Taking the sage approach... We are treating this as if there is a 100% chance of direct impact to our area.
At best it will be a "Hurricane Drill"... at worst it would be "Paradise Lost" and catastrophic ruin to our insubstantial sea level peninsula.
Praying for the best, preparing for the worst, and joyfully embracing whatever does or doesn't come our way!
*Pinellas County (St Petersburg, Clearwater, Largo, etc) is the most densely populated (not a dumb joke) county in Florida with nearly 1 million people packed into 274 square miles of land. Thankfully we have a lot of boats!
