    Thankfully, this one doesn't appear to have time to swerve in at us. We're still going to get some wind and storm surge. I feel for those on the panhandle though.
    To our panhandle members, if you're seeing this, check in.

    We will. I plan on parking the cars on the opposite side of the house, away from the big oak tree, for the next day or so.

    Good luck mate, thinking about you and friends that also live in the path of that behemoth.

    Temps have dropped to 15C with a passing front.

    Best part is that there was some rain overnight, not a lot but it’s all welcome.

    It's passing by now.

    We're getting the outer bands and some gusts. I took the precaution of parking the cars in the yard on the opposite end of the house from a rather large oak tree. I don't expect the tree to move, but with the way things have gone the last couple months...an easy precaution could prevent added pain.
    SWMBO will move the Soobie when she goes to the chiropractor and then to work and I'll put the old Monte back later on today or tomorrow (depending) so the entitled busy body neighbor lady down the street doesn't turn us in to the city for parking in the yard. :rolleyes:

    Things are looking grim for Panama City.

    It's times like this when I miss Minnesota. Yeah, there's snow and cold, but you don't worry about monsters like this, you grab your boots and your shovel and you dig yourself (and your neighbor) out.

    Michael hit land with a wind speed of 155mph. I'm glad we missed this one, but I feel terrible for folks on the panhandle.

    We're dealing with the outer fringes here Dig, nothing too bad beyond a bit of wind.
    Thankfully rather mild here, unlike up north.

    Thanks for showing us that mate, as you say sorry for the poor buggers that are going through the worst of it.

    Just looking at the devastation on the news channels here, say's it was the third strongest landfall wind speeds. Scary stuff.

    17C & drizzle here.

    No worries. For future reference, St. Petersburg is on the peninsular appendage just west (across Tampa Bay) of Tampa.
    Yup, it was the Unnamed / Labor Day storm of '35, Hurricane Camille, then Michael. Those are the big three as far as making U.S. continental landfall.

    Any wonder why I want to move us the ¶√¢< out of this state / region? Heck, Georgia had to deal with a Cat 1 hurricane in the middle of the state.

    By contrast the weather is quite benign here this morning. Expecting a top of 19C and it’s a pretty, sunny start to our day.

    Watching some new footage of storm Michael on the news and the devastation is unreal, seeing trees snapped in half is frightening to say the least, To lose your home & everything in it must be devastating.

    Heavy rain & windy here 17C.
