If the charts showing the direction of the storm are correct, we will take a hit, but not anywhere near like last year.

The eye will pass just north of us and we will only be hit with the pink area for awhile.

Not sure how long, maybe 6 to 8 hours as this thing is moving slow.

I'm just hoping to still have a roof, and the electric back on again soon.

They will shut the power down sometime today for safety, not sure when but in case it happens soon I wanted to say thanks for all of the prayers and good wishes.

Power will be off for awhile, and cell phones will be down also a few days probably.

Rob will be in touch with with our family down in the city so will be able to update some.


See you all again on the back side of this.

Still have electric for now, but made my post above before it goes out.

It will be hard to say... "well the electric is out now" when they cut it.

We just used a big rope to tie down the front part of the house to help hold the roof on when it comes.

Thinking about it now, the winds will be coming from the backside after it passes so far, so should go try to find some more rope for the back also if I can.

Lot of the neighbors are tying down their homes also.

Took some pics but my wife has the cord with her...

Just searching Twitter and saw that power to the island will be shut off at 10pm. That is 33 minutes from now.

About one more hour and the winds will start to pick up and about two hours from now it will start to be strong winds.
