    I just figured we need a place to talk about these instead of mucking up Presidency threads.

    Power is out for 500,000 customers in FL already.

    The citrus belt is under threat too.


    Cuba's entire grid was knocked out by Ian.

    "This is a tough hurricane. One of the wettest we've ever seen from the standpoint of water."-Donald J Tr*mp, 2018 (referring to Hurricane Florence)

    Why can't we have such hard hitting analysis anymore?
    Come on, DeSantis, up your game a bit, if you want to be Tr*mp II, electric boogaloo.

    Mom picked a very prescient time to visit her brother in Pennsylvania. Or rather, she picked the right year. Grandma was prescient on when she gave birth.

    Of course, mom is inland (metro Orlando), so not nearly has effected as those on the coast.

    Might need extra-absorbent paper towels! I hope Biden is prepared to throw some out to DeSantis.

    And don't forget he also wanted to nuke it to stop it. The man was a genius, everyone says so.

    If DeSantis can't wield a Sharpie to show his own forecast, he doesn't deserve to be President.

    As you know, we get that in Chicago sometimes, too. Not so much swimmers as people coming up close to the lake on the big wind days, marvelling at the waves. Then ever so often ... woosh. The wave splashes over the barrier, drags them into the water, and the gawker disappears forever more.

    True, but having been in the worst storms in Chicago and also having been on Florida Gulf coast during a (rather "mild") hurricane, there is no comparison between the two.
    Admittedly, swimming in/gawking at either likely will kill ya', but hurricanes are much nastier.

    A very stable genius, thank you very much.

    My BIL is about 20 miles from the center of the storm, in North Ft. Myers. I don't think the storm surge can get him, but he will definitely find out how good his roof is. I did look to see if I could identify him in that swimming video.

    We had similar for Ida, but it still took a looooong time to get power back. Their infrastructure may not be as decayed as ours, but some rural places could be without power for weeks.
