    Here Comes Hurricane Michael...

    ...and it'll make landfall today as a Category 4!

    145 mph winds, 9-13 feet of peak storm surge. Eep.

    Any Lowngers here from the Florida panhandle or Southern Georgia? If so, what's your strategy? This looks like a mean one.

    Best o' luck, and stay safe.

    Seems a storm this powerful has not hit the panhandle in recorded history. So damage models might have some unknown errors in them.

    It's going to be a rough one no matter what, I hope for the best for all affected.

    Forget the Category ratings... you know how serious a hurricane is by how many Waffle Houses close.

    As per the article headline, the Waffle House Index™ is a thing. Who knew?:

    Hurricane Michael is so bad that some Waffle Houses have closed

    I looked up the Waffle House Index and you are surely right. Invented by FEMA! I don't have any Waffle House's near me so I guess I need a Wawa Index

    What, you want to use a drizzle and a slight breeze as your reference point on when to panic....

    And jokes aside.. my In Laws (parents and brother) are in Tallahassee, the house next door to my parents in law, which was sold by my brother in law just a few months ago.. had it's roof partially ripped off. At least the parents hose seems to have weathered it.

    Dang, that is really scary, LJ.

    Glad the karma gods and/or Lady Luck was on your relations’ side. This was an angry one, not a slow-moving ‘super-soaker’ like Harvey or Florence (which do tons of damage too, over time, via flooding), but more like the classic ‘destroys everything in its path’ action-movie type storm.

    As a California boy who’s more used to quakes and wildfires than that, I hope I’m never in one.

    To be fair, the stretch of highway 98 does seem to have a pretty dense population of Waffle Houses, I think it was one every 3-5 miles with 2 being on the 2 ends of a bridge.
