Just got finished breaking in our new generator. Current track as of 11am has it off shore and just some tropical winds for us inland.

HOWEVER, it is just not that simple either. We have had major rains the last 30 days. Some areas are under water just from the rains. So more rain and almost any kind of wind -- means down trees across power lines. So power may be our problem more than anything. Our house and water is not a problem, and new roof from Irma is now not a problem. But power can be a problem, as we have had some outages just from the rains/thunderstorms the last 30 days. Not talking blips (those have been more than I can count - that is why we have battery backup on our tv's and satellite connection), but have had several hours of outages over the last thirty days.

As a result we are expecting probably a day or two of no power at the house and are preparing for that now.

Grand Bahamas are going to get slammed. Hopefully they have been boarding up the last few days. They will probably be without power and water for weeks, as I suspect it might be a cat 5 by then. Next report from NCH is at 5pm and they were seeing cat 5 winds at 2pm today but not enough to call it officially as a cat 5.

Unbelieveable conditions in the Bahamas.. With 180 mph winds and the latest tracks coming closer to Florida, not feeling as good today as yesterday...…… Thoughts are with those in the Bahamas.

OMG !! And we thought SXM was destroyed. There is not a square foot of land un touched on both islands, How will they ever recover? I read where one man lost everything, even his wife. How sad.
