    I know... So not cool. [​IMG] It's going to be scary to see what it does once it hits the warm Gulf waters. God bless anyone who's in its path. Please be safe all you BYC'ers.

    Yep it's about to be a 5...
    no fun in store for us for sure. We'll likely head out of here soon and I have no one to take in my birds, and as it is finding a place to go w/5 dogs is gonna be hellacious

    I was worried when it was a Cat 1 that it would be huge simply from it's low pressure readings. It rated then at 981 mb. Usually, a dead giveaway it's going to strengthen. I'll have to check and see what it is now.

    Good luck to you southern folk.

    found it, at 5 pm 942 mb.

    Nasty :|

    edited to add pressure
