    We are getting squalls and gusts now. Our area has been downgraded to tropical storm warning and hopefully we will keep the electric on. I am taking video and will post later.

    We left everything on the counters for easy access. It's getting busy outside. Tonight's menu is spaghetti and meatballs. Tomorrow's is tuna steak tacos which require less energy to prepare. 11.jpg

    I was hearing that too on one of the local station. The local TV station also said that it was "wobbling" and they were not 100% sure of direction. The current track is that it will hit Tampa, then Tallahassee, then Birmingham and then Memphis. If moves more northward, then it will hit Atlanta and then a large chunk of Middle Tennessee (Nashville) and East Tennessee (Chattanooga, Knoxville). This will be very interesting to see where in Tennessee this will hit. When it hits TN, they were saying winds of 40-60 MPH and 3-6 inches of rain early next week.

    We are okay in Jacksonville. Some wind and rain a few hours ago, currently just drizzle. I'm hoping to get through the 1PM - 4PM Jacksonville at Houston NFL game with power intact, otherwise will listen on the radio. We have a place to run to if things get bad. Mother-in-law died last month but her apartment is 1/2 mile away in a retirement apartment building. They may still have power if we lose ours.

    I've come to the conclusion that Zerohedge is based in FL as there have not been many updates. Keep your heads down GIMer's.

    Marco bro checked in. He's @ marriot. I think he is safe there even though it is right on the coast. Says surge Monday is his big concern. I have a hard time believing his or sis's house will be unscathed if not destroyed. Heard reports eye is heading right for them.
    Haven't heard or expect to hear from Naples bro.

    City of Marathon: ‘Everything is under water, I mean everything’
    BY DAVID GOODHUE
      • SEPTEMBER 10, 2017 8:14 AM

    Early Sunday morning, as the eye of the massive Hurricane Irma was about to hit Key West, conditions were dire in the Middle Keys city of Marathon.

    Larry Kahn, editor of the Keynoter and an editor for FlKeysNews.com, reported from one of Monroe County’s four “refuges of last resort” — a shelter set up at Marathon High School on Sombrero Road, that power was out, there was no running water, and everything outside was submerged by storm surge and rain.

    “Everything is underwater, I mean everything,” Kahn said.

    To make matters worse, one of the estimated 50 people staying at the shelter died overnight. Kahn said he was told by a Sheriff’s Office deputy that the man died of natural causes.

    “He was staying in one of the classrooms,” Kahn said. “Police came up, along with a couple of nurses who are here, actually, got everyone out of the room and sealed it off.”

    With everyone’s food running low, a deputy told Kahn that other deputies were going to go into the school’s cafeteria and raid the kitchen to make sure everyone stayed fed.

    “He told me everyone could be in this building for days,” Kahn said. “Everyone here seems to be just walking around in a fog.”

    The National Weather Service in Key West reported regular 80- to 90-mph wind gusts around 8 a.m. The northern eye wall of the storm was just off Key West at 7 a.m., with the eye 15 miles southeast of the Southernmost City.

    Some more charts.

    Marathon, FL. Wind stopped reading overnight (fairly common for these stations to go down in these kind of conditions). Peak measured gust was 71 MPH.
    kmth-wind-day.gif

    Judging by the pressure that peak measurement was probably not the highest wind the area had.
    kmth-pressure2-day.gif

    Last night I added Key West and Naples to the stations to graph.

    Key West station stopped reading wind this morning peaking at 58 MPH sustained with gusts of 81 MPH
    keyw-wind-day.gif

    Naples so far reading 40 MPH sustained with gusts of 60 MPH

    Pressure dropping quickly in Naples

    And boom. Makes landfall in Marco. Be some anxious people waiting to hear from baby bro. Found out from sis, my other brother high tailed it to Bama. Fecker didn't bother letting me know. Here I've been thinking he was sitting in some building in Naples getting pulverized.

    That might be, maybe YouTube caches the live feed then replays it when the live feed ends. I'm really not sure how YouTube works with live feeds.

    I've seen videos/pics of flooding in areas nowhere near South Florida. Also saw a video of the Wakulla river drained almost dry by the "reverse" surge. The Wakulla river is near Tallahassee waaaaay up North...the wind field between the dominant high up North and Irma down South is huge.
