Hurricane Irma is approaching us here beachside on the Atlantic coast of Florida. We went through Matthew last year with minimal damage when we evacuated. This year, because of different dynamics, we're staying, unless we're mandatorily evacuated. Order of importance for survival- wife, mother in law, cat, me, my 6 guitars. See you all on the other side!

Best of luck to you. I monitor this type of weather as part of my job and this storm is a bad one. Let us know how it was when you can. Jim

I'm very appreciative of all your concerns. So far, so good, at least for our area on the central Atlantic coast of Florida. For those of you who might be following this storm, you know that it's becoming a west coast storm, which is good for us, but not for those folks. Right now, in our area, I'm looking at peak winds of 70 mph tomorrow night into early Monday morning from the south, which should be no problem. We have friends and relatives on the other coast, so we are obviously concerned about them. Further report tomorrow. In the meantime, a lot of acoustic playing and practice. Always good. Thanks for all of your good wishes.

Our local news had a story of a family that in spite of what's going on was still determined to go down there for their planned trip to Disney world. But it turned out that them stopping to talk to the news reporter caused them to miss their flight by two minutes, so they figured it wasn't meant to be. The Dad told the reporter, "For all we know, it might be that you guys saved our lives!"

We came out ok. We had a lot of flooding around my mother in law's house but nothing infringing except a small outdoor shed. As far as we know, everything oceanside where our condo is, is intact. We'll go there tomorrow to check things out. We were very lucky. Thank God (Eric Clapton).

My sister's house in Punta Gorda Florida weathered the storm very well. And it is right on the water. So in that case she and her hubby dodged the bullet on that storm. One of our outlaws (former brother in law)(we have a large family with several outlaws and many in laws in it, the divorced ones are the outlaws)(many times the outlaws bring their new spouses to the parties, every one gets along) Anyways the one outlaw went over to the sisters house and looked around. And my sisters son in law is on his way to Florida as I type this, his place is right next door to my sisters house. He will care for the place as needed. And has keys to get in the place to look inside which the outlaw did not have.
