Thanks for the update.  I guess we'll have to call it hurricane alley this year.
The Supreme Court has ruled that you, as an individual, have no right to protection by the police. Their only obligation is to protect "society".

Mahalo for the heads up. Don't return your generators or toilet paper just yet

I look at this satellite map to see what is going on in our vicinity

And here you can see storms highlighted:

From the summary near the top of the page, looks like Gil is losing power. Was up to 100 mph and now down to 60-70 mph over recent days.
