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.

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.

Here we go again...
Hope all you folks in Florence's path are prepared and in a safe place, and that damage when she arrives is minimal.

My best wishes, and please check in when it's over.

I sold the boat I had in South Carolina. My "new" boat in TN might catch some rain.

Worried about Mimi, and their houseboat.
It appears they are in the path of this one.

I'm worried about them, too.

We, and the Lotus Eater, are fine. Edenton took very little damage. A good bit of rain, and some of the lower streets were flooded, but Florence left us minus a big fender and a stuck bilge pump,only one of twelve, so really, very minor inconveniences. We, and our cat, baled out, flew down to Bay Minette, AL, to visit family for a very pleasant spell. As soon as the clouds cleared, we headed northeastward with a tailwind, to start removing plywood from the windows and picking up sticks. Very lucky, unlike our neighbors to the south, some of whom still have no access to the outside world.

Happy to hear that you and the Lotus Eater are fine. Sorry to hear about your friends. Best wishes to them.

Well, two more meteorological bullets mostly dodged Florence and Michael have skimmed us, but we made out a lot better than others. We had bit of minor houseboat carpentry, dock repair, and a bit of yard cleanup, and now we can hope the rest of the 2018 hurricane season will leave us alone.
