How spooky is this considering the track looks almost identical to that of Hurricane Bill right now.

The second link is very intresting. It apears that there is already a person who has questioned this. Also wasn't there a "It could happen tomorrow" episode about a hurricane hitting NYC?

Last I checked, I believe there is a cold front pushing east. You can expect it to influence the hurricane, and that is the reason for the expected turn.... in my floridian-trial-by-fire-weather-forecasting opinion.

I tell ya how it's going to roll:

-emergency service workers will get to work 20 hour days
-Mayor is going to make some retarded speech
-city is going to come to a halt for a day, unite and than fall into regular apathy and insensitivity we are known for
-people are going to flood the hospitals
-someone is going to make a sacrifice and make morning paper (as in Joe Doe is a hero because he helped an old lady cross the street during hurricane)
-week after when all is over and safe, stores will run out of water, flashlights and duct tape

Thats why you already bought your stuff, right? Cause you will be at work.
I do the things that I must, and really regret, are unfortunately necessary.

Anyone who regularly visits this site and doesn't already have all that stuff should just Log Out and stop reading, you're wasting your time here.

Supplies should be acquired before the emergency. Some supplies should be used for practice before the emergency so you don't do it the first time for real. That even applies to food; do you like it? Can you like it for two weeks?

Anything you buy ahead of the emergency is stockpiling; any supplies you buy during the emergency is hoarding.
Better is the Enemy of Good Enough.
Okay, what’s your point??

Good to see the east coast is dodging the worst of it. I wonder the effect of these instances in which a hurricane is an imposing threat for a time but doesn't pan out.

Will the unrealized threat save lives in the future as more people started thinking of preparedness or do they increase complacency because in the end nothing happened?

I remember the federal government being closed for a day on the chance that Hurricane Hugo could come up the Chesapeake Bay.

Ended up being a gorgeous sunny day. My roommates and I had not a care in the world and it never crossed our minds to take precautions. Preparedness was not in our vocabulary. Back then we lived at work and Happy Hour and didn't think about much outside of that.

Surprising in hindsight, because one of my roommates was from Mobile and had childhood memories of Hurricane Camille, among others in the intervening years. She used to talk about post-hurricane block barbeques to use up the meat in everone's freezers during the ensuing power outages.
