Hurricane Ian

 I'm trying to get a handle on (now) Hurricane Ian, but everyone else is too.  It's going to hit Florida as a strong hurricane, but no one is really sure where it's going to make landfall.

The thing about hurricanes is that they are so big.  Tropical force winds can stretch out 200 miles from edge to edge, and the exact point where the center of the eyewall crosses from ocean to land is kind of irrelevant. A big chunk of Florida is in the danger zone.  Storm surge is the real killer in storms like this, and the surge is always wort on the eastern side, and all of Florida is on the eastern side

I'll be praying for the folks in Florida.

That's about all we can do.
