i dont think anyone really knows what we are......As far as being uppity, since Ive lived here(6 years) we have been told that we have a direct hit coming 5-10 times, we have been hit directly ZERO...Fay was just the funniest because it almost made a circle around us with the bulk of the storm always on the other side of the eye from us.
I have learned after being here for over 24 years and living through 2004, to not be concerned until there is really going to be a direct hit. Yes, you should always be prepared for the power outage which is the thing I always fear the most. I live in a pretty secure building with a good roof, so I'm to scared of it being blown apart. Right now, as far as the 11pm report, Gustave is going a little bit more south. That means more movement over water, meaning more strengthening. I see this as a cat 2 or better storm. It could easily make the right hand turn towards Florida, so poor south Florida will get it again.
She we arrange a last minute gathering for you in your honor?
