Kind of unreal to think that the same hurricane will wreck SXM and Florida (as it relates to the Hills).

Of course no way to know about your cell phone towers either.

Hope you are able to ride out this unreal event OK.

I just hope we are able to see some games tomorrow. Gotta say, we watched the first half of the Patriots game and went to bed because we 'assumed' they would win, like always! Too bad I didn't stay up for the second half, to see them get pasted!!!




Something I just saw. Put valuables or stuff you need dry in your dishwasher. It's waterproof. (Though I would turn off your water to it!!) and if you have a front loading clothes washer same thing.

Thanks for all you do for TravelTalk.
To all our family, friends and the folks on TTOL, please stay safe as 'Irma' continues her path into the U.S..
God speed.

They are really starting to roll thru now. Have already gotten 3 inches of rain based on the pool. So think that maybe the estimate of a foot of rain maybe low. After another 4 inches then will not be able to tell by the pool level as it will be over the top.

But we will have plenty of water for the toilets anyway!

11:30 AM update--We've done everything that we know to do. We're getting showers, getting the last load of dishes washed and last load of laundry done. So far all we have is lots of rain. We hope that we will have electric for a while yet. When I was talking about watching football games today, I forgot (somehow!!) that we have Direct TV and we get 'rain fade' and often are out of signal in just a garden variety thunderstorm. So, even if we have electric, we may well not have TV. At least I can read or whatever. Have plenty of food and water. Latest 11 am advisory has the closest point down to 60 miles, down from 80, but hopefully we'll be ok. There have already been several tornado warnings around, but no tornadoes that I am aware of.

As I said, if/when our electric goes off, we will try to keep JD updated of our status.

Take care stay safe, everyone in Florida and everywhere, in Irma's path!

Having grown up in Florida, that is what we did!

My family on Perdido Key did that during (Isabelle? can't recall) and the house flooded, cars lost, deck destroyed, but the things in the dishwasher were fine when they came back after evacuation. ;)

So far the satellite dish is still receiving. Going offline now to hopefully think about something else for a while.
