Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Got a friend who lives in Parrish county, he called and said they came thru with flying colors, no flooding, no wind damage to house. He said the eye was about 30 miles to the east of them. He felt very lucky.

By and far, Floridians are cooperating with each other.. Even though down traffic lights are a bit iffy, many people are trying.

My beagle got out this morning while I was cleaning the sediment trap on my well feed to the house.

I didn't see him slip out. 10 mins later, a tree guy cleaning up across the street brings him back. I thru him a 10$ to get some lunch on me and thanked him for walking my dog back.

I have heard of only one instance of looting in a small section of the city.

Glad to hear you're still with us, even if rough times.

How about the property and animals?

Hopefully all went well there as well. Food can be replaced.

I was down in Delray Beach on the south east side last week, got evacuated, flights were cancelled, couldn't Get a flight back, wound up driving the rental car back to NJ. Sat in gas lines and traffic. My son and his family stayed. Put the shutters on the house. He had minimal damage at his house. Dealing with the same stuff as you, no gas or power. His jobsites were damaged.
Glad to here you Ok. How did your horses fair?

Can you siphon fuel out of vehicles? Even abandoned vehicles?

My thinking is running a freezer a few hours generates to much heat around the box... It needs to be ran 12 hour cycles at the least... I was on the boarder of a 75 mile wide streak not the whole state like you.. :(

Agreed, it needs more run time than most of us can spare really.

Gas comes in sometimes 1-2 am... The non workers and people living off the system go camp and leave their vehicles there. Come 6am, looks like a Disney world parking lot...till it runs out.

I did get lucky last night and on way home at 11pm found a WalMart gas station that had a single working diesel pump and no line..topped off.

Got my farm truck to start ( 99 f350 7.3 psd)

It got wet I think from the sideways 135mph rain. Turning key did not make the "wait to start" lamp on the dash illuminate. It would turn over like a helicopter, but if that lamp didn't come on, it wouldn't start. OTOH , if you see the lamp, it will turn and start fine.. Gotta be electrical.. Maybee some relay sticking somewhere not turning ecm on.. Dunno.

I pulled and reseated relays under the hood I could find . Every time id walk by the truck I'd try the key 4 times ( 5 times programs a new remote for the door locks, etc ).

Yesterday afternoon at 7pm, try # 3 yeilded the magic dash lamp and started as predicted.

Maybee the Gemm module got wet.. Dunno...

Had that problem with my 99 power stroke a few years back. It was the fuel heater element in the bottom of the fuel filter housing. Hope this helps.

Yup, everythings spotty here.

I get a little cell service.

I run the Genny here and there for the freezer and well. I suspect we will loose most of the cold items before we can use it.

Cooking via BBQ grill, and microwave or toaster oven when Genny runs.

No phone, no power, internet, for city people, no sewer

You folks are not so well off as we are over here at our place. However some nearby folks have it rough, had a couple of tornados in the area, one just a couple of miles from us. Heavy flooding on the Halifax too. We have no power but phone, cell (occasionally spotty but ok), no cable (it goes out with every storm), internet are working. Had one small roof leak and a few more days picking up downed branches.
