    • That’s the same place we got worked on in Springfield. Replaced the muffler and flex pipe on the smart last fall. Neither job was that much fun. 
    • well, .. to you too!!  Yea, my fun with the tools, they refused to fix their broken junk, wanted to upsell me and lock me in for 2 more years.  I told them to get their crap off my property and never come back.  I DO NOT miss them on freaking bit!
    • We stayed in the RV on the east coast (as recommended by the Governor).  Wednesday night and Thursday we had VERY heavy rain and winds about 60 MPH.  Other than some water leaks, we had no issues.  Lots of standing water and tree debris (nothing serious).  We never lost power in the campground but many others in the area did. We heard from neighbors that some of my antennas were down but no other damage at the house.  Today we took a day trip over to the house so I could run the generator to power the chest freezer while I took down the remains of my antennas to prevent roof damage.  Lots of downed trees, power lines and flooded roads.  The good news is that power crews are working everywhere you look.  We had a heck of a time getting across the Peace river.  We had to back track a long ways to find a route that was not flooded.    Power is out to the entire county and fuel is scarce so we brought along a bunch of 5 gallon gas cans for neighbors.   When we got back to the east coast we discovered there are fuel shortages here as well.  We got diesel at one station, but they had run out of gas.   A second station had gas (cash only), but no diesel.  I am hoping this is a temporary situation.  We need to go out tomorrow so will look some more. So far this has been very similar to the Irma experience.   Both storms passed directly over our house but did very little damage.  Much of this can be attributed to stronger building codes post Andrew.  We'll take the RV back in a couple of days and use it as a lifeboat until power is restored.  We'll be well stocked with food, water, and fuel for the generators and treat this like a boondocking trip to Quartzsite.  Safe Travels...  
    • That's good news for The Resort, but unfortunate for the others. Thanks for the update!
    • Thanks! That's good news! I knew the area was out of the direct path, but I wasn't sure how much wind and rain they would get. Our travel schedule for this winter didn't allow for a stop there, but we've always enjoyed the area when we do get to spend some time there.
