    It's your state of mind and not the state you come from that matters. Dumbasses come from everywhere. They just gravitate towards Florida.

    Yes another thing to worry about.

    Ok, another apocalyptic catastrophe in the making: Costco today looked like Sherman's march through Georgia. No water, no batteries, no gatorade. They put out some Duracell puck lights with 15 AAA cells included, and it looked like Black Friday morning as the display got gutted. Gas line snaking through the parking lot. We went down the street to Publix and picked up stuff, not quite the disaster up the street.

    Up north we called this a French Toast Alert. Announce some sort of natural occurring phenomena and everyone runs out and buys bread, milk and eggs.

    Yep. Hit the local WalMart Neighborhood Market today to pick up some canned/non-perishables and thought "Why not pick up some batteries?". I you want AA, AAA or 9v, you were OK. Same at Lowe's except they had a few C size. Neither had Ds.

    Trick to getting gas you need to wake up at like 3AM, drive around a little, exercise your 2nd amendment if be. No lines, no fuss.

    When I was a young feller back in Virginia working in a grocery store, we'd get cleaned out Every. Single. Time. there was more than an inch of snow in the forecast. I'm talking a handful of times every winter, and people would run to the store and stock up for the apocalypse. And bread, milk and eggs were the first things to sell out. Marlboros probably next on the list. Because Virginia, ya know:bmwrider

    Sumbitch has her turn signal on, but I was hoping it was just a Florida driver thing... buckle up kids. It's gonna get a might breezy here real soon

    Turning a little MOAR to the right.

    Florida may be largely spared at the expense of losing the Bahamas if it turns much more.

    Agreed. The bastard needs to stop shifting west!

    The NHC now has their model mirroring the Euro model. I hope those of you in S. FL have your stuff together.

    Isn't it ironic that the generator I bought at Lowe's this morning is a CAT?

    Well, I'm about as secured as I can get. I learned something new: when a storm comes, you store your pool furniture....in the pool!
