MaxSez: Irma, Hell of a ride! Been thru Typhoons at sea& Hawaii. Earth Quakes & Volcano eruptions in Hawaii and Okinawa, Tsunami’s in the South Pacific and the Indian Ocean. Let me tell you Irma’s Cat 4 in SWFlorida (Ft. Myers) was a bear and causes memories to fade. Irma was a slow mover stayed in here for about 7+ Hours. 80+ Mph Gusts, my Wx station blew down, horizontal rain in sheets. Was ready, well stocked. Minor damage to the house due to location and 1 story, winds blocked by 2 stories blocking. Gated Community all streets flooded, multiple golf course pond/ lake breached majority of streets flooded, on high ground near entrance can get out all major roads a mess. No power, no traffic lights, open roads look like TS-1 on a bzy day. Just got intermittent power back. KSRW & KFMP remain closed
due to lack of power to nav aids. Expect they will open by Friday for commercial service.
Thank to those who checked in the last few days. All’s well… Max is back!
