How are you weathering Fay ?


Still waiting to see what Fay will bring to my area.So far we are mostly overcast with sporatic rain. Kinda keeps a body on pins and needles. We have stored up food and drink,and secured most things. Still have to put the potted plants under cover it the winds start.
Best of luck to all the other floridians.
Bill

Fay


Hi
Best wishes to all and hope that all are save and sound.
Has anyone heard of any damage in the Plant City Area....between Tampa and Orlando?
My patents have a home there and we have not heard anything from the area.
Thanks
Gary

Orlando Tampa area have not been touched by anything but rain as far as I've heard. I'm about 10 miles from Orlando and was sitting here thinking *they canceled school for this? It's nerve racking though watching the weather and not knowing which direction it's going in next. It very well could turn around and come back across, or whatever it feels it wants to do for that matter. Just praying that it keeps on going straight.

Stay safe Bill and all you other Floridians! Will be praying for all of you.

Here in North Alabama we just got a steady drip/drop of rain all day.

Enough to just make the dirt on your car run and not wash completely away.

Everything is cool here.

Unhappy


We just noticed our Water damage today. Our south living room wall has to be completely replaced with dry wall and insulation. It mildewed so fast! Didn't even know anything was wrong till we pulled the couch out to clean. Grrr. Fay didn't hit us hard with rain until Thursday night up until Friday evening. It's still raining off and on too. It's so bad East though, my little bit of damage doesn't add up to a hill of beans with what all those folks are dealing with. Pray that all you that are dealing with Fay now are safe and sound!

Been watching the radar, and wondering if it'll push another 175miles west to give me a flooding rain? That outer band is getting closer.....

Some places got 22" of rain! Amazing amount of water. From drought to flood in one day.....

Hey,Y'all,
Hav'nt been able to have any satellite internet for the past four days.We had a lot of rain,(double digets)some minor flooding ,and a few trees down in my area.Luckily we missed having major wind gusts to topple more of them.
This is the third time I have tried to get online, and failed the others because we were dead center in the rotation and the bands of rain had me boxed in.
I had a nursery order come in Tuesday when the rain had just started.I healed in the tree and shrubs to keep them from drying out. I picked a low area, so when the ground saturated they ended up underwater in a shallow pond.I guess they will be alright.I will be out there tomorrow putting them in properly.
Sorry to hear about your livingroom wall,SouthernCharm1. I hope the repairs go well for you. Seeing the pictures of all the trees that crushed vehicles and went into houses we can be thankful that we did'nt have major damage of that kind. Someone else in the area had a sinkhole open up under their home to a point that they condemmed the place.They are afraid the whole house might be swallowed up.
Now is the time for recovery. I thank everyone who prayed to protect us.
Bill

Thank God you are ok Bill. The news reports of the damage were frightening. I'm so glad you are finally back on to reassure us.
