How goes it? Heard it may be some time before power is restored.
I have power ,the city grid is facing issues. Miami and the south of me have longer .I stand corrected
Im south ,way south of them.but I have been there and know some of those areas.I crossed thar shands bridge for the last time this year going to blanding.
This is not far from me .probably the canal extending from south relief to the county line .this is causing a problem they are washing the salt off the wiring jacks
I totally forgot about the salt you mentioned before.
Im just not used to thinking "salt".
Yeah, it would be everywhere, in everything water can reach.
A friend lives in Mims, FLorida. This was her first Hurricane and they were not ordered to evacuate,so they didn't. SHe has said "NEVER AGAIN, will I stay here for something like this..." Their power is already on as well.
Lol,I 100 miles south of mims.this wasn't that bad.if it was a direct hit I over us.i.might not have been alive.Matthew 's eye remember was 20 miles east of me and we got less damage .
I've been through tropical storms before, when I was a kid. I don't remember being scared back then, not sure if they just weren't as intense or if it was just because I was a kid. Also back then we had a generator. Even though you're not supposed to run them during storms we had to because of my dad's medical needs.
Evac to a shelter
My mom wss apparently telling my cousin how terrified I was and my cousin responded by saying anxiety runs in our family. I don't think I have an anxiety disorder though, I get anxious and scare easily, but it doesn't affect my life significantly or keep me from doing things. And it's normal too be anxious in something like a hurricane.
I remember we talked about that back then. I don't know what influenced them to decide staying home was the better choice. It's in the past now, anyway, and not a worry anymore.
I hear Jacksonville got hit pretty hard. My city is still cleaning up, Irma definitely did worse damage than Matthew did.
We're under an order to limit water use to avoid the sewer backing up into homes, but people don't seem to be listening very well. They're getting their cars washed and everything I'm here having a moral dilemma over whether I should take a bath and wash my hands when I have hand sanitizer and they're just like "nope, car wash time".
Washing cars doesn't drain into the sewer grid ,not even at some car washes.
I have family down there. Prayed for them. The hurricane made a turn before reaching them, so their lives and property remained untouched. Thanking God for that.
All but west of Tallahassee was affected .we haven't talked about miami, the keys nor Naples, Marco Island .
Sometime built a snowman out of the trash downtown. I wish I could post the picture i have of it.
