My wife sat it out in Titusville, and came out fine. Power is already back up.

I feel for those on the west side, who might not have power for days to weeks.

I store my motor home in Big Pine Key. I fear I am going to have to pop for a boat registration for it. Thank god its fully insured.

My buddy's home near by seems to have faired fairly well from drone pics. We have not got there yet. A bunch of missing shingles and someones mobile home in the front yard but it still looks square.

I have another buddy that weathered the storm 20 some miles west in Key West. Last heard from him at 930 AM the day of. He was supposed to have an interview on GMA but he refused to say it was really bad and scary so they did not use his interview. He said it wasn't so bad as the news made it seem but that is key west only. Cudjoe, Coppit, Big Pine, and Marathon all got the "Dirty Side" of the rotation. Pretty much ground zero for damage.

Just my 2 cents from a guy who wasn't there...
