Looks like the eye will be over me on Monday morning.  Good news is, slower movement over land will mean it will lose most of its punch by the time it gets here.  Bad news is, it will still be a bad storm regardless.

You see it a lot on certain shows/Youtube.  There's a muppet filming a tsunami, then is totally engulfed!

The eye will be over me on Sunday and I do plan on doing videos. I have gopros that I plan on turning on wireless in a waterproof case, that gives the the option of using them like webcams on my phone to see whats going on outside. Might do a time lapse one also.

I thought about doing that.  Problem is, I have an older GoPro and the battery will only last about 2 hours. If I hook it up to an external power source, I would have to remove the waterproof case.

BTW, the eye will not be going over me anymore.  The path has shifted to the west.  Not a good thing as it will allow the storm to maintain strength longer and will place the Northeast section (the part with the strongest winds, excepting the eyewall) over me. The state is already preparing for statewide power loss.  Already saying this storm will be worse than Andrew (but then again, they say that about a lot of the storms, usual media sensationalism.  unfortunately, might be true this time).

Managed to prepare everything I need except fuel for my camping stove.  Seems all the stores stocked up on propane tanks for backyard grills, but not propane cylinders for camping stoves.  Even the sports stores are sold out.  I guess I'll be resorting to something like this: https://wawanghunting.com/2016/02/29/how-to-make-a-quick-can-stove-2/

I live in the west coast , Charlotte county actually.
Storms are strange you don't want to get hit but
you don't want anyone else to suffer either. One thing is
certain though if Irma moves into the Gulf SOMEONE is going
 to get it.

In '98 I was at the isle of Sint Maarten in the Caribbean, 3 years after a hurricane class 4 hit them and it was still showing damages.

Some of my ex-family in law still reside there. Now after this class 5+ hit the island, which is a tourist cruise ship paradise destination,


it has been completely devastated, so even if worn down to 4, be ware. :o

Looks more like as if been hit by tornados.
Wish you all the best and hang in there.
