    I don’t know anything about hurricanes and I don’t pretend to but it always seems like when they get a chance to strengthen in the gulf they always explode. Just like Michael.

    I guess I don’t understand the premise that Cuba slows them down when they’re going to have ample time to regenerate over the gulf.

    NW Florida technically does but they're as built up as the mainland now if they're not owned by the Air Force

    Cuba has mountains. Mountains=death for hurricanes. The right path over Cuba can completely tear a storm apart to the point it can’t reform.

    To add to this, Cuba and Hispaniola are often times more effective at shredding more well developed system than they are disrupting systems that are more disorganized. Laura went over the more mountainous extent of Hispaniola, for example, but it didn't really have much of an impact on Laura's strength since it was still fairly disorganized at that point.

    40ish feet. I wouldn’t be worried about storm surge or flooding but watch those 140+ mph winds crush everything. it was just a weird realization I had

    All we use the generator for is to power a large fan and a small refrigerator that we use for drinks. A fan and a cold drink is a godsend when you’ve been without power for a few days

    There is not a single greater luxury item than a whole house natural gas generator. We moved into a house with one. Power goes out count to ten and then the power comes back on. When we moved in we wondered why every house on our street had one. After the power went out 4 times that first year and we always seemed to be the last street to get it back we figured out why.

    When I move into our forever home I am getting one.

    We may get to the Greek alphabet by the start of October at this rate:



    I wouldn't expect a US impact from either Paulette or Rene. Rene could end up with a long lasting and bizarre looking track, but should largely remain in the central Atlantic. Paulette looks like more of a Bermuda threat than a US threat, but stranger things have happened.

    We will probably get Sally right behind Rene as well off of Africa. If there is an eventual US impact of the three, I'd give future Sally the best odds, but given that it is still over Africa, there is a ton of uncertainty at this point.

    The bottom floor of my in-laws' house in Orange Beach flooded sometime early this afternoon (it’s on the water), the water is only going to get higher tonight, and my FIL refuses to promise his daughter that he’ll stop going outside tonight to save property from Floating away. He had knee surgery 3 weeks ago. Tight, tonight will be fun

    That's a 30mph intensification in a few hours.

    Track has also changed to a hook once it gets on land. Birmingham might dodge the bullet.

    Radio silence from 10pm until 5:20am when the MIL texted saying they’re fine.
    Managed to get 2 hours, good call


    Mom is in Fairhope right now and said things have been quite intense and loud for the past hour or so.

    Fairhope got slammed. Lost a handful of shingles, not as bad as a lot of neighbors. 3 or 4 sections of fence down. 40+ ft magnolia tree down, all sorts of other debris and a tree that will have to be cut down. Water got up to the back steps because there's a drainage ditch that runs behind the house from a retention pond and another ditch that merge behind the house.

    Went on a drive after we finally got through the eye wall. All sorts of trees down, power out randomly, one road out of the neighborhood is where all the water drains from behind the house, totally flooded across the road.

    Shit hit us at 3-330, and then the eye rolled around us, so we stayed in the wall rather than getting any relief by being in the middle of the eye.

    Didn't put up shutters because of how the storm shifted and the rain after the path changed. Got really lucky, really. But gonna have a several days of clean up.

    Pictures I'm receiving from family in Baldwin County are pretty damn bad. Not total-destruction-buildings-swept-off-their-foundation bad, but lots of damage. Mom is currently alone without power, water, and cell service, for example.
