check in when u have time,,,everyone ok ?
This is the big storm that wasn't, thanks to Cuba
South of us got absolutely hammered but not terrible here. No power for a while I'm sure but we have running water. Internet has been sketchy. On the drive home some water pressure regulators were spewing water everywhere so we may lose water also. Still some 25-30 mph gusts and they say more storms coming. Need to conserve phone power so won't be checking in here much.
Storm downgraded further to a tropical storm. Good luck, WB.
Thanks, we'll be fine here but i am more worried about stinkyb, afraid the storm surge might have got his place
Gecko it could have been SO MUCH WORSE for so many but this was pretty bad buddy
Be safe guys ps IF any of you have not seen how you can charge your phone with a 9 VOLT battery , check it out it is a neat lille trick that was all over social network during the storm and might help some of u out .
I've seen that but I'll be ok, have a back up phone and car charger
Can someone update on Jose, internet is running slow taking forever to update. Heard it did a loop and is heading for east coast of fla
Edit: Disregard, finally loaded and i see it heading north
too far out just yet , lets see after its loop de loop how Jose is looking but I don't think we can write him off just yet still many days remaining
Checking out stuff and this " Jose " as of now is way beyond what I can understand,,maybe a weather geek can chime in but I think we still have to watch this one , Im not sure which way its headed
Thanks man.... but my place survived unscathed. Surge In St. Aug was prob half of Matthew, and alot of flooding was rain not being able to receed at High Tide as it blew onshore 50-60 kts for 2 days it seemed.
Back of my neighborhood flooded again but luckily prob only a few houses this time vs only a few that didnt. I also sealed every opening to my house with roofing tape, 3/4" plywood, and marine caulk on the seams. Not sure if it would've held up to the 20" around my house that Matthew's surge created..... but glad I didnt have to test. I think the power staying on saved me, as I installed a sumppump on a float switch by my front door to get water off the property, who knows? rain, yeah, surge, I doubt it. but either way I spent 3 full days and prob $300 to make sure that wasnt happening again. (roofing tape tar most like fuctup my new garage doors but so what)
Somehow we had power and TV almost the whole time, Sunday night/ monday morn it got pretty nasty....laying in bed at my parents (in a beer induced "sleep") I could here roof tiles popping and the exahust vent get ripped off (gusts hit 94 before the meter went out)
*speaking of... apparently I drove through a F2 tornado sunday trying to get back to watch the shitty ass JETS*...... heavy intense shit
literally beat the motherfucker on a1a when this happenned:
I think I smoked the tranny on my silver burro trying to power through that shit but #gonissan
Sadly JAX is the place that got smashed this time..... ALL TIME bad flooding for there
Hopefully your homestead fared well also!!
*watching that game... THIS TEAM SUCKS!! Ive never rooted for them to lose, but I think i truly want them to go 1-15 (with the one win vs the Dolphins causing them to miss the payoffs)
Stinky glad you are ok ,,,,,
Thanks man! !!
I somehow power through all the stupid situations I put myself through
Glad you made out ok. We are ok here, only without power for about 20 hours, friend had generator so had power to kitchen and cable, unfortunately cable went out before 11 pm. Some of the homes in here were not so lucky, saw many that roofs were torn apart, a couple that lost side walls. Of course massive amount of limbs and trees down.
Unfortunately my son is still without power in Orlando, daughter in Lakeland also without power but I think she also dodged a bullet with the huge oaks in her backyard. Kids in Pinellas made out good.
We just kept cooking through the storm, friends wife works for HSN so they have every cooking implement known to man. Chicken on the gas griddle, 5 1/2 lb pork loin in the electric pressure cooker, sausage on the grill. They have 3 teenage boys, so with 7 of us there, had a lot of stomachs to try and eat the food from 3 freezers before it went bad.
Didn't think about it until I went shopping yesterday, how expensive it is to replace everything in the fridge. But I can't complain since there are millions much worse off than us.
I only got to see the first drive of the game before we had to take off so didn't get to see how ugly it was, guess I'll see that this week.
Pictured below is the European models latest 12z run from today. (Hits NYC, again....one run.)
Any weather folks want to chime in?
Jose is stalled out in the Atlantic spinning, when it starts moving again it's like the big wheel at the casino nobody knows which way it's going to go. The Northeast is a possibility like the GFS showed a few days ago but my question is what sort of intensity could we expect with a direct B-line hit? It's been a mild summer here and the waters must be pretty cold
UKMET has had this in its sites for 2 days or so,,,,other models were not buying in until today,,,,,,Jose still has a long way to go before anyone knows which way for sure,,,,,I think we best let it do this loop de loop and then sort this out,,,but Im a novice what do I know
Hopefully it doesn't head for South or Central Fla, many still without power. I'm heading to Lakeland tomorrow with coolers of ice and other supplies.
We've been getting many out of staters just driving down with trailers full of supplies. Friend works in supply chain for school board and they warehouse all emergency supplies, she has been telling me about people from all over coming in.
