My power went out during the 80-90mph wind gusts. The little old termite ridden flat roof 1926 half house I rent was shaking but it survived.
Power surprisingly came back on after around 6 hours that night.
Having AC, light, and internet sure beats sitting in the dark staring at a candle.

Fences are bent over and trees are smaller now. A lot of cleanup to do in the 92 degree heat...
I'm still drinking charcoal filtered tap water I put in old beer bottles, pots, and whatever else would hold water. I don't know if they've said it's OK to drink the water yet or if there's a boil water notice going on.

I'm very glad the hurricane did not go up the east coast like they thought in the beginning. It's a real bummer for all the people in the keys and on the west coast of Florida. They got hammered really bad.

October and early November are the peak of hurricane season here... all we can do is hope no more of them this year.
