    Thanks. I’m not a “flyer”, I never would have thought of that.
    I’d have to rent a car for a one way trip and turn it in at Atlanta airport , it wouldn’t cost that much.

    And the grocery stores and gas stations are experiencing a run, it is that way all over Florida.
    Good luck, but should luck not hold out, just stay in whatever part of the house will be away from the tree--should it come down. I know you know, just saying. I've been there and done that.

    Last year we noticed that a stray limb of a tree from the city's green space was leaning closer and closer to our roof. We had a service come here and take it down. Now, technically, technically, technically, I arranged to have a private contractor destroy a city possession.

    Then again, I like "private contractors." They work for cash, there's no paperwork, and they even clean up after themselves.

    Edit: BTW, I couldn't help seeing this post and wondering if it dealt with "The Picture of Dorian Gray."

    5:00 PM update today shows it coming ashore south of Cape Canaveral as a Cat 4, then turning and going up the coast and still being a Cat 2 when it gets to Jacksonville Wednesday afternoon.
    Even if I could fly out before it got here, I don't believe I could leave the wife here alone with the animals with a Cat 2. Cat 1, yes, no problem, but a 2 is different.

    I realized I couldn't rent a car to drive to Atlanta and pick up the connecting flight because I do not have a credit card. Haven't had one of those in over 30 years.

    So, assuming the airport is back in business on Thursday, I would only lose one day.
    And, if it wasn't meant to be, then it wasn't meant to be. So far I'm only out $330 for the plane ticket, and $230 for the reunion fees (2 side trips, 2 banquets, plus registration fee).

    There's always next year. San Antonio and I can drive there.

    Great we will have a whole new supply of cars coming up here in about a month. Nice clean rust free southern rigs just in time for winter.

    Noticed I just cleared 5000 posts. What's the prize??

    San Antonio will be the Society of the Fifth Division's 100th annual reunion - a big deal.
    We are the oldest continuously active unit organization in the country.

    I'll be glad to stop and buy you a cup of coffee.

    RPD,

    Son2 (Lineman for Southern Company/GA Power) just got his orders to be on standby and pack for 1 week of travel to somewhere in coastal GA or FL. His crew usually works the Savannah/Brunswick/Statesboro area so if things get too hairy down your way, let me know and maybe Son2 can call in a favor for your area. Are you serviced by Florida Power & Light?
