You did get the loss/damage coverage on your rental car right?

It sucks but you might want to get the hell out of there yesterday.

Tennessee is going to be a lot safer than the beach. Plus if you drove down here and stay your car might get a saltwater bath. When the wind gets over 39 mph Fl. DOT will shut down all the bridges

If you donít leave early tomorrow you wonít make it out. Please find another place to stay. They will be evacuating you anyways probably first thing in the morning from the condo.

Reviewing the latest hurricane updates, I believe staying on the beach may not be the most favorable idea for a vacation. My son is employed by one of the largest style resort hotel on the beach and scheduled to work on Wed. Capacity is 98% as of tonight and he is expected to work under generator power if necessary to service guest that choose to stick it out.
Winds are predicted to exceed 39 mph on Wed preventing passage to cross bridge during his schedule shift. If predictions stay as is, my son will be serving drinks to his hurricane family party far away from the generator beach party. The "trapped servers" will be granted refuge in available remaining rooms and worked as needed till normal operations may resume once winds calm.
Be prepared and have fun, definitely a vacation you'll never to forget!

Remember, the government considers "barter" transactions as taxable. Did you pay the payroll tax on that?

Remember, this side of the storm most winds will be from the north. Unless it jogs left, think we should be good.

Last update from me. Since Michael made landfall the rain has stopped here. Winds are down, except for higher altitude winds. You can watch the clouds skipping by going to the WSW as the storm came ashore.

I did see a pair of falcons, or small hawks, working the neighborhood. Seen lots of hawks after Ivan in 2004. Natures way, they are quick to capitalize on any natural disaster.
