We lost power 20 minutes ago. I am surprised we lasted that long given the winds and rain we are having which are still very nasty.

Sonas is getting a bit of a battering against the dock, and is bouncing against her lines, but is doing fine so far.

We have some water coming into the attic through two roof vent flashings but managing that through towels.

I can see the naval station from my back deck, the following is from the 5am NHC update:

The Mayport Naval Station near Jacksonville, Florida, recently
reported sustained winds of 68 mph (109 km/h) and a wind gust of 87
mph (141 km/h).

Downtown St Augustine is totally flooded. I lost power for about 4 minutes and it came back on.NE Fl dodged a bullet on this one. Cat 1 by the time it rolled in. Still blowing here but slacking off.

If they were at St Augustine Marine or Oasis boat yard, they should be ok. still probably can't get to boatyard due to street flooding nearby.

Just saw the conditions in Jacksonville, Daytona, St. Augustine areas and hope it passes soon. Things are deceptive here this morning. People driving around, roads and streets passable, just no electricity for most, but this morning is so in contrast to what we've just experienced (well except for the storm forecasts we have). Then we see NE Florida and realize it's still wreaking havoc. Some areas ready to start cleanup while others just getting hit.

Hoping GA and SC are treated gently although see large power outages in the Savannah area.

The best in recovery to each of you. Hopefully your losses are manageable, but most of all hope you all make it through safe and well.

Each area now faces it's own challenges as does each person. May we all find the strength we need to persevere. Our curfew ends in an hour and we're getting ready to start, whatever that means with so much unknown at this point. The webcams of the beach are so in contrast of what just happened as are the shots of downtown Miami where the streets were flooded.

I hope no one in the Jacksonville or Savannah areas was lulled into a false security putting them at risk.

Best of luck to all.

Before the storm, she told me she was just going to nose up into some mangroves. Given the outcome of the storm and the lack of surge that we expected, she probably did pretty good with that strategy, maybe even better than a lot of us. I just sent her a text.

Janice is fine, but left Seaweed as reported above, in mangroves with spyder web of lines, but msn is she fuming! She was told she could get back to her boat right away, but she has to wait. Never heard her so angry.

Plantation Fla here, coming back to normal. Lots of small trees shedding branches, and a few big trees with east expose tipped over.
Only lost power for about 15 min around 6:30 Sun night.
This morning had a big convoy of out of state power trucks heading south pass by.
Gonna start my clean up soon.

I tried to get to Possum this morning but couldn't. Too many roads blocked by fallen trees and cops. I live south of US1 and Possum is north. The cops made it very difficult to cross.

Tomorrow should be better.

I seem to have Internet over my data plan but damn if I can make a phone call.
House is ok. Lost two Mango trees and several beautiful flowering trees. My wife is heart broken. One of the trees was a Lang Lang that smelled beautiful.

Thought you were in the perfect hurricane hole but looking at videos of St. John's, concerned. Are things residing a little? I saw a couple of bridges had reopened but not the main one to the beach. Hope it's not still rising.

Thanks, Larry. Worried about her, even though I only know her vicariously through TF.

Re-entry for mere citizens always tends to be a hassle. My experience is that the main and obvious routes will have a checkpoint manned by a platoon's worth of cops and guard. At the same time, if you're willing to navigate back roads and work your way through, you can usually find a hole in the coverage. Once your in, usually no problem with cops other than "How the heck did you get here?" questions. ID and "That's my boat (house, momma's house, etc.) over there - checking on it" does the job.

My thoughts and good wishes with all of you in the zone. This has caused me to have one foot back in Katrina.

Well, the boat is her home and really far more than that. She's put so much into it and it's got her heart and soul invested. Of all the boats owned by members here, hers is the one I most hope is ok.

I understand about Janice, I think we all admire and respect what she has done. Happy she is safe and I'm sure she can get to her boat shortly.
