    Hope you see this before you can't.
    OK. A little comic relief perhaps.

    You bet. Those things are made from a tough nylon. I have a large assortment I keep handy.
    You should be around the peak of the storm for your area by now.

    Power went out, I think I can expect it to stay out until Irma quits throwing a tantrum. My phone is nearly fully charged, but I'm going to go ahead and put ultra power saving on to preserve battery life. I'll see you when Irma leaves.

    OK Quest. Catch ya on the rebound. Stay put and inside. The wind is bad enough but the debris it carries can be dangerous. :helmet

    If you're a shop owner, can you shoot looters?

    Im.not sure .I know a few I can ask.I know unless it's life ,limb or arson ,and trespassing of public utilities , hospitals,and or emergency command centers ,jails the guard can't use lethal force.

    Usually in these situations the guard and police get the right to go door to door and take away everyones guns. The governments love it.

    If I'm a shop owner and someone wants to enter my store and I'm in it, I'd probably shoot them. Looters are scum. Taking advantage of someone's misfortune. Maybe use a shotgun with salt pellets. Both barrels.

    Poison tipped arrow. Right between the eyes. Then throw the body outside with a note: "I've got lots of arrows."
