Guess you must be pretty anxious and busy right now, eh? Gonna be unforgettable. Hang tight! My daughter is in Sunrise and I have others all over Florida.
You definitely don't want to ride out a category four hurricane in a trailer home.You are going to get hammered with the rains, if not the winds O....just offset of the path----had to google - Branford
I texted Kerry's little brother who lives in a mobile-home outside Ft Meyers-and wasn't leaving, busting his chops for being an idiot....now I'm really a little worried about him. I had a gut feeling last night it was gonna punch in there. I know his whole Fam tried to get him to leave after I told Kerry that.
I read btwn Bonita beach and Sarasota they were looking for that 18' (possible) surge.....he may be floating in Georgia before he lands! He's a pretty capable guy like me so I can tease him, but I worry about him. I can't really bring it up to Kerry and make her worry more.....so I'm in holding till he hollers to someone in the family.
Hope anyone here is ok if their down there....it's not the water, most us can swim- it's the stuff in it, getting crushed btwn that stuff! You learn that real fast if you ever have to go get someone in that mess(those guys are superheros). I hope he does ok
I know what you mean by the beautiful refreshing gusts and wind. It's like an undercurrent with it's own mind. It's hard to describe but sometimes I recognize that type of air. Even as far as here in Ohio it can be felt here while one is headed for the gulfWhat people don't know because they don't live in HURRICANE areas is how calm and beautiful the weather is outside of the cone. It sucks up everything.
We have suspiciously blue skies here.
(At least we did until about an hour ago)
I sure hope that our Florida West Coast friends will be spared most of the brunt of Ian.
Yes. Especially inland from Fort MyersYesterday's rains and tornadoes have settled into a breezy and mostly rain free day today.
This storm has spared us. But I feel horrible being happy about that because the west coast is getting HAMMERED right now and they aren't set up to handle these things as well as we are.
Naples & Fort Myers & Fort Myers Beach, Punta Gorda & Port Charlotte. So much flooding. Cars & houses floating away. Amazing storm surge. Back end of the storm is pounding them.
I need to look at Branford see where it is.
Stay safe guys.
