    We went to New Orleans with my family since my wife gets scared easily and the schools were closed anyway.. The drive was a pain with all the traffic, other than that we had a good time actually. The house is fine, just a few blown off bamboo and banana palm leafs. There are a couple of shingles on the ground, but they may be from my neighbor, will have to get up on the roof and look one of these days.

    all is good here, lost a bit of fence and just got power restored tonight at 6:30PM, we got lucky compared to alot of other folks in the state, the storm turned north slightly at the last moment, if it had stayed on course to go over the gulf more tampabay would have really got blasted worse for sure.

    first time i boarded up all my windows with plywood i got from Ken back in 2004, i saved it in case i needed it, well it worked just fine and dandy.

    once again Ken , thank you so much, you are a peach

    Hey Mark,
    Was that you cooking a can of beans? Those torches have many uses!

    Thanks fellas, for all the thoughts!

    There was no flooding in my neighborhood, the floods were mostly downtown and along the St. John's river, caused by the river surge combined with the rain.

    We did get a few shingles blown-off this time from the wind though, will have to repair that soon:

    I assume since Ken was there he already knows the answer.

    We were ok as well. No structural damage, just some fence repairs and screen repairs needed. Lost power Sunday around 5pm.. got power back on Tuesday night around 9pm. Internet service restored Thursday night. All other family members spread out among West Palm Beach, Clewiston, Lakeland, Orlando, Port St. Lucie, and St Pete / Indian Rocks Beach were all fine as well with varying duration of power outages that have all been restored now. I think I just have a couple local facebook friends that are still without power but overall we were very lucky it wasn't as bad as it could have been.
