F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

So this weekend I had planned to go down to the Outer Banks NC in Rodanthe where my family has a spot. Ive only been able to make it down twice this year due to time and finances. I always go the weekend before Labor Day as a way to end the summer and gotten a couple people together as well to do a little fishing and partying. A couple day ago Florida was gettin a catogory 2 hurricane, this morning Wilmington North Carolina is getting a catogory 3 hurrincane late Friday night which is just a little south of where Ill be. Just a month ago I was camping and fishing in 100+ degree weather, should I continue my summer of extreme weather? Probably not, so F HURRICANES!!!!!!!

..........Actually your getting my Hurricane that has mercifully swung East so it will now effectively miss Florida (except for a brush on the Atlantic coast). Sorry about your weekend

Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

I was looking forward to watching the Skins game Thursday night down there. Something about being down at the beach makes everything better, grilling seafood, margaritas, sun and sand and then Jon Beck going deep down field to quiet the hatters...it doesnt get much better than that

I've been to Rodanthe.
Camped at the KOA in a cabin with a very squeeky fan.

Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

If you own property down there you have a pass when they close down the island. I went down back in 1991 for hurrican BOB. It brushed the Outer Banks and was gone over night. I actually made CNN news as they followed us through a small store. They showed us getting tape, water, and then beer. They left the store so we put back the tape and water and just purchased the beer. We saw winds around 80 MPH but they did not do much damage.

Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

I'll have to say if I had the chance to do that again I would pass. When we left for Nags Head the storm only had gust around 60mph but it pickup allot of power over the day. It went to a catigory 2 in just a couple of hours. I have pictures of us as the only car going into Nags Head and the long line of trafic leaving.

You actually drove to a area with a hurricane? Genius.

I actually know exactly what FD is talking about with all traffic heading out. FD is a hellava thrillseeker.

Latest Models (This will update everytime the site updates the image):



I still think it's going to continue to swing out to sea and miss the Eastern Seaboard, but then again, my name isn't Jim Cantore. Considering this time yesterday, it was going to hug the Florida Gulf Coast and now it's going to miss the Florida Atlantic Coast, I think it's feasible that Irene keeps swinging East.

Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

It has been steadily swinging Easterly. Original path was straight up the center of Florida. It has obviously swung several hundred miles East

Hurricane IRENE

Re: F Hurricanes...not the football team (but f them too)

I hope it keeps turning east. Spoke with a friend yesterday who thought most likely that was gonna happen. Gonna wait tomorrow to see if its a go or not, being stuck down there in the rain aint a great time

I'm suppose to go down Friday afternoon but not sure what I'm going to do. It looks like its going to be a big storm so I would only go if it was 100% chance it will not hit OBX. As far as rain most of the time after one passes the skys are nice and clear. There will be some great waves from this storm.
