Thank you Mark...we are praying for a miracle but preparing for a disaster.
Hurricane Party going on right now, it's a good way to relieve stress and anxiety before tomorrow night. After that we are on our own.

Eye passed us around 2am.. finally got to bed around 3. We were very very fortunate to have only minimal tree damage and loss. So many folks have it much worse. Thank you everyone for all your support and kind words.ImageImageImage

We did OK. Have a few trees down and a lot of small stuff every where.
Never lost power but Comcast went out early and Don' t know when it will be back on.
Nothing like a hurricane in the middle of the night.

Great to hear y'all got by with minimal problems! Sure looked like it was going to be worse in your area.

To the Floridians,

Glad to hear that the damage was not as extensive as it could have been. The Caribbean islands that were affected are another matter. I have a friend living in St. Croix, USVI. She reports that the damage on the neighboring islands of St. John and St. Thomas is catastrophic, while damage on St. Croix was merely " very bad".

We were up early with chainsaws and tow ropes helping neighbors while many others in the community bitched about no free WiFi and no fast food open..And how dare the utilities not be on already despite millions of outages.

Glad to hear you all came through it OK. And, proud to hear you and your neighbors are already out there with chain saws and tow ropes. God bless you. My son works for GAF Roofing and he said the company has dedicated all four of its production plants to producing "Dade County Approved" shingles for the Florida rebuild. I bet the rest of the construction industry is gearing up likewise... Florida will repaired and back to normal soon.
