I am thinking about heading to Gary's place if the storm keeps turning, and doing a live blog, while also offering guidance for those laying lumber on this weekend's game.

And we don't panic here until Awful House closes for a storm.

I-4 outside of Polk City. Looks like everyone is heading for Orlando, they probably should be heading towards Ocala.

Hero: DeSantis Flies Hurricane Ian To Martha's Vineyard
U.S. Sep 27, 2022 BabylonBee.com
Article Image

TALLAHASSEE, FL Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is being hailed as a hero after he used top-secret technology to reroute Hurricane Ian to Martha's Vineyard.

"I'll tell you what, hurricanes have been tormenting Florida for too long. Not on my watch!" said DeSantis to a crowd of screaming fans. "So you know what? We're gonna load this hurricane onto a plane and fly it north. Martha's Vinyard, you'd better board up your 10,000 square foot mansions and cancel your polo matches, because Ian is on its way!"

Martha's Vinyard residents have responded by flying to their winter homes in Florida and directing their house servants to prepare their homes for hurricane landfall. "The fact that DeSantis would spare his own densely populated cities and send the hurricane to ravage our multi-million-dollar mansions as a political stunt is beyond the pale," said Vineyard resident Karen Von Karen. "First the migrants, and now this? Haven't the good people of Martha's Vineyard suffered enough?"

The DOJ has also responded, saying they will investigate the governor for using unapproved top-secret hurricane trafficking technology. "Hurricane trafficking is a serious offense, almost as serious as protesting at a school board meeting," said Attorney General Merrick Garland. "We will not let this horrific act go unpunished."

At publishing time, the National Guard announced they will return all the Venezuelan migrants back to Martha's Vineyard to assist in Hurricane cleanup efforts.

Thanks!!

Can anyone get SW FL I-75, as may be a parking lot, but in less than one day it seems heading north from Naples and Fort Myers may be a flawed strategy.

Here's the FL511 link for Hillsborough. You can sort for the area.

FL 511

Right now, looks like the roads are calm, but there's been a mandatory evac in zones A-C, so many have already left.

There was a story on the news this morning about the difficulties EV drivers will have evacuating. The designated evacuation routes have no charging stations.

They should all stop by GSC3sportsflannel's house, he probably has a few statioins open at his home, I think he lives in Lakeland, which may be tough, as I-4 is a parking lot.

Nothing life-threatening, you will get a rain for four days and winds under 40 mph, okay to plan the non-Hurricane Party.

Here in Orlando, supplies in, got the Vert stored in a friends garage, all of the stuff that can blow around is secured. Done all we can do. Just keep our fingers crossed. My biggest worry is my late MIL house in Leesburg, it is on the market and under contract, really, really don't need any issues there.

Yea, that creek flows all the way to the bottom of the hill / Aquarius Concourse....runs parallel to it, long ago with some of the neighbors, I walked back through the jungle and actually saw the main 'creek' many other offshoots too, of course....I am told it continues into another burb behind PUBLIX store and some homes were built in the flood zone, and having issues....
