    I was wondering if I could ask a question:
    Is it normal for the water in the bays to go out like that, I have only seen that with Tsunamis, truly amazing to see?

    East Orlando update. Wind gusts are still very strong, but the rain has eased up a lot. I’m just thankful that we didn’t loose power, still can’t believe it. The street lights keep going out, but only for a minute or two. Hope everyone is ok out there and staying safe. Hugs to all and I’ll update again in about a half hour or so. 👍

    Maggie, you are going to be OK. It could have been really bad, but everything has gone right for you. Tomorrow will just be a busy day of cleanup. Hang in there. In no time, you will be clear of all this.

      So true, just got a little scared there for a little while. Tomorrow we’ll help others who were not so fortunate with this storm and help our neighborhood clean up. There are a lot of elderly folks here , so checking on them is really important. 😃👍👍👍

    In Sanford, power lines on ground, debis all over the place. Quick look around at 3:45 AM, there’s at least as much junk on ground as we had with Charlie.
    Even though we are mikes from eye, we have had only 60’s steady wind. But it’s been like this since 9:00. Big, big gusts peppered in the mix. Still have a couple of hours to go.

    Impossible to sleep. Stuff bouncing off roof all night long. Tomorrow is going to be a very, very long day. Prayers to you guys closer to the center. Wind and rain is one thing. Wind and rain for hour after hour after hour is a whole different ballgame. This is my 6th storm. Will most likely be our worst due to duration.

    Rains have diminished. Lots of wind gusts whistling around pushing on doors and windows.Gusts are steady averaging 75mph. Fiinally lost power. Kept the pool from overflowing during the height of the storm. Did not know my house has so many creaks and groans. Tons of Tree branches. Everywhere. Tired. Praying for my Deplorables.

    I am looking at all to maps and models. A place called Ceder Key is going to get a bit wonky in a little while, but shouldn’t be too bad. Irma is really slowing down, starved for warm water. Florida Treepers, you are past the rough part. If you still have your roof over your head, and your floor is dry, you made it. Time to get some sleep, and tomorrow order the T-Shirt. 🙂

    I just watched video of some people who managed to save a manatee that had gotten beached in the storm. They managed to get it rolled onto a tarp and dragged out to water so it could swim away.

    Since it has gotten so quiet, I’ll give y’all an update from looking at the maps.

    Irma is sitting well off shore of Spring Hill (on the West Coast). West or Orlando Oakland to Bushnell to Polk City to Ocala are still seeing up to 40mph winds from the “drag in” of the East side. But, they will subside within the hour.

    Cedar Key looks like it could get uncomfortable about 7am, and Tallahassee about 2pm. But neither like S FL had to deal with.

    Y’all get some sleep. If you made it this far, you are safe.

    FOX News says 41 percent of Floridians are without power.


    • Just Scott says:

      Huh. Power is for wimps.
      OK, yeah, I am a wimp. That is why I have lots of big batteries and two 20KW generators.

      Actually, I doubt it will be that long before they have the power back up for most FL folks. They will need to clear the roads to get through, but they should have good weather, and they had enough warning to preposition new poles, transformers, etc. A day or two for most. I’d be more concerned about the looters and other bad elements.

      Now up here, in the winter, when we get hit and there is 5′ of snow to try to crawl through, we get hit with a week of power down.

    Upper level outflow and dynamics associated with the jet streak to Irma’s north are now dominating the system as the inner core evaporates approaching Jacksonville. Amazing to watch. Loop:

      Not to diminish the human toll from this force of nature but I am sure these little guys would agree.

          That’s what others said on the Twitter page.

          The hotel window only opens to 3.5″-4″ no larger than a baby’s head, assuming that the pressure outside would not have hampered the efforts. Not sure if the parrots would have taken to that or not, but what do you do with two panicked wild animals in your room?

          They do looked quite determined though don’t they. Like this pissed little guy during Harvey.

    so tell me why they have a dozen different models where the hurricane is heading a day before but can predict that human activity will change the climate in a century

    Thanks for all the prayers. We survived. House did too. The yard is another story. On the bright side, I will get plenty of exercise raking, bending, lifting hauling, repeat. Already filled 8 64-gallon containers. 25% done. On my way to a brand new beach body. Thanks Irma
