Nothing to do now except worry. I'm 6 hours away from the boat in normal driving conditions (I live near Tallahassee). It took me nine and a half hours to get home yesterday, the highways are a mess.

My son came home from college today (he is at Embry-Riddle in Daytona), my family in Jax will likely be here tomorrow. My family in Fort Myers worries me, but they should be OK, my dad's house there is really safe. Seems like Ft. Myers is going to get the better side of the storm, though that is relative.

Lots of prayers for lots of people.

As for the boat.....I just don't know. I've had boats go through three or four storms in Florida and one bad one in the Bahamas. This one scares me the most.

The one that scared me the least, Dennis in 2005, did the most damage, almost totaled my old boat. I've learned a lot about prep since then.
