Talk about 2017's natural disasters - NO POLITICS PLEASE.

Hey, um, FloridaManChief guy, good timing on moving to Florida.  JUST SAYING.

Yeah... uh, TampaChief?  Holler if you end up heading this way for an evacuation.  I unfortunately do not have the space to put you up, but I can come get slammered with you and the missus.

For the particularly neurotic amongst you (or just those of you in the area), this website is my favorite advanced resource for tracking hurricane paths:

http://www.spaghettimodels.com/

It combines the www.nhc.noaa.gov stuff with other major projections and modeling.  I found both of these images particularly helpful:

And I'm trying to use this to justify my belief that Louisiana and Texas will be relatively okay... big high pressure system moving down from the north:

Wait, so natural disasters aren't the result of politicians I don't like? Weird.

But yeah, Artist formerly known as DC, be smart, be safe. I've never had to deal with anything like a hurricane. Not sure how I'd handle it.

I'd advise drinking heavily.  It's not a quick event.  And once it starts, you either evacuated, or you didn't.

Also right behind it is TS Jose, and there's a big disturbance near Mexico that might coalesce into Katia.

Yaaaay.  I guess we got used to boring quiet hurricane seasons; we are due.

The early forecast for Jose has him fucking off back to sea, though.  So that's good.

Good news for me, I leave Saturday morning for Manila. 

Bad news for my wife and kid is that they're not going to Manila. 

My wife's sister lives in Daytona.  The plan is, if Irma goes up the east coast, her sister is coming here. If it goes up the west coast, my wife, kid, dog and 2 guinea pigs will go to Daytona.

Umm... Not to be "that guy"... but what if it goes up the center of the state?

If it goes up the middle it won't be very strong by the time it gets to Tampa.
