My wife and I moved out here to Ormond By The Sea, Florida from California the spring of 16 to retire. We are now about to experience our 3rd hurricane in 4 years since we've been here. The first one (Matthew in 16) we evacuated to the gulf side to relatives. I left my guitars and studio gear alone in our condo unit in the open air. We got back a few days later, no major damage and everything in the studio was fine. The second one (Irma in 17) all my guitars (except one, a man has to play) and studio gear were in storage while our unit was being renovated. When I unpacked the guitars all the strings were starting to rust. I replaced all and did complete set ups and cleaning. Now we have Dorian approaching. After renovations our unit is air tight. I'll leave the studio alone, no packing. I have a dehumidifier in there set at 50%, but if we lose power... Anyway, just a little guitar/hurricane story for ya'll.🎸🌊

My brother is in Vero Beach. This storm if it doesn’t turn north it is heading straight at his house. He is going to ride it out.

Looks like Florida is getting a bit of a break, this time. Glad to see that.

Well you are not alone my friend. Tokyo took a direct hit from the strongest typhoon in ages.
We had to end a film shoot early, all public transportation stopped.
That turned out to be a good idea. Usually typhoons are a lot of fuss and hype, and not much actually
happens. Not this time. On Monday the work people told me, just stay home. That was a good idea too.
The train stations were a nightmare.

Glad all went well for you Skip, as well as being glad that Dorian did not do too much devastation on the US mainland, although the Bahamas look devastated, that is a sad thing to witness.

Sounds like another one might be on the same track. Best of luck to all in it's path. Pretty safe here in St. Louis as long as I don't get shot.

We get the remnants of the Pacific and Gulf storms here in the lovely Sonoran Desert. Sometimes we have micro-bursts that have 60+ MPH winds and giant thunderstorms that knock giant trees over. In fact one of those storms ripped a shed roof up and off of the shed, one full block away from us, it flew over two houses and smashed into my steps and if flipped up and broke a bit of my vinyl siding. Did $1,096 worth of damage to the house but I have a thousand deductible, so I cancelled the claim and paid some friends to fix it, I think it cost me about $300 or so to do the repairs.
