Im a "history and percentage guy" based on history we get a impact here every 8-10 years, its been 12 years since Katrina, so I am a little uneasy at the moment....we are way over due

Don't they say the "I" storms are usually bad news? Ivan, Ike... etc. She looks like being big trouble for a lot of people.

And the wave train's just rolled out another one of off Africa behind her.

It's a Cat 4 but early models showing her turn out too sea. Nothing to see here.

Checking in from Barbados...


Not getting the warm and fuzzy about this one, plane tickets North are not out of the question over the weekend.

I could use some coors lights anyways.

Hurricane Irma: What we know and don't know about brewing storm ...
http://www.nola.com/hurricane/index....what_to_e.html

Irma follows Hurricane Harvey
If American forecast models hold true, Irma might head north of the Bahamas and make for the coast of North Carolina.

I have been saying we are way overdue for a bad one in North Carolina. I hope this isn't it, but we are due. Batten down the hatches and hope for the best.

Would like to see the European models. 10 days away they're just sticking a push pin on a map blind folded.

It's named after my wife. If it's similar to my wife, this storm will be no problem at all.
