« on: September 08, 2017, 05:05 PM »
Has anyone heard from Miles Ahead lately?? Us Florida folk are about to get hammered like a - storm-of-the-century - tent peg.

It has been a few days since he was last here. Hopefully it's because he's gotten himself somewhere safe.

My mother has a condo in the Florida Keys. The area has been evacuated.

It was a huge problem on the island of St. Maarten (an island governed by France and the Netherlands). Reporters mention 95% of the buildings is heavily damaged. If Irma has the same strength and behavior when it hits Florida, expect similar damage to whatever type of house you have in the Florida region.

I'm northern edge of central Florida, and the winds are already picking up quite a bit here with Irma still 200 miles south. Trees are creaking and cracking, and branches are already starting to fly.

I hope you make it through with minimal damage.  It seems that it's downgraded; hopefully it will continue that trend.

Still have some wind on the back side and the pool is full of branches, but we're here ... and the lights are still on.

Top 20' of a pine tree came out next to the house and buried onto the ground about 2' it only missed the roof by about 3 feet or it may have come through

Yeah, I heard about that one from my brother who'd seen it on FaceBook.. Freakin' people man ... Damn.

On a side note, the power is back on. Seems it decided to make me a liar and go out about 10 minutes after my previous post about it still being on..

Isn't that the way it always is?  Glad you weathered it decently well.

Thanks for asking about me.  I had electric and WiFi the whole time.  My butt is sore from sitting on tile for days.  I am happy the trains and associated elevators/escalators are getting back to normal. Things would be much simpler if I could rent storage nearby.  For it to do me any good it has to be accessible every day and close by.  I am not sure they will rent without a state ID though.  Makes it a struggle when it should nit have to be.

My hope is Maria will hook NW and go out to sea.

Glad you guys survived in style.  :)
