Info on how I(and the Family)made out...Hurricane Frances...

Recommended Posts

Just got POWER back this morning. :lol:

A 80' tree went down on my 24'x50' garage, well 6" from it.

It did NOT do a FREE for all fall...if it would have....my garage(bikes too)would have been history.......for sure.

About 70-100 shingles off roof too. Trees down everywhere. Just unreal and the Hurricane was only a High Cat.1 or a Low Cat.2 Storm. A Cat.4 or Cat.5 would just seem like a bomb going off. :devil:

4 days with water and power $ucks!!!! Still NO GAS or MILK and the traffic.....well lets just say if only I had a GUN.(just kidding on that)

Here are some pics:

This one is me surfing:

Thanks Fred!! :thumbsup:

My Video Camera has everything on the House, Garage and Rental House(next door to house)for Insurance. I'll try to get it for everybody though(tree pic). :devil: I did cut it down because I thought it would end up falling on the garage.

chrome-crf(Chris)......watch out for this next Hurricane. It just might be coming your way!!

BK14MX(Brian)......I here you about the cell phones. :lol:

You are sure right about Palm Bay getting it Bad from the Hurricane too. Trees down everywhere!! Still NO GAS, BREAD and MILK. :thumbsup:.... :lol:

You know we had NO GAS that Wednesday and the Hurricane hit Saturday. :devil: Telling everybody to leave, but NO GAS for days before and now days after. What's up with that. :D Plus, if this other Hurricane comes though the state at us then what??? NO GAS.......?? :D Just unreal......!!! :D

Oh, thanks about the right...but it's really a Left. The Surf Shop that Posted it for me switched the pic around. Don't know why, but they did. :snore:
