    And then what?

    The question wasn't about looting. It was about entering a state from another state.
    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    Ok,,The Fl Keys are a Microcosm.. not states,, exactly.. each unique communities.

    Right behind a Storm,, you don't want to have a Face that is not recognized.

    and that man with the Gun is the De-facto LAW.

    I can easily see a State militia doing the same in a crisis.

    Now if we could only Keep FEMA Out,, that would be a win.

    Just checking in. It’s noon and here in Sarasota lots of wind gust and sheets of rain. They’re saying landfall may be closer to Fort Myers.

    There was No looting on Big Coppitt Key.

    Idiot asked "Who are you?",, Robert said "I'm the man with the gun,, get the hell out of here"
    Did you like Big Pine or any of the middle keys? We are thinking of moving even further south in the future? From what I understand the middle keys are more rural. We miss that from living up north in new england.

    5" of rain here so far, I just had to pump out the pool. Tornado warnings passed. We are currently out of the cone, but Hurricane warning is up for the next city north. Seems to be going more south than predicted. I put up storm panels yesterday, some of the neighbors are rushing to do it now in the rain. It woud only be a 1 by the time it got to me so not really worried much.

    I like the Keys,, miss living there.

    The place was founded by Pirates., Runaways and assorted outlaws.. There is a Free Spirit that lives there.

    Stay safe. Saw video of how low Tampa bay is. Who would wait till today to put up shutters in this wind and rain.

    Well, I saw it with my own eyes, how about that?

    I had to get a shipmate of mine to his home in Pascagoula right after the storm.

    Whole sections of town were blocked off and guarded by citizen militia, if you didn't live there, you didn't get in.

    I used to live in Marathon, on Vaca key, one north of Big Pine.

    It's not rural, coastal Maine, but it's about as nice and laid back and rural as the keys can get.

    Can't vouch for what it may have turned into though.

    How much wind, Sammy?

    I'm two pins away from calling bull$#@! on the forecasters yet again.

    Look at the live streams I posted...wind and heavy rain sure, but not widespread EOTWAWKI that the spun up and out control Newz is reporting.

    We are thinking maybe Marathon or Big Pine maybe in a few years. I love the weather in Florida and the people. I don't even mind the summers. I just can't get used to the traffic and how busy everything is compared to Maine. Might just need a quieter area.

    All I can say is wow! Just wave after wave of sheets of rain. I’ve never been in a storm like this before. the views in Tampa show people out walking but here you couldn’t walk outside. Wind is incredible…

    Watching a couple storm Chasers, in Punta Gorda.. Eye pretty much collapsed on landfall just north side of Cape Coral.
    Nice Cat 4.

    No clear eye to dance in.

    the Keys did get a good rinse,,but Sloppy Joes was open, and no Shutters in sight.

    We lost power last night at 10. Seems like everything else is fine so far.

    Well a new day. Gotta say last night was pretty bad. It was no fun listening to all the wind, rain and what ever else was making noise in the dark. Didn’t sleep much. Now its sunny a little wind but not looking forward to the heat with no AC. Funny though i have partial power. Refrigerator is running and some lights. Weird…. Anyway thanks for the well wishes!

    I was just coming in to see how you made out.

    Glad to hear everybody is safe.

    You probably lost one side of the line. So you have 110 to half of your breakers but no 220. That happened to us up in Maine once.


    Our power is out. A tree fell on a line on our street. Snapped a pole in half and pulled down the lines for 2 poles over. It's a mess. I called FPL They knew the power was out but not that the line was on the ground. I think it's going to be a while. Hopefully tomorrow, but who knows?

    Massive storm surge in Ft. Myers Beach.

    If the stampman tells you to kiss his ass, shall he get away with it and live? Don't let your courage cool, or a few bullies scare you. We've nothing to fear but slavery. Love your liberty, and fight for it like men who know its value. Once lost it will never, never be regained.
