Well, fuck.

My home may end up squarely in the path of soon-to-be-Category 3 Hurricane Dorian. Both Palm Bay squads will be running on default gameplans for the foreseeable future while I make sure my family and our home get through this storm safely. Some things are just more important than a game.

Stay safe, everyone. Hopefully I'll be back on here in a few days so you can laugh about me over-reacting to a big nothing of a storm while my teams sit in last place at 0-4 or something. I will gladly take that outcome right now.

Looks like Dorian is shifting north slowly... You may just dodge a bullet

MEM and Jersey ended up in the losers league - we have one team in league that is all level 79, day 400 dots that will be only obstacle to trophy. I predict that all the MVP trophies will go MEM and Jersey dots.

Stay safe brother and you are correct - Family tops everything. And imo its good to be concerned and even "over cautious". In events like this you dont get a second chance.

Update... just posted this in my team forums, and decided to share it here too.

It's shortly after midnight on Monday morning, and we're about 24 hours away from the start of the tropical-storm force winds. It's late at night, my wife and kids are asleep, and I'm out of things I can do to prepare for the storm for tonight, so I figured I'd jump in here and give you all one last update while I have a chance.

All of our windows are covered with plywood, except our sliding glass door. I have two more sheets of plywood cut and sized and ready to go, and we'll put those up on the glass doors tomorrow. After that, we just have to secure a few loose items in our yard, lock up our 4 backyard chickens in their smaller coop and lock them up in our backyard shed to give them the best chance of survival. And then my wife, our kids, and our dog will pile into our minivan and drive 10 minutes over to my mother-in-law's house to ride out the storm for the duration. Our mother-in-law's house is a bit sturdier than ours, so we figured that would give us one more layer of safety, and our kids one more layer of comfort as they absolutely adore Grandma. Our 3 cats will stay behind in the house... they would be miserable getting shoved into cat carriers and shlepped to another house temporarily while simultaneously having to deal with unfamiliar territory, our own dog (who they hate), our mother-in-law's dog (who they would probably hate), the sounds of the storm howling outside, and our bored, scared, hyper children. At home, they'll have all their usual hiding places, their usual litter boxes, and plenty of food and water. If the house takes damage, they'll be smart enough to stay hidden and out of the way until it's over. I keep telling myself they'll be fine. I'm probably right. I hope I'm right.

Dorian is a monster, and he is basically scouring several small islands clean in the Bahamas as we speak. The good news is that he's forecast to turn north and away from Florida JUST offshore, and the better news is that several factors are about to combine to start weakening Dorian so he'll be down to Category 4 at his closest approach. Problem is, he'll still come close enough to bring winds over 100 miles per hour to our humble city of Palm Bay, about the equivalent of a Category 2 hurricane hitting head-on. And that will just be the crescendo, the climax of a 24-hour-long build up of heavy rain and steadily rising winds that will begin tomorrow night.

This will be the 6th hurricane I've been through in my life: David in 1979 (which I don't remember as I was less than 3 months old), Erin in 1995, Charley and Jeanne in 2004, and Irma in 2017, and now Dorian in 2019. We evacuated for Frances in 2004 and again for Matthew in 2016, though both evacuations turned out to be unnecessary nightmares. Then there was Andrew in 1992... that storm passed well to our south in my youth, but over a month later, my Boy Scout troop went to Homestead on a service trip to help a storm-damaged church. Even a month later, that city still looked like a war zone, and the things I saw will forever be etched into my memory. As an adult, I worked for a guy who had been through Andrew as a young man and watched the roof peel off of his house while he was still inside it. He called it the most frightening night of his life.

If the forecasters are correct, this will end up being much like Jeanne in 2004: no power for several weeks, but no major damage for most people and we slowly and sweatily claw our way back to normal life. I've been through it before, and we can all get through it again. If the forecasters are wrong, however... I don't want to think about that.

It's late, and I need to go to sleep. There's work to do in the morning. God willing, I'll talk to you all again when the lights come back on.

That 'bad feeling' i mentioned earlier has so far turned out to be half-right. I reckoned it was gonna make cat 5 status several days ago... before it started slowing down and, hopefully, turning away from direct landfall. Gonna hope I was only half right. Besides... this bugger ain't done even once she's done with Florida... yawl up the coast had best be buckle'n up too.

Wow, we got REALLY lucky with this one. Tropical-storm force winds for a few hours, some torrential rain, and... it's over. Couldn't take chances with Dorian because of his potential for devastation, but wow, I'm getting tired of preparing for DEATHSTORM 3 times in 4 years only to emerge with an unscathed house and some branches down in the backyard every time.

Tennessee. We should move to Tennessee. I hear they don't get hurricanes there.

Give me a day or two to get back to normal life, and then I'll be back on GLB.

Did you know that if you try to ignore a minor sinus infection while you're trying to get ready for a Category 5 hurricane, it will slowly creep up on you and mutate into a major sinus infection, pinkeye in both eyes, and ear infections in both ears? And that this will most likely occur a day or two after the threat of the hurricane fizzles out?

Thank God antibiotics still work. I just wished they worked faster.

Geez, what a month. It's never the stuff you're really worried about that actually gets you, is it? It's always the stuff you think you don't have to worry about.

If you have a nose like your avatar, you might need more than a month to get well. Only Jimmy Durante had a bigger schnoz. And stay away from my coke.
