    Hurricane check-in?

    How are y'all who were in the paths of Howard and Irma? Did you survive without much damage, I hope?

    No damage at all, oddly enough. We expected to lose everything to the storm surge.
    My heart goes out to those who weren't so fortunate.
    She's a tired old barge but she's paid for!

    All good in Pensacola, just lost time to shuttering the house, but that is an insurance contract requirement, to comply with my application submission.
    Son in Tampa area had a hole punctured in his pool cage screen from falling tree debris, and that is it!!

    We had no home damage in Katy Texas from Harvey with just under 40 in of rain, All animals horses, cows, sheep and chickens survived huddled around the building, and under the Houseboat, Ducks are the only ones that loved it! Ceiling in Houseboat got wet from leakage, but not a big problem to fix, messed up my blasting and painting weekend for bottom. Lots of damage all around, we were very fortunate.

    Oh, Tom.... duh... brain fade. You know what I meant, (bless my befuddled heart.)

    We're very glad to hear that those in harm's way made it through with minimal damage. Not even much rain here, but the season ain't over yet.

    We snapped a couple of dock lines and lost a little canvas. The dock itself broke in a couple of places on down from my slip.
