There was a lot of chatter directed to those of you who stayed through Irma. Just curious if you all made out okay. If so, are you digging out? Light damage? Photos would be great.

Minimal damage to my pool cage. Appears to just need screen replacement. Stuck in NYC right now for work but headed down there at the end of the month.

Starting my 5th day on the generator(Generac 5500/8500) Purchased it during the Hurricane season of 2004. Currently brewing a pot of coffee with my MR COFFEE! Rumor has it that we will have power Sunday. Tomorrow I'll get up on the roof to take a CLOSE look. Taking cold showers is getting real old!

Our family condo at Fort Myers Beach really lucked out. In fact, Fort Myers Beach was not even flooded. Power was only out for a couple of days. Only damage was 2 snapped palm trees on the condo property. Oddly enough, areas all around us as close as Bonita Springs (10 mins by car) got it real bad.

Has anyone heard from Vic Stewart? From what I understood, He hung his Captains hat in Ft Myers.

The center of the eye passed 10 miles to the west of my house as a CAT 2. One house destroyed in our neighborhood a lot of car ports torn off sheds missing. I have 4 large trees on the property and they are fine thought for sure a live oak would come down. Can't believe our house survived with no damage at all.
We just got power back on today Sept 15 9:00am.

Dave I will call you Saturday.

We raised her sky high on our 20K Deco lift. Also removed all canvas and seats. No damage here, but a bit of clean up. Griff

Pensacola is technically Florida. Actually "LA",. Lower Alabama. What Hurricane? Clear skies and a little wind. Wow, did we miss it.

That's where I fell in love with Fl last October. Swimming in the ocean in October! The redneck riviera! Crab Island, which I guess used to be an island, but another hurricane made it a sand bar...
Glad those beautiful beaches didn't get hammered.

Wasn't too bad in Fort Lauderdale. No damages to our boats in the canal, all stripped down and tied up on both sides.

Power came back at random, some got it 24 hours after, some are still waiting with no A/C and temperatures in the 95!
Not everybody is that lucky. Here is the mail we just received from friends in the keys. No picture needed, just imagine:

We are ok here. Our house flooded with salt water. We waded around inside in two feet of water. As we had to open the door to go out into our patio to continue to secure things, we had seaweed, branches, leaves and debris floating all throughout the house. The patio is enclosed with hurricane screen, so it is safe to go out there, but debris pushed it’s way in through gaps between the screen sections, driven by high winds and seas. There were huge timbers, poles, fish cleaning tables, some with roofs on them, floating platforms for storing water sports vehicles and on and on and on… Power went out early in the game, along with telephone, and cellular service. Lost refrigerator, washer, dryer, dishwasher, all furniture and many other things. All is piled in front of the house awaiting insurance inspectors. Have had days of hot, heavy, tiring work picking up seaweed, vegetation, all those timbers and poles etc., along with the appliances and furniture. Got the computer up and functioning yesterday evening. This is the first moment that I have had to sit down and read email. Phones began ringing, and ringing, and ringing, but they were useless for communication. We answer, and nothing - completely dead. Cellular service is finally up, and usable. We have little time to even answer, as we are still “digging out.” Our friends from Miami managed to buy a new washer and dryer for us, which they trailered down yesterday afternoon. When power came back on, we checked circuits, and restored service where possible. Fortunately, the air conditioner still works. We have a new freezer outside that is still working, but trips the ground fault interruptor from time to time. We just keep checking it, and resetting it, and can hopefully keep it operational until we can replace it. We had a very small refrigerator that Lynn kept at the marina to keep her lunch in. We brought that home, and it is working fine. Many boats sank at the end of our canal, or were driven ashore. None of our tenants at the marina lost their boats, and none had serious damage. Three boats that were mostly underwater, but still floating washed into our marina. One of the boats, with two large outboard motors was upside down. Other large boats broke free, and jammed the canal that leads to our marina. The marina is two feet deep in seaweed, but there was no damage to the building. We did however, have six pilings break. I could go on with more, as we are surrounded by damage, but you get the picture. Thanks again for thinking of us.
