming more difficult as more evacuee's are still arriving.

If anyone has ever been through a major hurricane, as I have, they know how devastating it can be. There is really no telling where they may hit. Irma is a real b*tch, like Hugo was.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I'm not so sure of that Sparky. Not that freezing cold is fun or snow up to your butt in one storm and -40 at night with colder wind chills, but there's no damage, usually no deaths.

no but got woods behind me and a house on each side to break force of the wind,,im in the back off the park with private yards,,

im sure its going to be strong,but have everything i need,candles,water,can goods,grill is filled,plenty of dog food,,ill fill tubs ,and everything is in shed or back porch..

if roof comes off i got a good roofer
some of these people leave all their stuff outside
last storm a few of us got together
and went house to house helping others bring lawn stuff in

theres been 25 percent more people moved to florida last 2 years
so alot are not used to these storms

ive had houses down here since 05

and my parents since the 80s..

all you can do is prepare for the worst and pray for the best..

I know the drill. Was without power for ten days when Hugo hit, even though weather reports said no way would it hit this far inland. Weather reports do not know exactly what will happen. I just hope everyone in the states that Can be effected will prepare.

What'd they do, Sparky? I heard both teams had a bye week at the same time so they were thinking of playing it then or will they compromise with a neutral site?

Linda, be sure to tape all your Window, move all your Stuff from the Windows , Be sure to keep all your Importen Papers with you don't forget your Insurance Policy . Looks like we all have to pray and hope for the Best. I'm so close to SAV, Charleston , Jacksonville I'm sure we 'll get some of the Heavy Winds and Rain.

Fla. homes are typically built by putting in footers, then laying a block foundation and the rough plumbing is laid in, then then they fill all that in with hard packed sand, then pour concrete over it.

Then proceed up with block walls....and go from there.

So...unlike a home built with wood on a foundation of block like in most places....there is no way water can get in thru the gaps between the block and wood, because there isn't any gaps....because its a continuation of block and no wood resting on a foundation.

The only way flooding water can get in is thru the gaps in the doors and windows....and garage door.

So, if these gaps were Caulked in real good....in theory, no way water can get in.


I'd do that...Vs...sand bagging....and a lot less work too.

Then get in my car and leave the state.

Irma isn't going to mess stuff up like the other hurricanes. she's going completely wipe out everything in her path. period.
I hope people are taking her very serious.

I've been living in Oregon for many years but I'm from Florida. grew up in hurricane alley. the last hurricane I was in was hurricane opel. she was a bad ass. irma makes opel look like chump change. if you live in Florida don't wait for them to ask you to leave. I imagine the traffic northbound are already a mess. the people on the panhandle have less distance to travel to leave. the people below the panhandle don't.
