    I'm watching the news. I cannot imagine what it is like for the people Bahamas, nor can I imagine gusts of 220 mph. That storm is just crawling over Grand Bahama Island. I wonder if anything will be left.

    ‘News reports this morning saying it’s crawling through the Bahamas and just 1 mph. I can’t imagine a worse scenario.

    It's crazy. I saw the shore area, my shore area, and really hope it turns out to sea and leaves. I make settlement on Sept. 20 on the sale of my condo and the roof on the building is needs replacement and the other board members are dragging their feet.

    if it turns north, we will get some rain bands, and trop force winds, but we are just on the line of the cone.
    today was pretty weird. we had some periods of gusts and horizontal rain....then the bus sky would appear and it would get to be 90 again.

    if it does not turn we are pretty screwed.
    but we survived well in Irma.
    we are in western polk county on the Hillsborough county line.
