Re: HURRICANE IRMA LOUNGE

Gulfport, Florida:
OK, reality setting in. The "Tampa Bay" storm that threatens almost every year and always teases and does very little, may very well be focused on us this year. And this is not "just some typical" hurricane.

Irma...

Certainly one of the record storms of the Atlantic, and also I am sure a record for media attention. Harvey is a hard act to follow, but Irma has earned the respect she deserves.

Irma...

24 hours from now Tampa Bay will likely be dealing with the storm we've dodged for so long. Granted, Sarasota, Ft. Myers, or other cities further south may take the brunt. But for we who live in the Tampa Bay area, this may be the storm of the century.

Honestly, we can "feel" it in the air already.
