    Michael being be the likely name of Invest 91L. A lot of uncertainty about strength, but likely coming ashore Tuesday or Wednesday.

    It will land somewhere, but wife and I are so, so, SO tired of these storms. Don't like snow, but also don't like these storms and humidity. Since we are choosing to move back to Colorado, we will be saying "goodbye" to these storms. Yes, will have snowstorms and blizzards, but most everywhere has some kind of weather to put up with.

    Looks like the Florida panhandle. Current forecast is Category 2, but there is some thinking it could become a 3.

    They are saying that it could even come ashore as a category 4, and since there is an east wind, it could move the hurricane further to the west. Otherwise, it looks like right over top of Panama City if it continues straight north.

    Hurricane Michael is now a Category 4 and is expected to hit the Florida panhandle today at that Category. It's not looking good for the Florida panhandle and since I have 3 sisters and their families living in that area I am spending a lot of time in prayer for all of them these past few days.

    None of them left the area but they will be gathering together at my sister's home in Pensacola which they feel will be the safest place at this time.

    I don't like the Hurricane's that seem to come out of no where, form and intensify so quickly, and strike fast too. It's not a good scenario at all to me.

    This is the park by one of my sister's homes...these pictures were taken more than 13 hours ago.

    My nephew, the one we raised for several years as a child, lives in Panama Beach. He evacuated to Mississippi.

    He has a kid. Otherwise, I'm sure he would have stuck it out like a man.

    At this hour, Michael is moving towards I-75, although not likely to head towards Detroit... too skeered, imo.

    So a deep cold front is settling in on the heartland and will keep pushing Michael into the Carolinas and then supposedly strengthening before heading towards Portugal. It originally appeared Leslie would take on Portugal, but now is slated to continue wandering the Atlantic. While Leslie might not like the taste of Portuguese cuisine, it is possible Michael would like it. After all "Mikey will eat anything". (The models are mixed on Leslie, as some still have it crashing into Portugal about Sunday.)

    In a peculiar set of circumstances, my area will not receive any rain from remnants of Michael, but will likely get rain from remnants of Sergio. It will be a very cold rain, as temps this weekend might not get out of the 40s, with real snowflakes along the Ohio River. Btw, it was 82 today. I think summer is abruptly ending.

    My nephew is on his way back, with a trailer of supplies and a generator. His wife and child are still in Mississippi.

    Those who lived and made their living in Mexico City beach, FL are going to find they have very little to go back to for the most part. My sisters and their homes, etc. all weathered Hurricane Michael without any real damage to them or their property...they didn't even lose their electricity. The saving grace of this Hurricane was that even though it was such a strong force...it also moved very fast along the path it took once it hit land...places directly in it's path (like Mexico City beach) when it made land fall got the full force of 155 miles and hour winds and were basically demolished. As I watched that demolition last night I was just thankful there wasn't a bunch of people killed along with the destruction.

    I have yet to turn on the News this morning but when I do I hope Hurricane Michael will be just a whisper in the wind for the most part now.

    One of the tings that they were saying on the news is that the hurricane came ashore in the area of the Florida coast line that probably had the lowest number of larger cities, so it probably went through the area where it would cause the least overall damage.
    One of the things about the area where it did come through is that there are several military installations all located in that part of the Florida panhandle, and I have not heard much information about how these fared through the devastation from the hurricane that seemed to totally destroy everything that it went through.
