Re: Hurricane Irma

This is BS. Even if I had a gun, I wouldn't give it up. You think criminals would give theirs up? WTF kind of idiocy is this??

Un Constitutional gun grab.Their guard doesnt exactly have a stellar record of being honest and decent people.Cant loot with the fear of getting shot.

Re: Hurricane Irma

If your in south Floridah I would suggest a camping trip in the mountains of Georgia.Worst case you lose some work time in 55-75 degree weather and lots of nature.
This storm is as strong as Andrew but with a bad projected path.Material things can be bought later.Cant buy your health or life.Good Luck!

Re: Hurricane Irma

Wishing you guys the best of luck with the storm. My parents on the west coast...winds don't look bad for them but the amount of rain could put them (and the rest of FL) under water.

Nothing to do with so-called 'global warming'.

But everyone on the Florida east coast, be smart. Don't wait to leave.

No,but if you or anyone down there needs to borrow a big tent or other camping gear I have enough to "camp"comfortably for a large group.I can bring some paddleboards if anyone camps on the lake.Its been around 55 at night so its great coffee and cigar weather.
