Our prayers and thoughts are with those that have survived Harvey and rebuilding their lives now in the aftermath.

Our prayers and thoughts are also with those in the path of Hurricanes Irma and Jose and Katie.

Please stay safe everyone!

From the Folks at WhoNA

Most of you know, I live in Florida. Current models are putting the eye right over my house Sunday evening, but somewhere between Cat 1 and 2. I am not staying home, because I live alone and there is no way I could handle that stress. I have food, water, flashlights, basically, everything I need. I was a Boy Scout, and yes, I get prepared every June. But still you worry if you will have a home or job come Monday afternoon. I am not in a flood area, so wind and tornadoes are my worry. The storm models keep moving west today, and east yesterday. We really don't know where this beast is going. These are the days I hate Florida.

Well, I am hunkered down at a friends house, waiting to see if Irma makes her turn north. I feel a bit better now that I am with friends, and we are boarded up. I have my Doctors with me just in case!

Irma down to a Cat 2 and still hours away. Keeping an eye out for tornadoes is a priority. It maybe down to a Cat 1 by the time she gets here, and that is very manageable. Fingers crossed!

Ron,

Are you back in touch with the outside world or is the power still out? I guess if you don't respond your power must still be out. Hoping you didn't end up too wet.

Yes, we came out very well. A lot of trees down. I spent a long time cutting some up that had fallen on roofs. I didn't loose power, but internet was iffy for a few days. No damage here, but friends and family further east had damage. No flooding in the area, except near some rivers. In fact, Tampa Bay was almost drained because of some weird thing with the winds before the storm arrived. Worst part is just trying to relax and sleep nights.
