    Have about 4-5 guys in the neighborhood getting to get together for a golf long drive comp in the middle of Barry. I believe one of the wives will be live streaming it also. Stay tuned bitches

    At most, it’s a CAT 1. As a Gulf South vet, this is merely a practice run for the real things.

    @gangsterkathryn@gangsterkathryn It is projected to hit me dead on though and I’m only about 20 miles inland.

    I know this entirely. Hopefully the season is calm, though.
    I’m about 6-7 miles inland. I think 2004 was the last storm that hit pretty dead on.

    Cat 1 can still knock out power for days.

    Rain will prob be the biggest problem.

    They cancelled my flight through Dallas. I'm having to go through Chicago.

    I'm heading back to the meth-hole (Florida) tomorrow. At least the streets will be clean.

    I know it's just an airport and you won't be outside, but be careful to not get shot in Chicago.

    Stray bullets can fly for miles.
    I'd stay away from windows, and if a nap is necessary I'd sleep in a kevlar blanket.

    What did you have for lunch while you were at the bar?

    NO was already flooding yesterday off one of the rain bands. The storm is moving further west towards us and Euro shows us getting 18” of rain right now. I’ll be flooded in for sure.

    I was there in the late 90s, heard they cleaned up downtown.

    Which was fine, when the wife and kids were planning on coming. But now the floods have them staying home, and I'm wishing for the old Bourbon Street.

    So we did the comp this morning around 10am. We're still here at 6pm and haven't even gotten any wind yet, even though we're in it's direct path. Slowest storm ever. Here's a few pics. Thought /r/golf would find this interesting, but pretty sure I lost karma. Reddit is weird.

    That subreddit is just fucking ass backwards. You post a pic of finding a Costco Kirkland ball and you get 1.6k ups. Post something funny like a driving competition to hit a telephone pole at 200yards in a hurricane and you go negative lol.

    I think reddit is just fucked. I don’t make posts, just read and rarely comment.
    Most of my shit is girl related and even they’re just as inept.

    I've been stealing memes from /r/dankmemes mostly. Started posting more golf stuff on a different forum and general fuckery over here
