Then don't write your name on your arm. Let the government figure out who you are without it. So what if it takes a week? If you're dead you wont be in any hurry . Right ? laugh
Like Al said, I am in the government. I made that statement because I know how screwed up it is.

not trying to offend but the point would be, i believe, is that CNN,referred to as the Clinton news network is slanted very liberal and the followers of that network the same, maybe.
I concur.  thumbsup

I concur.  thumbsup

 Come across as a doctor, LOL.


 Funny about CNN being all about some politician.  Tunnel vision can be a good or bad thing, depending on your personality.  Forming opinions about what folks read or watch is part of the problem with today's society. I just read for the story. As I read other media outlets also.


 If only the media could slant the weather . Bad enough all media does is cause panic in these storm scenarios. Home Depot and other supply stores make a killing off bad storms.  Folks shouldn't become paranoid over any media outlet reporting the weather or weather related info. Adding a political slant to a story where folks  have lost everything from a storm  is not the time.

 Hoping the meteorologist are spot on with the storm so folks can be prepared. Also hope it goes out to sea, with only storm surges to deal with. But it is Hurricane season, so staying informed is a vital.

 Still no definite ideas on where Irma goes after Florida. If it goes west after Florida, Wow.

Some latest info on Irma


Euro has it going into Miami and then back out to sean and second landfall around Charleston. GFS has it skimming the east coast of Fla and making landfall near Myrtle.

  Notice GFS has is stronger storm since it stays off the FLA coast. This would be worst case since it will skim the coast and his Charleston SC area as a stronger storm.

Personally, that person recommending info on the arm was only half correct.                                                               (He should have also recommended wearing a PFD , so the rescuers could find the body easier.)

 






I agree with you 100% on that . I wear a self inflated PFD at "all times" on a watercraft . When I was stopped last week by a Maryland Marine DNR Officer I was surprised he wasn't wearing one as   "mandatory personal safety equipment " Wearing a self inflated PFD by the DNR while on a watercraft would be a good example of how serious they are about the matter. Having a PFD on the watercraft won't keep you afloat when you fall from a watercraft. Everyone thinks they will have plenty of time to get a PFD on in the event of an unexpected mishap. WRONG .The new inflatable PFDs are so small and light weight ,you forget you have one on even on a hot day. You can get them on sale sometimes for $50 . No matter how well you can swim or the great physical shape you think you are in . You can still drown from falling from a watercraft . They are cheap life insurance .

From a article in the Sunspot this morning. Still not clear on the affect Irma will have on MD.

Beyond the Florida landfall, forecasters are expecting the storm to bring heavy rain and strong winds into the Southeastern U.S., but it was still unclear which parts of the region would receive the biggest impact. Irma is expected to weaken to a tropical storm over Alabama, Georgia or South Carolina by late Monday.

That track will determine whether Maryland sees much of any of the storm — an easterly path could bring heavy rain and blustery winds, but a westerly one could mean little impact here.





“The most likely timeframe for potential impacts from Irma in our forecast area would be later Monday through Wednesday,” forecasters at the National Weather Service’s Baltimore/Washington office wrote Friday morning

I believe this rain today is a leftover of Irma. So sad these hurricanes caused so much destruction . But glad we are only seeing light rain here.
