What? You’re nonsensical response is well, nonsensical.
The nonevent hyperventilating that you are oh so concerned about is a non-event.
The weather event that may or may not be a weather event that may or may not happen. Is well, a weather event that may or may not happen.
Your old Generac served you well for many years. Like losing an old friend.
Glad there is good news in PR from this storm season.

Thanks for the list !
(Great tagline !)
A generator is like a car in the islands.Its a must. Smart move.
The worlds biggest hydroelectric plant may go down in china in a few days at the Three Gorges Dam when it fails with over 60 nuke plants and 400 million at risk. So as big as this storm is it could always be worse.This storm however does appear to have a larger reach from the center.
I guess at Islamorada we would be at 34%.Once again we could track it if we had more buoys that actually worked. Not a big NOAA fan here.
Tropics alive with Storm, perhaps hurricane threat Bahamas Fri Fla Sat into Sun, then up the east coast after. System behind it mid and late week could approach, But most interesting, 2 more days and an aceless July in the Western Pacific
Scroll down to video at bottom of page made 4 days ago by Joe Bastardi regarding this storm:
There are about a half dozen buoys between Miami and the Dry Tortugas an extremely high use area. Thousands of boaters use this area and the buoys are down more than they are up.Right now we have a storm headed our way and there is no ocean data from Miami to Marathon an extremely important area. If all this was privatized we could have several dozen buoys in the region which is what is needed. If you look closer yo will see all kinds of info in florida Bay.That's just great except for the fact that you cant even get to half of them since the water is too shallow. Its a mess that needs to be straightened out
Summary Of 500 AM EDT...Information
About 100 MI...S of Ponce PR
About 160 MI...SE of Santo Domingo DR
Max Sustained Winds...60 MPH...
Movement:...NW at 21 MPH
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 415 miles.
That's a really big wind-field.
They just keep coming off Africa. Seems a bit early this year?
Hiya rodguy! Thanks for checking in. Isaias is a huge storm system with TS winds extending over 400 miles from the center. Hopefully, the tall mountains of Hispanola will take the punch out of the system. Agree that rapid forward speed is a good thing. Will keep watching.
In 2005, the "H" storm formed on August 3, and the "I" storm formed August 7. This year is notably ahead of the historic 2005 season schedule.
This hurricane season, forecasting is inhibited with lack of functioning buoys and a scarcity of ships reporting. We are limited to satellite loops and hurricane hunter flights for crucial info.
We had very heavy rains in the San Juan Metro Area beginning at 5:00 AM. We lost power for a couple hours, but thankfully it is back.
We’re now under a flash flood warning until 12:45. I went to check the office and there’s flooding here and there, but nothing too bad, at least in San Juan so far.
We’re fine in the city but worried about the folk up in the mountains.
For sure,once again thanks for all you do.400 miles is huge,i read somewhere in the discussion that its possible the eye stays offshore making re-development possible or even likely. But has we both know these things are subject to change like a democrat changes his mind(or what is left of it).In other words almost instantly.
