The worst missed us. We were spared. From what I gather Mexico beach and Panama city beach sustained significant damage.

Hyde, let me rephrase....from what I'm hearing from friends it is really really bad there.
Xixixi 🍀❓
Good to hear that the worst missed you!

It must be hard to live under the constant threat of natural disasters. How do you cop with that?

It's just a natural way of life here. We think the same way about all that snow y'all have. We'll dance in the streets for a hurricane, but one little flurry and we'll evacuate South or lock ourselves indoors.

Hyde, 😄 Just a matter of perspectives.

Charlie🥓Waffles, yes I've been on the beach rocking out during a hurricane. Not a strong one, but still a hurricane.
Charlie🥓Waffles
Hyde, damn 😂 ... i guess i‘d love to see stuff like this for real once.. these amazing shelfclouds... but also..i‘d probably be pretty scared 🤣

Glad you’re all good. Heard 10 is closed. Mexico Beach was decimated. Your power on?

My power came back on today. Panama city and Mexico beach are basically wastelands. I haven't been that way, but have friends and family in PC, the destruction is a lot. I have an aunt who is an RN at the PC hospital and was on duty during the storm. She sent me some pics off the damage that won't make the news and it's rough.

How did it go are you ok?

We are fine here. We are about 60 miles (the way the crow flies) from where the eye wall came ashore at tyndal air force base. The strongest winds circle the eye wall but don't extend our from the eye wall very far.

Righteous Pie Loving Joshua, i should mention that we were on the west side of the storm which is not nearly a bad as the easy side of the storm.

Have you been out looking around the area? Send a card with pics please

I've not been down to that area. Bay county was among the hardest hit and they aren't letting anyone in or out of the county. I'm not down that way often. But I do have some pics from family that are there.

Hyde, I hope they're ok, and didn't lose too much

HydeAuthor
Hanover Fiste, I have done in-laws that did lose their house. To be exact it is my mother's brother's wife's sister. Half of the roof is gone and everything insid's is extensively damaged.
Hanover Fiste
Hyde, oh that sucks, but I hope they're ok physically
10
HydeAuthor
Hanover Fiste, yes and no. They are physically fine as they came inland a bit before it hit. Their roof came off of about half of their house.

i often think it must be so cool to live near the beach and ocean.. but then i see stuff like this...or tsunamis/volcanos/earthquakes... and am glad to have none of that happen here in boringland 🤣😂

That's exactly how I feel about all that snow y'all have😄
Charlie🥓Waffles
Hyde, we dont even have that much in northern bavaria.. the alps region or basically the deep south gets more i guess xD

HydeAuthor
Charlie🥓Waffles, how many days does it get below freezing?? To be honest it isn't the snow that scares me it is the frigid weather. I like wearing flip-flops 9-10 months of the year.

Hyde, winter lets say..the cold temps are usually nov-march or so... this year we have an awesome summer.. it feels like its neverending XD .. its mid october now and still pretty warm(by our standards 😅) 71F atm 4:30pm ... its already fall and usually not that warm..
10
HydeAuthor
Charlie🥓Waffles, like I told Freisy, i can deal with the wind, water, and whatever else. But not the cold
Charlie🥓Waffles
Hyde, 😅😅 well yea... but the cold without wind or rain is also not that worse.. 😂
HydeAuthor
Charlie🥓Waffles, that's because you grew up there. I think the wind and rain is not so bad. We both have the occasional storm that breaks the trend. #fuqablizzard
