Ernesto moves northeast - central/east FL in sight

Looks like we're going to see alligators fly in the next few days. Ernesto changed paths and it seems to be going east/central Florida (though the cone of possibility pretty much covers the entire state).

I'm hoping it hits the Everglades, there would be minimum damage to civilians and infrastructure and there is significant resistance in the area to reduce hurricane winds -- the grass and swampy fields are natural flood barriers and have been known to weaken hurricanes damage significantly.

Due to the fact that the course of this hurricane could change within the last 12 hours of land fall, I still suggest everyone prepare for the worst if you live in the state. Board up, stock up, and pray!
