We're lucky so far, got power, hot coffee, and my better 9/16's stayed up until the bread machine was finished, so there's fresh bread.  It's getting noisy out there now.

What are 9/16's ?

Many times hurricanes have gone that far north:

August 26, 1873: The Nova Scotia Hurricane of 1873 drifted south of Nova Scotia as a Category 3 hurricane. It weakened to a Category 1 before slowly making landfall in Newfoundland. It was a devastating hurricane that killed over 600. Damage in Nova Scotia was severe. It destroyed over 1,200 boats and over 900 homes and businesses. This is one of Nova Scotia's worst cyclones.

Here is a bunch more:

    Hurricane Juan hit in almost the exact same location as Dorian is now projected to hit, and that was Sept 29, 2003.  It too was a Cat 2, and it did a lot of damage as it crossed the Maritimes.  Dorian is a lot larger, so all bets are off.  Usually, hurricanes lose most of their fury as they hit the cooler north Atlantic, but with global warming, it actually picked up intensity after heading out of North carolina.
    Old Crow, I tried the sharpie, but it didn't work any better for me than for others in changing the direction.

    I didn't have to worry about Dorian changing direction, it came, went almost overhead, heavy winds and lots of rain.  But it was moving at about 30 MPH so it didn't stick around long.  They referred to it as a Post Tropical storm with category 2 wind speeds.  Whatever that means, I don't know other than they said it had developed "typical weather patterns" ????
    Once the eye went over, the wind just stopped.  Now I've got a bunch of leaves to rake, but no damage.  Others were not so lucky, the house across the street had a large tree uprooted and blown over,  and there are a lot of areas without power, plus the storm surge did some damage along the coast line.

but more recently I've liked

  it's a good place to link to several different things...I like that from one source you can bounce to the official nws, but also look at a couple sources for the forecast models+ go to info about the recon aircraft stuff

Hi Ed

Glad you didn't personally  suffer too much damage, at least you did not have to run.... It is still not something I would want to experience. Perhaps by the time I get to Florida, the "season" will be over with for this year.... I hope you get the power back before to long, the good side is that it is not winter quite yet. We lived through the big Ice Storm here in Jan 1998 and had no power for more than 7 days at well below freezing temps. (We did have a wood burning fireplace in the playroom and lived in the there for the duration and heated food on our boats alcohol stove).

     Stu, we never lost power or phone/cable/internet, but we are in the minority.  Had friends, who live on the Halifax side over for a hot supper last night as they have been without power since around 4 PM Saturday.  We got up yesterday to see a couple of younger gentlemen with their chain saws cutting up the downed elm tree.  They are just couple of neighbouhood guys out to do a good deed, and wouldn't even take money to pay for the gas.
     As for the sharpie, I see that a much weaker, but still dangerous Dorian is heading up to Greenland.  Is it somehow being aimed?   ;)

Yes it is being aimed. It missed West Palm Beach and is heading for Greenland. Guess who is in control of it?
