@Smokin Joe they seem to like me so far.  Had a huge cookout for them yesterday at the park.


@Freya thank you.
Glad to hear it! Having a sudden influx of relatives can be trying on a good day, especially a crowd (that depends on the relatives, too).  I hope all continues to be harmonious, and enjoy!

All seems well so far but a few Floridians remain to be heard from.  Hopefully due to lack of power only.

I found this interesting. I don't remember seeing this for other storms.

So far so good.  A couple of the younger kids were a little upset and not handling it well...but I think running around in the park yesterday and eating some chicken and burgers calmed them down a little.

Wondering why the networks, etc., are so lazy....they keep showing the circular animated icon as if 'IRMA' was still a hurricane even in Northern Alabama.  They just refuse to pack up an leave.

It's more like an old-fashioned Nor-Easter now, in terms of wind direction/speed.

No damage here.  Been out of power since around 5:30 this morning, but genny is up and running the fridge and freezer.  Ended up with about 10.5" rain total between yesterday and today.  Still overcast and blustery, but nothing horrible.

My new girlfriend has 5 kids 5 to 14. I love kids but I'm real glad she wants to keep her place for now. The younger 4 are mostly fine with coming here but the 14 year old girl hates everyone and everything and its all my fault. The oldest one did like me for a little while yesterday because I paid for her and a friend to go see "IT" and talked her mom into letting her go.

I'm real glad I ordered my lumber, doors and windows last month. When I called Lowes for delivery they told me that the prices were shooting up due to the hurricanes. What cost $2500 two weeks ago is over $3000 now. It helps that I got an 11% rebate which pays for my new garage door and I got a contractor discount for ordering it all at once.

Still waiting for word that the guy that was streaming from Marathon Florida is ok. Haven't heard from him since the storm.

The winds were pretty strong down there and the storm surge too.    Well keep praying for everyone down there.

Aye.

The two kids that are at my place are the ones that seem to be the most level headed of the bunch.  4th and 6th grade.  I think I've managed to turn the boy into a Cowboys fan to boot! :)

Glad you were able to get the discount.  Makes me extremely mad that they raise the prices like that though to take advantage of the hurricane.

Run 'em till they are hungry, feed 'em and let them run till they zonk. They'll be fine. Little ones get more rattled when their routine is disrupted than they let on, but they adapt fast if the adults handle it in stride and don't make a big deal of things.

I talked to a guy yesterday who works at a plywood plant.  Because of the weather and infrastructure damage, they can't get trees.  Supply is limited.
