This will be it. My first hurricane encounter. (out of the state for dud Hermiene) I am ready to rumble. Car is tucked away, provisions are on hand (extra couple bottles of red) and the patio furniture is glued down. Hold on folks, be safe ALL.

Stay dry and safe. Hoping Matthew makes a hard right and heads back out to sea avoiding any more landfall.

If it goes hard right it will end up in the UK! At least by then it will be just a bit of a gale! I have just seen that some places had or may get 20 inches oof rain!
That is scary!
Hoods up, heads down guys and gals!

Stay safe there everyone.

Here's hoping there aren't too many pieces to pick up afterwards.

Mandatory evacuation of Amelia Island today. Everybody leaves...police, fire, 911 dispatch, all utilities shut off and bridges closed. No help available if you choose not to leave (no water, sewer or electricity either).

We were planning to leave on Saturday for a pre-planned vacation and were able to change our flight to leave yesterday. So, we're sitting here in Houston playing tourist until Saturday when we can resume the planned part of our vacation. Won't find out how we fared in the storm until we get back on the 17th (fingers crossed).

I would invite you all to my house to weather the storm, but we will have a full house of evacuees as it is!

Be safe and don't take unnecessary chances!

1 million without power

I just knew it........a Million people without power.......but not our fearless Jeff.......

"Hurricane Matthew battered the Florida coast this morning with powerful winds, potentially devastating storm surges and torrential rain, leaving nearly 1 million without power as officials made last-minute appeals for any remaining holdouts to get out of harm's way."


I hope all you FL Guys and Girls doing alright thinking of you.
