    142 now reported in Naples. Wow. Pretty sure she's gathering her juice one last time before the core starts falling apart.

    3 feet of surge in 10 min also reported just now in Naples. Here comes the water. Not good.

    Dedicated to all those folks effected by whats going on over in the US.
    I know I post this one a lot, but it is so relevant.
    But we are all thinking of you all, and sending our love. For whatever little that helps.

    Goes without saying, I hope any member of the forum who is in the area is okay. Going to Florida myself in a couple of weeks so very glad I missed it.

    Well we have minimal structure damage, no power (up to 6 weeks they say) and clean up. Looters are out so cops are patrolling. I'm going back on Thursday, putting my stuff in storage and then looking for a place in the mountains. Looks like I get to move north sooner than expected. I'm not complaining about that though...I've had enough of the heat and hurricane season isn't over until November.

    The satellite images show the Virgin Islands being completely stripped of vegetation.
    Hurricane Irma wiped out so many plants that these Caribbean islands have changed colors
