I thought hurricanes lose strength when going over cold water. I don't remember the water around the British isles being particularly warm.
It's the Gulf Stream 'innit! That's why you get palm trees in Cornwall and on the Scottish islands.

Yeah, The western part of Virginia is proper fucked. 30+ inches of rain possibly.
hope it doesn't get worse from here. they're saying it could still grow to a cat 5 and get larger at the same time.

I think it's definitely going to be getting larger. Cat 5, maybe, it's pretty far north for that.

Please hurricane gods let there be fewer hurricanes so I can get a bonus next year without the record claims payouts.

Are you leaving? They're calling for evacuations. Even DC is in a state of emergency. I wonder where they will fly the President? Back to Trump Tower in Manhattan in I reckon.

No, it's going way south of me.

Cat 3 just refers to wind speeds - this thing is still a monster that will linger over the coastal areas with torrential flooding rains.
The floods are gonna be the issue, I think that's pretty much agreed upon at this point. The way this thing is looking to loiter is going to exacerbate it.

Has it been confirmed yet by CNN and Google logarithms that the hurricane is down to Trump and Russian collusion?

Outer bands starting to make landfall. FEMA already foaming the runway by saying people should expect to be without power for weeks.

One of our jobs is scheduled to have a bunch of power poles relocated 1st week of October. I told the owner in case he wasn't aware that he wasn't going to see those poles moved for quite some time.

Current modeling suggests Isaac could turn up and hit Florida.

Invest 95L still a disorganized mess, but aimed at Corpus Christie now.

Modeling has it hitting the gulf side of Florida, but it’s too early to say with any certainty. My friend is the EMC in St Pete’s. She works harder than we do! Most hurricane-prone city in the US.

They're saying this hurricane is going to push a blast of warm 25C weather into these here parts next week. Actually, appreciated the change in the weather of late, I've had enough of that 37C for near 8 weeks solid and no clouds in the sky. My experiences in the tropics is that you get plenty of cloudy and rain days, so you don't get bored with endless summer.

Didn't this hurricane start on your side of the pond? I didn't know it can boomerang the other way.
