Jenn, that's equally awesome! (And I say that having declared a moratorium on the word "awesome" in January 2017.)

This could well be a two-parter, wreaking havoc across Florida, then getting into the Gulf and heading who-knows-where.

Oh, Phyllis, bite your tongue!  I am NOT prepared for anything to come to Mississippi this year.  Yesterday was the 14th anniversary of Katrina and I'm still recovering from all the retrospectives on television.

IKR? I just feel, after last year's experience, like everything I thought I knew about hurricanes in my particular part of the world is out the window--except the way they can dance around the Gulf for days, going this way and then that.

Looks like it's supposed to turn again. I'm pretty stoked that I just get to watch this from the comfort of my home. People in ATL are weird though. They are all nervous about it "hitting" them and I'm all "LOL wat???"

 

They did that in 2017 with that hurricane that went up the center of FL and it was hilarious that schools and government offices were closed here for a little rain.

As of this morning, Florida looking pretty good.  North and South Carolina, maybe not so much.  Never a dull moment during high hurricane season.

Atlanta drivers generally lose their composure completely when it rains hard--which makes no sense whatsoever, considering the average annual rainfall stats. To really understand the community storm-siege mentality, though, you have to factor in the ice storm of 2014. The mayor and the governor were both not paying attention until it was too late, and all gov't offices and schools closed at once, in the early afternoon, as the storm was setting in. Everybody in Atlanta can't go home at once, even on a good day and this was a very bad day. Thousands of people were stranded on the road overnight, kids were trapped at school overnight with no provisions, it was an unholy mess. A few people died. 
Lots of drama queens love storm prep, granted, but there's also some genuine trauma in the backstory.

It seems Dorian is showing a liking for the Carolinas.  Charleston (a great city) is likely to get hammered.  The Atlantic coasts for both N and S Carolina the same.

 

Last year's hurricane added one dog to this manegerie bring the total to 4.  Translated, that means "Dorian, I can not afford another rescue. Stay the he// out of my backyard!"

 

Ohana, the last hurricane rescue, and no, her rump is not this large - odd angle.  Smiley HappyOhana June 2019.jpgOhana salivating over squirrels

Wendy, what about a frontal photo of Ohana?
