Our Storm Irma

My mom is in Jacksonville, Northern Florida. My brother is there and brought her up from Central Florida so she is safer.

Severely Ltd and Boss Mongo relocated from the Keys to safer places.

I hope all your family and friends are safe and will be safe.

    Friday was mom’s birthday. If this keeps up she will go to triple digits.

    Glad your mom is safe, Dime! I hope her next year’s birthday is not so soggy!
    Hoping everyone gets to higher ground, and Irma tires herself out quickly.

    All my relatives and friends got out of South Florida. One told me the nearest hotel he could book was in Chatanooga TN.

    Here’s hoping that the storm will prove less severe than predicted and that all are safe and sound.

    Dime, thank you for the updates in this post. Hope your family is safe and comfortable.

    I sent out some e-mails and I am waiting for answers.

    That storm surge is a thing you can’t ride out. 5 feet of water will destroy a lot.

    Naples will be hit hard.

    Severely Ltd has rode out the storm in the Carib and will know in a day or so about his business and house in the Keys.

    Talked to my Fire Fighter nephew in Central Florida, he is having a terrible morning. A friend died after she was coming home in a head-on with someone going into work. He has known the family for 11 years.

    10c very sorry to hear this.

  11. 10 Cents10 Cents says:

    It didn’t hit me about no electricity till now. I was thinking about no lights. In Florida the big thing is no air conditioning. Life can be unbearable without that. I hope my mom’s place will have electricity.

  12. 10 Cents10 Cents says:

    I heard on the news that my mom’s town mostly has electricity.

  13. PencilvaniaPencilvania says:

    *** whew!

  14. 10 Cents10 Cents says:

    Someone I know in Naples, Florida rode out the storm. The house is okay but the yard is gone. The friend’s mother went to Orlando and is okay. “No power little water and no mobile service …”

  15. 10 Cents10 Cents says:

    Record flooding in Jacksonville so this is why my mom is without power at my brother’s house.


  16. 10 Cents10 Cents says:

    Severely’s business on Islamorada looks good from a photo from the outside but does not know if he has water damage inside. He is still away.

    I asked him about the Socks and the Coins and he responded, “We left the socks and change outside, no sign of them.”

  17. 10 Cents10 Cents says:

    Boss Mongo and the Lovely Mrs Mongo are doing well in Orlando. They don’t know about their home in the Keys yet.

  18. 10 Cents10 Cents says:

    Mom has electricity in Jacksonville. She found out about her place in Central Florida. It is dry but an add-on to the building was destroyed. She told me the eye passed over her Central Florida place.

  19. PencilvaniaPencilvania says:

    Yeah, I saw a report on Fox this morning that said Lakeland was really hit hard, isn’t that where your mom was before going to your brother’s? My husband’s church just hired a new rector, he and his family are moving up here from a church right near the water in Naples Fl – miraculously (literally) the report is, a little water got in under the church doors but the building is fine!

      I am just going from what my mother said. Those towns down there are sprawling so she might have been in the good part of town.

      That is dedication on the part of the rector. Leaving paradise and all. Have you told him about winter yet?

  20. PencilvaniaPencilvania says:

    His 4 kids can’t wait to go sledding.

    (Episcopal priest, so married w 4 kids)

    My mom is back in Central Florida. Boss is heading back to the Keys. Severely Ltd has not been heard of lately.
