Best of luck. Stay safe if you can.

It was about a cat 2 when it went by Kissimmee and Orlando Florida. I lost power at 1159 pm, I got my power back at 1000 am (freaking amazing!), I had some street flooding (about foot and half deep) and tree branches but no power lines down in my neighborhood, nor any trees. I haven't bother getting out and drive around town, no sense getting in the way.

I hope DnE got as lucky.

Last I saw, he and Saskia were at a friend's house more inland. He did check in to say he survived but I have no idea when we'll get a report about the area he lives in.

Florence. Current path is to hit pretty much right here, so, that's fun. I'm sure it'll still mostly miss us, but have to be prepared I guess.

Relative good news, Florence has slow down to a cat 2 storm as of 1100 pm update. Of course, that only takes in the wind damage, it is also may slow down it forward speed, right now it is moving along at 17 mph

So Mikbuster and any others in the area, things are looking a little better for you … relativity.

Best use of computers to educate people as to why the winds are not your major concern when the stupid hurricane slows down.
