I'll be sure to keep Ed top of mind and call out to him from time to time.

Looking at the radar, right now Ed is getting the complete shitshow of the storm.

Right now.

Thank you for your concern.
Ed, your force field was too powerful. It cleared out the whole bay.

I’m 100% sure he is alive. His property and belongings are a different story.

Unless you are damn fool, injury or death from a hurricane when you are inland is a very rare thing.

Piffle.

Lots of wind but my time here prepared me for that.

Lots of branches, one tree down. No water damage.

Look at the north side of this tree

Really howling wind last night. Over pretty much by 11 or so

We had trees near the house removed and got a metal roof on the barn and house. Code calls for screws every foot or something like that.

Last hurricane we had one of those Terra cotta tile roofs. It was old and those tiles were slipping. I was surprised they didn't fly off.

But don't forget to check the house for gators. And sharks.

Damnit. I just added Ed as my choice in the Missed Opportunity thread.





So, Ed. . . . Maybe try a new hobby? Like sky-diving or gator wrestling?
