If that track chart up there in the first post is any indication(ya right, when have they ever gotten that right), it would continue on a course to hit somewhere between Daytona and Jax next Saturday.

But these things are too unpredictable.

Just saw there's a chance another tropical depression may form off the Carolinas which would draw Isabel more northward, which would just have the Carolina people doing handstands, I'm sure. At this point, no matter where it goes, the sheer size of this storm is it will affect Florida. It's only a question of how much and how bad. If it hits the east coast as a Category 4/5 storm, it will hit us on the West coast as a Category 2 storm, which is plenty bad enough. At least the west coast shouldn't have to worry about a real bad storm surge. All we can do is wait. AND I HATE WAITING....

As somone that lives in Jacksonville I'm sure hoping Isabel doesn't come here but then again I wouldn't want to wish it on anyone else I hope it doesn't mess with the poker run the weekend of the 20th. I'm planning on seeing the boats as they come into the Crab Shack Time to go buy some water and batteries just in case.....

Have you seen the latest reports?????
I'ts now classified as a catagory 5 hurricane. That's the same strength that Hurricane Andrew reached prior to hitting Homested.
Air Force weather flight indicated an air temp of -70C (-94F) in the cloud tops.

We've got to keep and eye on this one!

It is certainly one to think and prepare for, last hurricane to threaten jacksonville, traffiic heading west on I-10 stood at a standstill for over 6 hours, most people ending up turning around and going home. by the looks of this one. there may not be a home.

We are ready to leave for Florida to start looking for a home. I guess I better get used to this. So what do all the boaters do when one of these babies comes to town. I imagine yu can find shelter for trailerable boats but what do the biggers guys do?
