Ducked out a few minutes ago. Anyone who thinks living inland FL is safe from Hurricanes should think again. This is N. FL, Alachua county about 20 miles north of Gainesville out in the country. Front of my house. Still blowing like a souped up hooker. On generator, will be for a few days. Frankly, the whole state is a mess. Public utilities are a mess. Storm isn't letting up and it's hampering utility crews.

nice homestead there. Hope the hurricanes leave you alone, other than wind and rain. we had a F5 tornadoe through here about 12 years ago, and that was scary as hell. it only lasted for about an hour tops, I couldn't immagin 100 mph winds for several hours/days. stay safe.

I wish i had still had my digital camera. You guys would just be in awe from how it looked after charley. Good luck CS. Nice looking house.

Campy... lots of FL looks like that. Luckly Charley took most of the trees so Frances didn't have much to throw.

stay safe cs223! i hope everything works out well for you.

Hell, it's normal in Ohio.
Or, it used to be, before everyone moved into subdivisions, which get clear-cut before the houses get built.
Shade trees are great and probably cut the A/C bill in half in Florida.
