In all seriousness, prayers for the safety of all in this storm's path.

I live on the west coast of FL. About 1/2 way between Sarasota and Ft Myers. North Port to be exact. We are what they call flat landers. We are 5' above sea level, about 4 miles inland. But there are canals that run to about 1/2 mile from the house. I have tried to hire someone to put up my storm shutters but everyone is as old as me or are taking care of their own. I had hernia surgery last week but I guess tomorrow I'll start putting up the ones on the biggest windows.

About 5 minutes after I posted the above message a guy called me and asked if I needed any help getting ready for the storm. I met him last Jan at the hospital. He had just retired from the navy as a Navy Seal and salvage diver. He wanted to learn to fly cast and fly fish. I gave him lessons for 4 months and took him fishing in his boat. I told him I didn't want a cent for the lessons and fishing skills. I insisted I owed him.The last 2 months we have been going out every 2 weeks and he has become one hell of a fisherman. He makes 100' cast all the time and I have him using a 5 gallon buchet for a target. He reads the water very well and can spot fish quick.
Well he's coming over tomorrow with his wife, daughter and son-in-law to put up the shutters.
By golly this world is full of nice people.
Alls that ends well Big Grin Dan
