    powerful Cat4 Hurricane Jose is a bit deformed this afternoon
    due dryer air, windshear and also due counter currents from Irma on it's W and NW.
    so that bugger send's all it's stuff on a very long Tail southwards.
    those are the light gusts we feel here in Punta Cana today, sun and clouds are changing, weather feels "rare" today.
    despite all those unusual conditions Jose is not struggling til now not a little bit.
    the fueling machine runs perfectly.

    Anybody familiar with the area?
    I lived there for a long time. That's definitely the Brickell Ave area on Biscayne Bay and it appears to be looking up the Miami River(?).

    I personally thought the network coverage of 'Harvey' was over the top and sensationalized and said so at the time, then, Houston flooded and I had to say I was wrong. You Mike, stay pretty close to the facts as you are able to ascertain them, IMO. Well done.

    I hadn't read the Dr1 forums in years, but when Irma showed up I knew where to come, you are a great contributor Mike as well as all the other long time contributors who told the actual story of Irma's reality as it impacted the DR.

    Hey Bruce, very long time no read, yeah.
    honestly, Wyoming is a piece of paradise for this Fisherman since a fairly young age,
    I will only turn 53 on the 18th of this months.
    I spent many many long times on Horseback up there(also in the wider 4 corners area),
    during a frame of about 6 years i did barely anything else than to be surrounded by horses somewhere in the US, mostly Wyoming. to spend a full week on highest elevations with nobody else than 3 horses and a good whiskey for the evenings, is Heaven itself to me.
    if WYO would border the Atlantic Ocean at one corner, it would be the full perfect place on the Planet to me, lol.
    wide land, very few people, many horses and widest areas without any car traffic(Shoshone Ntl for example).

    and I am very sure the name U-Turn-Jose(like we had for example Wrong way Lenny etc etc exceptionally turning/Heading Storms) will finally not be appropriate for this Hurricane Jose.
    Drunekn Circleing Jose should finally be more suitable,
    as this Jose should run in full circles up there til one day on the more further than nearer future it will run out of fuels.
    there is so far no end of it's life span in vicinity, it can stay active up there for an other week easily
    and despite the very far distance it could be a p.i.t.,azz to me by bring and keeping our Sea Conditions on above average levels for some days.

    the 11AM shot of today shows that the Highway keep's quiet some moistured lane wide open,
    the awaited Dry Air barrier did not move much southwards, hangs only over the nortehrn lanes.
    Steering Conditions for the Brewing Disturbance S of the Cape Verd Islands did not change,
    with or without Development it should wander steeply NW up to the Graveyard.

    anybody know on what "grounds" those high rises stand? solid Rock or is it something that could be washed out under there?

    It's mostly limestone. They have to drive deep pilings to make a foundation. The seawalls are put down deep under the bottom of the bay. I'd say zero chance that anything could be washed out there.

    2PM on Irma.
    Central Pressure and Forward Speed rising.
    that trend should continue, at least on the rising pressure, slowly but constantly,
    resulting in slow but constant loss of windpowers as the Storm is too close and soon over Land with the Eyewall.
    Tracking is a straight North and can be expected to stay that way til the next TouchDown.
