The good news, for Crew Istaboa anyway, is the storm seems to have turned east and away from Florida.
The Exumas look like they will be spared the total force of the storm, though it still is too early to tell.
The bad news is for the eastern Bahamas. e.g. Eleuthera, Long Island, the Abacos
They look to be in line for quite a blow.
Think good thoughts... pray... meditate... curse... what ever works for you, let's hope Irene goes east and out to sea.
