Hurricane Ian

Post by ocean » September 26th 2022, 5:35pm

As of about 20 minutes ago about 90% of the prep has been completed! Tampa is under mandatory evacuation which means my job got considerably harder as they are heading my way we weren’t going to take any bookings and if needed shut down ourselves. This is going to be an extremely stressful time for me as I’m responsible for everyone’s safety. I was actually thinking about not staying on property and with my family but that might not be in the cards. Bridges shut down at 40 mph sustained winds. My guess is that once again I’ll clock in about 7am and clock out around 8pm on Friday. Anything over 50 hrs with my company is considered overtime. Sleep will be a luxury item for me for the next several days. Being on the dirty side of the storm is dump a lot of rain the scariest part the dirty side spalls tornados that aren’t seen until it’s too late in the driving rain.

On the lighter side is that it’s called Ian and I have been dealing with that hurricane since the day he was born and now all of Florida has to deal with him. Ha

Fingers crossed for you. Hoping for the best for all of Florida. looks good for us here in Delray Beach except for possible tornados but this thing can turn on a dime. We evacuated for the last big one and got nothing but this time we are standing pat so look out.

Home for tonight back in about 5 for the duration. Thanks for the well wishes nothing we haven’t done before but now have to do it with guests. Hope they don’t mind walking stairs at 45 mph we start having issues with the elevators depending on wind direction.

Current sustained winds of 155 Cat 4, catastrophic storm Category 5 sustained winds 157mph.

Expected rain fall 10-16 inches with the current state of the rivers ( running at about a foot over average) and the ground saturation widespread flooding throughout the region.

All we have up/over here are earthquakes, volcanos and possibly a Tsunami.
Hurricanes honestly would scare the crap out of me.

To you and yours Lord Ocean, hoping all stay safe!
Much appreciated! I just got out of the beachside emergency services briefing and I’m not going to lie I don’t like what I heard. Later tonight with this moving as slow as it is and the now cat 4 storm/expected to be a cat 5 when it hits land coming pretty much straight to my back door as a cat 1 losing momentum to a tropical storm but 24-36 hours of rain and wind

We’re now right in its crosshairs. Probably be offline for a bit - when the power goes it takes the phones and the internet with it.

But far enough inland storm surge is a non-issue locally. We live in interesting times.

Our power went out but back on now. Tornado touched down about 2-3 miles from us last night but we didnt even know it. Loudest thunder and brightest lightning I have ever seen along with moderate wind and thunderstorms. Been very lucky so far, we seem to be in the area the least affected by Ian in Fl. 12 whole ft elevation here and not prone to flooding so hope to be spared.

Stay safe boys. I haven't missed the hurricane season since I left Florida in 1988. Went to the destroyed Homestead AFB to help our sister unit dig out in I think 1993. They moved to Patrick AFB later and are still there supporting NASA launches aside from the combat search and rescue mission.

Good luck to all of You!
Luckily my aunt and husband from Orlando are here in Europe for a visit. But her husbands 93 y old mother is back at home.
I do believe they were planning to return coming weekend. They may need to postpone that a bit.

The only announcement that strikes terror into the hearts of southerners:

They’ve closed the *Waffle Houses* in the storm’s path. That’s a BFD - when Andrew caused the Miami storm track site to evacuate they all went next door for waffles.
