I'm back. I'm ok, lots of deaths, flooding... Yep, I rode it out.. Lost lots of shingles, (new roof ordered) about 8" of water in the garage..

Just got electric back, been on generator since the storm.. It was BAD, real bad....

See below pic's, I'm on the neighbors network, no net/TV here yet... It sucks watching my FZ, on the CC, in the garage, garage flooding... Water got up to middle of the muffler(below the oil pan), watching my baby get potentially totaled.... But it made it...

About 1" of water in the house, patio under water. I duck taped my only slider and started bailing when the canal kept rising... Water was about 2" ABOVE the slider door frame (about 4" above my living area.). with the tape, lots of bailing, it stopped rising...

Been super busy fixing generators that folks neglect and / or have been under water. Need some new carpet, cabinets sucked up water, roof, boat canopy, washer and drier (tried getting them working, got the washer going but it started smoking from under the lid...

Neighbors were sucking gas from their boats (no fuel to be found as there was NO electric, ANYWHERE).. and suppling me. Also lots of BBQ they were cooking up so that was good.

More pic's to follow

I can't post any pic's, I barely have a signal from my neighbors... The water was about 4" ABOVE the bottom of my front door, as far as you could see, NO LAND, just water to the ft of the neighbors houses..

Thanks for the thoughts guys . And yes, phones are still down, no net/ TV (just rabbit ears and maybe 3 channels). A/C blower fan, (not hurricane related) took a dump. Should be fixed tomorrow..

Crap! So glad you're okay! One of the worst in the history of hurricanes. I've been in them more inland and can't imagine what you folks went through being near the water with the intensity of this one. It's going to take some time for these areas to recover. Thanks for pinging us Scott!

Brenda @lytehouse How is your son after this?
Where Scott lives there are all these canals that lead out to the ocean. I can't imagine the damage there. I'm trying his number now...... Fast busy signal.
I hope Scott's okay....
Thanks for asking Cliff. I mentioned that Steven and fiancé just moved to a new sub called Babcock Ranch, just north of Ft. Myers. 60 Minutes actually touched on their community on Sunday night about how they are self-sustained out there.
Happy to see Scott finally reply.....glad it wasn't worse for him.

I saw something about that community. They have a hardened electrical utility. Lots of solar panels. They suffered very little damage.
Scott said he might get electric and get his network today.

Babcock is way inland.. The closer to the shore, the harder the hit...
I didn't see the eye but it was very close... Winds about 130-140.. And it blew hard for about


Looking out my front door- Another 10" of gulf water yet to come in..
DSCN0561.JPG 5 HOURS as it was super slow (about 8 MPH)...


I do have electric and water, still no internet, TV and landline phone..

I'm in the garage right now using my neighbors signal to get on-line...

Washer and dryer ordered, part for the Zero turn mower ordered, got an e-mail in for the boat canopy folks... Making headway.. ;)
