    I'm with ya.

    Two more variables to fall in place and then it's either Florida or the drama continues.

    (1) how does the storm react to Cuba?
    (2) does it make a turn or come off Cuba heading west?

    I think there is a small chance for the door to open to the Gulf or the Atlantic....small chance but better than no chance.

    The Weather Channel just predicted the eye of the storm passing over the Lower Keys (Key West to 7 Mile Bridge), then up into the vicinity of Naples and Sunday into Monday the gulf waters pushing against the coast causing major storm surge up to 12 feet.

    Paul Goodloe is in Naples.

    What a kind and caring person you are! Thank you for offering up your home like that. Here you are willing to cramp your own style in order to help strangers. ( I should say strangers to you, although they're friends of someone you know. )

    Definitely in my WS Hall of Fame!

    Bless you too for training service dog teams. Incredible gift to the recipients...

    LOL....yep, National Hurricane just released their update at 8:00.

    The models will continue shifting back and forth. It will be clearer as it comes off Cuba.

    Would the mountain ranges in Cuba influence the direction Irma moves? As well as lessen its power?

    Whew ... you had me even more worried about possibly taking in strangers ..... until I got nearly to the end of your post. I was getting ready to prepare a thread for you under crimes. :giggle: It is very kind (and helpful) of you to take in some of the people in need.... maybe it will work out to quite a nice adventure. I am sure there will be stories to be shared.

    Does anyone know how bad Ruskin FL is supposed to get hit? Ruskin looks to be not far from Tampa. My best friend has a friend in Florida and she's scared to death for her friend now that it has changed track.

    Hi all I am in Dunedin. Zone E. Riding it out at home. My house is pretty sturdy but trying to force my mom to move out of trailer in Ocala. I am terrified for her and my 18 year old baby brother. (He HATES when I call him that!) Stay safe everyone!

    Hi Mary, IMO, yes to both. Unfortunately any benefits from weakening are expected to be countered by strength fueled from the extremely hot water between Cuba and the Keys, and why the forecast is predicting a cat5 at landfall.

    The position of the high pressure system to the north will also guide the storm off Cuba.

    Hope this helps.

    At first, I wasn't sure. But after seeing these pics, I see the similarities.... See pics of Donna below....
