Irma is going to make a real mess in Fl to say the least. Hopeful all you guys remain safe down there...whether you're staying or not!
BTW, I believe the "naming" system for hurricanes should be changed to more threatening names such as:
Grim-reaper 2017
Megadeath I
Armageddon II
Earthmover III
Freddy Kruger
Jeffrey Dahmer
Gingis Kahn


Maybe people would take evacuation warnings more seriously...

YES! He is weathering the storm. No power, but his beer is still cold. That's planning!

I believe his exact words were "Hurricane Schmuricane".

Our families are all safe with some moderate property damage. Cell towers are out. Fuel's in short supply. Family reports "terrifying" 140 mph gusts.

Safe in S-Jacksonville, FL. No power or internet, working on a generator for power.
No flooding in my home, but most areas have had flooding. The highest flood level since 1846!!!!! Irma is one of the most powerful storms ever.
PS: my father just lost power in NE-AL due to Irma.

Power back, yay.
Lots of trees and wires down.
But temps in the 60's, nice.
A few days to sort out debris and get fuel/supplies back
in town.


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

Florida Keys for now
Lost the house in the Keys but safe with little damage in Mims. No power, internet, and marginal cell. In the Keys cell totally nonexistent in the keys, no water, no medical, no fuel. USS Abraham Lincoln, USS Iwo Jima plus escorts inroute for support. US1 cut in two places but bridges are being inspected. Nobody who lives below Key Largo may enter the Keys and those only with restrictions. Don't know when we will head backAlready started with FEMA. Not much to do with other insurance until people can reach the keys. Just woke from a margarita induced nap. My generator will run a couple of window AC plus my well and one refer and I can manage other loads with the breaker panel. We are grilling outside so we are very set compared to those who stayed in the keys. Expect to have our power back by Saturday here but the utility company in the lower keys says it could take a month. 300 poles down. Best Wishes, Bill
