    about a single female friend who lives in Florida. She was trying desperately to find someone to board up her windows, and nobody could help. Then, she was supposed to call me or text me to let me know how she is doing. No texts, and I haven't been able to get a hold of her! Damn, she lives by herself with her old dog. I am a very worried and have been praying for the best. I have a bad feeling. :(

    She was not able to evacuate. She said she would hide in her bathroom if things got bad. Fuck!

    God bless her, hope she's OK! As you know we were in southern GA and bugged out to northern GA, but southern GA had nothing to compare with Florida. Keep us updated, just now prayed for her. Let us know soon as you find out.

    Hopefully she's ok, Abner. There aren't a lot of reports of fatalities, but reportedly something like 1/3 of the people in FL are without power, and presumably without phone or cell service as well. So she might just be out of touch until communications come back up.

    Lots of reports of people helping others. I'm betting she's sitting in some shelter somewhere getting bored.

    Ok. Funny story. I just got back from church, and a lit three candles. One for Kim, one for you and one for my friend Chocolate. Then I kneel down to pray, when the sudden urge to urinate hits me! Darn it, I drank two Gator Aides before going there! So I said my prayers VERY quickly! Then I got out of there to go back home as fast as I could. The bathrooms at the church were closed because it was late already! Oh well, I accomplished my mission anyway. I tried anyway, darn it! It was so peaceful there, even there the church band was practicing when I went in.

    She was scared to death last time I spoke to her because she does not have homeowner's insurance! Geez! She can't afford it being single!

    I'm with Kizmet. She's probably fine, just without power. Either way there's nothing you can do, so for now you must be the reed that bends rather than the trunk that breaks.
