I've got that live cam on my desktop that @Tula posted along w/some others. Amazing watching them!
I honestly don't know. My sister who has a place in Naples and a friend in Marco Island, sent it to me.
Thanks and I am going to keep it up as long as I can. Thanks for posting. I can't believe some of the nuts who were sitting on that back ledge waiting for the big waves to come up over them. Now the waves are coming to the upper deck! Oh my gosh it is so powerful!
Honestly, it was a pretty spot-on forecast even nearly a week ago. Models showed it make that sharp turn north, meteorologists made clear it could go north on either side of Florida. Pretty impressive forecasting that far in advance.
Apparently the wind I reported is actually a spin-off tornado.
Not an actual storm band.
Tornados during a hurricane are also common. Unfortunately.
Interesting article on the history of Florida.
The charm has completely worn off for me.
I retire next year and this place is for sale.
Sent this article to my Mom and Sister.
We're still in good shape. Eating dinner and watching college football.
My South Carolina Gamecocks are actually winning.
I feel like a death row inmate eating his last steak.
@ZEROPILOT I can't imagine what that must feel like. I hope you will still be joking tomorrow cuz that will mean you might be making it through this. I'm hoping for a stay of execution
@ZEROPILOT I wish you and everyone in its path to be safe.
I'm no longer in the path of the eyewall.
Just the storm.
Broward County is expecting cat 1 or cat 2 wind and rain. And Tornados.....
My sense of humor doesn't go away.
I've been inspecting my property and the pond in between bands of heavy wind and rain and noticed that the pond does not overflow in a way that would let the koi escape.
The rock ledge/wall is about 6" higher than the maximum water line. That is, the pond water overflows in between the rocks and cement work. Never getting near the actual top.
So unless the yard becomes a lake, they'll be fine. And this area is very unlikely to flood.
Looks like you will be able to ride this one out @ZEROPILOT
Yahoo ride em cowboy
It's already bucking.
It's morning time.
The storm is not far away now and it already looks like a battle zone outside.
The pond looks ok but the enclosure/patio is blowing away part by part.
The winds aren't THAT bad yet.
The patio roof is just very old
It's interesting here! I can't remember if I posted this here already or not -- but in the northern half of GA we have tons of evacuees. Now we are under a tropical storm warning. Widespread damage and power outages expected. There is no ocean to contend with, but I'm guessing some of the evacuees are wishing they'd picked a different place to go. Seems now that the center will turn into Alabama -- I don't know that that will mean here. There is an evacuee family renting a house in the neighborhood. The mom is pregnant and overdue! She is near the hospital, but the 'hood has many many giant old oaks. I told the friend who lives next to the house with the family -- google how to deliver a baby! They might not be able to go anywhere! Hang in there, ZERO! Hoping the worst of it misses you!
Watching it on different live video feeds. Looks like a lot of wind and water but not as bad as I thought it would look so far anyways. But then I have only seen certain areas. I don't see @ZEROPILOT posting anymore. I suppose he has lost internet.
Hoping he is ok.
@bagsmom hope all goes well up there for you and the people who went for safety there. Keep us posted.
