Smart guy, that Fred.

Wait! Are you saying I look like George Carlin?

Angry

Oh man, if I could speak to the dead ... (sigh) we all could have gained a lot from Douglas Adams' insights in the last few years. Undecided

Oh and yeah, and I was thinking of this picture, of the G.C. with the white hair and the posture and black jumper, setting the record straight. At least, that's sort of the vibe I was getting looking through my phone's tiny screen.

Oh fuck.

By Thursday I’m grabbing my wife, dog, a few keepsakes and I’m outta here.

Sad

Except if you can't evacuate, which is what I faced last year with Matthew. I thought I was so clever with my escape route until I learmed the roads were jammed and that I physically couldn't go anywhere.

I’ll just get of the rock and stay with parents in their cinder block house in the event they need help, they are far enough inland to avoid coastal flooding. They were in that house during Hurricane Andrew and other than a few missing roof tiles and a downed fence they made out all right.

A good plan too.

Getting out sooner is rarely a mistake. Sticking around to see what happens, can be.

RE: Are You Ready For Hurricane Irma?
As we speak it’s bumper to bumper getting out of the Keys, the Labor Day crowd. If by Wednesday night or Thursday morning the track hasn’t changed and it still looks like we’ll be getting the brunt we’ll be on the road. I have insurance.

In no particular order:

HURRICANE PLAN

1 Tie up boat with straps to lift
2 Bring in all outdoor furniture & loose items
3 Elevate treadmill and closet items
4 Elevate storage and laundry items
5 Pack keepsakes and valuables
safe box
personal briefcase
Past tax records
2017 binders
Revolver
Camera equipment
Computers
old divelogs
6 Shutters
7 Take both cars to Miami
8 Cooler with water & food non-perishable food
9 Underwater lights
10 Medicines
11 Place bank safe deposit box items in ziplocks
