Well after working since 3 this mornin and no sleep I'm whooped. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers, yall are the best. Once again the hot water in Charlotte harbor pulled a major storm inland it's amazing. Tomorrow i'm taking my chainsaw to work and get a years worth of firewood. Some big trees went down and there are lots of folks needing help. Staying in the camper with generator power. cold beer and some sleep are in high demand tonite.

Good to hear you guys are okay.  The pictures on the news makes you wonder how more weren't injured or killed.  Get some sleep Roger and enjoy a cold one.  Good luck with the clean up.

At work today and glad we have power here. We didn't have any problems except no power, trees and  limbs down. Around 11:oo Sunday night in the height of the storm I was outside and amazed to hear and see the flash of at least a dozen transformers blowing up. We have a lot of Power Lines down and wouldn't you know it, my generator or chainsaw won't start. And to make it even better it will going into the 90's again.

I just checked--- The Lakeland UPS store says they should be up and running by tomorrow.
Venice has two stores totally operational today.

Makes me wonder if all the positive thoughts/energy had any effect on the outcome. Sounds like it could have been a lot worse. So glad all are okay.  :)

Glad to here yall are all ok. From the news pictures it looks like a long clean up for most, really sad to see. Eddie I think I would have checked my generator and saw before it got there. :o
