Lost power Sunday night around 12:15 (I guess that is officially Monday morning) Didn't get it back until Thursday afternoon. Wednesday night was tough to sleep due to the rising humidity. Having a generator is really a game changer. As SmallFoot said, by the time it reached us here in Central FL it was tropical strength winds. My tree in the front yard got it's butt whooped but survived. Lost a few shingles, but we made it thru just fine. Where I live we are in one of the highest areas around so we didn't get any flooding at all. I had to drain my pool twice before we lost power. Also, FL is mostly sand based and the water usually drains pretty good.
The small school I work at has what we like to call the petrified forest and it had a few trees come down and a lot of limbs & leaves everywhere (10 acres). I have been busier than a one armed paper-hanger trying to get it cleaned up so we can open on Monday. Thank goodness one of our students grandfather spent a whole day with his tractor & chainsaw helping me get a few of these trees moved. Still have several days of work for me, but at least we can open Monday.

Okie dokie then.....Just got my power back about an hour ago. Gonna feel good to get the house cool and take a shower again. I rode it out here. Not a damaged building or bent piece of tin...trees everywhere though. Took me 3 days to clear my driveway. Then there was that tree on the power. They just got that done this morning.
I lost power Sunday evening about 7:15. That was about 7 or 8 hours before the eye went by. As far as wind strength, it was probably a wuss. Because of it's immense size, it covered the entire state from south to north and east to west. If Irma was target shooting, she hit a bullseye and we've been center punched. This state has been thru it so much, they generally have it mastered for a plan when things like this happen. The clean up effort has been phenomenal. To have restored as much as they have in only a week is amazing. Thanks for all the effort! And thanks everybody for thinking of us. I've got a few pix I'll post later. Right now, with power on, I have to take of some things still. Later!

Good to here from ya all. Several days ago we passed 100+ tree cutting service vehicles in less than 2 hrs all headed your way. They mobilized early to get down there before the storm had even passed.

Perfect way to sum that up WB!
