    These are the best webcams I can find for Key West. Since these are hosted on YouTube they have the best chance of staying accessible.

    Yeah. Yesterday they both had it coming close to the outer banks but staying offshore. Not going to bother with that one until it makes whatever loop its making.

    Irma as been tracking NNE for a good hour, won't take a whole lot more of this for it to leave the cone.

    I guess you stayed in Jacksonville? Has there been any flooding there? Any damage for you personally? Did you lose power? On the bright side (if there is one), you got the tropical storm version of Irma when they were projecting a cat 4-5 version in Jax at one time.

    This damn wind is killing my sleep. Times like these are the only time it sucks to live high up in the air. Stronger wins up here. Can't believe how many places closed up here in the upstate

    This is Duke Energy's update for the upstate:

    Strong winds associated with Hurricane Irma will impact portions of the Carolinas Service Area Monday and Monday night. A strong pressure gradient between Irma to our west and high pressure to our northeast will create increasing strong winds and wind gusts Monday into Monday night. In addition to the wind, the Carolinas can expected significant rainfall even though Irma is going to pass well west of the area. By Tuesday morning, 1-2" of rain is expected across the central Carolinas and 2-4" of rain is expected across the western Carolinas. Locally higher amounts are possible across far western Upstate SC and the southwestern NC mountains. The combination of wet soil and strong, gusty winds will result in significant power outages in the Carolinas Service Area, primarily across the Carolinas-West region.

    A high wind warning is in effect from now through 2am Tuesday for southwestern NC and western Upstate South Carolina, including the Greenville-Spartanburg metro area. Winds will continue to increase this morning becoming strong by afternoon. The strong winds will continue into the evening. Winds will be out of the northeast at 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 65 mph. Strong winds and saturated soils will lead to widespread to significant power outages in these areas. The strongest winds are expected from early this afternoon through tonight.

    A wind advisory is in effect for the NC foothills and central North and South Carolina, including the Charlotte metro area. Winds will increase Monday morning becoming strong by afternoon. The strong winds will continue into the evening. Winds will be out of the northeast at 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 55 mph. Strong winds will combine with increasingly saturated soils to result in widespread power outages in these areas. The strongest winds are expected from early this afternoon through tonight.

    A wind advisory is also in effect for north-central and northeastern SC as well as southeastern NC through 2am Tuesday. Winds will increase this morning, becoming easterly at 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 55 mph. Scattered to widespread power outages are expected in this area. The strongest winds are expected from late this morning through tonight.

    What? I try to sleep until lunch. Wind was making my windows make all kind of noises. My building was erected in the late 1800s so it's a tank but it makes noises

    Office closed today as well as school for the wife. Lots of rain here in Lexington County. Some wind but nothing severe so far. Pecan trees shedding small limbs like usual. That is about it. I think this may just be a big soaker here. A bunch of beagle hounds sprauled out on blankets in the kitchen floor. I am about to mix a drink and watch replayed college ball.

    Hope all is well where the rest of you gents are. Stay safe.

    And my prayers have been going out for them. Doesn't mean that it's impossible for something to also annoy me. What a joke. People are so fucking sensitive.

    Power just went out. I guess the wind has kicked up enough to put a limb over a line or cause a transformer breaker to trip. Hope it comes back on before my battery life runs out on my tablet and phone. Then I will be drinking booze and reading books by candle light I suppose.

    Lost power in Westminster around 5:30. Not getting much rain, just heavy wind. Saw a few snapped pine trees and a snapped flag pole on the way home.

    Should have updated. Power back on in about 2 hours. Co Op took care of business quickly. Very pleased. Still rain and a bit of wind but not bad.

    Yeah, stayed here. If you see pics of flooding in Jax it is most likely my neighborhood. No damage to our house personally (except some minor shit like fucked up fence) but we are still without power and have heard we will be for at least 3-4 more says.

    I live a block from the St. Johns River. Watching that storm surge was amazing. Unfortunately, several of my friends had their houses flooded, some significantly. One of my buddies probably had piece of 9-10 docks stacked up in his back yard. Most of my friends with docks lost them. Was texting one of my best friends last night (another Clemson dude) - he had just finished construction of his dock two weeks agao. He texted me back "80K just floated down the river."

    It was a Cat 1 when it hit but the storm surge was estimated as that of a Cat 3
