Hope All Is Well With Mesh and the Guys on the Florida Coast

Recommended Posts

I can't believe Dorian hung around the Bahamas that long. I haven't been able to get through to my son. He's in Port St. Lucie. Seems to be headed northwest now. Be safe if you're in the path!

I'm on the west coast.  A  little rain from an outer bands but that's all.  We lucked out on where Dorian is apparently going rather than the initial projections.

I've got in-laws in the Charleston S.C. area that may get more than I got.

I'm on the east coast about even with the eye right now. The wind has been blowing from the north since Sunday and with frequent rain squalls. Definitely tropical storm force and I believe I heard 48mph on the radio. This is nothing compared to the Bahamas.

My son is in Coral Springs.  Talked to him.  They were just getting rain now and then.

Also got an uncle in Fort Pierce.  Heard from him last night.

Praying constantly...

Dorian passed right over us when it was starting to form into a hurricane, but we were SOOOO lucky - all we got was some moderate winds and a bit of heavy rain - my thoughts are with the poor people of the Bahamas and I also hope it will dissipate now and not do too much damage to Florida and the East coast

Just finished boarding up the place and getting ready to ride this out. We're all hoping for the best and hopefully it won't be too bad. Really felt for the folks in the Bahama's.....much prayers needed for them. 

Will keep chiming in until the power goes out......appreciate the thought and prayers.

It's starting to move away from me. I live just south of Fort Pierce.

No damage to the home, haven't lost power yet, but the ground is wet, trees are leaning, so that is still a possibility.

People with boats that can make the crossing will probably collect food and supplies. I've got a lot of non-perishable food I bought for the hurricane, if someone is going, the food is theirs. I also plan to donate blood, as type O is very versatile. If I didn't have gigs lined up, I'd volunteer to go over and help.

I feel for the Bahamians. If you can do something for them, please do, they are good neighbors.

Seeing the aerial photos of the Bahamas I'm amazed there wasn't more deaths. I'm glad there wasn't.  What a disaster. Hope this country comes together, stops the bickering and do what needs to be done to help.

They started collecting for a Boat-Lift today. The paper listed a number of collection points, I chose the closest and was happy to see a half dozen people there making donations.

I had an 8'x10' cabin tent I haven't used in a few years and figured someone without a house needs it more than I do so I donated it, along with an ice-chest cooler.

I went out and bought a case of Vienna Sausages, huge pack of 30 rolls of toilet paper, and a case of D cell batteries and added that to the donation.

They should be on their way to the Bahamas by tomorrow morning as long as the seas aren't too rough.

Local boat owners are donating their time and fuel to cart these supplies over and give them to the people who need them. By many of us doing a little each, it will mean a lot.

Great to know you’re in one piece, Mesh.

There were too many donations from our 3 county area for a boat lift so my tent, food and paper plus the contributions of hundreds of others are now on an ocean-going barge pulled by a tug to the Bahamas. It should get there by tomorrow.

It's a good start, but our good neighbors to the east will need help for a long time to come.

Only physically, and that's also debatable. B|
