The latest Storm Track from https://stormpulse.com/ puts the track about 1-1/2 miles west of the house here. Now that is information I didn’t need to know. Glad these storms wobble because at 185 mph there would be nothing left here but the slab.
For what it’s worth we are paid up with The Neptune Society.
I started a “topic” at Goldismoney2.com last Sunday. All my posts are under the name “mayhem”. Lot’s of good comments there, and I thought you might be interested in following the discussion also. The web address is http://www.goldismoney2.com/threads/hurricane-irma-watch.155008/
This post will be stuck on the top for a few days. Newer posts will follow after until I unstick this post. So scroll down to check for anything newer for a few days.
Decided to re-open the site to keep anyone up to date on our condition here on a frequent basis as long as we have power and land line service. (DSL)
Currently the house is in the process of re-siding and is vulnerable to serious damage. I have people working on the project as fast as possible and from dawn to dusk. Are we concerned, heck yeah we are.
Hurricane Irma is right now the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic. It is going to hit Florida in the worst possible way, meaning south to north, so there is no where to go to be safe without leaving the state. We are well prepared, but that is no guarantee. Believe me a lot of people will die if and when this storm hits. All houses in Florida can pretty much fair well in winds up to 130 mph, some to 150. But at the numbers that this storm is generating 195-210 mph, everything is subject to fail.
