I hadn't thought about this. This sucks.

Quote :
Exactly how badly Kennedy will get walloped depends on a few factors. Firstly, will the storm stay its projected, coast-hugging course? If it passes Kennedy even a few miles further out to sea, the damage might be considerably less. Secondly, will Matthew’s arrival coincide with high tide? As the National Hurricane Center notes, “surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances.”

If the storm does hit at high tide, the NHC warns of surges as high as 9 feet from central Florida all the way up into southern Georgia. Most of Kennedy’s infrastructure sits between five and ten feet above sea level.

Not to mention the six million Floridians, Bahamanians, Haitians, Jamaicans and Cubans affected.

I had thought about those. We actually still own property in Jacksonville, as well as knowing a bunch of people there, so that aspect hasn't escaped me. But losing all the hardware at Cape Canaveral didn't cross my mind until last night.

Elon Musk will be landing a rocket in the worst of it, just for fun.

I saw some recordings from a satellite last night. That's a big damned storm.

Already three hundred dead in Haiti.

Hurricanes suck.
