According to Google, traffic clears up a bit after that.

But did anyone think of closing the southbound side and allowing northbound cars to use it?
yeah was wondering why they haven't done that yet

They asked the governor he said to dangerous, and not as many people were evacuated then...

It's a 500 mile+ stretch.

Also... I heard Georgia is accepting sunpass

It also looks like a boomerang and probably 100 different things to others.

A guy sees his new neighbor out in his backyard, so he decides to get acquainted. After introductions, he asks the new neighbor what he does for a living.

The new neighbor says, "I'm a professor." The first neigbhbor then asks, "Oh yeah, what do you teach?"

"Logic," the professor reponds.

"What is that?" the neighbor inquires.

"Well, let me see if I can give you an example...you have a dog, right?"

"Yeah, that's right," neighbor #1 responds.

"And you have children too, right?" says the professor.

"Wow, right again!" exclaims the neighbor.

"So, then you must be married and that would make you a heterosexual, right?'' proclaims the professor.

"Unbelievable, you're absolutely correct. How do you know all this about me?"

"Well," the professor says, "I observed there was a dog house in your backyard, so you must have a dog. I also saw bicycles next to your garage, so you must have children. And if you have children, you are probably married and if your married, you are most likely heterosexual... it was all logical!"

The next afternoon, the neighbor runs into his old friend. His friend asks if he has met the new neighbor. The man says that he met him yesterday.

"What's he like?"

"Well," the man says, "he's nice and he is a professor of logic."

"Oh," says the friend, "what's logic?"

"Maybe I can give you an example. Do you have a dog house?"

"Why, no, I do not," responds the friend.

"Well, then," proclaims the man, "you must be gay!"

Nothing about the hurricane like like a shofar. It's the cone of uncertainty that does. Is that significant?
If you don't care why would you comment?

Just so you get an idea of how big Irma is. And it's still growing...

driving. separately with their families.  they were able to get hosted by the Atlanta  community

For all those heading to ATL, please contact me directly. We have a system set up and hoping to accommodate all with housing. Up to 300 families that have not arranged on their own and counting.

Wow!  This is amazing!

Unfortunately, not everyone in Atlanta is displaying such friendship towards the evacuees:  Braves play 'Rock You Like A Hurricane' between innings in game with Marlins

What ever brings them closer to Hashem.

I would bet that the vast majority of hurricane cones have a similar shape since very few move perfectly straight.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

לא נבראו רעמים אלא לפשוט [ליישר] עקמומית שבלב" (ברכות נט, ע"א). מה זאת אומרת? וכיצד הלב מתעקם?

אנחנו נוטים לתת אמון רב בחוכמה האנושית ובהישגיה. ההתפתחות הטכנולוגית גורמת לנו לזרוח בגאווה כשאנחנו מביטים לאחור על 'הדורות הקודמים' (כמה מהם היו בסך הכל לפני עשור או שניים) שלא היה להם מחשב כף-יד ואינטרנט, שלא לדבר על כל פריצות הדרך הרפואיות החשובות. אבל לפעמים אנחנו נותנים יותר מדי אמון בחוכמה האנושית, ושוכחים שה' עדיין מנהל את העולם.

אם יש תחום בחיים שבו האדם אינו יכול לשלוט, גם לא לדמיין שהוא שולט, זה מזג האוויר. חשבתם פעם למה שידורי החדשות מבזבזים כל כך הרבה זמן ומייחסים כזאת חשיבות למזג האוויר? נראה לי שזה משום שמזג האוויר הוא אחד מתחומי החיים שמפחידים את האדם, אז אנחנו מוטרדים ממנו. אין ביכולתנו לעשות דבר כדי לבלום או לשנות את מזג האוויר. האדם נתון לחסדיו של מזג האוויר - מסופות הוריקן קטלניות, ועד לסתם גשם שמבטל את הפיקניק המתוכנן.
