Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

Greg, I'm so sorry to hear. When it rains, it pours. Hopefully, there will be some less rainy days ahead, if not some sunshine!

Thinking of you, Greg. Wishing you safety and good health.

All the best Greg. You have really been through the trenches. Take care.

I'm sorry to hear about all you've been through, Greg. As a heart attack survivor (also fairly minor) with two stents of my own, I can only encourage you to use this as an opportunity to make a strong commitment to taking good care of yourself. I hope you have access to good follow-up care. I was lucky enough to have a world-class cardiologist (a former president of the American College of Cardiology), and he said that if you do nothing else, take that daily low-dose aspirin. Diet, exercise, and stress management also play an important role. Best of luck to you. And, my condolences for the loss of your father.

I live in Florida, but, about 200-300 miles north of The Keys/Miami area which really got hit; so, apart from losing electricity for 5 days, my area was spared.

I am glad I at least got this, as the whole time of August/early September was quite Hellish for me. First, my Father passed away at 80 years of age. He lived a good life, but, his death came quite sudden.

Then, in the midst of planning his memorial, I felt chest pains and went to the emergency room. It turns out I had a blocked coronary artery and had two stents placed in it. The doctor said I had a minor heart attack, but, fortunately it was minor enough that there was no meaningful damage to my heart. After this, the doctor said that I was doing well in my followup exam and I have been feeling fine. I did, however, have to deal with my Father still being in the morgue of the same hospital as I was having my operation, quite a morbidly emotional experience.

Then came Irma, which, as I said, was at least minor for my area. Finally, I am now getting to a normal life.

Irma's not going anywhere near me, but my nerves are stretched to the breaking point over this. I can only imagine what Floridians are going through, with this huge thing looming over them for the past 10 days-plus. Is this what living through the Cuban Missile Crisis was like?

Yeah, I have close friends in Fort Lauderdale and they're terrified. They're getting out but are afraid of losing everything they have, including both property and community. This one looks to be a monster. I can only hope that it veers off course and/or slows down. Of course that won't help the Caribbean islands that have already been hit.

I can think of several.

Oh, hell yeah.

As long as the storm doesn't drift up the Atlantic and return, I'll probably be fine. But this looks terrifying, and I'm not sure this country is able to handle both this and the Houston storm. And not necessarily because we have this oaf for president. I'm not sure any president will be able to handle the devastation that's about to come so soon after the devastation that's already happened. I can't imagine we have the resources.

I know someone who lives in a house in central Florida that's mostly wood. She and her family managed to reserve a room in hotel that's far safer structurally. They'll be fine. Their home? Who knows? My late dad's wife keeps a winter home on the west coast of Florida. She won't be there, but the property may be vulnerable. We don't even know yet which part of Florida the storm is going to hit, although the entire state will be affected in some way.

I can't think of anyone here who lives in Florida, but if anyone is there, I'm wishing you all the best.
