SWJ Up and Running

I was in a mandatory evacuation zone so me, my two dogs and two cats left just before the storm arrived on the mainland for a house nearby that wasn't. Long story short - just arrived back home, no damage and the electric power was still on. The eye passed just east of me and that seemed to make a world of difference (east vs. west side of a hurricane). My best wishes and thoughts are with those nearby who bore the brunt of Irma's march north.

Glad to hear you and yours are safe and OK.

Have a brother in Homestead (who was there also for Andrew) -- who said that he lost power -- but only for a day or so. This could have been so much worse.

Best wishes as the recovery -- for much of the entire state of Florida it would seem -- goes forward.
