The east coast experienced little effects by comparison from Hurricane Dorian. I wrote, "Just waiting on Dorian. Not anxious. Although there is some concern as to the expected track as it pulls out of the Bahamas - finally, which is heartwrenching all on it own.
We aren't planning on evacuating (and didn't), even though we are near coastal Savannah. In fact, I am going to have to leave the weather station open in support of tower operations until late Wednesday night and re-open again early Thursday morning. Yep, that happened! I have been carefully watching the storm and following the non-dramatic weather gurus who give it to me straight, meteorologically, without bias or brass. I was comfortable with us staying - and slept like a baby.
But, man, it is seriously too early in the hurricane season to be dealing with hurricanes. It just is.
I am thankful we were spared.
I also have learned how to stay away from social media and find those scientists and meteorologists who are not in the business of gaining followers but providing sound meteorological reason without bias - or brass, so my decisions on staying or going are sound and sure, not uncomfortable nor fearful.
