Anyone on this forum live close to the "cone" area of this storm? How are you handling it, knowing that Isaias is on it's way? When we lived in Florida, we talked to several folks that will say "tropical storms and hurricanes are just part of living here". IOW, just like winter snow/cold is just part of living in Colorado. Anyway, one of the reasons we left Jacksonville, FL and came back to Colorado..........Tropical Storms and Hurricanes. During the 10 1/2 years there, we went thru a few tropical storms and two hurricanes. Mathew's outer bands hit us and Irma went right over us.
