The Storm

Hello everyone, I've made it through the storm.  I'm sorry about not putting out a letter on Sunday or Wednesday, but as you all know, Hurricane Irma made a visit to our part of Florida and well, things just took a bit of time to get 'normal".
 
For some in Florida, normal won't be for two years. For others like me, normal started showing up Thursday when the power came on. So, while I don't want to bore you with all the gory details, let me give you the Readers Digest version of things.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday. 

First off let me start with this.... I'm going to be preoccupied with Irma today. This monster is still bearing down on us and I'm going to use a lot of today to prepare my place as best as possible. Judging by the latest maps, there's simply no way out of this mess. It's going to land on Florida somewhere, and with the wind cone as big as it is, there's no place in Florida that won't get blasted.  I've got a lot to do. Even gasoline is a problem. Most stations are out and the ones that still have fuel often have 30 or more cars in line.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a great one for you all.  Just a heads up, this coming weekend is a 3 day event for us market watchers. The market  is closed on the 20th for Washington's birthday.

Hello everyone, welcome back from what I hope was a long and wonderful weekend. After enjoying the Thanksgiving Holiday, the wife and I did some fun "poking around" the west coast of Florida, taking in the scenery. Florida is indeed a beautiful state if you like the water. There's so many miles of mangroves and islands, and rivers and bays. It's really gorgeous. Oh and speaking of gorgeous, right now we are experiencing exactly why so many people come here for the winter. Yesterday we did our bike ride and it was bright sunny, not a cloud in the sky, 79ish... just perfect.  Cooler nights and perfect days is what put the west coast of Florida on the map from Nov - March

Hey everyone....

NOTE>>>  I probably won't be doing an afternoon update. As you might imagine this goofy Hurricane that's coming up from the Bahama's has us all on edge. Granted we're on the west coast, and the models still have it hitting the East coast and traveling north. The problem however is that Florida's only 150 miles wide. So if this thing drifts just a little bit more to the west, all the people that evacuated from Miami and Broward to come our way, are going to find that we're catching hell too. So I'll probably err on the side of safety and use this afternoon to batten the hatches.

Hello all, welcome back from the weekend. As always I hope it was a good one for you all. My heart goes out to all our friends in Louisiana who have suffered through those horrendous rains. 20 inches in 24 hours is something very few people have ever had to deal with. Down here in Florida, we've been getting torrential rains every day, but at least they're only lasting 45 minutes or so.  It's bothersome, but not threatening. The folks in the New Orlean's area are in trouble.  Our prayers go out to them.

Good morning all, welcome back from the weekend. As always I hope it was a great one for you all. For the first time in a long time, the wife and I "escaped" for a couple days, and enjoyed the Florida coast at Madeira beach. It's a really fun area and if you get the chance you should take a run over to St. John's pass. Along with a neat boardwalk along the inlet, there's a fun group of shops, eateries, bars, etc.  It was really a fun time.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. As always I hope it was a great one for you. Down here in "much too chilly" Florida, the wife and I got a chance to "escape" for a couple days and spent a fun afternoon poking around in one of our favorite Florida places. It was really fun, however... the wind and temps kept a lid on some of the things we would have liked to do. I know a lot of the nation is in very cold conditions, but we're "below the frost line".  Deep cold is supposed to be rare. Ha! We've had frost 3 times and Saturday am we woke up to just 39 degrees. For us cranky old Floridians...that's cold!

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I'm hoping it was a fun one for you all. Down here in Florida, the weather simply couldn't have been better with bright blue skies and temps in the mid 70's.  But like most things in life it brings a downside. All the people fleeing the snow and cold of the north have come down to FL and as each year progresses the traffic gets worse and worse.  We call it "in season" when the snowbirds come south. So for the locals, in season brings traffic, long lines, waiting times for restaurants, packed parking lots, etc. I've only been here 10 years and the difference between then and now is startling. Oh well. The birds will fly back north in June and things will become a bit more normal.

I’m not going to win any friends with this letter and I couldn’t care less. If you don’t agree with what I’m about to go off on, we probably don’t have much in common anyway. I know, pretty nasty words coming from someone who speaks to the public, but sometimes it’s best to just get raw and lay it out.
