Glad I got here late. Was Fighting strong temptations myself, while wondering where Chris’s post was going to pop up. Big topic.Easy to fight about.
Irma is here. At least her water. Wind is starting. My family all survived her in FLorida. Pompano Beach, Ft Myers, Sarasota, St Pete, Tampa, Inverness, Tallahassee. They all got hit. The eye is heading directly at us at the moment. Later tonight we’re expecting the wind. But she has calmed down a lot being over land for so long. Shouldn’t be near as bad as the last hurricane we had to stray this far north into Alabama = Opal.
Kinda strange. Last week my wife’s family got hit in Houston TX. This week it’s my family in Florida. Funny thing is they were all heading here to escape until the storm turned toward us and then they headed to SOuth Carolina or back home. A lot of South Floridians were evacuating northward when the storm caught up with them and passed them up, so they turned around.
Wayne, I expect it will pass a little to the east of ya’ll. At least on that side you are a little safer from tornadoes. Right now they say it is vector-ed between Auburn and Gadsden through Anniston and my front yard. We’ll see what happens about midnight. I am expecting to be called up for rescue squad or fire dept.
