We made it through the night!Looking back, staying in Orange Beach probably was not a real smart move.Can't see outside yet(still dark)but I know it's going to take the chainsaw to get the 'Cruiser out of the garage.The local TV station that we can barely pick-up with rabbit ears(!) is reporting unreal damage to Gulf Shores & Orange Beach.Generator is running the computer & now i'm gonna make a pot of coffee......Ricky

This thing looks like it is going to take it's time going up the coast. Looks like it is going to take some time doing loop d loops.

glad you came through it ok, when I read your post I was worried about you, how is your house did it have any damage. It is weird you guys are having so much bad weather in the south, in MI we have been experiencing the summer we never had. Good luck with the clean up

Donzidog,

If you do get out or hear anything could you please check on my Inlaws place? They live in Grand Key Riverside which is across the street from the Florabama and Phoenix 10. They are with me in Baton Rouge but are going crazy wondering about the house. In that subdivision they have a house on the water and its the to the left of the only vacant lot on the water. Kind of a yellowish green color. He also has a 32 Envision that was on a lift at the pier.

From what we could tell from the TV the eastern eye wall went right over their house. They are worried sick. I dont think the police will let them in for a few days to even check on it.

Glad to hear you're okay. From what I'm seeing on tv, it looks like things are rough along the panhandle.

Good luck everyone.

Glad to hear you made it. I was up on the roof last night making some more repairs/patches just in case Jeanne comes for a visit.
