If you were really here during Marilynn or Hugo -- I absolutely Doubt you could 'forget' them.

Of that, I have no doubt, Exit Zero.

poorthang: The science of forecasting has made a quantum leap since Hugo.

aussie: I promise you, if I haven't before, that actually living through a Hugo or a Marilyn is an experience that does not go away. No doubt, the abstract storm and the literal storm are very different.

155 MPH sustained winds at the 11PM advisory with 156 MPH winds needed for classification as a CAT 5. Aw, that's just cruel!

There is probably still time for you to get to Bermuda and see the pretty colors up close.

HA! Tell me more about the pretty colors, Yoda 😀

There's been a right bias in most of the tracking models this year. They attempt to turn these storms north too soon. Danielle, Earl, Fiona, and now Igor have all tracked well south and west of the official NHC track guidance.
