    Default Hurricane Irma

    To all of my fellow Floridians, I wish you safety and protection from this massive storm. Be safe at home or on the road if you plan to evacuate. Well wishes! I'm very, very scared for us all.

    On the safe side of the Atlantic ( safe from hurricanes at any rate) we watch with awe and dread. For all members of this group who are anywhere near the danger zone, do get on-line as soon as you can when its gone, to tell us that you at least escaped... we will be waiting and hoping.....

    Yes, wishing my fellow Floridians well as Irma approaches us. The winds have already started picking up a little here in Miami, and we should have tropical force winds by tomorrow (Saturday) morning. House is shuttered and orchids not mounted on trees are now inside. Hopefully I got rid of all the lizards, etc. before I brought them in.
