My father sold his winter summer house and was just about to head to his condo in Clearwater.

Some tracks I saw showed storm possibly nailing that place.

Hopefully everyone down there stays safe as possible and people don't lose everything.

What a nightmare of a trip but I am now safe and well rested in Tuscaloosa, AL. Of course while we slept, the predictions have it coming right this way

I've always heard that Alabama football was big around here but holy hell, these people are fanatic.

Also very friendly. We had two different people pull up next to us at stop lights and offer us a place to stay. Fortunately we made plans early.

And now it sounds like our place is under water. Don't know for sure yet but a place not far from ours has two feet of water in it.

We are praying for you and all those effected , hope you guys get back to normal very soon. Videos are surfacing on you tube with people looting , humans never fail to disappoint. Do people in Florida have the right to protect their property without being prosecuted ? Just sad

Some good news. My new place in Naples that I was just starting to move into survived. Still no word on Mom's place right on the gulf in Marco Island.

It don't matter what you believe in or don't beleave, you are a tool for assuming you are better than me cause finally for once in your life you did something to help others. Listen TOOL if you gotta tell the world how great you are because you advertise that you gave to help then you did it for your own personal reasons , so you can tell us all : " look ,look people I'm a great guy ,I donated .... praise me" how do you know who on here has donated for relief efforts and who has not ? You think I would come on a public thread and tell the world that I donated ? Clown ...that would make me look like and feel like what you are. Now stay off this thread cause you hijacked it enough.
