The waiting is really starting to take it's toll on everyone's nerves. Just get it the hell over with.

I just caught a blurb on the news but apparently someone in a boat was reported missing off Tampa somewhere. Didn't catch much of it but I guess the CG is looking for them.

Just now say video of the four foot rollers running down the Intracoastal near Palm Beach, boats wrecked everywhere, on top of rocks, wedged under bridges, one looks like it got thrown up into a hotel. Many many more half sunk at the docks, beating themselves apart against them. One of those scenarios it's making me sick to watch yet I can't look away. Some boats have been thrown and blown up way past the water's edge. Unfrigginreal.....

When our cruise ship came by the Miami Beach Marina on Thursday AM, this cig was still sitting there on the lift...most of the other boats were gone. I sure hope it makes it through...actually, I hope everyone's boats make it through!!

Generally boats on lifts have a good chance of survival. I have some pics from Andrew that shows complete colapse of hi-n-dry storage and a boat on a lift right next door just sitting there unharmed. Hopefully they're above the storm serge.

Waiting to hear how my parents place on Hutchinson is doing. They're about 8' above high tide.

Actually, I just talked to my sister, Things are ok a Boca. There are a few trees down, no power right now and maybe 4-5" of rain. They had some pretty strong winds though the night but most everything stayed put.

Sounds like Jupitur up to Melborne got hit the worst.
Then even if the winds slow up to 70mph as it crosses the state, it's moving so slow, it will dessimate to Citrus crop. I feel bad for those guys.
