My parent's place is on Hutchinson Island right at the Fort Pierce inlet. Looks like they're going to take a direct hit.

I guess we're ready.
The rear of the house is boarded up and I'll do the front tomorrow. At least we can have some natural light for a little while.
Boat cover is tied down as best as possible. Truck is tucked in tight on the boat's port side and as close as I dare to the garage door.
Made on last run for "essentials".......more ice and a case of beer.

My daughter, her boyfriend, and grandson will be with us tomorrow night.
She has to work tomorrow. Disney will still be open as far as we know.

All we can do now is wait.

It took me 19 HOURS(thats right19) to get from home to Atl. It only took 7;45 to get there wed.

I think all 2.5 millions evacuees werein front of me on the highway.

The upside is I get to tear up Lanier this wknd. in the boat.

Glad you got back. It took us 5 hrs and 40 min. to get to Orlando. Drove back home today with no traffic. I WANNA GO BOATING!!!!!

I am sitting in my house in Jupiter, right on th Palm Beach Martin County line. Pretty nice day sunny for the most part. We are just waiting for Francis to come. I just drove back from my sisters house and not a car on the road. It looks like a ghost town with all the houses boarded up and nothing open. Kind of surreal

Just came inside at 10:35 pm and it's as crystal clear sky as imaginable.
Barely any wind at all. Hard to believe what is bearing down on us.

This storm keeps slowing down. And the time drags on.................

My sister live in Boca Raton. They are all boarded up. She lives just East of Powerline Rd.. I guess everyone along the coast was told to evacuate. She is a single mother and has had several neighbors help get things all closed up tight.
Good luck everyone. You all are in our prayers.

Greg,
Glad you made it back, I'll be out tomorrow, maybe for the last time as I might be selling the 41

For the rest of my friends in Florida, take care and GOD be with you if you decided to stay, I know I would.

Robert
