I'm nearly hysterical with pain.

I have a sinus infection that's triggered a migraine and neither icepack nor meds have done anything.

And Amazon says they delivered my meds to the leasing office on Friday but the leasing office does not have my package. Ian said they seemed more willing to search when he said it was medicine.

I'm going to try and distract myself with this soulmate verse plot bunny I have where you only know it's your soulmate when you can actually orgasm.

It's weird and odd and I think the HP verse is best to explore it.

I've been really grumpy this weekend.

Sebastian peed in our closet also so that's four places he peed that's not a litter box in two days.

Since he's not my cat he's been banned from our room and I'm keeping the door shut.

Our cat is the only one allowed in.

And our AC is broken again...

So I've just been going around grumpy all weekend.

Argh cats.

Especially Basshole. My roommates eldest demonspawn.

He peed on my dirty clothes, he peed on the bathroom rug, and probably (could have been Boo or Mercat) peed underneath the box.

I wonder if the alligators in the pond are hungry? (Joke: I'd never hatm the little bastard... And I normally like him. Might even love him but.... Urgh.... CATS

I have a headache so I ended up reading true crime Wikipedia entries. I normally read the solved ones but I ended up reading the unsolved ones and now I can't seem to sleep...

And not just because of the ice pack on my neck.

I feel guilty. A sort of survivor's guilt.

Tampa had been phased to in the words of our mayor take a punch in the face and then Irma shifted course.

During the long night I was happy it stayed on land because the path when it stayed on the gulf before hitting us was the one that would have devastated us.

And then the path shifted. As our local paper said, "Irma staggered along the state like a drunken tourist."

And my section of Tampa was the only part still in the cone... And then even we weren't in the cone.


I was euphoric. It didn't hit us we we're safe, the eye didn't hit us.

Mum (mother in law) was in Georgia, parents were fine, mom was fine, brother was fine...

Then I saw the flooding, the destruction in Jacksonville, in parts of Orlando, in Charleston

And I feel guilty for anxiety fueled euphoria... And yet grateful my home was spared.

Mum's house may be damaged because the area where she lives was closer to the eye path when it was still cat 3 and some parts experienced flooding.

But as she's still in Georgia (leaving today at midday we won't know until later).

And the flooding isn't as bad as Jacksonville and Charleston.

We still have power here unlike most of Tampa. The path has shifted so it's more inland and my area is on the cones border.

I'm feeling better and might sleep soon.

Hopefully in the morning things still look nice.

I'm as prepared as we can be.

Path has shifted back towards Tampa and away from St. Pete which should reduce the winds slamming into us if she takes that path since the land will slow down.

My step mother showed once more that she has the emotional range of a teaspoon by yelling at me for being afraid. New Smyrna Beach where I grew up never took a direct hit.

We had winds and maybe tree damage but until I lived through Charley. I'd never experienced the complete destruction of a dead on hurricane.

So yeah. I'm afraid. Irma's a bitch of a storm.

But for now I'm going to pretend I'm a Yong Minerva McGonagall with balls of steel and no fear. Or perhaps Rose Tyler faces down Daleks

Interesting facts: The most accurate weather model they use is the European model based in Germany.

I'll update until the internet dies and/or the internet dies.

Irma's projected eye path is now going through St. Pete rather than going through us.

I don't know if that's good or bad for us. As the longer the bitch spends in the warm water the stronger she'll be.

She's also moving at six miles per hour.

Storm surge map for our area hasn't changed. Which I do find surprising at this point. I'd think it would be more. But I'm not complaining.

My computer is wrapped in plastic in case the upstairs window breaks.

We've commandeered the cat litter jugs we forget to throw out and filled them all for flushing.

I've filled containers full of water and frozen as many as I could. I've probably got two weeks worth of water.

Rolling blackouts are expected once the storm hits us more but the eye of the storm is not expected until tomorrow afternoonish.

Hopefully everyone else in Florida is keeping safe.

And remembers not to step in deep puddles as they could have power lines. My mom got electrocuted in 2005 that way. She's alive but her memories are shot.

Irma now shows it hitting the gulf and then slamming into us as a cat 3.

Before we were getting the better part of the eye.

Now we are getting the dirty half.

I wish we could leave or time travel to when this storm was over.
