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.

Good to hear, stay safe

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.
@DCPatriot

What icon do you mean? This symbol?

Makes me extremely mad that they raise the prices like that though to take advantage of the hurricane.

I hope you realize that their costs are increased, and the elevated price allows for greater supply to be obtained.

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

The looting in Miami yesterday makes my blood boil. Disgusting. My brother and his family are safe, as is my son. So relieved.

Still praying for you, sir.  Y'all got it a hell of a lot worse than we did.  I will be happy to just be out power for however long it is.

Thanks, we had a few surprises this weekend.  Found some personal stuff tucked away in closets we didn't think to save.  But we will be fine.  We were blessed with so much help this weekend.  And we are thinking about ways to improve the house as we rebuild. (do we really need that wall, this time the master bathroom gets a door!)

Still sending prayers as you rebuild. Glad to hear you have help.

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



Chris Planted (WMAL630am) played a clip of a NBC 'on-the-scene' weather reporter/lab rat saying that "Irma wasn't .......bad as we hoped!"

She's still a Tropical Storm.  The round icon will become an "L" when it drops to Depression level later today.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."

Ran all over looking Leesburg, VA today loolking for a small generator.   Figured I'd see what was in the stores, then research those models online.  I bought the ONE that I found. If I don't like it, I'm sure someone will be happy to buy it from me when I get home.  Electric company site shows 55% of its customers have power.

Ten minutes later the neighbor texts. Have power and no damage. 

Long, expensive trip the last couple days, but worth it. I made a few mistakes and learned from them.

That's painful to look at.  Especially the last one.

To bad Irma didn't take the Castro's with her as she passed by.

Right now I'd settle or the Cuban Castro's.  I'd really like to visit the country...but I refuse to put one Peso into the pockets of that regime.

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

From what I heard, the worst damage accompanied the eye wall between Key West and Marathon.  Big Pine Key was obliterated.  Roads are gouged by storm surge and bridges may be unsound.  They may have to evacuate people, as the infrastructure will take a LONG time to rebuild.
