I'm in Weston, about 20 miles due west of Ft. Lauderdale. A small jog south of the projected path and she'll be going right through my back yard.tampa said:Where are you at? Tampa area here. Just waiting to see if its going to be close.

Glad you made out safe... The rest is repairable... The Mustang made out too, that s always good...IndianaJones said:I made out pretty good considering where the storm hit. Lost almost all landscaping, guttering was damaged, screened in patio was damage and a small tree fell on my Expedition which dented it and broke off side view mirror. However, no structural damage to my house and my family was safe. We were in the southern portion of the eye. I thought we were out of the woods when the calm of the eye hit but the backside of the storm really got us. Weston was pretty much devasted as was much of Broward County. Very scary sitting in a shuttered house listening to the storm outside and feeling all the walls shaking inside. Sounded like a tornado but lasted for 5 and a half hours. Thank goodness for the shutters. I don't how many times we heard debris hit them during the storm. Discovered afterwards that it was neighbor's roof tiles. They are basically pieces of bricks that were being tossed around by 100+ miles per hour winds. It's now going to take some time for life to get back to normal. Gas lines are hours long if you can find an open station. Also, most stores are still closed due to damage and power outage. I stocked up over the weekend so am hopefully prepared to ride out the post storm woes. My company got power and water restored sometime today so back to work as usual tomorrow. First step back to some kind of normalcy.
