    Glad to read you Gators seemed to make it okay.
    I saw some coverage of the Keys tonight. :(

    I'd take an EF5 tornado over a hurricane.
    Those cause total destruction, but generally in a compact area only spanning a few miles.
    Nothing is as crazy as those huge relentless hurricanes.

    Property is cleaned up, avocado tree is upright and I even mowed the lawn. More leaves than grass. lol Most of the street lights heading to work are still out and people are driving like ass hats. You can tell the newbies to hurricanes, they blow through lights, drive like the devil is chasing them, have no patience and look like zombies. The lower keys is like the Walking Dead. It is getting really bad in Key West I hear. No power, water, toilets don't work, lot of homeless. And just to the east of Key West where the eye hit the destruction is really bad. There were entire homes that were lifted from the ocean side and pushed by the tital surge over US1 and dropped on the gulf side.

    Being on the west side of Irma was definitely lucky. The lower keys are devastated. A friend that lives on Tavineer key got power back yesterday. Said it was an army of power workers down there. Still have not heard from a friend in Islaromada...............

    LOL Duc

    You know I kinda felt like that back in 2004. We got 2 direct hurricane hits in almost the exact same land fall 2 weeks apart. It was freaky, the eye centers were only about 1 mile from each other. The first one tore up a lot of crap here in Palm Beach and Martin counties. Lots of blue roof tarps. Then 2 weeks later the torn up shit got more torn up. It was a shit storm for a while. Had a couple of friends without power for a month.

    Dominica got a direct eye hit by a cat 5. As if Irma did not fuck them up enough. Can't imagine the horrors in that island chain this morning. PR is in trouble.
