    Good to hear, Pappy. Glad your power is back on, Manatee.

    Power just came back on here. It's been off since 3 pm Monday. In fairness to the power company guys, they could not have worked at all Monday night. Really strong winds lasted past midnight.

    My plastic shed, the kind you can get at Lowes, exploded and little parts all over the back yard. I was going to throw it away this winter anyway.
    Some of my neighbors did not make out quite so well as roof shingles were lost, causing leaks, and carports were torn apart. I imagine some homes will need to be replaced.
    I think I'll sleep a little better tonight.

    Im still in NY and have made some calls to at least cover the front with plastic until I can get down in Oct.
    Thank goodness Pappy. You must be so relieved.

    We are on high ground, so no evacuation needed.
    So pleased you are ok.

    A quick update. I called my go to guy yesterday morning and asked if he would check things over at my place. About four hours later, he called and said that the front was repaired, the roof was in good condition and the windows were all there, no breaks. Send me the bill Paul, I said. He said it's on me this time so you can rest easy and enjoy your trip back in Oct.
    This guy is top shelf in my book. I sure will see that he gets a nice gift certificate when I get back.

    My neighbor, to the right of me, didn't make out so well. They have a good size hole in their roof and it is leaking into their dining room. I'm sure the good people will see that it gets a tarp put over the roof. I think the fire dept tarps roofs if they are called.
    I'm just working here until a good fast-food job opens up.

    Just came home from shopping at 3 supermarkets. The cows must have evacuated, there was zero milk. Publix had 2 half gallons of GOAT milk.

    I'm not sure any more, my GPS blew away.

    Glad all my fellow Floridians are accounted for and in good shape!
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    It's really good to hear that things are not nearly as bad as they could have been, Pappy. We lucked out with it as well since it went west, but our east coast is overdue, and I think we'll all be greatly relieved when hurricane season is over.
