Well the storm didn’t hit Orlando but we got stuck in Florida a couple extra days due to the TS flooding in Houston. Couldn’t fly home when airport is under water. Dodge one storm get involved in another sorta.

Well, in that case, I wish I had been there this week! :)

Glad I won't be there this week. It would be just like home. We have gotten 7 inches this week and 7 the week before. :grumpy:

Latest NHC Advisory has this storm off the coast.

Oh my. 40% probability of tropical storm force winds over Great Abaco Island in the Northern Bahamas, and parts of Grand Bahama Island as well. :( (the same islands hit by the worst of Hurricane Dorian)

Ismael FloresSep 13, 2019

but the real question is............... Will it hit Alabama?

With the 5 PM est update, it looks like it might move east. It might not hit Florida at all.

Brand addicts can breathe a sigh of relief as they have another hurricane to blame for the lack of crowds swarming SWGE. *PeOpLe ArE cAnCeLLiNg VaCaTiOnS!!!!!

We land at a MCO Sunday at 11:30. Hope the flight doesn’t get delayed. The parks I’m not worried about.

I agree, I would not want to weather sustained 45mph winds either. But those speeds, for a system that will be 50mi off the shore, and 90mi+ from WDW spells 0 impact on the parks. /slightly concerned for Vero Beach Resort, but only slightly.

I arrive at MCO at 11:41 AM on Sunday. It seems like I'm always worried about my flights. There's either a storm in Chicago, or a problem at the destination. I've been lucky many times. There have been times when O'hare shutdown, right after my flight took off. I hope my luck holds up again.

Ditto. Arriving at MCO at 8:35am. I'm not worried about the parks, more about my flight.

This means longer than usual rain, but you can still have parts of the day hot & sunny.

It’s Friday afternoon. They’ll get to it Monday.
