    Sandy hit us good. Still without power after 24 hours. Downtown Pensacola three feet under water. Luckily we’re a little more away from it so it was mainly lots of wind and rain at our house. I only suffered a fence down, lots of broken tree limbs, and a bent trampoline. Got to love brick home. Not sure on roof leaks yet but looks to be there. My neighbors thought I was crazy two years ago when we cut 26 trees off of our property. Maybe not do crazy now.

    Took a drive to my wife’s work today to help cut and remove fallen trees. Had to take side streets through more low income and trailer park to get there avoiding trees and power lines. I feel bad for them as it was devastating due to their construction, and they usually don’t have much to begin with. Cell tower not good so it’s too slow to load any photos. I guess you could look for us in the news.

    Anyway, going to conserve battery. I hope anyone else on here from Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida is alright. Plus everyone on the west coast still dealing with the crazy fire and smoke.

    Be safe and good luck.
    If you live near a coast anywhere you can expect weather issues will hit you sooner or later.

    So much weather nastiness, sad for those who have not been as lucky as some of us.

    Be safe, good on you for helping out.

    Best wishes to you and yours.

    A coworker here in SoCal just got a job offer at Eglin AFB and put some money down on a house. He's a bit nervous!
