LOL! Mindy is going to be too busy hollering at James not to go out!
Seriously, a little bit of math will tell you how long the eye will take to go over (eye is 20 miles wide, hurricane is travelling at 20mph, 1 hour of calm) BUT, BUT, BUT - no one truly knows where they are in the eye, whether or not the direction of the eye is changing, and whether it's expanding or contracting while going over, so DON'T GO OUTDOORS until the authorities give the all-clear! That's the one thing I remember most about my first hurricane is the direct order we were given before it hit - DO NOT GO OUTSIDE until you're given the all-clear. I didn't have to be told twice...

If and when things get hairy I know we can depend on NTMI to find a way to help the communities affected. Come find us with your drone, Brother. Smile

James is too skeered to go out. Lol. Just kidding.

I will go out, snap a quick video to show how calm it is, then run back inside. Quick as a wink. Smile

We're hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.

We missed the midnight point of no return for evacuating.

We're about twelve miles from the Gulf, so we aren't in a flood zone or mandatory evacuation area. Our house is relatively new, and built strong. It has hurricane impact windows.

We now have plenty of water, Coke Zero, and snacks. We expect a loud, scary day tomorrow, but I think we'll be fine.


Good luck Mindy and all in direct line of Irma. Please be cautious and stay safe.

If they accepted your money as premium paid, they will be forced to deliver by law...
I don't think so. There's a 30 day wait for insurance in Florida. I was so close.

Speaking of close.... Reminds me of the time my blaze was a zillion year old oak tree because it was the only tree like it in this whole forest area by Taos. We were forced to leave as I was caring for my father and returned a week later only to find this same tree toppled over. What were the chances? It had to be well over 200 years old. The week before I was right at it's base too...I could have been impailed by it and sent into the ground 6ft.

I'm always close, but no cigar.

Hey Will, hope you got everything buttoned up. Unfortunately, I have to agree w/ Stephanie on that one. I'm no expert, but I remember the 30 day lag in effective date, it applies to most major insurance.

I remember having an outrageous outhouse solve in the early days - even corresponded with Bubba on it. But before I knew it, the outhouse got removed by the Forest Service. Sometimes it's better to be lucky! Cigars are overrated if you don't smoke.
