* Irma’s down to Cat 1, but the flooding is serious in Florida and there is extreme concern still about flooding/storm surges in South Georgia. The storm is slower, but still dangerous, so please, please, if you get an evacuation order, go.

* It’s looking like Hurricane Jose’s Cat 3 now and has veered to miss most of the islands, which, frankly, can’t take any more. They aren’t sure how Irma will continue to effect weather patterns, so it could circle out to see or it could hit the east Coast as of this writing.

* Today I successfully adulted the bureaucracy. I had two packets, one expected to be easy, but requiring me to be up to double checking legalize, hence me getting it the day my Uncle's letter arrived and setting it aside for the series of emergencies until I was more up to that sort of attention. The other I expected to be a week long scavenger hunt under pressure, hence me wanting it started tonight so I could go get paperwork in a gas efficient way from various offices. It turned out not to be necessary, as the second packet was not the week long scavenger hunt, but something way simpler, so both are squared away and out of my hair.

Tomorrow will be rough, as I've crack of dawn Doctor's appointment and a list of things to be handled, including taking Squirrel on an excursion and some phone calls I don't want to make. I am not sure what the spoon count will be, so I've mentally sorted into things I can put off and things I can't. At least the weather is staying September reasonable.

* A second Catagory 5 Hurricane is going to hit Barbuda, which is already leveled. They are trying to evacuate the whole island. I know we in the US are all about Irma right now, and for fuck's sake if you are in it's path listen to directions about evacuation vs. shelter in place, but a second hurricane in the leewards on top of the devastation.... I have no fucking words.

It's looking like there are a lot of scammers calling for donations. It sounds like the authorities in Antigua & Barbuda want people to go through the Red Cross right now, as what is needed is centralized relief through a legitimate charity.

If they have not told you to evacuate, but you are near the path, it is a good idea to make up a Go Bag just in case. Don't forget critical papers like your birth certificate.
