    Watch NBC news. They’ll have at least one.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    You might even see them rowing a canoe in four inch deep water while some people stroll on by in the background.

    I was texting with 2 of my old neighbors yesterday...

    Neither had put up their storm shields yet which
    I just can't believe! I know we are not there anymore
    but I felt like screaming at them!!

    One guy is in the Air Force and he teaches chopper
    pilots. He had been tasked with moving one of the
    birds to TN. He left his wife and dog at the FL house
    and he said she hadn't yet decided if she was
    going to leave!!! They wanted people off all roads
    by 3am today. I don't know wtf he was thinking...
    The poor dog!!!! LOL, just kidding...

    I hope she at LEAST got someone to help her
    put the hurricane shields up.

    And 2 other people we know there also haven't
    put up their shields, they were waiting till this
    morning!!! Again, WTF!!

    Even though where we were isn't going to take
    a direct eye wall hit, it's going to be bad and I'm
    sure they will lose power. Flooding is again almost
    a certainty.

    Plus you can get the little spin up tornadoes...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    I just heard from one of my ex-neighbors and
    it looks like the Pensacola area will be spared
    the worse. He has some friends in Panama City
    and that will be a very different story.

    It was still on an upward trend. If there was still 6 hours left before landfall, it would likely have been a category 5. It passed on the east side of Panama Beach, so the damage there will be a bit less. Mexico Beach though...

    Yeah you could see the eye tightening up, it would
    have been a CAT 5 for sure.

    It looks like it hit land with 155 mph winds (just short of a 5), but the latest update shows the barometric pressure just shot up. That means it's starting to weaken, and quickly.
