Heading my way after demolishing the Bahamas.

The Bahamas this year. P.R. and Eastern North Carolina last year. Fucking nasty nasty stuff.

It is brutal to see on TV here for sure, glad I am on the west coast....only thing I have to worry about is Earthquakes.

Good friend of mine is from Beaufort, SC....they are gone and have evacuated and hope he has a place when he gets back.

It's one thing seeing it on T.V. another when it's up close and personal. I've worked following a bad tornado and the amount of damage observed is amazing. Hurricanes are devastating, the flooding immense and the spread of the affected area huge.

A tornado comes and goes in minutes, a hurricane howls on for hours or even days.

All good mate.  Plant shut down for two days, making my next paycheck the biggest storm casualty for me.  Couple of short power hits that got me off my ass and ordering a UPS for my computer stuff.  Back to work tomorrow at least for a while.

I was born in Montreal, which is not known for extreme weather, just very humid. I think about a decade ago, winds reached 70 mph, maybe a little less, and it was enough to turn over semi trucks on a bridge. What the Bahamas had, 300k/185 mph......I couldn’t imagine. I don’t think any home is designed to withstand that much force. 

Thank God it’s down to a Category 3 as it hits the USA. Heard it will even touch Eastern Canada and cause flight delays

Not going to be nearly as bad as Florence was. That was a ball buster. Bahamas sure got f***d though.

Here not much of anything actually, a rainy, windy day.  We'll see today when I try to get in to work though.

White House releases latest path of Hurricane Dorian.

No wonder Trump was a real estate mogul, he lives rent-free in heads all over the world.

Early model showing Trump was right during his briefing:

Actual error, by liberals of course:

There's a lot I don't like about Trump, but one thing I do like is that he makes his opponents look stupid almost every time they go against him.  Comedy gold.

That’s funny mate. Never really cared for the stuff, but there are certainly some shops that can make it well. All I can say is a full size poutine(not a side) must be one of the highest calorie things on earth, worse than pasta. When I was a kid and only weighed around 200 and was serious about the gym, every time I weighed myself I was at least 3 pounds heavier the day after a big poutine. 

It’s really gaining popularity, though. At least 5 shops here in Calgary specialize in the dish. Best I ever had was in 1999, had a friend who took me to Quebec City. A chain called Ashton, open late after the bars closed. Pepper, sausage, steak......you name it. Think I paid $10, that was a lot for fast food 20 years ago, but my mate was right- best poutine in the province

Oh dear, who'll be the first to apologize to Trump this time (I'm used to getting no apologies):

https://www.noaa.gov/news/statement-from-noaa

"From Wednesday, August 28, through Monday, September 2, the information provided by NOAA and the National Hurricane Center to President Trump and the wider public demonstrated that tropical-storm-force winds from Hurricane Dorian could impact Alabama. This is clearly demonstrated in Hurricane Advisories #15 through #41, which can be viewed at the following link."

Now waiting for all the same apologies that would have been demanded for Obola.  Breath held:  Not.
