We live in Floral City, not far from Rock Crusher. The storm has passed well to the north. There has been some light on and off rain with cloudy overcast skies. Winds have been in the 5 to 15 MPH range. Right now it's calm. Crystal River has experienced on and off flooding near the coast at high tide. No reports from Cedar Key but if there have been any serious issues, it would have been on the news by now. Avoid the western panhandle from Tallahassee west but the rest of the state is just fine. Most of you don't need to change any plans unless you were going to the bullseye area. Chuck

Here in Albany GA waiting.. some rain, but no excessive wind yet. I think the waiting is about the worse.. Have cleaned the yard, put everything in garage I could. Filled water tanks on MH, have everything plugged in to stay charged until power goes out. Just waiting for late afternoon.

I do understand why houses in FL do not have basements.. But the "Tornados" (the smallest tornado is roughly a Cat 3 Hurricane as I recall wind speed wise) are no big deal... I won't make further comment on.

But I will say at 155MPH Michael is not cat 1,2,3 but FOUR and pushing 5. which means if you are still there.. Goodby.


Home is where I park it.

They still put the transformers on the pole ? Ours were all put on the ground in boxes years ago. Avoid that transformer it might still have a heck of a jolt in it. And, if it is they very, very, old round style then it is filled with oil that is toxic.

I am watching this stuff on the news now. I'm sorry for everyone that lives in the path of this thing. I think I will stay in MN.
