Thank you Noel, and here I was worried about close relatives in Miami...we slaughtered 4 geese today, and did our best to secure all the trees...some pots made it inside or in a shed, some I just lashed together, as they are in a small gully beside the house, semi protected...made sure all the inground trees are staked and secured...picked up all debries around the trailer....we have been doing some work on the trailer, so lots of things to do.

Looks like we will get a brush with this storm, but not the full fury..but one never knows...here it is unseasonably cool, and I worry about our 11 day old chicks keeping warm, just added a heating pad to their coop to go with the heat lamp.

Speaking of saftey in the sanctuary, King Joash was hidden there for quite a while untill the bloodthirsty Queen Athalia was dispacthed with...by Lewiim (levites). :) see Chronicles II Chapter 23, kings II chapter 11.

Inshalla, thank you. :) Hopefully this time the forecasters will be correct and this storm will skirt us. We do what we can, the rest we leave to G-D. :)

Edited to add...the beast is ashore now...moving up central Florida from the west coast...please G-D spare the decent folk...and help find merit to save those in need!

The latest:
http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATCPAT1+shtml/110856.shtml

Irma has a very large wind field. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) mainly to the west of the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 415 miles (665 km). The Mayport Naval Station near Jacksonville, Florida, recently reported sustained winds of 68 mph (109 km/h) and a wind gust of 87 mph (141 km/h).

That's what we have now, lots of wind and rain...reports of millions without power...I am on solar power just hoping we get some sun tommorow...not likely but you never know...

Thanks to all, it is still gusting and raining here...had to put a tarp over the chicken pen-coop this morning to keep the chicks dry....the wet I can handle, but the cold and wind is a pain....got totally soaked giving feed and clean water to our animals....

Center of storm is east of us by about 120 miles...but the bands of wind-rain extend many hundreds of miles.

Amazing the size of this storm and the energy it unleashes.

Very sadly, its a horrendous human tragedy but also very sad it must destroy untold numbers of farm land, natural habitat, wildlife and pets.

Pino, it was pretty big, thankfully it lost a lot of steam before hitting naples FL and Tampa. We came out with just some minor dammage to inground trees, especially those at higher spots...some weaker trees like sand pines fell down.

The highways are clogged with evacuees returning home, some shelves are depleted at the local Walmart (like diapers, water, plastic cups and paper plates,vegetables,etc.)...but Gasoline and most commodities can be had where I am.

I can only immagine what others are going through, thank G-d we are fine....others are not so blessed right now.
