How's the weather?


We are going boxless but we have a box? Ok.
Everything that we had DVRd is gone...no big deal. Guess we will have to start over.
But cable and internet is back...yippee!!!

Broken wire or a screw loose?
I have both.
Your wire is loose, and your screw is too tight..

Rain is gone (at least i hope), and the winds are dying down but we occasionally get a gust of well over 50 MPH. I think i can see what appears to maybe see the sun.

Ventured out to look at the damage....Moderate with some trees down, mild roof damage, flooding, etc.....I have two palm trees down, and just a lot of crap and garbage....and water.......others are much worse than i am.....Nothing in the range of Ivan from 2004, so we should be good to 2036. Still no power, but the generator is purring along and keeping the beer in the fridge cold.

The wine cellar had about 10" of water in it, which i finally got out with the shop vac. The pump may be bad, or the switch to the pump may have been turned off. Can't figure that out till the power comes back on. From what i can tell however, no damage and her wine is safe.

The run away barge heading toward the I-10 bridge ran a ground, which was good news, but we are going to have to use the Garcon Point bridge which goes up towards CNF's way to get into Pensacola.

Not sure of what damage has occurred on the Gulf front as of yet, and hoping my beach bar is safe........

Phone has been out of service all afternoon, no internet or TV, kinda nice. No major damage, some fence is down and my new gate is messed up. Shutters are removed and I can see the light! But the Generac is purring nicely and plenty to watch on the tivo. All is well.

We, for now, have a flight out tomorrow at 2pm with a layover (ironically) in Philly...

No, but I'm expecting the worst. Hurricane winds for 12 hours and over 5' storm surge probably destroyed the marina.
