Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the folks waking up this morning to find out all the damage that they have from Ian. We need to occasionally step back put our business into perspective.
Dealing with a tenant and toilet isn't a pleasant task. Dealing with 12 ft of storm surge and missing walls will make todays tasking look easy. In the end though, you can always rebuild - if you have your health

I try to look at the bright side of Mother Nature's wrath. Think of all of the construction related jobs and building material sales/home appliance sales that always follow hurricanes and tornadoes. Here when tornadoes are in the forecasts, the roofers here all begin to drool. I am not kidding. --71.207.xxx.x

I shouldn't complain about the almost 6 month long winters here with overcast skies and freezing temps as well as snow storms.
When I think about the downside to all that good weather: mudslides, tornadoes, flooding, hurricanes, not for me!
Hopefully they can recover quicky from the devastation. I also have renewed admiration for those sea farers of olden days. --72.231.xxx.xx

The area on the east coast of FL where my folks once lived is getting major flooding already. It's now high tide, and I'm waiting to hear how bad the flooding is in their old MH park on a barrier island - the house was on the Intercoastal waterway in a flood zone. SO glad that my brother and I decided not to make it a seasonal rental/family retreat when we inherited it!
But some of Dad's old friends still live there, which makes me a bit anxious to know how they all fared. --98.115.xxx.xxx

I am currently in Bartow/Winer Haven, FL on a travel nurse assignment. For where I am, the storm has cleared, thankfully. Traffic is moving normally. Some businesses still closed. We were without power overnight and it returned this morning about 11:00EST. As many or most of you know, the west coast is what was hit the most. I had just a slight amount of water on the floor by the window in my first floor hotel room, but not much considering other places have feet. Had a little difficulty sleeping last night with 70-80 mph winds and not knowing what to expect, but again, from where I am located about an hour south or Orlando, it kind of looked like one of our once-in-a-century blizzards only a different form of precipitation. --74.199.xxx.xxx
