    Hey, All you Floridy Fellers....

    You either get out now or keep both ends down.

    Prayers for all our friends getting ready for the big windy.

    Thank you Rabbi. I've got the Storm Panels on and water and foods we need to make it for several days.

    Yeah, I hope that all goes well for everyone down that way. Sounds nasty.

    Just went through a pretty strong rain band. Several tornado sightings to the North of us.

    I'm at work, we always have televisions on at work. I'm watching live footage on The Weather Channel. Crazy weather anchormen standing in the streets of Miami. I think church is cancelled today, Seeking.

    DaniH You're probably fine.

    We're buttoned up and hunkered down. Have family & a friend with us since our home is up to code. The waiting is excruciating but we're okay. We're on the east coast and east side of the eye so staying alert for tornadoes.

    The FL Keys on the other hand ... are definitely not okay right now. Pray for them and the west coast where people are less prepared because they followed the GFS model although it looks like the Euro model is more accurate at this point.

    Heard that.

    Have relatives in Valrico high ground, so at least storm surge won't b an issue for them.

    But it's going to be a mess

    DaniH You're probably fine.

    We're still hours away and way to the east of the eye, and people here are already losing homes & roofs to tornadoes.

    Squee.

    I know where Seeking lives. Dani, are you comfortable telling your town?

    I've been texting with Seeking last few minutes. His power has been out for about 10 hours. He's at home. Obviously alive and well.

    I think perhaps I have never had such information on a storm before..it is good to know more in advance--- still I want to hear from our friends here as soon as it is possible.

    DaniH You're probably fine.

    We're in the Melbourne FL area. Still have power for now. Some flooding around the house but not to the house. Was texting Seeking earlier, they were okay. Haven't heard from him lately but they were out of the woods before us. We still have to deal with the eye passing east of us (supposed to go through Orlando) in the wee early AM hours. Been getting tornado warnings all night.

    Gonna try and get some sleep and be done with today and this storm. Foot's been hurting all evening ... over it.

    Thank you Dani. I pray for you all to get some sleep and also for protection from these elements. I will also concentrate prayer for your foot--

    Manny texted me at 11:20 Florida time. He was good. Dani posted on Facebook three hours earlier. Both have no power but are ok.

    Cloudwalker?

    Just got off the phone with Cloudwalker. He's ok and he even has power.
