Hey guys - hope you're all doing well and surviving this storm safely.

It's 9:40AM and we're seeing sustained winds of 60+ and gusts to 80 in Palm City/Stuart.

We're hunkered down and shuttered up, the Cigarettes are in the warehouse, and although they say the worst is coming, I've got OSO, two hours of laptop battery and a Sprint wireless card so I'm good to go!

Hope to hear reports from all soon after the storm, best of luck.

Harry

I had to bail out the cover on the F20. It's dark, rainy, and cold.

Geez Cuda, Deb really seems to be neglecting her chores lately. I dont like to see ya work so hard, your not as young as you used to be.


Seriously though, be careful out there with that debris flying around.

You are 100% correct, she needs to carry her end of the log!

No worries about debris now, the wind has pretty much died.
My lab loves the weather, cold and wet!

We drove up to Orlando yesterday. We just talked to some people on our street. No one has power, boats ripped out from the docks, trees all over the place, it's a nightmare down there. I think 500,000 homes from Palm Beach to Miami are without power.
