It did exactly that.
    BUT IT WAS THREE MILES SOUTH OF THAT LINE ON THE MAP!!! THEY TOTALLY BUSTED THE FORECAST!!!
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    I think the messaging should have been more direct. Maybe something like: "Hey, get the fuck away from the Florida Gulf Coast! Yes, this mean you!!"

    What does the Venn diagram of people who post “personal responsibility” memes on Facebook and “why didn’t the government tell me!” look like?

    It's a stew of denial, hearsay, anecdote, and probably some numbness to storm sensationalism but mostly people think they're smarter than the average bear when at least half are not.

    ^^ I literally heard someone bitch Biden wasn’t visiting Florida fast enough last week then bitch today that his visit required them to shut down airspace so insurance adjusters couldn’t use drones and closed some highways and why was he visiting so soon.

    Our own resident morons Cono and Scotty B were also on the “is the media blowing this all up” and “why isn’t Biden visiting FL?” trains.

    Florida man is still in the angry finger pointing phase.

    Soon will come acceptance and regret, then an insurance check will come and they get back on the carousel to have it happen again.

    It’s like this weird lingering old school American idiot mentality “we will rebuild, nothing can keep me from my home, Bootstraps and hard work, tame nature, take no shit”

    We ain’t tough, we’re mostly made of water.

    Blah blah blah.

    Nature always wins.

    They should really publish warnings for storm surge and hurricane force winds.

    Oh wait, they do!

    Seriously - the weather service has GOBS of information. Most of it presented in both a graphical and text format.

    That won't stop mouth-breathing morans from complaining, though...

    These same people were probably blooming the media for over blowing the storm as it was approaching.

    When Ian inundated coastlines near Naples with as much as 12 feet of water, locals were stunned, and D’Antuono was frustrated. “We can hit an asteroid with a satellite 6 million miles away, but we can’t accurately predict where a hurricane’s going to go,” he said.



    I hope the State of Utah warns me before the big earthquake hits here that's long overdue. And don't tell me we can't predict them, we can send a man to the moon and we can precisely have a satellite hit a comet, surely we can predict an earthquake!

    But I don't believe in science so I'm kinda conflicted here.

    Umm, no. I never said anything about Biden and what I did say was the media will probably fuck it up again. And I stand by that.

    If I was in a hurricane path the last thing I’d rely on is Fox, Cnn, MSNBC.

    Personally, there are weather geek forums infrequent in such time.

    Come on man, I get drunk and stoned enough and post, no need to make shot up.

    Amazing how much the story changes when you're the one needing the help.

    We haven't heard from Bobby Stainless since the last hurricane. Maybe this one flushes him out?

    Rumor is that at least one insurance company will announce it is folding right after the midterms. Supposedly Desantis wanted no mention of it before the election.
