I'm praying for everyone that will be in the Hurricane's path. Stay safe and prepare for the worst.

Irma hit Puerto Rico yesterday, and I hope our TSN members there are well.

We're waiting for Irma tonight in Miami.  The models were showing us getting a direct hit.  The latest models show the hurricane trending slightly  west.  If the models hold, we may be spared a direct hit.

Here's hoping the updated models are correct, Ricardo.

Only ever experienced "hurricane-like" winds in our great storm of 1987, but that was nothing compared to what's happening now.

Stay safe, everybody.

I'm just now starting to get steady rain and gusts, but it's nothing to be worried over.  We'll get flooding as high tide is around 1:00, but we flood all the time.  Even without hurricanes.

Sunday about noon I saw a convoy of more than 100 ComEd (power company) line trucks and support vehicles headed south on I 57 in Chicagoland. If you're without power down there...help is on the way!
I have friends just south of Tampa who elected to "ride it out". Received a text this morning saying it was a bad decision, they and their property survived but it was the most terrifying night of their lives.

We were lucky, nobody hurt, no damage to the house,  a neighbors tree did fall on our water tank and knocked it over breaking a few pipes and we are without power. Duke energy tells us we'll be back up Sunday night by midnight. Meanwhile they have been adding a fee for years and years to cover repairs in a situation like this but I  guarantee our rates will go up.

My thoughts and prayer go out to all affected if Florida with the storm, we went thru the same here in Texas and it's going to take years to recover from the damage.

Checking in from Fort Lauderdale.Lot's of downed trees, street signs some people have lost the roofs on there homes and lots of folks with no power.
It was very scary with winds coming through at 100 mph.I am very blessed as I have no damage to my home.Florida Power and light has done an amazing job
along with workers from other states in replacing blown transformers and getting folks power again.
Hope all my Floridian and Caribbean  TSN members and families are safe.

Monday night and still no power. We had someone from an out of state power company come survey things two days after and no sight of anyone since. We have lines still down and a pole that fell across the lines and is dangling along with the wire one street behind us. We are in a secluded area with only one way in and out that people who live nearby don't even know exists but Duke energy sure does. I know guys who work the field for both the energy and phone companies. Hard workers all, the ball has been dropped big time but not by those guys.

I'm sorry that too many of my fellow Floridans are still lacking power.  We lost power from Sunday through Thursday, and that was quite difficult.  The weariness grows exponentially each additional day one goes through without electricity.  Hang in there guys, and you remain in our thoughts.

Guys, remaining strong is key. Obviously not easy, but have faith in whatever gives you strength. We were out of the direct path of hurricane Sandy, and still had a downed tree and a section of roof shingles was ripped away. I can't imagine what you're going through.

Do any of you need men's clothing, shaving/grooming supplies? Let me know by PM.

My post is about Hurricane Harvey.


Here is a hawk which sought shelter in a taxi cab down in Houston.
