    Getting ugly here ,wind blowing like mad,rain coming down and it's supposed to get much worse tonight.
    AC is already flooded and most of the people in my area that are anywhere near the bay or in low-lying areas are under mandatory evacuation.

    Take it from someone who lives in Hurricane country: Don't be a hereo or a hold-out when it doesn't make good sense. Whatever is going to happen to your house won't be helped by beeing there.

    As were those of us on the other side of Hurricane alley! That's awesome that you already have phone and power. Living primitive gets old fast!

    You said it! Last one here left us with no power, and air conditioner over labor day weekend. Not a way you want to spend your holiday weekend or the week afterwards cleaning all of the trees and garbage out of your yard.

    Thanks again to you FL guys!

    Every day I see more destruction of places I know well from living here my whole life ,we've had bad storms in the past but I dont remember anything quite this bad .Yesterday I rode down to the bayfront section of my town to check on a friend who lives on a lagoon .Luckily his living areas are on the second level so the only area flooded out was his garage and his boat was banged around but survived. It's one big sea of mud and damage in that area ,my buddy,true to his nature was laughing and glad to see me with a bag of ice for him so they can have their scotches on the rocks.
    The police still wouldnt let me ride down to where the baitshop I used to work at is ,the only good thing is my buddy pulled out of there this season beacause the bank was foreclosing on the whole marina. I'd be surprised to see if it's still there ,it's the bank's problem now.God bless the rest of the people who lost everything ,homes businesses ,jobs and some even their lives
