Looking at the weather maps,  I predict Irma is going to go into the gulf,  that the weathermen are wrong.   Florida's going to miss the bullet with minimum damage.

No predictions here, but if I lived anywhere in Irma's forecast path I'd already be elsewhere by now. This storm could do anything from running straight up through Florida to hugging Florida's gulf coast to cruising right on past, spinning up again and then pulling a Katrina further west.

It is really unfair to label weathermen "wrong." It is not over yet, and, of course, predicting a hurricane's path, days in advance, with absolute precision, is impossible.

I flew my daughter out on Thursday. She just started her college in Fort Lauderdale, half-an-hour north of Miami, along the coast.

One phenomenon caught my eye, though: "Hurricane Irma Is So Strong, It's Sucking Water Away From Bahamas' Island Shore"

Likely some degree of storm surge on Florida's eastern coast. Dunno if there'll be a backlash in the Bahamas afterward. Irma's current path is allowing it to draw water from the Gulf too as it moves north. I have a friend in Orlando…last I heard from her she was planning to hightail it, but where to?

I'll give the superstitious of "ye olden days" some credit: they often saw destructive natural events as punishment for their own shortcomings and failures (as delineated by their particular norms). Their modern-day degenerate counterparts OTOH…  ::)

Florida was "lucky" that Irma was only a Cat 3 hurricane by the time it made final landfall, and that it was at its most powerful over the Everglades rather than a major city.

Now here comes Hurricane José.

No looters here.   I take it nobody's interested in The History of the Peloponnesian War by Thucydides?
