Thanks Curly. Yeah, we dodge a bad mother and were fortunate by the grace of God.

That's good to know Curly. On the return trip I went through Orlando and didn't see much structural damages but id notice some water on the roads. Port St. Lucie would have been affected by the storm surge and flooding. Hope all turns out well.

Yeah I remember hearing about how long it took to get services back to areas. Glad this time was not nearly as bad.

Glad you made it ok Norm. Andrew was a bad mother for those in Homestead. I'm in west Kendall so I think we got something like the 120+ mph winds when Andrew blew by.
