    Sally

    Praying for all of you on the coast and inland areas as Sally approaches. I guess at this point, it is only wishful thinking that the panels will be removed and the pier secured as much as possible before things get really bad in a few hours. Keep us posted as you can (and if safe to do so).

    If all I had to go by was the satellite IR view, I would say Sally is going between Perdido Key and Gulf Breeze. At least that would put us on the left side.

    BTW, radar shows an eye trying to form, and radar show the westward component of motion.

    Yep, it's gonna BLOW!
    Looks like a direct hit for the MS/AL line, that puts us on the East/Worst side.
    Gonna be a wicked ride!
    Everyone hold on tight!
    And please, don't do anything stupid.

    Well here we go, it's midnite on the Gulf Coast and Sally just got her panties into a wad and strengthened back to a 100mph Cat2, and finally formed a rough Eye approx 50 miles across.
    Anything along that Eye wall is gonna get the brunt of her b!tchiness.
    And it is also now pretty apparent the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach is dead center in her sights, along with Pensacola.
    Everybody along the beaches and South of I-10 there better have their insurance paid up!
    To all our locals down there, I hope y'all are out of town or in a reinforced building.
    I pray for your safety and homes.


    And it goes without saying... The Pier is going to a Heavyweight pounding tonight.
    I sure hope it's still standing and structurally sound come tomorrow evening.
