Stay safe Mac
« on: Sep 26, 2022, 07:46 AM »
I was watching the weather channel and it looks like your heading for some tuff weather with that hurricane heading into your area.
Be careful, get up hill if you can and keep us posted

Glad to hear you’re heading for “safer” ground  ;)

Optimistically, you’ll get to test out the hurricane windows.

I hope you and yours and everyone in FL stays safe

Always a downside to living somewhere Mac. If it's not hurricanes, it's droughts, tornadoes, straight line winds, training thunderstorm flooding, ice storms, or earthquakes.

Stay safe and keep us posted.

We just got into the hotel.
It was bumper to bumper across Alligator Alley.
What is normally a 3 hr drive ended up being a 5 hr drive for us.
Now it’s looking like the eye will come right thru our area.  So the trip here was smart.
My brother and his wife stayed.
Their cats were their reason.
Dopes!!
I pray they come out of this ok.
My aunt stayed too.
I invited her to come with us but she refused.
I need to call her again and try to convince her to leave.


I have beer.
I have insurance, but prefer not using it of course.

Fingers crossed. I have two employees in the line of fire unfortunately, one of which is in Tampa.  Will have to see how things play out.

It’s hitting quite a bit south of Tampa.
Between Ft Meyers and Sarasota.  At least for now, that’s the projected path.  And because of this Tampa will escape the storm surge too.

Fingers crossed that everyone stays safe as Ian makes his way inland

Our place will be on the 9oclock side of the storm.
This means far less storm surge for our home.
Still crazy long term winds.
We are sitting here in Miami, drinking beer, and watching TWC.
Tomorrow, if we are allowed back home, should prove interesting.

On pins and needles to say the least.

BTW, my brother and his wife stayed.
I spoke to her about 11am and she was a mess - supper scared, but past the point where they could evac.
I sent her a text a few minutes ago and still haven't heard back from her yet.

My SIL just responded to my text.
The house next to theirs lost the entire roof.
Their rook is leaking in the LR a little bit.
Looks like we are on the backside of it.
But still have 4-6 more hours of heavy winds and rain.
