Ok, I taped the westward facing impact windows.

On the eastward facing side I shut the shutters, and we have 18' of hurricane glass doors.

L-T tracks are now showing the eye missing the tip of FL completely and coming ashore at Sarasota.  Another tick to the west and this thing might plow into the panhandle.

Just got dark outside and the winds are strong.

Hoping this things blows right by us.

Last I read, Irma is about 800 miles in diameter.  Even if it goes up the west coast, I'd think you're going to get at least tropical storm winds, maybe even Cat 1.

That is what we are planning for here. 8-12 inches of rain is what they are predicting and maybe 2-4 feet of storm surge. That storm surge shouldn't do any significant damage up here.

>sucking water

Yeah, that's where some of the water for the surge comes from.  I've seen our 3-mile-wide river's water level change 4 feet in 15 minutes as one hurricane passed.  Besides wind speed, speed along the track makes a big difference here. Slow-moving ones like Irma have time to pull in more water.

I'm fine. We've been on holiday in Wisconsin, Iowa, and now South Dakota. Normal September prairie weather, I'd say.

I'm saying prayers for my friends who are closer to Irma.
