Default Hey Steven - are you OK?

Tropical Storm Debbie seems to be doing a real number on the west coast of Florida.

I have been following the storm with interest...email a few friends and just tons of rain and high tides causing coastal flooding a few tornado's and other mayhem...

Hopefully he is fine, but electric off all over the place so he may be off the grid so to speak and without internet and electric...

Where are you Steven...update with pictures please...

Jim

Hi Guys: thanks for your comments. I am fine. We are still having heavy rain bands move thru and some breezy weather. I live inland to the east of Tampa, and not real problems. There was a lot of flooding on the west side, and Bayshore Drive, which is a long street that runs beside Tampa Bay was completely flooded.

So far, the little lake behind the house has risen several feet, but it has not come into my back yard yet. Another rain band is coming thru as I type this. It has more or less been raining constantly since last Friday.

There were some areas that had property damage from some winds and one unfortunately lady got killed when a tornado hit their house. the storm is slowly drifting off to northern Florida, so the northeastern part of the state will be getting more rain. So in my location, we are lucky that it is only rain that we are getting.

Here is a shot taken looking out on my back yard, taken just a few minutes ago. You can get an idea of the rain that we are getting.

Hi, Steven. We're all glad you're OK (and I am amazed you haven't lost electrical power). Sounds like no one went to work there today.

Ted

PS: Seems like the worst part of this storm is how slowly it's moving.

Thanks Ted. There has been power losses in certain areas, but we are lucky that most of the utilities in my area are underground. Apparently that helps reduce the power outages.

Yes, a lot of folks stayed home. Several of the bay bridges were closed, and the big Sunshine Skyway Bridge has been closed for several days. However, I'm home now because I am out of work. My last gig ended and I'm between jobs.

Hi Ted. Not at the moment, I have been working in the mortgage banking industry, and it is not in its best shape right now. But something will eventually come along. Fortunately, Sharon is still working.
(So I guess I will be a house-husband until I find another job.)
