Coming in to make a quick post while I can. Today is "game day" for me here. Hurricane Matthew is already starting to wreak some havoc on my area. It's going to make a direct hit around the Daytona Beach area, I'm 28 miles from that area. It is coming as at a category 4, with winds being forecast for 135-156 mph. We ARE going to lose electric and have been advised we can be without electric from a few days to several weeks. While I'm without electric I will have no ability to respond to emails, there will be no phones and cell service will be hit and miss for awhile. This is the worst storm in Florida history, we are under a state of emergency, 2500 National Guard have been called up, 4000 are ready for active duty according to Govenor Scott's last address an hour ago.
If you have anything with me, I have sandbagged the shop, put all motors, cores, plated components, etc. in bins and on tables/work benches, covered with tarps and plastic sheeting to prevent anything from getting wet, should I lose my roofs. If cores still had their boxes with them they have been moved to my dining room and they are safe. I do not know when I get can get back over here to update status. The situation here right now is very fluid and very tense. The actual "hit" will be approximately 2 a.m. Friday October 7 and we're advised we will be dealing with this storm for approximately 25 hours until we're down to tropical storm winds, etc. and damages can be assessed.
If you're so inclined, please say a prayer for ALL the residents of FL. We're going to need any and all prayers. http://www.myfoxhurricane.com/
