The name Irma is German and it means the world or the earth. Irma is Mother Earth and she's pissed and she's headed straight for Mar a Lago and Rush Limburger's house. Rush has already hightailed it out of there.

Unless you have webbed feet and gills I think I would already be northbound. Just out of curiosity what is the blue tarp on the roof, and are you taking bets on how long it will last? :biggrin:

We have some friends also of the hardy stock SW of Homestead, that are going to ride it out as well. Prayers for all the folks in FL this weekend.

Some silly home owners think that it will save the roof tiles...The tiles like to come off in high winds.

Seems like the storm is going to the west coast. Evacuating is pointless unless you live by the ocean or in a trailer.

I'll update pics throughout the storm.

With 150+ mph winds, I'd think losing some roof tiles would be the least of their worries :ambivalence:

@tirediron maybe Dragster should start a hurricane pool on the tarp to pay for expenses!

I thought I heard on the news, that the building codes now required homes to be capable of withstanding a Cat 4, but there was speculation over what would happen in a real life scenario.

It's going to the west coast... Look at the shacks in PR and Virgin Islands, they hold up.

Hurricanes are big business in Florida. They scare the whole state into buying Gas, Propane, Water, PB&J, Plywood and Generators.

Total BS. I bought beer and chips.

Ahem!

Of course the 'ugly' side of a hurricane is historically the North and East side, which is the middle and East coast of Florida.

So there's that....

Again- I repeat my expression of concern. Staying put sound ultra dicey. Has a mandatory evac order issued for your neighborhood?
