Looks like a solid Category 4 Hurricane when it hits the coast.

This is a scary storm. I was in FL during Matthew, which was not only weaker but also traveled north off the coast, and I remember the damage caused by that. Lots of down trees, power outages, road blockages, flooding, etc.

Irma is both stronger and projected to make a direct hit. Stay safe, everyone.

Yeah, Matthew was a baby.  Never even lost power, and played golf 2 days later.

This one worries me a bit...

I've seen photos of St John, USVI, an island I am very familiar with. They didn't get a direct hit but are devastated. This storm is extremely dangerous. Stay safe. Houses and cars can be replaced, lives cannot.

Here's hoping the impact remaining is less than they're projecting. Stay safe.

To all impacted: drop a note here when things get calm again to let us know how you and your neighborhoods fared.

Til then, you'll all be in our thoughts and prayers as you tend to your family, friends, neighbors, and belongings. Good luck!

Yeah. It's looking pretty ugly. I flew back down from Ohio Thursday to secure the house. I've prepped as much as I can. Stay safe everyone!

Stock up on non-perishable food items my ass...

Seared sea scallops (those 3 weigh in at over 1/2 lb), nicely rare ribeye with butter poached sweet peppers, salad, and and a nice Napa Cab.  :-)

Exactly!  We have plenty of non perishables, but those are for after if we don't have power.  Right now we are eating well and enjoying a little wine.  If SHTF I still have two NY Strips and a filet from Allen Brothers to cook up on the charcoal grill (among other things).  Good luck out your way.

Ok, Irma has turned toward you from what I see. Irma wants some of that ribeye. She also doesn't like your taunting apparently.

Let's hope she loses steam as she moves inland.

    • Lol. Well if you don’t want to reach your potential then you’re exactly right. So If by realistic you mean what you’re willing to work on, then yes. And I’m not knocking that at all. I personally have never taken up a sport with the goal to be as mediocre as possible but I’ve known those who are happy to just play regardless of how they do. 
    • Greetings, I thought I'd circle back on this topic and let everyone know that I've decided to stick with my current coach.  My current coach has really taken me a long way. Not only that, but I think it's "easier" (is that the right word) to stick with one voice. I hit the ball brilliantly on the range the last couple weeks before getting injured, but it didn't translate to the course (actually quite the opposite). I think some of that was due to me being kind of stuck between the two worlds. While injured I've been diving into my video and my swing was never better that it was while under his instruction. So, back to it.  Since I've been injured I haven't had a chance to work on much of anything new. However, he and I are putting together my plan for the next 6 months. We will use all my data including Arccos, as well as launch data from Trackman. Going to analyze weaknesses, firm up strengths and get to the plan. It should be a fun off season.  Thanks to all who responded to this thread.  One more thing: Really looking forward to getting back to the SuperSpeed training. 
    • Give it another 3-5 years and I might feel the same. Some tech within that umbrella is ready to go out and be a commercial success, but I've done enough work with some of the latest and greatest for machine learning algorithms to know I don't want it touching anything critical safety related just yet. Computer vision is something that many people have a pretty good handle on and there's fresh data coming in often enough that 1-3 missed detections aren't going to cause any noticeable affects. Machine learning is quite a bit more difficult and most practical applications using it are currently "stuck" in that 80-90% of the way there phase that's good enough to show real promise but not good enough to release to the public. Funny enough it's a lot easier to teach an AI to play a video game than it is to teach them to do something like control a temperature. It wasn't all that far off it turns out, the real number was 0.00029 compared to my estimate of 0.00039. The reason I said 3 trips per registered car on average is because while there are a lot of cars that sit (multiple cars for one driver, or the driver isn't using it that day) there are also plenty of cars that are moving all day possibly with multiple different drivers. Figured it probably averaged out somewhere in that 3-4 trips per car range and it looks like that's correct (since 4 trips per car would give a probability of 0.00028. 4 trips per car per day would've been the best guess it seems.
    • I will accept "easier" for many but for me both more realistic & easier!  + Why make things more difficult than they need be? 
    • This is a bad calculation because many people have more than 1 vehicle. For me, I have 3, two motorcycles and a car, and I don't think I have ever taken all 3 out in the same day, let alone 3 times each. A better metric would be 3x licensed drivers.
