Hurricane Florence

Wifey B: Well, here we are in MD and NC was ahead and Bermuda. But....

Florence is a ...... well, I'll behave and no name calling here. Hope those of you in NC, SC and VA are starting to follow Florence.

For our part, we're headed south. Plan is to get back to hurricane safe Florida, well at least Florence safe, by Saturday. We'll decide how far and how long as things develop. After Florence passes, we'll decide whether to turn around and head back up and to Bermuda.

Florence might just take a path out to sea or might run parallel to the coast or maybe direct. Who knows. Still about 6 days away.

Actually we're in Cape May just now, heading to Lewes tomorrow...

Don't know if you're in the Chesapeake or Ocean City, but it's been just plain hot and humid here the last week or so. Feels like SW FL with afternoon thunderstorms most days. When you go, take this heat South with you.

Wifey B: Current forecast has it just south of Bermuda on Tuesday as a CAT 3, but then it either comes west with a direct hit or turns north with indirect up the coast. We'll probably ride it out in Northern Florida and then re-plan the rest of our trip from there.

Then there is Invest 92 L that RTF pointed out.

Wifey B: Pretty much. The feel fairly strong on five days and after that they don't know direction or strength.

For those on the East Coast, it's just one to keep your eyes on. For Bermuda, the threat is more likely, but that's still five days out.

Chris Parker this morning increased his probability of this reaching the East Coast from 20% to 40%...definitely in the “keep your eyes on” catagory

Yeah, not feeling all that confident just now...

I have a hurricane plan for when we're home, but just now we're too far away to make it work. Devising Plan B (C, D, E, etc.) as we speak.

Hope is not a plan.

Wifey B: Sure hope those of you on the NC and SC coasts are paying attention. Looks like by the Thursday and Friday time frame you could have a major hit. Although it's only a storm today, forecasts are for a CAT 4. Most of the forecasts are coming more in agreement. By tomorrow I'd expect the coast to be within the five day forecast.

Wifey B: We're clear of the hurricane zone now and safely back in FL.

Our family from Myrtle Beach has joined us and my wonderful niece, Aurora.
