    MartinS

    Just had a text exchange with him and he is safe at a friend’s house well inland. He is hopeful the surge will not hit his home, but the winds are ferocious

    Statewide power outages.

    Hope all our friends in the path stay safe and check in as soon as possible. We care!

    Cheryl spoke to Jackie and all is well so far in Naples. My best friend Al lives in Ft. Lauderdale and wind + rain however all is well. My friend Lisa lives in Ocala and she is well with the hurricane moving to her east. However her sister is in the path. Will keep all posted. This sucks by the way

    Glad you heard from him. Travel is going to be non existent until debris gets cleared and roads get dry and open.

    . . . though not there, neighbors in Jacksonville advise that all is well in our neighborhood along the St. Johns River. One large tree down in the ‘hood, but didn’t hit anything.

    After a major flood at our house five years ago during Hurricane Irma, we installed an extensive drainage system around the house that seems to have worked “like a charm!” — grateful for that!

    My parents in Sarasota did well. They never lost power or cell but internet and cable went out in the height of the storm. Lots of debris in the yard but no trees down.

    All good in Sarasota for me. Some minor damage, but nothing that can't be repaired. Feeling thankful and blessed.

    Our part of SC, Bluffton, Hilton Head, neighboring Savannah, only couple inches of rain, lite winds, grateful to be spared, sad for all those in northern part of our state from Charleston up coast. And of course Florida.

    Good to hear. You were my west-FLA person who I hadn’t heard about.

    Thanks everyone for the concern and well wishes… Only thing I lost was sleep ! Damn lucky we were with the storm surge, but at someone else’s expense. Think how bad it could be, and then quadruple that thought.

    Just got power back today in Bonita Springs..we were far enough inland to get no water damage at our condo.
    It is just devastating to see the damage at neighboring Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel.

    Feeling anguish for friends and family devastated by this storm. Feeling grateful they are all safe. I am also hoping that the clean up and the recovery go smooth as can be for everyone.

    ..What martin Said......watching and waiting, then staying up for 2 nights to do what you can to limit damage......then the 3 days of clean up......still better than the poor people south of us...will be a year or two before Sanibel and Captiva are back to normal.

    My heart breaks for them. And all that was lost forever in Ft Meyers. Too sad.
