    I know we're not supposed to double post but wanted to tell you my family is back to semi normal. My post about conditions here is in the back porch.

    I hope everyone in the hurricane's path is ok.

    Got a verbal report this morning: No obvious structural damage. First floor took on some water, but it's not clear exactly how much. Perhaps as little as 6". Garage door got pushed in. Several feet of sand are piled around parts of the house. Should have some pictures later in the day.

    Nah, the above is good news compared to what we were thinking would happen. Also, we took just about all the real treasures with us when we headed north.

    Cool drone video showing the damage to the A1A in Flagler Beach -- worth watching full-screen.



    Other than the road, the damage to the town (11 miles south of me) is amazingly light.

    I hope you took all your vape stash! I was thinking earlier, holly cow if I had to pack all my stash and bug out I would have to get a water proof carrier/trunk to keep it all on for a grab and go type event.

    Yes, I got it all, except for some of the nic and flavorings in the dedicated 2.1 cu-ft freezer. I did take about half the nic, but left the rest because I didn't have a good way to package it all safely for travel (too few plastic ammo boxes!). Now mind you, what I had down there is only a portion of my total nic stash. You know what they say about keeping all your eggs in one basket. Also at this point, I believe what got left behind will be salvageable.

    For some reason, the weather is almost always beautiful shortly after a storm.

    Oh good! It should be ok even with electric out, so that is a relief!

    Amazing isn't it! We get affected by Pacific hurricane remnants, usually just the rain but sometimes the wind, but no ocean here to surge being it's the the desert. The clouds are always amazing to me since they are curricular from the hurricane/cyclone, but after it leaves is usually beautiful too :)

    It was a Chamber of Commerce weather day today :thumb:

    We're supposed to have lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s throughout the week, definately open window weather.
