I would guess that Jim should be showing up soon. The similarity of the estimated track of Ernesto to how Charley went is not comforting. When Charley came through here on the north side of Orlando, we got 90 mph+ winds and lots of roof and tree damage, power out for two days. Not exactly the way that I would want to spend the Labor Day weekend.

But one thing about hurricanes is that you never know exactly how they are going to go. So you just prepare the best you can and see how the dice roll. And keep an eye our for Jim!!!!

You guys are funny. I remember one of the dj's on the morning crew on a Sarasota radio station pointing out that the bad part of the storm is usually NOT where Jim Cantore goes. So, maybe a sighting would not be such a bad thing after all. Hunker down everyone!

I agree that Ernesto is very similar to the track of Charlie.

This is one of the things that I hate about Florida. . . it's not the potential for getting hit by a hurricane, it's all the angst over when one approaches. . .

you're right about all the angst. maybe that explains why more permanent residents are just electing to stay put and ride them out.

I wonder how the residents of Sanibel and Captiva are reacting to Ernesto's approach. think I would probably be prepared to leave there and head for the mainland.

Although the mid-Atlantic is not vulnerable as often as FL. to hurricanes,
I am a lifelong eastcoaster and can assure you, MortonR, that wise preparedness is not at all the same as angst. Our nor'easters are similar except that it's cold as heck and we know that we could be facing a week or two without heat in 30 degree(-) temps. Mere mention of snow and they close the schools, we hit the grocery stores to strip the shelves bare of milk, bread and toilet paper when we know doggone well that we don't even need any, plus even if we did, we have four-wheel drive vehicles the size of tanks that could get us to the store later in the day. It ain't angst, MortonR. It's just a "thang".

No Jim..hopefully, he has no need to come by.
Though, I must say that the weather here is absolutely gorgeous...always is when there are storms around the vecinity. If it were to go into Cuba's S.E. area, where the 'Sierra Maestra is (all tall mountains), it will break it apart a bit. Anyway, one never knows with these things but the good thing is we can see where it's going, so I'll worry about this Ernesto fellow maybe tomorrow.
