click here for song

The rig is hitched, packed, watered, stocked, gone over, checked out, aired up, etc. Now we wait for an accurate track. We are on very high ground but 80 foot pines are 20 feet from the house.

but 80 foot pines are 20 feet from the house.

I hear ya on the pine trees. Sandy took down a huge "double" tree (one base, two trees). Fortunately it fell away from the house. There's a lot to be concerned about with a storm like this on it's way.

Best of luck to everyone who may be in the storm's path. Right now I'm concerned about our nephew who lives just outside Tampa. Prayers for everyone.

Anyone who waits is going to find themselves stranded when they run out of gas...

We are sitting tight, I do not think we will get much of anything and if so not very little. That is the big advantage of living in the middle of the Fl. Panhandle and almost on the Al.line (only 1/2 mile) . Usually the bad weather goes around us. We need to be here anyway because of the horses, goats, and other farm animals. We might lose power and if so the generators will take up the slack. My son lives in Lake Butler Fl. (near Starke) and most of the stations are out of gasoline in that area, in fact only 1 in Lake Butler has gas and he is probably out now. Seems the evacuates are buying the gas so they can continue on their way. I got an e-mail and A whole list of Fl. State campgrounds are closed with more to come as the Irma advances.
Every one who is escaping please be careful and stay safe.
