The west coast was pretty much unscathed and I imagine the east coast folks are still drying out.

Still fifty miles to the south of me. Two cups of coffee down just walked the yard perimeter with my brave dog (wimpy dog hasn't been out since 3:00 pm). Some minor limbs down in back yard, we are sticking to the "treeless" side of the house til it blows through.

Good call. Our Weeping Willow took a dive early this morning.

Safe travels making it back. I wouldn't rush it there's going to be a mad dash to get back to town I think. People have been evacuating since Tuesday as you know so three days of evacuees all trying to get back at the same time could suck.

Yep, we are sticking to back roads and expect some delays... may try to beat them by getting in late today if possible.

Hold on tight there , next few hours will be the peak.

Looks like 15" coming here with reports of a tornado downtown and just up the road from me. Hope they don't touch down.

Default Old Bahama Bay Report

From a friend:


Following is a PRILIMINARY REPORT as to the impact of Hurricane Matthew at West End at Old Bahama Bay:

· All of our employees and their families are okay.


· There is damage in the West End Village – but apparently not as bad as 10 years ago.



· The power poles and power lines from the Village to OBB are all down and need to be replaced. The new hurricane resistant main power lines from Freeport are being inspected at this time.



· Garvin has cleared the road to OBB from the Village of both vegetative and power line debris.



· The condominiums are essentially intact with some roof and soffit damage. Further, more detailed inspections are underway checking for any storm surge problems.



· Teasers has been severely damaged and will have to be rebuilt.



· The Dockside Grille and Front Office essentially intact. A more detailed inspection is underway.



· The marina and marina buildings are being inspected at this time.



· There is some damage to the back-of-the-house building housing our laundry and maintenance and housekeeping departments.



· Homes in the Isles have various degrees of damage. No report yet on Pine Island homes.



· There are erroneous reports being put out there by Blue Marlin Cove as to damage at West End and OBB.

I'm in Sanford FL, Middle East coast, 35 miles due north of the mouse!

I received extensive damage to both my property as well as my house and will need to call friends over to help clean up this mess

I easily have over 1000 leaves scattered all around my place...

Sure am glad the talking heads didn't over exaggerate this thunderstorm..

Good Grief!!!!!

They just had one clown on TWC saying, and I quote, "And when these trees fall down, they hit power lines and that's why the power goes out."
No shit, Sherlock!!

By 12:30 I realized Matthew wasn't gonna live up to the hype so I went to bed. The most exciting story I have is that I was watching my buddy's place and he left a straw hat laying on a concrete slab. Damn thing didn't move in 90 or so mph winds. Was in the same spot the next day.
Oh yea, and my power is still out.

We had a flower pot blow over and break. I'd post pics but it is pretty graphic. We will re-pot. We have been without power since 8:00 a.m. this morning and it is still out.

Neighbors had some down trees and braches but all in all, not too bad. We're about 100 miles from the coast.
