    None of that is going on here. Everyone is so pissed that it didn't show up. All the stress, time and preparation and it no-shows. Now no one is going to evacuate next time.

    Sad but so true...
    Stay safe.

    I blame the non-stop media hype on this, and it will get people killed when one of these big storms comes straight in again.

    It honestly was too much. I'm being serious when I say people are pissed. We were told to prepare for the apocalypse. Then it ends up walking WORLDS away from their initial forecast? Of course we don't trust you anymore.

    I sympathize with the Bahamians though. They did get hit very hard and will take many years to rebuild what once was.

    It's going to take that so that people have faith in the system again. If the boy keeps crying wolf and the wolves never come, no one cares. It will take the wolves coming and eating the flock for people to care again. Then the boy will cry wolf again when there are none and the cycle will continue.

    Everyone who experienced this should look at this event (which is not over yet) in a positive way:

    1. There was no loss of life or property and if so, it would have been devastating for all not to mention what effect it would have on life and property insurance

    2. Accept the fact that Meteorologist do the very best they can and understand that not all things are predictable and that it is up to all of us to be prepared for the unpredictable

    3. This has now become a training event for your family and we are now (as a family) better prepared as we have earned from this event what actions and necessities will be needed next time

    4. We are all safe and we feel blessed to have been spared trauma that could have been otherwise

    5. Life is good

    We went through Michael, along with family that live in Port St. Joe and some members on here. We would not have minded at all if all we went through was prepping and then it missing us...

    Beats Matthew a few years ago. Was supposed to turn right and didn't. Caught many around here by surprise

    Like everybody before them prepared for the same, but I don't think they will get more than a glancing blow as this storm accelerates past them.

    WTF is this amazing troll site? I've never seen it before. They need up up their game with some fake citations to some mildly faked publications. The lack of citations and the author being "David" isn't very convincing.

    Gotta go to work today. Only rain and 25-35 mph winds. The world of IT doesn't sleep. Thoughts and prayers with those in the Bahamas and those affected. Stay safe everyone!

    If I remember correctly, that was not long after Katrina, so people weren’t taking chances. Can’t believe people are upset that Dorian didn’t do a lot of damage. We’re two years post Harvey, and there’s still people who haven’t gotten their homes back.

    Rita didn’t do crap, but here’s a picture near my house after Harvey. This house is on stilts. It actually sits on the property we lived on when we first got married. We got flooded out in 94, and moved. Our old house would basically be sitting right under this one....

    @GravityGear, this is why I don't leave when they forecast......It's Headed Right For Us. It's a CYA for States and counties involved to evacuate. You can't blame them, as they should do it. The media on the other hand is a joke in their coverage and overkill. I would rather be at home dealing with the aftermath then somewhere that also might be without power and not being able to get home due to trees down on interstate blocking travel for days. We went through that shit with Isabel. Stay safe whatever you decide to do.:cool:
