    I’m not sure which one is more horrifying? Maybe knight because you might sleep through some of it?

    I’d be legit freaked out having to listen to that wind howling all night, I’d take a daytime landfall every time

    Night landfalls suck. when the power goes out and you’re sitting in a dark and silent house and all you hear is the drone of the radio weather guy and the whistle of the wind going through the seams of the house. It sucks

    Exactly, the hell with that - only thing that would freak me out more is a tornado hitting at night since you can’t see the damn thing

    unless you were dumb enough to stay in a flood zone, what's the point of listening to the radio? The storm will pass when it passes. You are at its mercy by this point. Light some candles, crack open a beer, and play some board games with the family.

    I feel terrible for the people who were affected by Sally, but fuck I feel like we had about 10 days or so heads up and people just left their fucking boats in dock, stayed in flood zones, etc. I know covid throws a wrench in some options but it doesn’t feel like most people took any precautions.

    Baldwin County definitely wasn't as prepared for it as we should have been. But part of that is because it went from Mississippi landfall, to mobile, to Baldwin/Escambia over the course of about 28 hours, and by the time it was certain, we were in non-stop rain. We got more damage from this than Ivan, way way more. Very weird storm.

    My in laws were affected pretty badly, but to be honest I don’t think I would have left if I were them. Sally changed a lot really quickly. Cat 1 then (as predicted at the time) got to pretty much Cat 3, and by the time that occurred the flooding had already started happening. No one knew exactly where it was going to go, plus it sitting. As Tiffin said, really weird storm.

    Just got a boil water notice from the city of Fairhope. So that's a good sign. Left to bug out to Arkansas for a few days, seeming more and more like it could be a week or so.

    Well I certainly didn't expect the first Greek storm to affect Portugal and Spain. When was the last tropical storm to hit Europe?

    Europe getting impacted by Subtropical Storms and Post-Tropical Storms is more common than you'd expect. Once the storms get into Europe, the NHC hands the forecasting duties over to European weather services, so the NHC tracks often stop just before a European impact occurs. But a Post-Tropical Lorenzo last year hit Ireland and the UK, Post-Tropical Leslie impacted Portugal/Spain in 2018, Ophelia impacted Ireland/UK in 2017, etc.
