Affected by Irma?

Live in Clearwater, put the shutters on the windows, turned off the power and water and went to Orlando hoping for the best.

I know we have several members that will be in harms way, stay safe

My wife is sheltering with her family in Titusville, in an up-to-code concrete-block house. God knows how, but they purchased a generator two days ago to replace the smoked one I can't get there to fix. With the westerly track, I think they'll be fine.

I'm concerned for a friend in Tampa, though.

Yep, he checked in on FB this morning. He'll get wet, and might have to duck tornados, but he's much safer there.

At least one can run out of the way of a tornado

Sometimes...

With a hurricane you have to start like 50 miles away from it due to the freakin winds. As a secondary hope, hurricane Josè doesn't hit either on Florida or anywhere.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.
