  1. I don’t criticize people for buying supplies. I have been through several BIG storms and hurricanes, including loosing our home and car in Andrew in S. FL. It’s an experience that takes several years to recover from because the homes and infrastructure of the community are gone.
    Yes – the weather people are overly dramatic but the flip side of the coin is some people stay when they should evacuate.
    The TLH is on the west side of Leon County. – those far to the east got more of the storm.
    Let’s do what we can to help those less fortunate.

  2. We dodged one to be sure. It was basically tropical storm level here locally. But of course the warming globes loonies told we were all gonna die… again. So like lemmings, many folks descended on the store and bought out water (?), beer (except Bud Lite), toilet paper, batteries, and gummy bears.

    Our power went out for just a couple of hours. Credit where due… the Utility trucks were rolling immediately after the high winds subsided. And our great Governor had every in the kept in the loop, EOC on top of it, and recovery plans prepared and ready to act. Oh… and I loved the “you loot, we shoot” warning.

    DeSantis will be a great President.

  3. That’s almost spot on with what was forecast. 🙂

    But even that’s enough to raise hell with local utilities. That’s the price we pay though for living in a heavily wooded area.
