The "cone" of possibilities encompasses almost all of Florida and part of SE Georgia for Sunday afternoon. It is still early. We won't have a real good idea where it is going until Saturday.

Here is the latest:

We even bought a generator and I have to finish breaking it in, another two hours and then change the Earl (Oil).

Then we're ready for action. Just waiting for our Buddy, Tuccillo to enter and give us some of his wisdom, weather-wise!

We still have provisions from Irma which wasn't much more than a long storm.

Just like up north. As soon as you hear the "S(now) word" on TV you can't buy a bottle of milk or a loaf of bread or a frozen pizza. After experiencing Sandy up north and IRMA right after we moved in here not much more we can do. Still have all the water left that we bought for IRMA in the garage. IRMA (direct hit over TV as a CAT 1) really wasn't so terrible. Fortunately we weren't on the north end of TV were power is a little more exposed and more likely to go out. Up north during Sandy the infrastructure being so old where we lived caused more problem then Irma. We never even lost cable here we had no power up there for 10 days because a neighbors tree took out the power line. If they say it will be CAT2 or 3 then I might think differently but that isn't likely here since we are inland. The east coast of FL is another story. I'm more concerned over neighbors leaving flower pots and other small stuff outside. Wife and I went house to house around us asking our neighbors to take in their 20lb lawn projectiles. Didn't want to find a neighbor's planter in our bedroom.

Irma was not a direct hit on The Villages. It was actually west of us (30 or 40 miles perhaps).

What is Basil Hayden? Too lazy to search. Is it olive oil suffused with Basil? Is it a new wine?

Interesting because I had photos of the television weather report from that night showing the map and the eye of the storm passing directly over TV. I'll have to look for it. I guess it could be off but that's what it showed.
