Yeah it's
Become
Comical at this point... I hope I have a home to go back to... my inlaws just told me that the insurance during construction only covers fire and vandalism... so none of this damage may be covered, none of our furniture or anything because we don't have homeowners insurance yet... I think I am gonna go throw up now

good luck, dude.

my daughter's in college in central Florida, everyone's freaking her out there, but I know she'll be fine as long as she just stays indoors in a secure place. It should "only" be a Cat 2 or 3 at that point.

My wife's sister and family live in Miami....as of now they're not leaving. I'm dumbfounded by that decision.

the latest projections have it swinging further west as it enters the state, so they should be ok in Miami, as of now, assuming they're not right on the water in a storm surge area.

also, as of now looks like it should only be a Cat 1 when it rolls through Gainesville, which is good.

The Keys look to be in trouble, though.

It's hard to sit here and even contemplate the changes that this storm is going to produce for my life... am I going to have a home? Are my inlaws going to have a home? Am I going to keep the job I just got on Tuesday at the school?

Watching this on the news when it is happening to other people is sickening enough... and when it is your whole life about to be washed away the feeling is indescribable

The eye basically went between our house and Key West... fuck fuck fuck

Keep us posted and hopefully the banter here can be at least a small distraction. I know it's easy for me to say, but you'll make it through this no matter how difficult it may be.

That's crazy. Hopefully the damage won't be as severe as you may think.

I can't imagine. Try not to be too pessimistic at this point. Tackle the problems as they come.

I just now found out that my uncle is in Cape Coral right now, and didn't evacuate for some reason. The eye is supposed to side swipe them in about four hours and they're expecting some of the worst storm surge to happen through that area too, so I just suddenly went from generally worried for other people to very specifically worried. He doesn't even live down there, so I'm really unclear why he's there and even moreso why he stayed.

Hope he had a good enough reason. Shame if it were just an impulsive visit. May he stay safe though.

If he were the type to do that, I'd be a lot less confused, be he is decidedly not the kind of guy who goes into a hurricane for the thrill of it.

EDIT: I got an answer. My uncle is a retired nurse and went down there to care for a friend who is too ill to evacuate.

Sounds like your uncle is the man. Hope he's okay!

He is. Got word a bit ago that he and his friend rode out the storm. A little property damage, and the power is, of course, out, but nothing serious or unexpected, and no injuries.

Sonofsuns34, hopefully everything turns out okay. My inlaws have a house near naples and they still don't know what the extent of their damage is.

I think the biggest deal for Florida is going to be clearing the streets and getting power restored. It could take months

Yeah, I know it's impossible to have heard anything at this point, but I can't stop thinking about how he's doing and what happened to his home.
