    My family and I have started to prep for a potential evacuation. Anyone else in the potential path of Irma? Where are you guys/gals going?

    good luck to you guys, your state is going to get flooded and we are burning up here from wildfires, mother nature has lost her damn mind. How far south are you?

    We live 20 minutes south of Savannah, Ga. About a 500 yards from salt water. I just hope and pray it turns! We are staying in a cabin north of Atlanta if we have to evacuate.

    I was just talking about evacuations with a coworker, his mother in-law is in Florida down by Tampa. Her family is urging her if she can to get out and not wait too long. Good luck and stay safe man

    I'm just leaving the Orlando area today, headed home after a week long trip with family.

    The radio stations here are saying they might have to create a new storm category as this storm has the potential to be stronger than a category 5.

    It's supposed to hit southern Florida on Friday morning and who knows after that. I hope for everyone's sake here that it isn't as bad as they have been saying it will be.

    Yeah, my rig is covered in ash this morning. The house we moved from 2 years ago (only 15 miles away) is under a level 1 evacuation notice right now. Sad to say but the PNW could use a Irma right about now. Good luck to all you SE folks, stay safe!

    Feeling your pain, I used to live in South Florida. Not missing the Hurricanes one bit. Stay safe, this one looks like it's going to be a rough one.

    Well day 1 of clean up. My street is a river, and the roads look like war zones with downed trees and power lines. Even though the east did not get a direct hit, we still got 100+ winds yesterday. Luckily i am not in Miami it is underwater.

    :canada:Sure glad to know you made it through and happy to see it ease off as it moved up the coast. I'll have to phone my old shipmate in mid Florida this afternoon, and I hope I can get through to him. I'm pushing 85 now, and he is older than me, the old bugger!
    All the very best, Ted
