    I'm getting really worried about my friends and family back home. I just heard Irma reached 185 mph winds, that's some apocalyptic level power. By comparison the devastating Hurricane Andrew was 175 mph and this one has the potential to get even stronger due to the warmer waters near the Floridian coast.

    To my fellow Floridian SRKers, I wish you safe travels if you're evacuating and good luck if you're hunkered down.

    My thoughts go out to all who have endured Harvey as well.

    We live in an oceanfront house about an hour north of Miami, evacuated to a resort in Orlando (my family's wierd) where we'll wait out the storm until Tuesday. On the plus side, this place has generators and about 150 Coast Guardsmen on site. Stay safe everyone.

    Fuck, three hurricanes! Jose is a category 4 now!
    Has anyone thanked you today for not setting the whole world on fire?

    They should. I won't. I advocate setting the world on fire. But morons who actually like it, benefit from society, would do well to thank you and men like you for not visiting hell upon them.

    Adjusted models say my area will be hit with 96-115mph winds. No word on whether that's sustained or gusts. That's better, but still. Irma's hitting gusts of 200mph (wtf?!) as it goes by Cuba.

    Idid you know you can up the voltage output of a 9 volt battery if you stack them? I just happened to have a handful of 9 volt batteries that I clicked together like Legos, then I ran automotive wiring I had laying around from a negative and positive on the battery stack into the radio and it works. I swear it felt like a fucking puzzle straight out of Resident Evil 1 or 2. Just in case we lose power/internet, at least we can listen to updates on the radio.

    Yeah if you wire any battery in Series (like you clicking 9 volts together like Legos) you increase the max voltage by all the total voltages of each battery added in the chain.
    You can do the same with 12 AA, C or D batteries (they are all 1.5 volts). C and D batteries will just last longer than the Double A batteries.

    Just checking in. We've been under curfew for 30 minutes now and still have power at the moment.

    It seems Irma passed. No power though.

    Did your house get any severe damage?

    A lot of power outages happening around me and the eye of the storm wont get here until later tonight. We still have power at my location though. There's also been a curfew up since 3pm.

    Crazy, right? My relatives in the southeastern part of the state lost power, but I will be closer to where the storm's path is projected to go and we still have power. It's funny because when Matthew hit last year, we lost power and they had theirs up and running before we did.

    Still got power, Spectrum service out. Thinking about nailing 2x4s to crossbrace front door (opens inward)...occasional brief but strong pressure every now and then. Pretty sure its only gonna get worse.

    I'm relieved that the hurricane died down to a category 1 considering what it could've been (aka Andrew). But now there's Jose left to contend with...

    I believe the worst has passed here in North Tampa.

    We had no real damage and by some stroke of luck we had power and internet through the storm and now.
    In general,Tampa had upturned /trees blocking roads and some flooding with half the city losing power.

    My uncle in Miami had part of his roof ripped off and lost power but he's ok.

    No power, no damage done to any homes in the area except for one building. Trees everywhere, small and large. A few really large ones did take the L. Currently about half the city has power which is actually good when you consider the EYE went right over us. One store decided to open and was packed within 5 minutes. I'm headed to my sisters to charge my phone for the night.

    Stay safe everyone.
