Miami Beach on Biscayne Bay. Neighbor says house is ok, no sign of flooding, still no power, not letting residents back until tomorrow. Lost a big avacodo tree.

Put the boat on the hard at Harbortown Marina, Merritt Island. Boat is ok. Harbortown still closed. Don't know how the floaters or docks made out.

Power back on here in Maitland. Long night as the storm moved through.

Found out that a fellow CPA I've known for years was electrocuted by a live wire in his yard in Winter Park today. Scary stuff.

Had some trees and debris blown in New Smyrna last night and this morning. The dock survived this year after finally getting fixed from Matthew.

Then tonight in Charleston everything flooded and my dock got trashed. Go figure I didn't even think Charleston was going to get hit hard but sure enough i got more damage there this year than last year in FL for Matthew.

We are here in Sarasota/Bradenton area and all good. We lucked out with the last hours turn more northern and Cuba taking a fair amount of strength out of her before turning North that morning.

Boat made it as well and thought the fence behind her was going to thrash the place. I also believe that the large Cat and RV on either side of me helped as well.

All is well here.

Parents house - next to the Martin County Golf Club & St Lucie River, lost power for 24 hours no damage.

Hobe Sound house - lost two trees and about 4 screens. No damage to the house never lost power.

Palm City house - lost a few pickets from the fence and never lost power.


We did the dumbest thing ever. Decided to leave Friday before the storm and exodus. Went to Kissimmee as my GF found a great deal on a 3 bedroom town home. Didn't realize they had a "no pet policy" which turned out in our favor as we decided to head back after the track update.

Side note, I laughed my ass off when my GF daughter tried to argue with the property manager and handed him a "support dog" certification for her mutt. He handed her the card back and said "those are $40 online and mean nothing".

Daughter & family in Port Charlotte; all OK. No damage other than some screen on the Lanai. They didn't haul the boat; stayed in her slip at the house. Was sure it would be gone, but no damage there either.

Power was out for 9 hours Monday. Lots of limbs and leaves all around. The storm surge at Folly and in downtown Charleston was pretty high. Cable out.

The water around the medical center in Charleston was about as high as it was with Hugo 28 years ago.

But things coming back to normal today.

Still no power but running stuff on generator. Been working 12 on and 12 off. Haven't seen the boat yet but initial report is that it did OK.

I hate cold showers

Sarasota county is ok, very little flooding. Most have water, about half have power.
My hotel is packed with ppl from LBK(no power or water) as well as a few families from Naples, who lost a lot.
We have been a high end shelter for the last few days.

Lost power, internet, and phones on Sunday morning. We just got it all back. The house had no damage, just some yard cleanup. Also the boat is fine.

We were so lucky!

Based on the Saturday forecast with the eye coming over our house (Hudson) we headed to Gainesville not expecting the house to be here when we returned.

The timing of the tide, the jog to the east and it weakening spared us. No damage to speak of and no flooding.

When I called my daughter and told her we had received a report that the house was ok I lost it. Felt bad for her.

So thankful, and at the same time heartbroken for those who did not fare as well.

No damage to the business. It just happened to be in the line too before it went east.

Damn we were lucky!

I agree. Going through Andrew just north of Homestead and seeing the forecast on Saturday, I was scared. The last 12hrs of the storm was changed for us here in Sarasota/Bradenton by Cuba and the jog to the the east/north a few hours before landfall. Thankful but also wish the best for those in her path that were south of us.

Your not the only one that was expecting the worse outcome from that beast.
I believe we were all a little more than just concerned.

We were spared, that's for sure.

I was out in the garage today and got to thinking how grateful I am the storm diverted it's path in the final moments and then a wave of sadness washed over me as I got to thinking of all the folks that didn't fare so well, lost everything they own or loved ones.

Very sobering moment.

We're one of the lucky ones to have the power back on as some won't see power until the 22nd.

If anybody in the Sarasota/Bradenton area that got blasted and needs help what so ever, fell free to give me a shout.
I'd be more than happy to help out any way I can.

John
