    Re: Hurricane Irma

    Just did a walk around the parking lot. Saw one tree down and luckily for the car in the handicapped spot, it missed the car. Lots of palm fronds down. There is one frond under the front tire of our truck. In the dark, the truck looks okay so far. Cable is out, so no TV. That's one of the reasons we have an antennea (SP?) at home.

    No, that was one of the things I wanted to get this year. That's one of the reasons we're in a hotel.

    Re: Hurricane Irma

    They come in very handy at times like this, I actually have 4 of them now , various sizes. The latest one I got is a 7kva diesel powered one, that powered our whole house ( aircons included) for over a week just recently when we lost power after Cyclone Debbie.
    We need power for our water, as we are on tank water and need the pump to supply to the house. We have solar hot water, so didn't really go without anything thanks to having that generator. The cyclone before that, we lost power for 14 days, and I only had 2 smaller generators and it was a bit of a pain, but we were still better off than some that didn't have one at all.

    Looks like we will be missing the brunt of the Irma blow here in Jacksonville. Last year, I ran my house on a generator for 7 days due to hurricane Matthew. It was good enough to run everything EXCEPT central air. I have a portable AC unit that did the job nicely for that time period. Generators are definitely nice to have... hope you never have to use one. Stay safe folks, the ride is just beginning.

    I didn't know about this site either. Nice one!

    To those in Hurricane Irma's path, please stay safe. That means don't do anything foolish to get great photos! It isn't worth the risk.

    Latest news - my neighbor called and one of our trees is down. He can't tell if it took down the screen room roof or if it's just leaning on it. Power has been out since 6am. Oh, our mailbox is no where to be found either.

    Still getting pounded by wind and rain, but we still have power at the hotel.
