Yep, you're absolutely right.In case folks don't know, this Waffle House thing is a real thing. Major storm predictor.
and this in a state whose homeowners insurance system is a disasterlandfalling now. Reports are 10'+ of storm surge, and when the western eye wall lands, they are saying it could get to 18' of storm surge. Can't even imagine. Various local stations predicting this to be the costliest hurricane in the state EVER.
Gotta love our country. There was, at last notice, 28 states that have sent some type of disaster relief and personnel to Florida to assist once they can actually get out safely to do so. Right now on the border of Sarasota County and Manatee county even the emergency response people and police have been pulled into safe places. It is too dangerous to be out. These photos do not show the rain pelting down and the debris flying by very well. But then I took them through the windows. Suffice it to say I wont be going out to get the mail anytime soon.There's a lot of crews from out of state over here in Miami waiting for the storm to end and go to SWFL to help.
