Ibotta “friends” please check in ! Lots of rain& wind gusts here in Brandon/Valrico, no power outages. Fort Myers w 100 mph wind gusts, over 600,00 w/o power.
I'm hoping those who were told to evacuate did so. I've been following Jim Cantore all day and watching him struggle to stay vertical.
I'm thinking of all of you and hope you stay safe and avoid property damage as well.
Swimming Pool? I guess you were expecting more rain to fill it back up. Hope you can swim in it soon.
We have had rain off an on. Haven't seen the sun, but it has tried to peek out a few times. I suspect we will get more tomorrow. I am working remotely, so I hope we don't loose power like we did a few years ago.
Take care and stay safe.
@Icequeen813 and all those in Florida, hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. The noon news is showing pics and video of Florida and it looks bad. They gave an update and said the eye of Ian has just left Florida, hope you guys get plenty of sunshine soon.
Hoping that those in GA, SC and NC stay safe as the storm gets closer. I know parts of NC are under a Tropical Storm Warning from 11am Thurs lasting about 36 hours.
We lost power at 12:30 am Thursday morning. My nephew came over at 10 am and hooked up a brand new generator. No air conditioning, but the temperature dropped into the mid 60's, so we survived.
Power came back up at 6 pm and I disconnected the generator.
As of right now, no damage, but our internet is still out. Hopefully, it will come back soon. We stream all TV, so it's been interesting to find things to do.
