It's due south of me, heading north. Should be fun. I've been in Florida since '65. I'm not too impressed by hurricanes, as I'm smart enough not to live in a flood plain. :)

The lights should be going out soon. Guess I'll have to surf the web by candlelight. :rolleyes:


EDIT: Irma came up the center of the state. Being over land drained her power, so she wasn't very bad at all. She hit where I grew up, Polk County (30 miles east of Tampa) and we lost power for 24 hours. Try living with a disabled wife and two ADHD kids for 24 hours with no TV or video games and no air conditioning. *sob* Other than that, it was a piece of cake. ;)
