Though of course things can and will change to some extent, it appears more likely at this point that Hurricane Dorian will emerge into the Gulf early next week after crossing the FL peninsula from east to west, and very possibly turn north toward the central Panhandle as a major storm.   Everyone here please be vigilant!

Looking a whole lot better for our area now; presuming nothing major changes we should be out of the woods.   HUGE relief.

We didn't buy any perishables on our grocery run this a.m. and will have to go back to get them, but that's one happy chore!

Spoke with the general manager of the Holiday Inn Resort on the beach this morning and he said not only were they not getting any cancellations, they were getting more reservations.

Just feel really bad for those on the east coast, not only residents but vacationers, and especially businesses (other than grocery stores, gas stations and Home Depot-types plus hardware stores, all of which will prosper -- presuming they don't get damaged themselves).  

Besides being a potential killer at landfall, sounds as if Dorian could be a very slow mover along the peninsula, dumping torrential rain for days.  Very scary.  

Still hoping somehow the storm will stay offshore of Florida, though that doesn't look likely at this point.

Possible very good news for all Floridians – and I say “possible” advisedly – the latest run of the reliable Euro storm track model shows Dorian just skirting the east coast of Florida and on up the U.S. east coast, not making landfall at all except perhaps a glancing blow at Cape Hatteras before heading east out to sea. Yes, it could still make a mess, but beats tracking inland all to heck, I think.

LET’S HOPE IT’S NOT JUST ONE MODEL RUN, BUT A TREND.

Stay tuned.

Clarification: I say it beats making landfall, but of course that depends. If Dorian really does hug the coast just a short way offshore all the way up the coast, it could create more than just a mess. Think hundreds of miles of flooding and evacuations. But again, what I'm hoping is that this is a TREND, and that the track will actually eventually take the storm quite a ways out to sea, never to skirt anything, much less hit.

Time will tell.

Just feeling very, very fortunate nothing will bother us here nor force a dreaded evacuation -- this time.

Talking to myself. lol

Hope the storm misses all y'all. Looks like it may just skirt the other coast... so now all I gotta worry about is an old girlfriend in N.C. Knowing her, she'll go tour the destruction areas on her bike, she has a weird thing for that.

Most definitely not coming anywhere near NW FL, z. Yes, skirting the east coast, and by a goodly distance, it seems. Also, the storm has weakened and there's not a great chance of re-strengthening, all good news for the easterners, except possibly creating more of a "cry wolf" effect for all those who've evacuated -- could hurt next time.
Maybe I'm as weird as your former gf but I don't see anything wrong with biking around to view the damage - not that I've ever been in a position to do that myself (when we get trashed here, the roads are usually sand covered, not easily navigable -- and the bikes might be gone were they not somehow secured way up out of the way of the surge).

Yeah, it's probably okay to do "disaster tourism," but she's crazy about it. As soon as something's wrecked, she's off on her motorcycle to look at it. She went to areas you're not supposed to go after Katrina.
