Thanks to all who are praying for all of us in Florida as Irma is now hitting with all of her fury. I am safe thanks to being in NW FL. We will get a tropical storm only. But so much of the emergency support is still needed in Texas, things will be stretched very thin in southern Florida. The eye is just hitting and over 500 million are already without power. Again thanks to all.

My daughter was returning from a wedding in Destin this morning and sent video of the LINES of power trucks and pickups towing small boats (they all looked alike and had blinking lights on top, so I assume they were government owned) that were traveling south. They are coming to help as fast as they can and I'm sure will park just out of harms way waiting to get into Florida and quickly as they can! Be safe. We're all praying for those in Irma's path!!

We heard on the radio this morning there are 5 million people without power in Florida. I'm praying for everyone concerned. Mother nature sure is angry at the moment. Keep safe everyone, love Chris

I'm so thankful that there has been plenty of time to prepare for this latest catastrophe. I hope you are safe and don't have too many issues. Our local KMart parking lot has about 50 bucket trucks standing by. I don't know if they are traveling elsewhere or are preparing for what will come here. We have generators, water, and food stored. Waiting another day to bring in any of our outdoor furniture, plants, bird feeders, etc. Praying for Florida and Texas right now.

I just finished the yard chores. My chairs are rather heavy and it's a long walk to the garage, so I turned them and my glider all down onto the ground and took in all the little gardening stuff like watering cans, buckets, hose sprayers, etc. Took planters out of plant stands and off shepherd's hooks and put them directly on patio or the ground, hopefully down out of much of the wind. Took way more time than I thought it would - about 2 hours. Turned small statues face down on the ground, too. Good luck with your preparation. Took my wheelie trash can into garage, as it is top-heavy on a normal day!

I didn't sleep last night and I know you haven't got much either. The NWC said Irma came in 14 miles further west than predicted, so you may get more winds than first expected. Keep us updated on your conditions, as you are able. We will be leaving in about 30 minutes for church, so I will check in when I return. Help will come, but not until this is over and it is safe. Take care-love ya-Toogie

Sorry, I meant 500 thousand are without power already. I pray that remains a typo.
