    Our windows are covered, as best we can... other preparations are made. We have a generator and are in a non-evacuation zone.

    Local News - Bay News 9 - has up-to-date info

    Their Sky 9 Cameras in our area... and where they are from us
    • Carillon - 6 miles North
    • Albert Whitted Park - 3 Miles East
    • Madeira Beach - 9 miles West
    We are going for a walk, I'll post later.

    Thanks for the update Dee! If you're able to, please pop in here again to let us know you're okay. I have a friend who just moved to St. Pete's and she's staying put too. Be safe!! xoxo

    Thanks all!

    And Will do Catherine! We have remote start on our truck, the truck has WiFi connected to AT&T, figured as long as we aren't in a closet, we could do that. You might have to look at Facebook, though. I reopened my account for this :angry: storm.

    Couple pics from our last-minute items. Storm should roll through in the next day or so...

    So many places boarded-up.

    This store was open, so we picked up snacks, they were out of all batteries.

    Stay safe, Dee. My thoughts are with you and yours right now.

    Facebook was a godsend during Harvey, and now during the recovery process. It's been amazing to watch so many coming together to help those in need.

    Thank you so much. I truly appreciate it. My co-workers talked me out of evacuation. They are all "hunkering down"... I hope they were right. If we are spared this go-round, we will get appropriate shutters.

    The rain has begun... the storm may have wobbled, which might be a "good" thing.

    I am angry about some rain here on my vacation. But you all there in the storm may have really troubles. My best wishes goes to you all out there. Stay safe.

    Power went out about seven hours ago... under a Tropical Storm Warning. We were spared by the middle of Irma when it took a more Northerly path. Waiting for daylight now.

    Naples, right Tommy?

    Here, too. Darned neighbors to the East and North all have power. I think there is a line down a few houses away, and our new generator has a gas leak. I could really go for a cup of coffee. Wish I had the camp stove we had up north.

    I put a post on twitter to Lee County to see if there is a way to communicate.

    So far, so good... still no power, except for the extension cord we ran from the next door neighbor (thankfully).

    Here is an album (linked) I've thrown together on Google+ and will update as I have more. The first bunch are from about a six-block radius of our home. I am heading to work in about an hour. (Darn... they have power!)

    At least mostly fallen frees and debris and not too much damage to houses. Thankfully not as bad as it could have been. The Carribean looks in a right mess.

    My thoughts were with you and Floridians. Still hoping it's over now, not only for the moment. Fingers crossed and sending guardian angles over.
