I cannot remember the last time we had a hurricane here in Michigan...like maybe Never.

Be safe down there Richard, if this thing is as big as they say, the after effects will be a slow recovery.

(This picture is what Irmas size would be if it was over Michigan)

Oh boy, track going further east and showing the eye will be going directly over my home in New Smyrna Beach. We're under control at funeral home and cemetery with two burials scheduled Saturday so I will be headed home Friday. The traffic in south Florida is crazy due to mandatory evacuations.

I remember when Andrew went across. The only homes left with a roof were the ones built by habit for humanity. Do you suppose that they learned a lesson from that?

According to all the news reports they did but, the test is coming. There are a lot of high-rise cranes they cannot get down in time for the storm. They will try to secure them as best as they can but they will allow the tops to move freely in the wind.

They actually tried this in the past but this time Gov. Scott said not happening.

We have you and everyone else in our prayers. This is a very scary situation, just to be hearing about, let alone living through it.
