    i have a smart phone. if i loose internet and power isn't gone to the local Verizon tower which i haven't a clue where that one is as the nearest is the one the covb grid and theres more then that on olso and or south county. so long as i have a tower i can post. my phone will be charged and i have a local support group using zello. we have already talked a few times with that.

    They'll keep power to the tower as long as possible I think.
    I know quite a few people who don't have smart phones.

    Anyway, in normal circumstances, if one has a phone but no carrier 911 will still work. Well, as long as it's charged.

    IS there some way you can use your fear to do something positive.. ? Under more normal scary things then this storm i can translate fear into super house cleaning ... is there some simple project you could direct your scared energy too?

    the other was I think yesterday and its a going to be out of date as far as the location but listen to senator nelson when he mentions the lake Okeechobee dike and also talks about biscane bay and also homestead. I have an aunt in that area and also a family friend. I might shoot him a text .

    I'm praying for you guys down there. I'm pretty sure that my ex-wife is in Tampa too. Regardless of past differences, I pray for her too.
