HOLY COW....I am getting an amazing lightening storm off to my East. That storm is heading my way and it isn't looking good at all. THe pressure in my head is killing me. For the past 20 mins. Grim reminder of CHarley. I had the same problem with him. I just took about four Tylenols hopefully that will help. We shall see......

Phil, when you say more north...you don't mean closer to Katie and Bobbo, huh?

If they weren't so lame, they'd've never discounted it.

From the looks of waning VIS, the eyewall is really starting to crank now...

Predictions:

* Rapidly intensifying 125mph at landfall around Naples with freaky gusts over the keys in excess of 150mph (and to 100+ in Miami).

* The storm surge into the Everglades is going to be absolutely phenomenal.

* Wilma won't weaken prior to landfall for two reason: 1. Despite "drag" from Cuba, Wilma is running over the ribbon of very warm deep-layer water which represents the Gulf "loop current" which squirts through the Florida Straits and becomes the Gulf Stream; this is some of the best "fuel" in the Atlantic for explosive intensification. 2. Accelerating movement is keeping pace with increasing shear; Wilma is evolving into an annular donut-cane (as is often seen at higher lattitudes prior to cold-water suffocation).

* There will be a slight right-ward tug as Alpha slingshots up the east side and induces a brief Fujiwara-ish interaction until it pulls away up ahead of the trough.

Just a friendly reminder to those with generators:

Do not run them indoors. Period

Carbon Monoxide poisoning is often a large killer in hurricanes like this.

That is all for now.

Excellent advice, as well as make sure you have plenty of gas for it, because you never know how long you'll be running it. Another side note...don't wait until the last minute to get things from the store. Go now, get what you need, and get prepared.
