9-7-17 11:15 AM EST: Floridians are bracing for a category 5 Hurricane Irma, and evacuations have begun. It isn't very clear where it's going to hit either. It might just go right up the center of the state. Pretty scary.
Am wondering what Mr and Mrs Tin will do. Yikers. It's not supposed to be a big rain event due to the speed of it, but they are expecting quite the rapid major storm surge. Cat 4 or 5 winds will be significant too, and will likely tear up some stuff. Am happy to be way up in Michigan right now.
