Hurricane Irma Check-in

Wanted to see how my fellow Boxster-philes impacted by Irma are faring. Slight damage to my new fence, all trees upright, no real house damage and cars are intact.

We had the Eye wall go right over us just east of Tampa. It was pretty hairy, but we never lost power. Lost some trees and the pool enclosure was damaged.

All good in Panama City Beach. I've got a brother in New Port Richey and a Son in Orlando....both came through without any issues. My Son was without power for about 24 hours. My brother lost power for less than a minute. Pretty amazing and we are are thankful.

Here in Lake City, no power, only 1 tree fell and hit nothing, and minor flooding in the garage, but not on the Boxster side

You guys got lucky. Good to hear no Boxster died, yet? They don't make Miami and other parts of Florida look pretty on the local TV here. Looks like total devastation to me :/

We feel the pee already here in AP. Not only one but two pushing themselves and both gaining intensity. One heading right on top on my new Immobolizingzer, what else.

Long life to the Swampsters

We bugged out to Tennessee for the storm.
When we got back to Port Saing Lucie, FL (on the east coast) everything was fine.
