Bright sunshine, very gusty winds from due north.

I took a nap when it hit landfall. I was up all night from midnight on, watching this thing.

I watched the RADAR as it came ashore at Tyndall AFB and knew Mexico Beach was gonna get hammered. That kind of flooding is going to have caused quite a few deaths.

That looks pretty nasty. I still have your two beers here Data in case of emergency. I'm thinking we might get a good dose of it, but obviously nothing like that.

Stone cold sober at the moment. Storm's passed and I'm calling neighbors that evacuated to give them reports of their property.

Glad all the VB folk are doing well but it's an ugly deal for many others out there.

You can hear trees busting up around here, and it hasn't even gotten that nasty yet.

Well, the power put up the good fight, but it is now out. Bedtime I reckon.

My cousins in Greensboro FL ( where the first reported fatality is) got thrashed pretty well.

I am going to,see if I can get my 18' flatbed and 8' truck box filled up with supplies and take it to them.

If I could just get them to reply back. Communications is by text only and is very spotty.

That was my next concern. I was already thinking sr 20 would be the way to go. Or even sr 2. Skirt the north end and dodge traffic. It's a nice little drive too.

I 10 is closed from 331 to past Chipley.

Sr 20 is open but there are several bridges closed.

Us 90 is open but again there are several bridge closures.

Looks like I might have to go up into Alabama and try to head south.
