    Kevin,

    I'm doing fine, overall. I've been in contact with everyone in my immediate family today and all are safe. One of my daughters is w/o power just west of Orlando, but is with my brother and parents.

    We got a bit of wind today, but I doubt it even met the minimum criteria to be in the tropical storm category. It has been blowing all day, though.

    I almost feel guilty that we didn't get it worse than we did, but then I say "what am i thinkin'?" to myself. I will say that as bad as it was in the SW part of the state, it could have much worse. I just feel really bad for those folks and what they are going through for now and the immediate future.

    Hopefully, we'll hear from Rich soon.

    Wayne

Generators are definitely nice to have... hope you never have to use one. Stay safe folks, the ride is just beginning.

    How are you doing over on the First Coast? The talk is of a flooded Jacksonville.
