    There are many reasons why there were 13 original colonies, not 14. Currently in Delray Beach listening to neighbors claim how many hurricanes they have endured, stolen valor since landfall is a few hundred miles west. I will never understand why anyone moves here. Utter shite

    This happens over and over and lull’s people into thinking they will hunker down for the next one. Many don’t realize that enduring a hurricane where the eye wall is just 10 miles away is very different from going through the eye wall. Or where the surge piles up vs gets pulled out to sea.

    It seems like a "12 to 16 foot storm surge" would basically flood the entire state. Not exactly a place with lots of high ground.

    If the amount of water was infinite yes, but it will only be that high hitting the coast then spreading out and dissipating as it spills farther in. 2 hurricanes hitting east and west at the same time FTW?
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    The surge at the coast combined with over a foot of rain inland will probably cause a fair amount of flooding.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    Especially if it stalls like they're saying. Shades of Houston a couple years ago... Slow moving disaster..

    Looks like the most current track has it regaining strength once it crosses the Florida peninsula just in time to hang a left right into HHI/Sav.

    Neat.

    Matthew was a mess, here's hoping that one knocked down all the real bad shit that hadn't been grounded in years. Dorian too.

    Point of order: Florida succeeded from the Union before Georgia did. Can’t get more rebel than that.

    I hear you, I'm just dealing with modern times, and really, as BoltonOutlaw points out, colonial times. The South isn't what it was in Civil War era; rebel doesn't make you Southern. As long as I've been alive it's been the South, and separately, Florida. (Texas has similar issues too, imho)

    Florida is its own entity. Poor Georgia was just a buffer colony to keep the Spanish and debtor hordes at bay. Nowadays it's there to serve as the major metro for 1/4 of the country, and again, to serve as a buffer for everyone else from what is in Florida.

    You're all welcome.

    At one point, he reportedly asked about using nuclear bombs to diffuse a hurricane. In fairness, this idea was a variation of a tactic that had worked quite successfully, um, in the original Sharknado movie.

    We feel your pain. Matthew was the last one where we had to file a claim for roof damage. The mountains are probably going to get pounded, slides and flash floods..

    My buddy up in the N Ga Mtns was locked in for 10 days with treefalls during Irma. That shit tore straight up the state and didn't give a damn. Once those hurricane/tropical storm winds hit the mountains it just all turned to twisters.

    Gonna be a shitty weekend.
