A friend of Edgar just posted on FB that they are fine, other than no internet right now.

Don't look now but Hurricane Irma rears her ugly head.

S Florida is praying for a high pressure front that will push Irma North and out of harms way.

Pan: I am a bit rusty when it comes to Florida geography. Would you post a map of FL here. I found one that looks good from your state's DMV offices.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Monday declared a state of emergency for every county to ensure that local governments have enough "time, resources and flexibility to get prepared for this dangerous storm," according to a statement from his office.

Scott said in the statement that Irma is a "life-threatening" storm and Florida "must be prepared."

"In Florida, we always prepare for the worst and hope for the best," Scott said, "and while the exact path of Irma is not absolutely known at this time, we cannot afford to not be prepared."

Meanwhile...while waiting to see if Irma can outdo Harvey...
Is there any sign of Edgar from Houston?

Friends in Guadaloup are very nervous right now.

Juan is right behind Irma. There is some concern they could join forces.

@ehBeth,
My writer pal in Puerto Rico says she and her family are okay because they're in the south and they weren't hit as hard - but if Juan is coming then the second hit might not be so easy.

One of RP's cousins is in Florida and is not evacuating; I take it her brother is (he's also in FL). No idea what's going on with their mother. She's either 90 or close to it.

This is a worrisome year and it's barely getting started.

Irma is currently pushing into Puerto Rico with the eyewall- the strongest part of the storm- forecast in most models to pass just north of capitol city San Juan.

Hurricane #Irma is so big that it would cover the UK and Ireland. It's currently heading through the Caribbean towards Florida this weekend.

@realjohnboy,
Just chatted with a relative of Edgar's on FB. They are still waiting for their tv and internet connection to be repaired. They do have phone service.

@panzade,
So, Panzade, do you have any special plans for today or tomorrow?

@realjohnboy,
Yes. I'm having a new A/C installed this morning. The old one conked out Monday. And we're playing a hurricane party gig tonight at a local club.
I'll probably go by the grocery store and look for a hand powered can opener as well as some canned ravioli. Very Happy

I am worried more about Irma than I ever worried over Harvey. We had our share of tragedy here, but I thing that one may be worse. I hope all my friends in Florida and elsewhere take appropriate action.
