However, this storm is coming right for the Tampa area and that surge is going to wreak havock.

I will take a photo of "Outlaw" tomorrow to show everyone how I've got it "tethered" to two tree trunks. Three covers on it tied down with both rope and bungee cords, dock lines tied to tree trunks, boat chained and roped to the trailer to hopefully keep it on somewhat straight should it start floating, imagine if it comes down cross-assed on the trailer? Chit, what a problem that'd be. Have two concrete blocks on the trailer tongue for extra tongue weight to help steady the bow, every wheel chocked both sides, and more rope on everything. This ain't fun.

It was insane today coming home from work - lines 6 deep for gas, ATM machines all out of $$, bank lines huge, etc....

Rags, if you read this, DON'T leave the top down while you're driving tomorrow It's a sure thing you're gonna get wet

Hope everyone in the path stays safe and property remains intact. Today is the one day, since I moved to Florida, that I'm glad I DON'T live on the beach.
