The clean up is not bad here....lots of leaves, and branches down, but not to bad. Im halfway through getting the boats back to normal. Breezy with sun and passing showers and storms.....soon it'll be time to detect !!

Our local power company is not playing around with this hurricane. They have within the last 24 hours let out 2.5 Feet of the lake waters getting ready.This is our Hydro-Electric Dam that makes the lake possible.

I feel for yall, we rode out Hurricane Michael in our house. Last report we got before losing power was it was going to be a Cat 3. Turned into a Cat 5, and it was too late to evacuate.

A pass for us is a hit for someone else, and that sucks. We just had the last of our repairs finished the beginning of this August. Yes Aug 2022 for a storm that hit Oct 2018.

If any of our members need anything, let us know how we can help.

It can be a long journey getting repaired and dealing with insurance. I got hit a couple years ago by a tornado. After the long and difficult road with my insurance company the repairs were completed a wind sheer took a large pine tree straight across my roof the next day. I am still fixing stuff.

Detecting day for me. Tomorrow I go with the feds to try and pick up cultural heritage for the state. I was able to team up with an FWC biologist, and im getting some sweet permissions. This one is on protected federal land, and artifacts have been exposed from beach erosion. Including shipwreck wood im told. Ill be on my own today at a spot that has yeileded both silver coins, and melted gold bits. There has been some real erosion down here !!
