    The elites will be pushing for more cash after the hurricanes. Climate change.

    Whoa. You're on my prayer list Sister.
    You know what I did? I realized that Psalm 91 is a most excellent prayer. Take a look...

    Looks like you had some heavy rain and more to come located at the southern part of Lake Okeechobee moving north.
    Going to be a long day.

    the home Is just one day later.neighbors have a lab. he loved the water and was running in it. he had a rain jacket on. I didn't have my camera to photo the fogginess is from the cooler temp to a muggy temp outside. once this storm passes to prevent this I will store my camera in the garage.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    that is going to be interesting after the storm to leave my yard in my trucks. the dirt road will be a mud hole for some time. time to pave this! I already pay ad valorem for those street lights, I signed that petition. pizza guy if I'm not mistaken I believe a smart meter antennae is visible in one photo.

    I didn't know that. Never been in Florida. Lived in NC for a while through Hurricane Hugo in '89. 115mph winds.
    That's about the furthest south I've been.
    Lived in Salt Lake City for 14 years. Was saved there in '98. Handed out pamphlets a couple blocks from the temple about Jesus with the Baptists during their convention. THAT was fun. lol

    You can build a home with a ba semester here but usually it's in a mound and the foundation with wall built into it and also a bilge pump is necessary. These are three stories.I think.I know a home that isn't like that,but has one.

    Widespread power outage last night but wasn't related to Irma, at least that's what they said. I stayed up all night listening to the wind and rain and trying not to panic. But I just scare easily, my mom and brother even went to church this morning.
