A massive Category 5 hurricane (Irma) is 300 miles east of the Antilles and is projected to effect, if not directly hit Florida, this weekend. Packing winds of 175 mph + this storm is extremely dangerous.


I sure hope it doesn't make it to the Gulf of Mexico and head toward the Texas/ Louisiana coastline.

Yeah we don't need another one! My dad just moved to Melbourne Florida last month,hope it doesn't mess with ya'll either. Idiots around here are hoarding gas making it hard for the stations to keep stock, and hindering people trying to get back to the ordinary.

The storm continues west north west and the key is if and when it turns north. Living in Broward County, I've seen flooding and wind damage from hurricanes and tropical storms, but can't imagine anything but "bad" if we get hit with 175 mph winds.

Lost electrical power on Sunday morning at 3:45 am. We just got service back this afternoon at 3:30 pm. We lucked out on the east coast. Damage was mostly trees broken and toppled on electrical lines. Florida has done a terrific job getting things worked on and restored. The Keys caught the brunt of the high wind, fast moving Irma. Minor damage to our house--very lucky. No damage to any of our vehicles. WE feel very
fortunate.

Still working on the clean-up around the house. Pretty exhausted overall, but happy the worst is over.

It's going to take more than a hurricane to get out of sanding that car. Get some fresh paper and get at er!

So glad to hear things were nothing like was was feared/predicted, Bill.

Bowties are for Pee-wee Herman. "Chevy": even the name sounds cheap, but not as cheap as your Pontiac will be with an LS transplant.
