Pack your collectibles, valuables, pets, etc., etc. and GET OUT OF VULNERABLE PARTS OF FLORIDA and head north--you might consider visiting Louis C or Ed U
and ride out Irma!

One of the latest Irma models has it clipping Florida, heading into the Gulf, and possibly targeting Texas again!

That would make Alpha Lee happy--they have already had 2 roofs blown off that old bank building.............of course probably nothing is left in there??? UPDATE: Alpha Lee has sold the bank building, so now worries there.

Stores in central FLA are running out of essentials and lines of the folks are very long. No more FLA regionals in Orlando--can one imagine a mart this time of year in the South!

I think Paul was going to his son's in TN for the Chattanooga show and would guess he stayed there.

I'll text him tomorrow to check in.

I hope Alpha Lee is OK as she is now on a walker--maybe she is staying with her daughter?

Ben

I emailed Paul a few days ago.

He is in Tennessee and is staying put until things calms down in Florida.

Howdy all! Thanks for thinking of us. Yes, we are in TN. Have been since March. Just talked to our neighbor and the only loss appears to be our electricity. We will stay a few more days to let the traffic disperse.

I just spoke with Alpha Lee and everything is fine--no damage, has electricity, went shopping, has food and shower, streets fine and just a few limbs broke in the yard!

Great news!

Great news indeed, Jon.

It is wonderful to hear that Alpha (and Sherry?) is doing so well after the hurricane and thank you for posting.
