    Yeah, get the fuck out of there as quickly as you can.

    Thanks guys. I work at a grocery store, so I'm gonna stockpile some stuff in the back and buy it just before close after the crowds have left (we were already sold out of a lot of things when I went in yesterday, but we've got a double load coming in today to accommodate, so hopefully I should be good there), and see if I can't get some gas on the way home (all of the stations on my way home were empty already when I got off yesterday). I'm keeping an eye on things, though. If I have to leave, I already plan on taking backroads the way up, which is how I usually travel anyways, and see if I can't avoid some of the traffic that way.

    Honestly, I'd like to just leave now, just to be sure, but I've gotta be at work, where I'm in a management position, and I'd really like to still have a job when I get back. :\

    Bonkers.

    Think about the most cutting edge technology today. And think about third world countries that don't have technology that we consider a commodity, phones, electricity, indoor plumbing.... Then think about countries like the US, and we fly planes through Hurricanes because we can. Bonkers.

    We are approaching the beginning of a new season of the Fantasy Movie League that is played in the Off-Topic Forum. We currently have space for new players if anyone would like to jump in. I can accommodate at least 2 new players.

    There is a long list of rules located in the first post of the Fantasy Movie League thread. But basically, your sole action would be to draft 9 films that will be released during the months of October-March that you think will make the most money at the box office (domestically).

    If you'd like to play, visit the Fantasy Movie League thread by September 12th (5:00 PST) and post something along the lines of "I'm in."
    Wind River (Sheridan, 2017) ****
    The Little Hours (Baena, 2017) **1/2
    Good Time (Safdie/Safdie, 2017) **
    Atomic Blonde (Leitch, 2017) ***
    Detroit (Bigelow, 2017) ****
    Dunkirk (Nolan, 2017) **1/2
    It Comes at Night (Shults, 2017) **
    Rough Night (Aniello, 2017) ***

    Hurricane Irma destroyed 95% of the buildings in Barbuda and now with Jose about to hit it, the entire island is being evacuated. I don't see how the state of Antigua and Barbuda can continue after this.

    This is good news, at least as it concerns Irma. Means it's actually de-powering a little, and hopefully that'll continue. Shit's been a high Cat 5 for about a week now.

    Honestly don't know what's about to happen in southern Mexico. They're being hit by a tsunami and a hurricane simultaneously from both sides. Geez.

    It's likely going back to Category 5 by the time it hits Miami and the Keys. Looks like most other people know this, but where are you TGM? I assume Florida but where? Did you have to/decide to evacuate?

    To update, I am currently on the road heading northbound now. And I finally caught up with northbound traffic at that, as you can see by my posting here.

    Yup, made the decision as soon as I saw that last night. And of course work tried to make me feel bad about it, too. I hate my job. -_-

    Yeah, definitely feel a lot safer where I'm at now. Selfishly speaking though, now I'm just hoping I'll still have a home to go back to. :\

    Pasco County police have had to warn residents that shooting the hurricane won't stop it or change its course.

    Apparently it's a surprisingly widespread problem and has even gone viral with people posting "#SHOW IRMA WHO SHOT FIRST!"

    What the fuck, America?
