    It's now down to Cat 2. I still wouldn't want to be in the middle of it, but it's a lot less scary than what it could have been when it hit Florida.

    Videos over Abaco show appalling damage. Looks like Hiroshima. I fear the death toll will be huge. It will be like Puerto Rico in the aftermath. Long-term disaster.

    Wow! You can really see the damage from the front right quadrant of Dorian ... It hit the North Shore smack on.

    Meanwhile....

    In North Carolina, hurricanes did what scientists could not: Convince Republicans that climate change is real...

    It took a giant laurel oak puncturing her roof during Hurricane Florence last month for Margie White to consider that perhaps there was some truth to all the alarm bells over global warming.

    “I always thought climate change was a bunch of nonsense, but now I really do think it is happening,” said White, a 65-year-old Trump supporter, as she and her young grandson watched workers haul away downed trees and other debris lining the streets of her posh seaside neighborhood last week, just as Hurricane Michael made landfall 700 miles away in the Florida Panhandle.

    Much as I welcome the change of heart, just because a hurricane finally hit her doesn't mean much at all.

    The frequency and strength of them sure does though.

    Another yellow cross coming off Africa heading west. So far they have it going under the Carribean. But then what?

    OK, here's something to cheer you up:

    Headline and sub-hed: What If We Stopped Pretending?
    The climate apocalypse is coming. To prepare for it, we need to admit that we can’t prevent it.

    That is incredibly persuasive!!.. especially for people that have memories that only go back less than 10 years.

    Note to Winston Smith: please remove all news images and information of the 1938 NewEngland hurricane and the 1900 Galveston TX hurricane.
