Finally a chance to sit down and recap the storm from Plant City.
1 - Really not much of a storm. I am pretty sure we never had above hurricane force winds here except maybe in gusts. It has lost a LOT Of its energy before it reached us (thank the Lord!!). Once the central feature passed us, most thought we were in the 'eye', as the rain shut off like a spigot and the winds really died down. At that point, I went to bed knowing we were safe.
2 - For damage...my property had ZERO...fence went down on my neighbors behind but that is because they are too cheap to put it up right (gone down 3 times in 5 years). Leaves and light limbs down, raking continues apace. I really only saw ONE big tree down through the main street in my neighborhood. New rain gauge overflowed at 5 inches but I don't think by much!
3 - Many still without power. We only lost it for 14 hours and I barely got to shake the cobwebs out of my generator. A friend is using it since. MOST Of the power issues I see are because the utilities are doing a crappy job of keeping the trees away from the power lines!! MANY thanks to all of the power crews working round-the-clock to restore power.
4 - My mom's property on a Polk County Lake was a bit worse, but with the winds coming off the lake unhindered that is to be expected. Had a large cypress lean onto her house and damage the soffitt but it doesn't look like water got in. Power is off because a large old oak fell across the power lines....the burns in the grass and ground are pretty spectacular!
5 - Driving down Highway 60 through Hillsborough and Polk counties today, you really saw very little evidence that a hurricane had struck except for a few trees and power out to 3 or 4 intersections.
6 - It is obvious that Central Florida has had another major escape from a major hurricane. If it had gotten to us with Cat 3 winds, I shudder to think where we would be....RIP Irma!
