Its still pummeling us here in the keys.....a train wreck is happening a little at a time. Little pieces of peoples life keep blowing by. So happy that it stayed offshore, but it was sure much closer than they said 2 days ago. Im still wondering if it will come ashore much more to the south of Tampa than they predicted. Winds have had to reach 50 here in keylargo, and probably higher sometimes. Its blowing 35-40 still !! School is out for second day now. God bless all of you north of us.....ray....be careful man !! Trailer is no match for cat 4 storm.....hang on bro !! I've got to put eyes on the outside now and see whats happening in the neighborhood.....if I can !!

Most importantly.....my boat made it through without the neighbors sap-o-dilly tree falling on it. The tree is over 120 years old and looks like it'll make it through another hurricane......its been leaning my way since Irma.

Fort Jefferson was in the eye !! Thats way closer than they ever said. Im sure keywest was battered and flooded !!
Looks like Tampa is right on the edge now. It certainly slipped south. The upper barrier island of Anna Maria will be spared once again from a direct hit.
Not looking good for the those that are in direct line of this monster.
Thinking of the beach front we stayed at in Venice for a month. Probably will be a goner after this hit. :(

Pouring rain here on the East Coast, no wind yet and hopefully we won't get much, maybe a few gusts later tonight & tomorrow. Supposed to rapidly weaken after it comes ashore so by the time it skirts us we should be OK. My nephew pulled his boat and got out of Ft. Myers yesterday. My niece in Bradenton should be fine with some heavy rain and gusts. Everyone take care.

Well...I can tell now that this is far from over for us and will probably be an all day affair again for me. Its stronger now than last night.....intensity has stayed the same for us....about 35-50 with some lulls here and there. Its roaring out there as this thing strengthens. This is gonna crush cape coral/fort meyers area !! It just looks like its getting stronger as it land falls !!
