    Saying prayers for family in Florida

    My Dads brother and family are in Ft Meyers Florida. 14 people in the house with no electricity and my uncle said the roof is coming apart. I pray that Irma spares these poor folks, and I hope all our family and friends..... including Dan and Zorba and others in Florida remain safe. Hang tight guys!

    It's very bad over that way. May they come through this in one piece. I'm about 70 miles from the Florida west coast, so I'm hoping we don't get it too bad.

    For your family and all in Irma's path.

    Quite a few of us on here live in FLA and have, are getting or will get some impact from Irma one way or the other.

    I just choose not to advertise my exact location on public forums.

    Irma totally SUCKS.

    I really think anybody that's survived to this point is gonna make it through ok providing they don't do something stupid. One thing, don't go outside. Stay inside and don't go leaning into the wind like one of those idiot Weather Channel Dumbasses. A piece of tin on a neighbor's storage building could come loose and decapitate you. It's like a flying guillotine. Also, you don't have to stand on top of a downed hot powerline to get zapped like a bug zapper. Hot powerlines are another case where close counts like in Horseshoes, handgrenades, Body Odor and Atomic Bombs.The voltage is so high from a downed power line it will zap you several feet away. So stay inside. Don't go walking around even out in your yard. And another thing, somebody else brought this up in some thread, maybe this one. Snakes come out in this kind of weather when it's really wet and lots of water on the ground. So again, stay inside. There's a few really deadly hazards out there.

    Will add them to the prayer list with the rest our our friends on the path of this beast. May God keep them all safe!

    I know quite a few of the members along the path personally and will admit to being seriously stressed/concerned for them.

    Prayers for them all

    I'm working my last 4 midnights at the power plant. Not much more than a stiff breeze in Panama City. I don't think it will get much worse

    They say the strongest winds should hit us around 4 AM.

    My Brother and his wife are in Port Charlotte..elected to stay because they are pretty much the only folks in their condo fit enough to care for the residents too old to evacuate....
