Some of the newest model tracts are leaning towards a south florida hit or close. Time to prepare just in case. Hopefully it changes.

I was supposed to leave NJ on Wednesday to head back to Cape Coral, delaying that for a few days until more is known where the hell Irma is going.

We've made our evacuation plans already, figuring that if we do so we won't need them. I feel some relief having done so, but still feel creepy at the potential devastation that may come our way.

That's just me, along with the creepy feeling is the hope it won't be as bad as it could be. But I'm a hurricane Andrew survivor, having had our house in Miami destroyed and witnessing the aftermath there, and I feel as though PTSD for me could be right around the corner.

That is a good idea.

Good heavens! Kyjake is right! The latest wunderground models have it heading for SWFL.

I really thought it was going to veer out into the Atlantic but it no longer looks that way.

It's so unusual to get two bad hurricane hits close together (I mean TX then FL if this happens).
From latest wunderground:

"Tropical storm-force winds are expected to begin affecting the east coast of Florida and the Florida Keys on Friday night (Figure 1 below). An evacuation decision for the Florida Keys may have to come as early as Tuesday, since the Keys require 3+ days to evacuate."
