For the folks in SWGA, I hope you guys are paying attention. This storm snuck up on everyone and could be rough.

Nope. We have pretty much been taken out of the rain forecast in NWGA.

My Granny called these the "September gales." She never did understand why everyone got so excited. 'Course she grew up without electricity or indoor plumbing and people died more often. 'Course she also lived in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. Now we're in the Land of the Police State and the Home of the Chicken-Shit.

They didn't have global warming back then.........not until Al Gore invented it.......

60-70 mph makes me a little nervous.....I have 75 year old pines around my house.......I thought they were going to snap when the winds hit 55-60 last go around.

Yeah I’m watching this one. We’ll have trees come down for sure. Not much I can do though...wife is going in for a c-section tomorrow. We’ll be riding it out from the Brunswick hospital. I just hope I don’t come home to a mess with a newborn.

Tie them down so they don't fall over on your house.

Sorry to hear that.. This storm is definitely going to change the landscape. Looking like a Cat 1 all the way up in to middle Georgia ... going to be a lot of trees down and power outages for days if not weeks

Have some friends with places on Cape San Blas and near by. Not going to be good for that area. If that place gets 9' surge, it is gone
