Been a while since there were 2 tropical systems over the South at one time. Hope It Doesn't Happen Again!!
Shana beat me to it again, except in other words.

Actually it's been a while since there WEREN'T two tropical systems over the South at one time. Seems like a new one every single weekend.

Hi to all out there. Bradenton made it through. We came within a few short feet of having water in our downstairs, the surge was awesomely frightening. Whitecaps in the mangroves across the street and then into the street, and there it stopped... just a flat 30 feet from the front door. The debris line is thick in the road and consists of mostly garbage rather than natural debris. Who knew there were so many beer bottles on the bottom of the bay? Anyway, it's quite clean now. We lost the gutters and some of the front soffit, but we were blessed with little damage.

Only 50k people without electric tonight in Manatee Co. Better than expected. A few missing roofs, lots of shattered signs, Palma Sola Bay area homes, a few with water in the downstairs. Other than that all seems mostly well. The econo lodge on Anna Maria lost her roof. Tourists okay tho.

I'm still here!
